Between 2.5 and 3 stars, this was a cute read, but didn't have too much depth or angst. Add to that, the heroine seemed super young...I don't remember how old she was supposed to be, but her reactions to things made her sound like shew as just entering her teen years, rather then coming close to leaving them behind (I think she was supposed to be 17-ish). Also there, IMO, was little to no chemistry between this Persephone and Hades. oh and a pet peeve popped up too, every time P and H and were having a convo where actual info could be exchanged...something interrupted them. i would've been okay with it once or twice but it happened enough times that it seriously annoyed me. Also the world building was just okay...like we got a little info, but not nearly enough to form a solid picture in your head. So yeah, altogether it was an okay read, but I'm not super excited about reading the next book.
