I loved, loved, LOVED this book!!
It was a very fun and quick read about the Greek Underworld and its geography, and its residents and deities (including Hades, of course). It also talked about the Abduction of Persephone. In this myth, he is always viewed as the villain…but truthfully, he isn’t! He is really a nice guy! And Persephone sees that, eventually. I even added him to my favorite-Greek-gods list just recently :)
I liked the way the story was told, and I also really liked the pictures…I guess this is a graphic novel-type book. It’s very cool!
Another thing I was super happy about was the appearances of my two favorite Greek gods: Hecate and Apollo! I also really liked Hermes in this book, especially the exchange between him and Hecate…totally hilarious!
This is book 4 in the series, but I unfortunately have not read the 3 previous ones (they were about Zeus, Athena, and Hera). But I of course, intend to read them soon :)
This book is perfect for those who love Greek mythology, like I do, or those who just want to know about Hades, Persephone, and the Underworld.
