Neon Gods (Dark Olympus) (Paperback)
I think my cheeks are still red from reading this book. Katee Robert did not hold back. This Persephone/Hades retelling is wonderful and unique. Perspehone is a golden girl socialite until the day it becomes clear that Zeus has his eye on her. Persephone flees to the lower city and unknowingly right into Hades's arms. What starts as a simple arrangement to keep her out of Zeus's clutches soon turns into love. Between the politics at play and the electric emotional connection this book had me on the edge of my seat.
Be warned that it is very steamy and riddled with sex scenes that will make your toes curl.— From Sam's Picks
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.
*A scorchingly hot modern retelling of Hades and Persephone that's as sinful as it is sweet.*
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...
