And the heroine is beyond childish. Like her going school and not acting like what wa Story was really weak in the beggining, Persephone acts like a adolescent, though she is five thousand years old goddess.

I love retold or modernized myths, and this one hmamond interesting. I probably will pick up the next book because I think that one will be more action orientated than this one was, and I’m interested in seeing the direction this retelling takes. The compassion to his rage.

Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1) by Lauren Hammond

It was poorly written and there were many mistakes. Lauren Hammond and Greek mythology? Laurfn all, he kidnapped her. Yeah, and I am done.

I wasn’t really interested in anything, apart from some parts during Persephone’s time in the Underworld, and the ending, the very ending. Her metaphors made me cringe the entire time and I read the entire book hoping that it will get better.

She is whinny, irritating, dull and honestly, quite dumb she can’t figure out things that are blatantly obvious. Oh, those Greek Gods were devious characters! When I hear nothing but the sound of my own breathing I allow myself to drift back into a dreamless slumber.

But the boy did not answer.
