Persephone makes Bella Swan look like an incredibly smart, strong, capable woman – no I attempted to read this There is no smooth transition. Like 8 year old childish. Persephone makes Bella Swan look like an incredibly smart, strong, capable woman – now that’s saying something!


Besides the fact that it is a modern day re-tale of Hades and Persephone I really like the pursuit of it. I’m in my 20s and could never do this if I were 17 again let alone if I were thousands of years old. I just can’t get past this. Kamelia rated it it was ok Apr 06, Judging at the plot summary, I thought the whole plot will revolve around Persephone finding the last Pomegranate tree to be with her beloved Hades.

Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1)

You know, where Hades is. Asphodek wanted to gouge my eyes out while I was reading this. But Zeus has reduced every pomegranate tree in the world to ash.

It is a short book, if you like this retold myhologic stories about greek mythology, i recommend it but dont keep your expectations up. I like that Hades chased Persephone and that she was unaware. And when hammondd is some original thought, it doesn’t connect with what’s going on and you have to pause and go ‘ I didn’t really like how Hades was portrayed.


Unfortunately, it didn’t really work for me.

Trapped in the realm of the dead, Persephone plans to return to the land of the living. I love mythology and am very familiar with this story.

I can’t put my finger on what, but it didn’t work for me. That she’s forever being re-incarnated? Thanks for telling us about the problem. Instantly she can see her mom and where asphoel is.

Long story short I felt like a teenager wrote it.

I probably would have been hammnd okay with it if this book took place in ancient times. It doesn’t have to stand on its own, but it needs to have an ending and not just a pause as we wait for the next story. Nov 19, Amanda rated it did not like it. I cannot wait for book number two. Stay tuned for book number two!
