Persephone and Hades’ story has come to an end. I was curious to see if their story would end the way the myth is, but I was pleasantly surprised. Amelia Wilde wrote their story based on the myth while changing things up to make it new!

The mountain is under siege. Hades has to find a way to keep everyone and especially Persephone safe. He’s ready to go in extreme lengths and form unpleasant alliances to make it happen. The book is all about them fending off enemies and trying to stay together. It was really good seeing Persephone evolving to her true self. She’s a Queen, Hades’ Queen, and she’s ready to rise to her rightful place. The only person she’ll kneel to is Hades!

They will go through many things before they can be together. Their relationship is full of twists and turns, that kept me guessing how they’d end up. I liked how we got glimpses to Hades’ past; it helped me understand more. All the secrets he’s been keeping are surfacing and Persephone is finally getting the answers she wanted all along!

If you are looking for a Hades and Persephone myth retelling, then this trilogy is definitely for you! Their story is sexy, unconventional, and guaranteed to leave you asking for more!!
