    I am only half way through this book but I can't take it any I love Greek myth stories and I love YA novels but when the book is missing crucial wordspunctuationcharacter traits it eats at my enjoyment I don't think this book has ever even heard the word 'editor'On top of that the heroine is though immortal acting like a child She has supposedly lived for centuries and yet she still cries at the drop of a hat; still flustered by a cute boy

    The mythology in this was just god awful that was bad wasn't it? moving on One of the things that kept niggling at me was the character life cycles It was mentioned a number of times that Persephone had had many 17th birthdays the implication seemingly that her age never stretched any further than that but that

    Well it was a great idea executed in a very poor way It was a complete struggle to read and nearly impossible to enjoy Persephone is thousands of years old but has the maturity of a seven year old She is whinny irritating dull and honestly uite dumb she can't figure out things that are blatantly obvious I didn't like her and could not relate to her She goes to high school and likes a boy at her high school I'm in my 20s and could never d

    Asphodel noun any of various Old World herbs especially genera Asphodelus and Asphodeline of the lily family with flowers in usually long erect racemes This book is a light read and I’m pretty sure adolescents like me would also enjoy this I have mixed feelings with it and let me start off with the good ones What I Like Ms Lauren really researched and knows a lot about Greek myths I’d like to congratulate her for wri

Summary ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Lauren Hammond

Fruit of the dead would bind Persephone to spend her life beneath the earth’s core with Hades But Zeus has reduced every pomegranate tree in the world to ash Except one Persephone must locate that one remaining pomegranate tree a uest that could ignite a war between the two mightiest of the god’s A war that could cause Persephone to lose the only family she’s ever known or give up a love that comes only once every five thousand yea. This is like 25 stars than 3I really really wanted to like this book I love Hades and Persephone I love retellings and I love ya novels so it should have been a perfect fit for me Unfortunately it didn t really work for meFirst off it should have been looked over once or twice by an editor Some of the mistakes may have just been because of the format there were a couple of times were parts of sentences were repeated and I know that ereaders sometimes do wonky things to the formatting but others were easily fixable grammatical errors such as lie v lay The romance felt off to me Persephone fell in love with Hades after two days Previous to this she had hated him for kidnapping her but once she realized that he actually felt something for her beyond just seeing her as a prize she immediately fell in love with him I don t find that particularly believable and would have really liked some development of their romancePersephone didn t really sound like a 5000 year old goddess She sounded like a modern day teenager Also it seemed kind of pointless for her to be going to high school I know Demeter wanted them to blend in but Persephone looks like she is seventeen It probably wouldn t have seemed too weird if she wasn t going to high school and if someone asked about it either say that she was older than she looks or home schooled because honestly not having her go to school would probably have made their hiding easierI didn t really like how Hades was portrayed I always interpreted him as preferring to stay away from Mount Olympus and the other gods and he never really seemed that bitter over getting the Underworld He actually seemed like one of the better gods to me even with his kidnapping of Persephone Here he seems really bitter and spiteful about being in charge of the Underworld and just seems to hate everything He didn t really work for me Part of this may be because of different ways of looking at Hades if I pretend that he is an original character I can deal with his characterization betterA little thing that annoyed me Persephone bit into the pomegranate Everyone I ve ever known has always just eaten the seeds in fact I don t think you actually can bite into the skin of the pomegranate because it s pretty thickI did enjoy this book to some extent though It was a uick read and I read it all in one sitting and it had a uniue retaking on the myth of Hades and Persephone I probably will pick up the next book because I think that one will be action orientated than this one was and I m interested in seeing the direction this retelling takes

’s a living grave where the rules of earth and the warmth of the sun no longer apply But then something unexpected happens Persephone finds herself falling for the god who abducted her the god who has chased her for five thousand years a god who is none other than death himself HadesRipped out of the underworld by Zeus Persephone must find a pomegranate to return to the realm of the dead and to her beloved Consuming only a seed of the. SynopsisHades is lonely and bored ruling the underworld Zeus has promised him a wife but has refused to actually give her to himReviewI apologize for the very short synopsis but I wasn t able to make it than 50 pages in to the novelI was drawn to Aspodel by the cover and the premise of the story I love retold or modernized myths and this one looked interesting Unfortunately the writing was so poor that I gave up searching for the plot The author uses words incorrectly and in the wrong tense constantly and her use of really bad metaphors was irritating Below are a few passagesA man lied in the middle of the street His limbs were twisted and broken and blood oozed from every opening on the man s faceThrough the centuries the tasks of running his realm had become tedious and repetitive to Hades The task of damning the souls that had crossed the river Styx into his domain was becoming tiresome for the deceitful kingHades glared at the boy pre adult boy whose hazel eyes glistened with tears Seconds later Hades disappeared reappearing in front of the boy Fear crept up the mortal s spine and he stiffened unable to move Then he started shaking Hades examined him hoping to scorch him with his gaze Rage bubbled inside of the might God and Hades boomed Aren t you a man The boy lowered his head and Hades blanched as he sniffed But the boy did not answerMy Recommendation While I saw promise in the book before I opened I was very disappointed in the writing The novel feels like it was written by a a very young new writer I looked into the author Lauren Hammond and it appears that she has written several books I m not sure if the rest of her body of work follows this example but I will not search out of her books to check I give it 15 Not worth the effort
