Good morning everyone , it is release day for Felicity Heaton's new prequel to the Guardians of Hades series. QUEEN OF THE UNDERWORLD.
Hades, the wickedly dark god-king of the Underworld, needs a queen.
And he’s chosen Persephone.
All Persephone has ever desired is control of her own life, and someone noticing her once in a while. Kept in her mother’s shadow, and overlooked by the entirety of Olympus, her dream seems impossible… and now she’s doomed to wed a dull god of her mother’s choosing…
Until she crosses paths with a handsome, dark warrior who rouses wildfire heat in her veins—a male whose immense power is unmistakable, and who matches the fearful tales whispered in Olympus—stories of a cruel, heartless king who rules his realm of death with an iron fist.
When Hades abducts her and imprisons her in the depths of the Underworld, a dormant part of her awakens. And as she slowly discovers the truth about him, Persephone isn’t sure whether the snarling, dark beast of a king is her doom… or her saviour… but she knows one thing…
She will embrace the fire he awakens in her with every heated glance, and every vicious growl.
And use it to tame him and forge her dreams into reality.
When Hades, the God of the Underworld is out trying to calm his raging heart. He comes a cross a paradise and a woman who stills his black heart. A sweet goddess who just wants a life of her own and a man who will love only her. When Persephone, a sweet goddess who just wants a life of her own and to be out of her mother's shadow and not to marry the god her mother picked out for her. She meets Hades and her life changes as he abducts her and hides her in the Underworld. Where she fights and figures out that Hades is more then the devil that they make him out to be. Will the love they are forming be able to keep them together or will the darkness and a mother's manipulation keep them apart.
Hades and Persephone have always been characters that I feel have been underrated in story telling. Hades is a dark man who only knows the depths of hell but underneath that there is a man that is looking for love that he can have as his own. He is sexy and when he can he can be sweet and kind, Persephone is lightness and she is sweet and kind but there is a dark side to her that is just waiting to be woken up. They go together they are the both sides of the same coin. They bring out the best in each other and Hades will burn down the world for her.
This is a really good retelling of Hades and Persephone story. The author takes them on with a great twist as an enemies to lovers romance. The characters are well written and complex and we really get to see the characters behind the iconic god and goddess. The author takes us on such a ride there is so much emotion that come from the two main characters. You will love them and there are moments you will want to slap Hades or hug both of them. If you want a book where there is no real hero but a villain that will burn down the world to save his love. This is the book for you, check it out .
