Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1) by Lauren Hammond (2 star ratings)
The Persephone-Hades line does make me curious. I know Demeter wanted them to blend in, but Persephone looks like she is seventeen. Jul 26, Jagged rated it did not like it Shelves: Newer Post Older Post Home. Persephone is perpetually 17 years old. It is a short book, if you like this retold myhologic stories about greek mythology, i recommend it but dont keep your expectations up.

She was wiser than that and for goodness sake, she swore to stay single forever like Artemis! Kelly Hashway January 7, at 2: Not a man but a god, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. But then, something unexpected happens. Every 17 years, Hades has a 24 hour opportunity to bring her to the Underworld. Jun 08, Vilmarys rated it it was ok. I had pretty high hopes for this book after reading the description. I have mixed feelings with it and let me start off with the good ones.
It was a useless thing in this book. So when I picked up this book I knew I love it. Unless her brain ceased developing somewhere over the course of the last five thousand years, there is no way Persephone, a goddess, would be talking and acting like a four year old child.
I very much liked the “take” on this by Roberta Gellis, where it is also a love match between Hades and Persephone. Hades examined him, hoping to scorch him with his gaze.

Now that the mom’s been mentioned, on to her. Like her going school and not acting like what was expected of her.
Ain rated it it was ok Jan 01, The absolute clincher for me and what pushed it from a hammon star to a 1 star rating is the ending. See all 3 questions about Asphodel…. I think her just lauuren girl, she doesnt have power other than immortality and bloom some flower, so it was easy but after she falls to underworld, i started to think her as Perse, not that she acted like a goddess, mostly a toddler who could not get a toy she wanted.
Plus, I didn’t like the fact that the book switched from 3rd to 1st laugen. Despite being a lover of YA novels and mythical stories, I would not reccomend this book to anyone. There are three POV characters Hades, Persephone, and Demeter–though Demeter really didn’t need one and for some reason, Persephone got 1st person and the others got 3rd person.
