Publisher's Summary

Chaos reigns in the arena after Hades, the God of Darkness, claimed Melany for his own clan. 

Rumors say each student will be trained by their clan’s God, going to live with them. It could be the last time Melany sees her friends…or Lucian. 

She has no choice, though: She must follow Hades to the Underworld and train with him in his hall. 

She’ll learn to be stronger and fiercer. 

She’ll learn to face Hades’ darkness…the same darkness lurking inside her. 

But what if she likes it? 

Under the seductive God’s training, she may not find the way back....

Ready for the darkness?

Angel of Death in the making

I'm a huge sucker for Academy books especially ones about Greek mythology. I had been waiting for this to come out as an audiobook since I finished book one.

Melany had just been chosen by Hades to go train in the underworld leaving her beau Lucien and all her friends at the academy. Since discovering the death of her adoptive family Melany has been aching for answers but being locked away in the underworld makes her feel trapped. She is unfamiliar with the myth of Persephone which becomes more and more clear through the book.

I was so excited to see how they portrayed Hades and Persephone as they are my favorite part of Greek mythology and I'm devastated. I love versions of Hades where he isn't as awful as everyone makes him seem (Lore Olympus anybody!?) but their version makes him a total creep. Persophone is MIA and everyone is being very secretive about what has happened to her. Did she run away? Has she been kidnapped? Did she die??? As a goddess, she can't really die, and even if she did wouldn't she just go to the underworld? Maybe she has been banished to Tartarus for a crime?

Melany trains with the Harpies and seems to lose her moral compass along the way. Whenever she joins with the academy for a few training exercises she can't seem to work as a team and regularly loses her temper in bloodlust rages. I'm 100% in favor of the protagonist slowly becoming evil over the course of the story but I'm not sure that's where they are trying to go.

Even though their Hades isn't my speed the other depictions of the gods are GREAT!!
Laid-back Demeter (who must know where her daughter is????), Ares and Aphrodite colluding together for evil schemes, ignorant but bossy Zeus, Helpful Hephaestus.

The feels of the gang growing closer together while Melany is so lonely hurts my heart. I'm really excited to know what it is that Ares and Aphrodite are planning and if they are actually working under the orders of someone else.

The ending left on a cliff hanger monster attack and I'd really like to know how they deal with the grief and devastation that comes after but I'm also really scared that Lucian and Melany won't be a thing, or that Hades will be even worse than he has been so far.

I'm so conflicted and the best solution: Onwards to Book 3!!!!

Gets crazier and crazier!!

Demigods Academy: Year 2 by Elisa S. Amore and Kiera Legend and narrated by Stephen Dexter and Vanessa Moyen was a must get after Year 1.
Meet Melanie, our FMC, who has been whisked off to Hades Hall, below the academy, in the Underworld. Her boyfriend Lucien tries to get her out of there, with a few of her friends but typical Hades, blocks them from seeing her. Meanwhile, Melanie is training with the 3 Furies, befriending Cerberus, and using the abilities that got her through the trials to try and get back to her friends, only to find out that she has changed more than she thought.
Hades has his own plans for Melanie, which almost gets her killed.
Zeus decides to help out the mortal realm by sending some of his best students to help battle an out of control fire, that ends up in yet another heavy duty cliffhanger.
Would I be willing to listen to this book again? YES many times over
Would I be willing to recommend this book to others? YES
I feel that anyone over 13 should be able to handle everything in it and even learn something new as each God/Demigod/Hero is accurate to many reports I have written concerning the Greek Mythology as it pertains to said people.

Captivating sequel in a great series!

I love audiobooks that have a female voice for a female PoV and a male voice for male PoV. Both narrators did an amazing job. Listening to this story and following along was such a breeze I didn’t even notice time passing by lol.

The story is told alternating between Melany’s pov and Lucian’s pov, which is a welcome tactic because when a group seperates, you can still follow with both parties. I’ll admit, I did worry a bit that the story would focus on one part after the event of book 1 and that the other part would fall away, that it would be on hold for a certain amount of time but my worries were uncalled for. This is by far my easiest read for the year, I love this world and it’s characters.

