This is a retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth. But with a twist. In this book, Hades is a woman.
This was good (or average). I liked that it was different. But, I would have liked Hades to be a little bad-ass. I thought at times she was too perfect and maybe even a little doormat-ish.
Zeus was the evil asshole in this one. For all the times I was told, "Zeus gets what he wants,"I thought his comeuppance was rushed. For that matter, Persephone's new ability was out of left field.
When all said and done, this is a good, decent addition to all the varies retellings.
I read this for #RippedBodiceBingo for the Queer YA/NA square.
