Neon Gods: A Scorchingly Hot Modern Retelling of Hades and Persephone (Dark Olympus, 1)
Neon Gods by Katee Robert is an imaginative retelling of a classic love story. Hades is a god on a mission. He wants revenge against the one who killed his father, the Hades before him. The task is nearly impossible due to the treaties between the upper and lower cities. However, just when all hope seems lost, the solution comes sprinting over a bridge toward him one evening, barefoot and panicked. Persephone, the daughter of the politically power-hungry Demeter, is desperate to leave her high-society life within the towering “upper” city of Olympus at any cost. Unfortunately, her mother has different plans, hoping to climb the ladder further by offering her daughter up as a sacrificial lamb and wife to Zeus, philanderer and rumored murderer. Persephone does the only thing she can. She runs.
The Persephone in this book is clever and daring, while Hades is rough around the edges and sticky sweet on the inside. The story is told from dual first-person perspectives, allowing the reader to become fully immersed in the modern Olympian tale. Overall, the book is charming, fun, and sinfully erotic.
