Blurb (from Goodreads):
He was supposed to be a myth.
But from the moment I crossed the River Styx and fell under his dark spell…
…he was, quite simply, mine.
Society darling Persephone Dimitriou plans to flee the ultra-modern city of Olympus and start over far from the backstabbing politics of the Thirteen Houses. But all that’s ripped away when her mother ambushes her with an engagement to Zeus, the dangerous power behind their glittering city’s dark facade.
With no options left, Persephone flees to the forbidden undercity and makes a devil’s bargain with a man she once believed a myth…a man who awakens her to a world she never knew existed.
Hades has spent his life in the shadows, and he has no intention of stepping into the light. But when he finds that Persephone can offer a little slice of the revenge he’s spent years craving, it’s all the excuse he needs to help her—for a price. Yet every breathless night spent tangled together has given Hades a taste for Persephone, and he’ll go to war with Olympus itself to keep her close…
A modern retelling of Hades and Persephone that’s as sinful as it is sweet.
If there’s one author I trust to write a good Hades and Persephone retelling, that is Katee Robert. I first heard of this project around winter 2020 and I’ve been excited for it ever since. Then surprise surprise, but the book was put up by Sourcebooks Casablanca on Spotify. So you know… summer made! I also have to say that I read this book during what I like to call my Katee Robert month, because it was mostly made up of reads from her backlist. Anyway. I am very happy to say that Neon Gods lived up to my expectations.
