Gifted power over life and death, Lysandros has spent millennia in the underworld, listless and alone. The youngest child of Hades and Persephone, he’s been sheltered from the threats in the world above.

Theo Ward hasn’t been so lucky. After watching his mother wither away, he’d do almost anything to have her back. When a messenger appears at the Banneker College of Magic and offers the young professor a chance to save her, Theo can’t pass it up, even if it means going straight into the underworld and dragging her home. But Theo gets more than he bargained for when he crosses paths with the prince of Hades.

Set against the king of Olympus, they must shed their past burdens and learn to trust in each other, so they can face down a storm that threatens to wipe the nation’s capital off the map.

Review
I had a lot of fun reading this story. I have loved Greek mythology since childhood and I loved the unique take on these legends. There are a lot of secondary characters in this story but lucky there is a glossary at the end of the book. The relationship and romance between the two main characters, Theo and Lysandros, while hot and steamy, it did feel a bit rushed. The characters and story were very well written so I can forgive the fast-paced romance. This book was very entertaining and enjoyable.

I highly recommend to all who are fans of mythology!!
