Publisher's Summary

I've been kidnapped by Zeus. Plucked from the streets of Manhattan and frightened half to death by a freaking Olympian god. And now I'm trapped in the Underworld, being forced to compete in a series of deadly trials for the position of Queen of the Underworld. Which would mean marrying Hades, the utterly terrifying Lord of the Dead. Who the hell wants a husband at all, let alone one made of smoke and riddled with death?  

I have to get back home, to New York and my brother. But I can't leave without completing the trials and they've been designed for a godly Queen, not Persephone - barista and botanical garden enthusiast. I'm surrounded by lethal, all-powerful maniacs. Sexy-as-hell maniacs, sure, but as dangerous as they come. And I'm going to have to prove to all of them that there's a goddess of hell inside me. It's the only way I'll survive the Hades Trials. But then what? And why, why, why am I so desperate to see under Hades smoky exterior and find out what he's hiding from me?   

If I win the trials, I have to marry the devil himself. But losing might mean losing my life.  

The Power of Hades is book one in the Hades Trials, which is intended for adults and is packed with magic, mythology and slow-burn soulmate romance! 

Contains swearing and mature themes.

Judged a book by its cover... total win!

Ok, here is the thing... I'm perusing the romance options looking for something to listen to at work. Usually I like something simple and steamy... I thought this book would fit the bill. I really enjoyed the story! So much so that I had to listen to something else at work because I was engrossed in the story! And then.... the credits roll (so to speak) and not one God or Goddess has had sex with anything. What??? I was a little miffed at that, felt robbed so I didn't even look for book 2. Then my mind kept going back to the story, I missed the characters, I wondered what would happen next. Came here for a good sex scene, left with a freaking excellent story.

Liked it except

Zeus, Hades and Poseidon were brothers who ruled their own realms as equals. Zeus had no control over his brothers. I liked the book except for this irritating mistake.

Wow So unoriginal! Total waste of credit and time.

This book feels like it was written by an angsty teenager. I ended up fast forwarding much of the story because it was so predictable. It’s like all these authors regurgitate their stories. Same little princess girl, meets same Mr. hot chunkyness guy who broods and girl wants to fix. “I want her I want her not but I love her I’m too damaged for her” type crap. HOW DID IT GET SO MANY STARS?!? I suppose I’m not the main audience for this book I guess.

hmmm it was good but...

Was there a sex scene and I missed it? I love also Greek mythology too and some things were just too much or didn't add up if you know the myths well. I feel like these writers would do better making up their own characters. This audiobook was entertaining but it was missing elements that made it complete for a romance novel for adults. Too many inconsistencies in Greek mythology, only a basic understanding, and a immature relationship between the hero and heroine that never materialized into anything. Great narrator and great cover, good story.

Not awful for my first audible book

It had its boring moments as most books do. Like the idea and where it’s headed

Doesn’t feel like a while book

An interesting reimagining of the story of Persephone, but doesn’t feel like a whole book. Maybe it’s the lack of build or the ‘cliff hanger’ ending but just doesn’t feel like the story went far enough or felt satisfying as a stand alone book. Not a fan of serialising without strong individual novels. Narration is a little dull but fine.

Enjoyable

I liked the narrator and the story line was really good! All in all it was a very enjoyable book and i would definitely recommend it. Hopefully the second book will come out on audible
