About this deal

Zeus is an interesting character but we don't see much of him and there is just a glimpse of the other gods, though Styx makes more of an appearance than most. Instead, it all happens so swiftly - her moving in and changing the place - it felt unbelievable and quite rude. A fresh feminist take on a classic myth, Girl, Goddess, Queen is ripe with yearning, humour and wit.

She's a badass main character while we get a more soft boy Hades which I adored with my whole heart. Thousands of years ago, the gods told a lie: how Persephone was a pawn in the politics of other gods.I feel that whilst their friendship was explored well, the pining didn't really work out for me, which really made me dissapointed as I wanted to love it so much but I just couldn't. Persephone has way too much 'candy' in narrative terms and the plot does not offer her enough hardship to compensate. Rather he’s an unwitting accomplice, drawn into Persephone’s reckless scheme when she jumps into hell of her own free will.

She does end up of inconveniencing Hades a little in the process, but the enemies to lovers dynamics that we see in their first encounter was utterly delicious. This fierce and funny feminist take on a classic story weaves seamlessly from rage to romance and is an absolute joy! But faking an epic love story to fool history brings with it complications neither of them anticipated, including the very real feelings they begin to have for each other, which become increasingly difficult to turn off when they’re away from their captive audience.

He was exactly that and I was very glad Fitzgerald focused so much on him and had him be an active participant of the story. Her emotional journey and growth from dutiful daughter into a confident, formidable Queen was really satisfying to watch, as was her fury and defiance regarding Zeus and Demeter’s plans for her future. And for this one, its a retelling with a bit of a mix where Persephone is the one who is smart and cunning whilst Hades is the soft one in this relationship. Kore, little girl , has spend all her life locked on an island and is raised for one purpose; to be the perfect daughter.
