Life is hell for Persephone. Zeus will stop at nothing to gain access to the living realm and the Underworld, and as the only living god with a right to both, Persephone’s in trouble. Captured and tortured beyond the limits of her resolve, Persephone must find the power to stand against Zeus. But will she be strong enough?
Meanwhile, Hades contemplates desperate measures to rescue his queen. Persephone never thought of herself as dangerous, but there’s a reason gods never marry for love. A being with the power to destroy all of creation shouldn’t place more value in one individual than the rest of the planet. But Hades...Hades would break the world for her.
To save the world and stop both Hades and Zeus, Persephone must make a difficult choice. One that may cost her everything.
This series started we can say typically. We had a girl who didn't know who she was and the main problem in her life at the time was high school. But then things started to change and soon enough she discovered her real nature. Later with the Daughters of Earth and Sky and now The Iron Queen I can say that I grew up together with her. I've seen her transform form shy girl into a real goddess and at moments being stronger than Hades. We all know who he is so you get the idea. I loved every-single-aspect of their relationship and only thing I'd love is to see more of them together. They were more or less separated throughout this book but still I could see how they felt and how much they cared. Persephone didn't only grow emotionally but also as a goddess. She showed especially in this book how strong she really is. Not dropping on her knees in front of Zeus and many would do just that. Only thing that bothered me here is Aphrodite or better said her POVs. I know that they were necessary but somehow I couldn't connect with her.
During this series I've also met many other goddess. Mostly they're shown like a normal people until you piss them off. Then you can see the real power - especially with Hades. So I must say that this is a great book if you'd want to learn more about mythology but in YA way. Meaning not just myths but also see them as people first then as goddess. For me it was a pleasure to read this series.
Rating: 4 stars.
Until the next time,
