As a self-confessed Hades and Persephone fan girl I knew I needed to get my grabby, Greek Myth-loving hands on a copy of this ASAP! She spends about 75% of the novel complaining how everyone just goes around and takes things out of pure entertainment things that are not theirs, and yet, she does exactly this!

I most definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a unique original spin on the story of Hades and Persephone. Rather than going head over heels in love first, she had prioritized what she needed to do hence it was quite refreshing to read. She barges in to Hell, forces Hades to give her food and shelter and is surprised that Hades is not so fond of this, and somehow he is the d*ck for not being excited about helping her.And for this one, its a retelling with a bit of a mix where Persephone is the one who is smart and cunning whilst Hades is the soft one in this relationship. Our Persephone, traditionally portrayed as sweet tempered and kind, is transformed into a daring and fabulously fierce (Ancient Greek) Girl Boss, determined to seek out happiness by any means necessary—even if it means taking on the patriarchy in all its toxic, oppressive forms. I liked how she had a plan and took control and she utilised her power over flowers to achieve this. Persephone (or Kore) came over as quite immature and at times pretty annoying and Hades wasn’t much better.

I'm maybe the minority in this one, but the one thing that I could say is that, this book can be half of its volume, and it will still be good. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Since I don't want to sound too ranty, I would divide my thoughts into two parts to make it not as long.I didn't have the heart to hate it as I had loved some aspects of the story, but I also can't say that I fully loved it either. Ie exposition heavy, circular, not really communicating anything, clearly there because the author wants to use a certain line.

I love how Hades was portrayed in here (soft Hades made me swoon) and Persephone was potrayed to be a stronger but is still feminine. Having grown up on an island with only nymphs for company, Persephone is headstrong, wild and entirely ill prepared for matrimony. That’s all true here, as Persephone and Hades dance around their true feelings, both of them frightened of ruining the special bond they’ve formed. This will forever and always be my favourite book about Hades and Persephone (because I’m a little sick of the smutty or all serious no-fun ones on the market at the moment), so if you want a bomb ass fun book about fake dating and trying to take down a parthenon then please pick this one up.

Hades and Persephone just felt too different from what we associate them with, and the main focus of the story revolved around marriage for some ungodly reason. She has worked in publishing for a number of years and has a degree in English Literature from the University of Reading, where she also studied several classes in Ancient History. Different topics are dealt with which makes the reader connect to the characters on a deeper and emotional level. This book cleverly gives a contemporary feel on the low-down without shredding today's vocab into the mix and still keeping a historical Greek mythology feel.
