Dec 10, holly quigley rated it did not like it Shelves: Behaviour when he’s with others and when he’s alone, character, and Ripped out of the underworld by Zeus, Persephone must find a pomegranate to return to the realm of the dead and to her beloved.

It’s such great stuff. The compassion to his rage.

Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1)

To begin, fire your editor. The book ends in the middle of a scene. Not a man but a god, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants.

Quite a lot of it made no sense to me. There needs to be some major character development, plot development, and world building done to this before it can be considered even a good story. It’s like your there expierienceing and feeling everything the charachters do and feel. But not only that, you’re stuck with your mother, answering to her, relying on her to cuddle and shelter you from the real world. The correct word to use would be Gods.

Not a man but a god, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. The Demigod disappeared through the opening and seconds later a tall, lean muscled man with ash-blonde hair strolled toward Zeus. He did not want to give it up.

But then, something unexpected happens. Everything she writes is gold! Maura rated it did not like it Sep 18, Unfortunately, it didn’t really work for me.

Kamran rated it it was ok Jan 09, Will Hades get his love back? But with Zeus and Demeter protecting Persephone, Hades has his work cut out for him. It’s based on one of my favorit stories from Greek mythology: She was not that bad. Dec 29, Emily Ever rated it did not like hamnond Shelves: Thanks for the comment on my page. Any semblance of a story was completely drowned out by the over abundance of metaphors and similes.

However, the last two books I’ve read are about the asphodfl and I’m really enjoying these new characters.

Which really a shame, because I loved the idea of it. Not in the beggining, but after half of the book i really liked book and story. Kambria Helm rated it liked it May 10, There really wasn’t even a point in having Persephone go to school. The Persephone-Hades line does make me curious. She aspires to be a positive role model for young people who have a pencil, a piece of paper, and a dream. The author uses words incorrectly and in the w Synopsis Hades is lonely and bored ruling the underworld.


Come to think of it, none of the characters had substance. Zeus has promised him a wife, but has refused to actually give her to him. Jan 27, C.

Donna Yates January 6, at 8: Persephone is thousands of years old but has the maturity of a seven year old. One every other sentence sometimes every sentence does lauern.

YAY another Lauren Hammond book! I looked into the author, Lauren Hammond, and it appears that she has written several books.

Hammond for writing the real Zeus and Hades that always make people misunderstood which instantly made two stars. Persephone’s Mother Demeter treats her as though she’s about four years old – she tries to protect her and shield her from Hades who was promised by Zeus Persephone’s Father that she would be his wife.

I looked into the author, Lauren Hammond, and it appears that she has written several books. It’s been on my TBR pile for a while now, so I was super excited when I finally got my hands on a copy.
