She was my only problem with the characters except for Persephone for the rest were fine. This book is not only riddled with inconsistences, it’s also written so poorly that at times I had to guess at what the sentence was actually supposed to be implying. I like that Hades lauuren Persephone and that she was unaware. I read two retellings in the past few weeks and I have another waiting for me on my Kindle. And running from a man who haunts her dreams. I know that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but honestly, you would never know how old she truly was if she didn’t mention it, which it was mentioned xsphodel.
I like the idea of a new spin, as long as the story doesn’t deviate too far from the original. 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.
Asphodel by Lauren Hammond – FictionDB
But with Zeus and Demeter protecting Persephone, Hades has his work cut out for him. I feel like someone has just plunged their fist into my chest and wrapped their fingers around my heart. Hades can only claim Persephone, who has been promised to him by Zeus, on her 17th birthday. It was a useless thing in this book.
Lauren and I both have the same imagination and interpretation in Greek myths, then do I have a future in writing books? She sounded like a modern day teenager. I’m just about to teach my college students a Aspphodel segment, focusing on Aristophanes comedies. Ok let me just say I was not into this book, I finished it though Everything she writes is gold! I just can’t get past this.
Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1)
Fear crept up the mortal’s spine and he stiffened, unable to move. Could y Oh wow You know, where Hades is.
However, why the heck would they have multiple seventeen birthdays? Long story short I felt like a teenager wrote it. If they were really hiding, she would be going by something other than Lauen, a name which also detracts from their “goal” which is to remain unnoticed.
That her mother Demeter just keeps on jumping Zeus’s bones to have her? And what he wants most, is her. That she’s forever being re-incarnated? And I do mean short. All that does is cloud the readers mind with a bunch of useless jargon that completely detaches us.
I think I might just finish the Asylum series and call it good. He was my favorite of the male Gods.
What is your favorite Greek myth? Dec 06, Louisa rated it did not like it.
But I was wrong. It doesn’t have to stand on its own, but it needs to have an ending and not just a pause as we wait for the next story. Is that Persephone in a field of Asphodels? Especially in a situation where it doesn’t look like the rest of the series is going to be coming anytime soon.
Then her image appeared.
Story ends in an important place, i am really curious about Adonis trouble, i was expecting that though. And what about aging? Which really a shame, because I loved the idea of it. Ripped out of the underworld by Zeus, Persephone must find a pomegranate hammonc return to the realm asphodell the dead and to her beloved. She doesn’t even go a whole three days with him after that before she actually says the word. View all 4 comments.

Lauren Hammond knew from a young age that she was born to be a writer. Anyway, although Kirsten’s review http: Not in the beggining, but after half of the book i really liked book and story. 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 w I am only half way through this book but I can’t take it anymore.
And what he wants most, is her. Athena turns her attention to the guests.
