My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I mean, look at that pretty cover, read the awesome sounding concept (despite there existing in the market too many Hades and Persephone stories already) and then think to yourself in the first chapter that this book is different -it actually explores the mother daughter relationship that is such a huge part of the greek story. And then meet the hero.
Up till then we were fine. Fine. But after that the apparently strong and self sufficient heroine turns into a whimpering damsel in distress and the gods that are supposed to be scary and intimidating turn out to have the social structure of high school seniors. Literally.
I hate what this book did to my hopes for it.
SO. Yuck. And that’s all.
