Asphodel The Underworld Trilogy #1

Persephone has been running for her entire life Running from the humans to keep her immortality a secret And running from a man who haunts her dreams Not a man but a god who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants And what he wants most is herTrapped in the realm of the dead Persephone plans to return to the land of the living The underworld is a terrifying place where ghosts roam freely three headed dogs patrol the gates and it 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 was it What is that supposed to tell me That she s forever being re incarnated That her mother Demeter just keeps on jumping Zeus s bones to have her That although she herself constantly makes statements like Luckily for me I ve lived for a long time as in she s amassed a bit of knowledge over the centuries years she still thinks and acts like a clueless petulant child which is another thing as a child does she retain all this We just don t know I swear this book did not even try to make senseNow you might be saying Shauna you are over thinking it go with the flow There was no flowI gave up around page 100 a solid effort on my part at this charming exchange He takes me by surprise when he whips around clutches my arm and backs me up into the wall his cheeks flushed and red full of rage Are you a child he growlsFor the first time since I ve arrived here I fear him A startled gasp gets stuck in my throat I m captivated Lostrubs templesYou re something alright love

’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

    I wish there was a lower star rating than 1 This is a horrible book and I am really surprised how the author ever managed to get this published Either she was high when she was writing this or this was book written by her five year old Her metaphors made me cringe the entire time and I read the entire book hoping that it will get better I am not much of a grammar police so I won't bother commenting on her grammar but her writing style and

    Story was really weak in the beggining Persephone acts like a adolescent though she is five thousand years old goddess It really made me mad so immature But later she becomes better not that she loses all of her childness Hades was like how i
