Publisher's Summary

Become enchanted by the fantasy world of gods and mortals in bestselling author Scarlett St. Clair's reimagined New Greece. Listeners are "hopelessly addicted" to the story of Hades and Persephone told from Hades's point of view.

Hades, God of the Dead, does not take sides or bend the rules. He makes no exceptions to these values—not for god or mortal, even his lover, Persephone, Goddess of Spring.

Usually, fear prevents retaliation.

But not this time.

When Hera, Goddess of Women, approaches Hades with a plan to overthrow Zeus, he declines to offer help. As punishment, Hera sentences Hades to perform a series of labors. Each feat seems more impossible than the last and draws his attention away from Persephone—whose own tragedy has left her questioning whether she can be Queen of the Underworld.

Can Hades maintain the balance he craves?

Contains mature themes.

Plot and spice!!

I will forever be in awe of Scarlett St. Clair’s writing! The love between Persephone and Hades is everything. There were times my heart broke for them, and times I wanted shout with joy. This story had me captivated the entire time. Worth every second!

Great!

This was perhaps the BEST retelling of a good series from the romantic partner's POV EVER. It wasn't a repeat of the story from the male's POV. It was an ENTIRE different story with a FEW familiar scenes from Hades' POV. FANTASTIC.

The absolute worst narrator 🫠

After suffering through A Game of Fate narrated by the same voice actor I’m not even half way through chapter 3 and this is getting painful. After all the complaints with the first book from Hades POV I cannot believe this guy got a second chance. The cherry on top is the fact his pronunciation is vastly different from the voice actor that narrated Persephone.. They could literally not have picked a worse Hades.

Great Listen

Love Tyler Donne's narration.
I really enjoy getting to hear things from Hades perspective.
The only thing that could make it better would be to have it dual narrated.

Absolutely Amazing❤

I am so in love with this book!! I really enjoyed all the pieces of myths that played a part in hades story. I am continually amazed at all the activity going on between both stories and how they work together so well. I can not wait to read A Game of Gods and A Touch of Chaos when they come out to see where Scarlett takes this amazing story next!!!❤️

Fun to see what Hades has been up to.

This is the book to listen to after A Touch of Ruin to find out what Hades has been up to whenever he disappears. Overall I enjoyed the story arc, and I get that sex is a big part of this series, but sometimes it seemed a little repetitive.

Daddy Death

I love Hades POV, I had so many questions about where Hades was or how he was feeling. This book answers them all and I love that it really is a different story compared to ATOR. I can wait for Daddy Deaths POV for the next book…I like need it now!

Steamy!

As per the other books, I prefer the originals (from Persephone's point of view) but still a good read/listen!!
