SUMMARY
Catch me, Darkness. Again and again.

The life of a virgin goddess might suit Artemis or Athena, but Persephone, daughter of Zeus, wants no part of it. While the rest of the immortals cavort, she grows restless in the shadow of Olympos.

Rules, rules. Always the rules. Her mother's edict forbids her the company of any male god. She can't speak to them, can't look at them. Can't even attend the Olympian feasts. As far as Demeter knows, her daughter remains a maiden.

But Persephone leads a double life. She finds her affection elsewhere, and in plentiful supply. If only the sons of Man made her happy. If only she could put a name to this need she feels. It grows by the day, dark and unfulfilled. An eternity of enforced loneliness looms, and Persephone contemplates a drastic choice to escape it.

Only one thing stands in her way.

Hades.

Where earthquakes rend hill and vale asunder, and the abyss yawns to devour falling screams, the black halls of the Underworld await. The Lord of the Dead follows only one set of rules: his own.

And he expects Persephone to obey. Eris Adderly draws you into a spectacular world of dark mythology, where legends bloom with sensual new life and the stories you thought you knew turn out to be just the beginning.

This scorching hot romance takes the reader on a journey of discovery and submission, including graphic descriptions of sexual acts, and is intended for mature readers only.

This book is one of those books that goes way outside my wheelhouse. Okay, there's some pretty hot kinky sex with a bad boy and a sassy, outspoken heroine, so maybe not so far outside my wheelhouse. However, the bad boy in question is the baddest of all bad boys, Hades. And the sassy heroine, Persephone.

Eris Adderly has retold the Greek mythological tale of Hades and Persephone. Though I found it a bit on the formal side for my tastes, I did enjoy her interpretation of the story.

Though we all know how this ends, I have to say I totally enjoyed the portrayal of the gods such as Aphrodite and Zeus. Though I'm not usually a fan of this genre, I would definitely read more of this series!
