About this ebook

This book was phenomenal! Absolutely phenomenal! I love ruthless, heartless, sexy alpha male Hades. –Madeleine, Goodreads reviewer

The first rule my mother taught me: never leave the farm.

Because the world is a dangerous place, and the most dangerous man in it will hurt me.

But I couldn’t stay forever, trapped and isolated.

I made the choice to leave. I crept out under the cover of darkness. I broke the rules.

And Hades was waiting for me, just like my mother said he would be.

He caught me in his arms and claimed me for his own.

He can keep me forever, but I’m going to take something, too:

His heart.

Hades & Persephone is the complete Hades trilogy in one volume, with exclusive content not found anywhere else!

OMGosh!! This was such a great read. I love when Amelia writes dark romance. This is a retelling and updated version of Persephone and Hades. I was hooked into this story once I started and couldn’t put it down until I was finished. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I highly recommend getting this complete trilogy. Amelia did such a superb job with the King of Shadows series. King of Shadows- Persephone has only known what her mother, Demeter tells her. She has been so sheltered and has been told to never trust Hades, and if she sees him, to run. Hades lives in his mansion that is built onto the mountain. He makes deals with people all the time and these people owe him in one way or another. When Persephone trades her life for Decker, Hades sees a plan form in his mind and accepts it. What happens between them turns into more than a deal they made. These two realize that they need each other and instead of running away from Hades, Persephone wants to run to him. Will these two be able to have what they want or will it be torn apart? I love the start Hades and Persephone’s story. This is dark, suspenseful and a little twisted with an alpha that will do whatever it takes to keep the object he is starting to care for with him forever. Summer Queen- Hades is a man on a mission. He wants Persephone back and is willing to break rules to do it. Persephone wants to know the truth and know more about Hades. She will get some truths, but at a price. Nothing is free, especially when it comes to Hades. This is a dark and intense read. Truths will leave you going wth. 😳 Persephone and Hades have this undeniable connection, and amazingly scorching hot chemistry. As amazing as it is, it is also confusing to them both. Their feelings for each other is intense and they both feed off each other. Hades needs Persephone and Persephone needs Haded. They complete each other, and Persephone is proving she is the Queen for her King. Together they will not back down from anything. I can’t wait for their conclusion. This story/series has been my favorite so far. It is dark and filled with action, suspense and twists and turns. Midnight Kingdom- We have watched these two fall in love with each other, but they will have to fight all the forces coming at them to win. This is filled with drama, suspense, intense moments (physical and emotional), and twists and turns. Hades may be a grade A a******, but Persephone loves that about him. These two are so hot and steamy with some dark deliciousness. This was a sinfully dark and wonderfully updated version of Hade and Persephone’s story.

I flove this world!! And this lets you binge Hades!! I adore Hades! Compiling the King of Shadows trilogy, but also including new material and the epilogues! I love Hades & Persephone!! Dark, stormy, a little twisty, and definitely suspenseful. I love this series that brings us into the world of Hades, Demeter, Zeus, and Poseidon. You want to sink into this dark, twisty world!! I love the additions that Amelia added to make it more cohesive with the rest of this world. Binge the whole Hades & Persephone saga in one sitting!!! Book One: Modern take on Hades and Persephone with all the heat...and dark... I have always been fascinated by the Hades & Persephone mythology. (So much so, that my bestie and I named a kitten we rescued Persephone due to a shared custody situation.) Persephone has been sheltered by her mother her entire life. She has reached the point where she wants to escape. To experience things. Her fascination with the New York Public Library...I love it. She has been taught that Hades is dangerous. That he will be her end. So when she finds herself throwing herself at his mercy to save the boy she was meeting, she has no idea what she's in for. Hades (Luther) rules his world with an strict hand. Everyone has given themselves over to him in exchange for something. Little does he expect Demeter's daughter to end up in that position. He is fascinated by the innocent Persephone. He finds himself thinking of her more than he ever has for anyone. They are both drawn to each other. He senses her darkness. She finds herself wanting him to do those dark things to her. Definitely a fantastic modern take on the myth...and a much more adult take on it as well. Dark, dark, dark. Love the dark. This is only the beginning. Ends on a cliffie. Introduction to the rest of Hades dysfunctional family. Book 2 Persephone is so much more than expected... We open on a flashback to a rebellious moment that foreshadows Persephone's future. And a reference to the Fates. Foreward to the present, Hades is dealing with the aftermath of Persephone's kidnapping. He knows it was Zeus. The order of things is about to come tumbling down... Meanwhile Persephone discovers her captor and Hades AND her mother are all connected...closely... ...but she still wants her Hades. He definitely wouldn't be happy she's in a whorehouse. Lucky for her, he does something he rarely does... ...and so a chain of events is triggered... In the meantime, we learn more about Hades, why he prefers the dark, and the way things are supposed to be. Persephone goes from a sprouting bud to full bloom by the end...she is ready to lead her people to war. She and Hades are darkness and light. Loved it!! Strong Hades and Persephone go to war for love! The fantastic conclusion to this amazing retelling of their story. The war comes to the mountain. Zeus attacks. Poseidon makes an appearance. (Love this take on him! Please, please, please tell me we get a story for him too!) More backstory...Demeter is one cold mama. I love this story even more now that we've gotten to the conclusion. No big surprise this is one dysfunctional family, but Hades & Persephone are starting their own HEA. Persephone has given Hades a silver lining in his darkness. Hades has helped Persephone find her strength. You'll want to move onto Zeus and Poseidon's worlds next!! I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

This book was VERY good. EXTREMELY hot and spicy not at all made for people who are easily triggered by sexual assault. It made me laugh and cry several times and I really want more! I want to find out about their baby, and if Demeter ever tries to manipulate herself into the picture. This story was an all around 10/10 !
