Audio Book Summary

Persephone is the Goddess of Spring by title only. The truth is, since she was a little girl, flowers have shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hopes to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist.

Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible.

After a chance encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead and the terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever.

The bet does more than expose Persephone's failure as a goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead grows-and it's forbidden.

Contains mature themes.

    Love the series. Definitely not a huge fan of “hades voice”, but otherwise I really enjoyed all of the books.

    A wonderful new spin on an old Greek myth, very well written, great character set up, beautiful language, very tasteful sex scenes! The narration by Meg Sylvan is „honey for your ears“, her voice is the perfect match for this book. I will add Scarlett to my favourite authors in this genre. 5 stars from me.

    Pretty much a variety of “50 shades” with Greek mythological characters. I’m made it to the end but wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re really into that kind of plot with so-so writing.

    Good story line, fun banter. I’m over books that are flat and one dimensional. This one kept me hooked. I was glad that there was more to the main character than just someone who needed a man in her life to complete her.

    If there was a way to give a negative star rating , I would have used it here , total and complete rubbish , it was a free choice or I’d be livid if I actually paid for this rubbish , have tried multiple time to listen but it’s too nauciatimg , in fact I don’t think there are words in the English language to describe the total utter rubbish , so I’ll use a Hellenic phrase , this is total malakia .

    I absolutely loved this story! The modern twist to an age old tale was delightful to listen to. The narrator does a great job at bringing the characters to life. If you enjoy Greek mythology and romance this is definitely the story for you! I look forward to listening to more of Hade's & Persephone's story.