Keep in mind though that this story does end on a sort of “nooooooooo don’t let this be the end of the book please” kind of cliffhanger.
This book was over way too soon. It has been a long time since a story could grab my attention like that, or rather, holding that attention, that is.

I can’t wait to see what Melany and her friends will have to endure in book 3. I’m slightly worried about so much still needing to be told and there being only one installment left. But since my worries at the beginning of this book proved to be uncalled for, I can only assume these ladies will nail that plotline and I can’t wait to get to know it!

Good second entry

I received an audio version of this book for review; all opinions are my own.
I enjoyed this second foray into Demigods Academy. I enjoyed Melany's claiming and how t
the authors remind us that Hades isn't the "devil" we all associate him with, I loved seeing Melany grow into her own and become strong and fierce.
On the flip side, I hated her boyfriend's sections. The narration is all wrong; he sounds way too old for Melany and their school. Plus his "save the damsel in distress" is old hat and I was so glad when she was amazing without him.
I'm ready for the next book and to see what happens to Melany next.

Captivating

I really enjoyed the world the author created. The characters and the storyline itself just keeps you interested. Melanie is sent to her clan apart from her friends and her dude. She tries to find out what happened to her mother and encounters a lot more than she can bargain for. Anyways towards the ending they are sent to a mission and Lucien gets hurt and you are left with a cliffhanger. Definitely recommend and can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment. Narrators did a fantastic performance bringing characters to life and perfect pace. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Heart wrenching ending

What a wild ride, Melanie gets claimed by Hades and ends up below grounds for training with the furies. She befriended cerebus the three headed dog and earned a visit up with her friends in the academy.
Danger and secrets lurk in the shadows and she learns to walk through the shadows to spy on the gods. She learns more than she bargains for about aphrodite plan to release a chimera. We end with tragedy and wondering if her love lucien will survive.
Some of the language is more explicit than I personally enjoy so would not recommend for younger teens.

Awesome

I received a free audiobook from the author and the review group Audiobx in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Melany has passed every single trial thrown at her at the end of her first year of Demigod Academy. No one has ever managed this before, and she's also been claimed by Hades which is incredibly strange. The gods argue, but eventually Melany is taken by Hades to the Underworld to train. Her time alone in the Underworld with only the enigmatic Hades and the bloodthirsty Furies may change Melany for good.

I really enjoyed this installment! I missed a lot of the training scenes with Mel's friends. She still got to see them a handful of times, but the changes she'd undergone in the UnderworldI made her something different from them. Seeing Mel trying to figure out Hades was fun, and I wonder if there's truly something between the two. I also loved the Furies! They were a bit resentful when they first started training her, but Mel improved a ton from their tutelage.

We also get some progression into the overall plot line aka the war the gods are training Mel and her friends for. Honestly, I wasn't surprised who was behind it. But I definitely think there's more to it than Hades is letting on. He is very cagey and he is totally hiding something. Persephone is brought up in this book and Mel doesn't know who that is which just made me cackle! But I am a bit of a mythology buff so it's fine haha.

I wish this had been a bit longer, it felt like the whole book whipped by! I want more. Also that ending was mean AF! Like what the heck!! That character better be okay or I'll be mad.

Wow

Year Two picks up right where Year One left off and it did not disappoint.

My emotions are all over the place in the best way possible. I still don't know who we're supposed to trust but I'm definitely team Hades. I loved Mel's interactions with him.

I'm looking forward to seeing where the story takes us after that ending.

Stephen Dexter and Vanessa Moyen continue to bring this amazing world to life.

grown up

Melany has grown up alot from book 1 to book. She is changing a lot because of Hades others see it except her. I don't like how Hades is playing games with Mel. I fell bad for Lucian because of the way Hades is playing game with Mel life.When you know something is wrong and bad things are happening you tell so one but what do you do if the people you tell are in on what is going on. I love this book as much as I loved book 1 the cliffhangers make it easy to want next book. Elisa S. Amore is a great story teller and Vanessa Moyen, Stephen Dexter are great in this book also.
