Summary

Persephone's relationship with Hades has gone public, and the resulting media storm disrupts her normal life and threatens to expose her as the Goddess of Spring.

Hades, God of the Dead, is burdened by a hellish past that everyone's eager to expose in an effort to warn Persephone away.

Things only get worse when a horrible tragedy leaves Persephone's heart in ruin and Hades refusing to help. Desperate, she takes matters into her own hands, striking bargains with severe consequences.

Faced with a side of Hades she never knew and crushing loss, Persephone wonders if she can truly become Hades' queen.

Contains mature themes.

Meh, I totally agree with some of the other review

I really loved the first book, so wasn't really put off by the poor reviews. I didn't feel as strongly as some, and think its good enough to past time on a commute, but the plot was a bit disappointing. Persephone does seem to go running to Hecate every other chapter, and she is a little intolerable (but not enough to make me stop listening). One of the main plot lines took me by surprise. It just felt so random and I feel it will ruin the third book...if you listen you will get what I'm talking about. One thing I did love was Hermes, his character is fantastic and really shines in this book. One bug bear, and I don't know where the blame lies, but the driver Anthony changes between a cyclops and ogre in every other chapter. Its just annoying that this detail wasn't picked up. There were a few other little mistakes as well. Overall I liked it enough that I will look forward to the final book.

Sooooo good!

This book is amazing! The world that she has written is beautiful and well rounded. Does it have its flaws yes. But it is nothing in the world that is going on. I love this story so much and can’t wait to get my hands onto the next book.

Good read, even better narrator

The narrator is what made these books so good. She read with such passion. Pretty good series, excited for the third book to come out

Great Series! Can't wait for the next one!!

St. Clair's books are fun to listen to. Espically with Meg Sylvan reading! The story is very good and I love the romance and passion that St. Clair puts into the characters. I actually cried a little at points. love it!

okay

the goodness of spring was too childish in this book, her attitude was aggravating most of the book but did get better towards the end. the couple never saw eye to eye on anything. I enjoyed the book though. if you read the first one, I would definitely read this one as well. curious to see what the third book will bring.

Storyline

The main character was whiny. She killed the story for me. I am just very disappointed in this follow up in this series. I had such high hope because of how we ending the first book. I thought she was already empowerment. She made so many selfish and stupid choices because she is scared of something she doesn't understand and doesn't take time to understand. Her actor completely changed.
