ReviewI apologize for the very short synopsis, but I wasn t able to make itthan 50 pages in to the novel. I 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 w SynopsisHades is lonely and bored ruling the underworld Zeus has promised him a wife, but has refused to actually give her to him.

No current Talk conversations about this book. But noooo! Seriously, Persephone? Maybe Demeter should be the one to blame since she took Persephone away from the home of the gods, but hey, how ignorant can you get to know little to nothing about your own ancestry? Hades was surprising, though. Talk about unpredictable. I don't know why but I have a thing for Hades and Persephone re-tales of the story.
It always intrigues me to no end. So when I picked up this book I knew I love it. And with the unique twist on the story, I fell in love with it. Besides the fact that it is a modern day re-tale of Hades and Persephone I really like the pursuit of it.
I like that Hades chased Persephone and that she was unaware. The plot of the book is action filled and keeps you at the edge of your seat.
I liked the development of Persephone feelings and the way she acted. To see her change and get to know Hades is wonderful. Obviously we all know the love interest, but what also caught my eye is the attraction to Adonis. I love that Persephone seems certain but uncertain at the same time. It's creates for much more drama to come.
Overall, I loved it! Asphodel captures every bit of your imagination. Lots of running, righting, and emotions flowing off the pages. Asphodel is the start of trilogy that I know I will come quickly addicted to! Bookswithbite Mar 15, What a wonderful story. A truly unique retelling of the Persephone myth.
It takes place in the 21st century! Demeter has been running all over the Earth with an unsuspecting Persephone for thousands of years. Yes, thousands of years. Persephone is perpetually 17 years old.
Every 17 years, Hades has a 24 hour opportunity to bring her to the Underworld. I loved the way the author was able to tell a story in the present time. It made the characters far more interesting. This has always been one of my favorite stories of the Greek myths, and this unique retelling is just amazing.
I cannot wait for book number two. As you can guess, we were left hanging at the end of this book. I've felt Hades was the most misunderstood God of the ancient pantheon. He was my favorite of the male Gods.
Will Hades get his love back? Stay tuned for book number two! You must log in to edit Common Knowledge data. References to this work on external resources. Wikipedia in English None.
