this book really bugged me. First was the misuse of the greek gods and godesses. Secondly all the stupid guys that are fighting over her, and the clear theme of finding the right guy. And thirdly, the annoying characters.

This book is one of my favorite retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth. Some parts of the book though is slow but towards the end it makes up.

This book starts out slow, but is really good once it gets going. I would highly recommend for any Greek mythology lovers, specifically fans of the Hades/Persephone myth.
