    1. 4.5 stars❤Let me start by saying that this book was definitely not what I expected when I started itIt was so much better!!It surprised me, and I couldnt have been more satisfied with a Hades and Persephone book❤ I loved it❤What I dont love in this book however, is the cover, I REALLY dont like the coverAnd I didnt really like Persephone, just saying xD

    2. I really loved this rendition of the myth of Hades and Persephone. Beman has not only created a sexy hero in Hades, she has also written a fascinating, mysterious and multi-layered back story for Persephone. All too often, Persephone is portrayed as an innocent witless girl. Not so in this book! She is a curious, passionate and vivacious woman. Typically, Demeter is the only character who treats Persephone like a child. The novel begins with Hades being released by Zeus and Poseidon from the pri [...]

    3. I am greatly impressed by this book. I love the Hades/Persephone myth, and I'm always on the hunt for good novels based on the story -- surprisingly, there are as many as one might expect, and several of them are downright awful. So, my expectations were not all that high when I started to read "My Lord Hades". I shouldn't have been such a pessimist, though, because this story is very well done. Yes, there are several editing issues, which is unfortunate, but for once I was willing to overlook t [...]

    4. I was really excited to start this book, not only is a retelling of one of my favorites myths of all time, but the book seemed to have taken just the right tweaks to make it original and enjoyable. The idea of Hades being a completely different type of god, not only that but an embodiment of the phlegethon river? Making him a god driven by pure emotion and passion. As a fan of hotblooded, brave, passionate warriors, blackdagger brotherhood style, count me in! And the changes in how the olympian [...]

    5. My review also on Ramblings of an Amateur Writer: reenajacobs/blog/2010/11/nI downloaded my sample and dipped my foot in. I was a little tentative… okay, a lot tentative. Am I going to like it? I hope it’s good, my mind said as I read. A few hours later, the sun was rising, and I’d stopped squinting at My Lord Hades like it was out to get me. I could have starred in the Mikey Life Commercials. “She likes it. She likes it. She really likes it.” I sent off a request and a coupon for a fr [...]

    6. In all things Persephone and Hades involved, this book is definitely one of my favorites. Two years ago I've read Stephannie Berman's My Lord Hades and didn't leave a review. After years I've decided to reread this story and once again fell in love with the characters. I liked the twist Berman placed around Hades upbringing.The novel starts with Zeus and Poseidon arguing whether they release Hades from his prison in Tartarus or not. After the brother's banter, Zeus releases him but with a price [...]

    7. Hades and Persephone have always been my favorite of the Greek myths, so I wasn't sure whether I would love this book or hate it. I loved it. When the book opens, we find Hades as a prisoner in Tartarus, tortured by specters of his past. Zeus and Poseidon appear and offer both Kingdom and bride to Hades if he will help them finish the ongoing war with the Titans. It's a simple choice between agony and revenge. Meanwhile, Persephone is living with her mother Demeter. She's lost all of her powers, [...]

    8. i fell in love with Greek mythology when i read the writings of edith hamilton. though Apollo is my favorite among all gods, i am quite fascinated with Hades. Even in books or any other writings,he is elusive that i do not really know about him except he is dark, handsome, rich and he abducted persephoneis book is not the exact retelling of the mythology but ooh i like hades too much that i can forgive some errors. it's nice to read that hades "has" feelings. very opposite of what he is usually [...]

    9. 4.5 StarsStephannie Beman's book My Lord Hades was a wonderful interpretation on the love story of Hades and Persephone. Hades was a great hero, complex and very sexy. He was very tough but so gentle with Persephone. Persephone was a delightful character, also very complex. We started out not knowing much about her and as the story unfolded we discovered exactly who she was. Their characters were explored in depth and I really felt like I got to know them. Both were strong characters and I reall [...]

    10. This book really needed a better editor, but despite that, I really liked it. This book is not meant to be faithful to mythology (many things are changed, like Hades not being son of Cronos and Rhea but Eris, and etc) and there are some tropes I have disliked in all other Hades-Persephone books (as Demeter being overprotective or having male gods trying to assault Persephone). But despite those facts, I really could not put down this book and I've read it 3 times. I'm really amazed that this boo [...]

    11. I didn't like how Persephone was portrayed in this novel. She was naive and a bit amusing at the first part, and then turned whiny and spoiled the next. I hated how she hurt Hades' feelings over and over again. I know she pushed him away due to Demeter's mind games when she was young. I also wanted to punch Demeter's face in this whole novel and really wished I could. But I liked how the author changed the end, instead of the 6-6 month separation, Hades and Persephone stayed together while Demet [...]

    12. I really enjoyed the way the author put together this story from the ancient Greek myth, fleshing out the characters in such a way that they became vital and interesting people.I loved Hades, his honour surviving through his torment and particularly his love for Persephone.Persephone's own journey to reclaim herself was well thought out.Unfortunately, the book was overly long and protracted, at times seeming to drag when it could have been a much more exciting and passionate shorter story. Still [...]

    13. I never thought that I would like this book very much. It has some surprising twist and turns.Hades and Persephone, both of them are very unique characters. There's a lot of interpretation of them through books and movie, but still, I would believe that deep down, Persephone saw something in Hades that is worth believe, trust and love with. Opposite attracts, right? She is like the ray of sunshine in his dark, cold world. Who wouldn't be attracted to the ray ?

    14. Very sweet book! I loved how Hades was described here. He's always thought to be a very scary god, but here he's just a man in love. Persephone also is different: she's not the godess of sring because that's her choice, but because it's necessary to save the humans. She's not so good as usually described. Very good and very different.

    15. This book is not for mythology purists but it is a fun and quick read. It had a little bit of everything. Action, adventure, mystery and romance. It did have some of the foundations of the old myths but Beman really took those stories and made them her own. I will be looking for more books by this author soon.

    16. If you enjoy mythology and romance this book is for you. Stephannie Beman does an excellent job of retelling the Persephone myth with real depth to the characters and a gripping plot. This is my first book by Stephannie but most certainly will not be my last. This version is an adult only read but she had released the same book in a "clean version" under the title "Persephone".

    17. Nothing special about this story. Would have loved it if it was a movie. I felt Persephone to be a phony when she went from openly attracted to Hades to despising his abduction of her. Its like a little girl trying to be an adult or having her new toy taken away from her. two words: not endearing

    18. Great retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth. I love this author's twist on the story. It makes for a great read. I think the romance is my favorite part of the book though. I love when love is used to heal tortured souls. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a good paranormal romance book. FYI, this book has mature content in certain scenes. You have been warned. :)

    19. Cute little romance. Really like it when authors get creative about the Olympians The whole idea of brothers and sisters being closer than close? Let's just say I like Stephannie Beman's version more.

    20. Nice. Woman has the power,Go Persephone! I was annoyed with her for actin like a prissy kid but eventually she grew up.Demeter made me wanna slap her at times but she's a mum. She does what all mum does: worry.

    21. I would have given more stars as the plot and the overall idea was well thought out and executede book however could use some polishing and an editor for typos and some spots for POV issues etc but by and large I enjoyed this!

    22. Loved it!!! I always liked mythological stories and I have more than positively surprised by My lord Hades. Stephannie Beman reshaped a classic tale while making her characters accessible to common mortals :). A must read

    23. The beginning of the book was ok, but halfway through it, I lost all interest. I finished it, but I wouldn't recommend this book.
