Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1) by Lauren Hammond

The romance felt off to me. Review I apologize for the very short synopsis, but I wasn’t able to make it more than 50 pages in to the novel. I wanted them to be together and love each other. Kamelia rated it it was ok Apr 06, Also the fact that she despies Hades for about 2 days before she throws aspohdel in his arme.

Persephone makes Bella Swan look like an incredibly smart, strong, capable woman – now that’s saying something! It was poorly written and there were many mistakes. Hades was surprising, though. View all 5 comments. Overall, I lived her life and wished the best for her.

Story was really weak in the beggining, Persephone acts like a adolescent, though she is five thousand years old goddess. Will you take the sea too?

I did like that it was a retelling of a myth. In the end everything all falls apart.


He swore he saw Persephone dancing around in the whirling flames with a radiant smile on her face and the illusion made his heart ache. He was my favorite of the male Gods.

On their whole hiding thing: I asphoddl enjoyed it and could really relate. A truly unique retelling of the Persephone myth. The author’s writing was very weak. I loved this retelling because Demeter and Persephone hide among humans and live like common people instead of the godesses they are. Not a man but a god, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants.

The author’s writing was very weak. Most people are at least somewhat familiar with the story of Hades and Persephone, but Hammond puts a new spin on it. Interesting take on the myth! It takes place in the 21st century!

That’s exactly what I asphoddel when I found out about this book. Hm, if my dad promised me to the god of the underworld, I’d probably be pretty ticked off, and terrified! I did enjoy this book to some extent hammonx.

I like the idea of a new spin, as long as the story doesn’t deviate too far from the original. Mirka Breen January 6, at Trivia About Asphodel The Und I can’t put my finger on what, but it didn’t work for me. Aug 18, Scarlett rated it it was ok Shelves: But the boy asphdoel not answer. The Gods, if anything, never did anything small.


Story This book retells the myth of Persephone and Hades, and their challenging love. I’m still on the search Also her love with Hades felt a bit insta-loveish.

Yes, I think my relationship with my father would change depending on how Hades and I got along, too. I have mixed feelings with it and let me start off with the good ones. Nov 17, Julie Rimpula rated it did not like it Shelves: Ripped out of the underworld by Zeus, Persephone must find a pomegranate to return to the realm of the dead and to her beloved.

Especially in a situation where it doesn’t look like the rest of the series is going to be coming anytime soon. I very much liked the “take” on this by Roberta Gellis, where it is also a love match between Hades and Persephone.

Soo much ughhh, I can’t even make myself keep reviewing. Earn you a round trip ticket to another state? Everyone always thought that Hades was the cruellest of the gods just because of his job, but Zeus had kauren beat. Veronica Ika rated it it was ok Aug 27, Behaviour when he’s with others and when he’s alone, character, and Yes, thousands of years.
