The review

I did not believe that this book could be worse than the first one but here it is! First, it is supposed to be a story between Persephone and Hades but this one was nonexistent from the book apart from the sex scenes. The action isn’t going forward and you have the same feeling concerning the discovery of the Underworld. Persephone is an awful brat, selfish, self-centred, always complaining instead of acting. It doesn’t seem she’s supposed to be a goddess.

In brief: Hecate and Hermes are in fact the only element I liked in this book (even more, in this series). The love interest is totally spoiled by Persephone and the fact it’s more about sex than a real relationship. I definitively DNF this series, which is sad since the original idea was quite appealing.

My rating: 2/5
