I LOVE mythology, and I thought, that overall, this series was a pretty good addition to the story of Hades and Persephone.
However,that thing with the Tests...again! To me this still makes no sense (see book #1 review). I mean, I did like the book, it's just that these couple of things bothered me a bit.
And even though I liked the book, it actually took me a while to finish it because it got so incredibly depressing at one point that I just decided to put it down for a bit... It was just more sadness than I could handle :(
One thing (or person, I should say...no, god!) I loved without a doubt was Hades...err, Henry! He is just the sweetest thing ever and I absolutely adore him! I really liked Kate, too. Even though she can be stubborn at times, she is also very caring, loyal, and a very smart girl! And then there's Hera... She is such a frustrating character! But I'm pretty sure that's the whole point ;)
Overall, I really enjoyed the book with all its suspense and romance. I expected a bit more fighting action, but it was pretty okay nonetheless.
If you have not read the ending to this series yet, be prepared for many surprises, lots of crying (on your behalf), and a good dose of Henry-Kate romance!
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
