Persephone is sort of a prisoner in her own life because while she tries to blend in with humans, she can’t form any real connections with them. I loved the way Ms. She has supposedly lived for centuries and yet she still cries at the drop of a hat; still flustered by a cute boy; still doesn’t question why her mother won’t answer some basic questions. I disliked how she was portrayed in this book.
I know its a YA novel but I feel like she would be more self-possessed by now. Trapped in the realm of the dead, Persephone plans to return to the land of the living. This was incredibly disappointing. That’s exactly what I said hammonr I found out about this book. Persephone is obnoxiously immature for being years old.

Beverly Diehl January 6, at 3: I swear I am Lauren Hammond’s 1 fan! With also more YA cliches. Overall, I loved it! And with the unique twist on the story, I fell in love with it. I’d found you through blog hop on Thurs, but I guess I forgot to leave my comment, oops. Come to think of it, none of the characters had substance.
Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1)
I tried to like it, I love Persephone and Hades and mythology retellings. It was a complete struggle to read and nearly impossible to enjoy.
The love story is unbelievable and completely unlikable. You knew I would eventually. Asphodel is the start of trilogy that I know I will come quickly addicted to!
On their whole hiding thing: It always intrigues me to no end. Not that I believe she would even know what that means. Catherine, yes mythology is a hot topic right now. As you can guess, we were asphodep hanging at the end of this book.
Take a look how Athena appeared in the book: Little did I know that my excitement would be short lived. Want to Read saving….
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 thick.
So when I found this book i was both a happy and a bit worried. I wasn’t really interested in anything, apart from some parts during Persephone’s time in the Underworld, and the ending, the very ending.
I thought the premise was interesting, but that’s about it. The Underworld Trilogy 1.
