Longing. Need. Desire. Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, has never felt any of these in his long life until a chance encounter with the Goddess of Spring. For as long as she can remember, Persephone has always been told what to do, her life dictated by people who believe they know what is best for her without taking the time to understand or listen to her. However, the opportunity to truly be herself awaits her in the most unlikely of places, sparking one of the most famous and enduring relationships that history has ever known...
I absolutely loved…I mean LOVED this book. I love mythology - I love Hades and Persephone together and I love how this book just smashed them together and it came out HOT!
Okay, lets talk about all the research that Kin did for this book. I mean, this girl knows her crap! She took all the things that I learned from school and wove this wonderful and beautiful story around it that I will admit, out of all of the Hades and Persephone books that I have read, she made this one truly unique.
Now let me say, the first half of the book is just the background of these two characters along with other gods so you really don’t get to read much about them together during this time, but this is all essential; these are the building block chapters.
On to the story, you could tell that Hades was really fascinated with Persephone on so many different levels. There was something about her when he first met her in Zeus’ garden so much so that he continued to visit her on the hidden island while she grew up. So when he finally decided it was time for her to be his Queen, which he gave her no choice in, he brought her down to the Underworld to show her all of the new world which she could rule. Honestly, if he kidnapped me, I would be 100% in it!
Now lets get on to my favorite part of the story, the moment when Hades grabbed Kora and took her down to the Underworld….WOW! Pretty steamy!!! Just their moments together were amazing and these moments really defined them as a couple (or soon to be couple, I hope.)
I can’t wait for the second book because I am addicted to this story.
