I only got to the part where Persephone finally comes into the book to explain Hades voice in her dream I skipped ahead lsuren a bit but I saw absolutely no glimmers of hope and in the end I just could not make myself read any more because I could feel my brain cells shrivelling and I don’t believe my e-reader deserves that kind of abuse.

Aug 31, Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Now you might be saying, ‘Shauna, you are over-thinking it, go with the flow’. Oh, those Greek Gods were devious characters! Nov 17, Julie Rimpula rated it did not like it Shelves: Sometimes there’d be one that seemed clever, until the author continued it on for an entire paragraph killing it. Honestly, these Greek gods are new to me. Every 17 years, Hades has a 24 hour opportunity to bring her to the Underworld. Anyway, although Kirsten’s review http: I am only half way through this book but I can’t take it anymore.

She has two more novels in the works, as well as some film projects I know its a YA novel but I feel like she would be more self-possessed by now. I can’t imagine my father promising me to anyone, but if he did, other than being quite annoyed, I’d try checking out if that god is someone I could like. I don’t think I could ever hate anything written by Lauren Hammond. Asphodel was referring to a very beautiful flower that only grows in the Underworld.


Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1)

Refresh and try again. Refresh and try again. Even with the cloak up that Zeus had blocking that machine if that’s supposed to be the case, though it was never explained as such all Hades has to do is search for a girl named Persephone.

Not a page later she is bawling and I am not making this up wrapped around his leg like a four year old. Could you imagine being immortal and stuck at 17 or what ever for eternity?

I thought Persephone was a whiny git. Overall, I loved it!

Either she was high when she was writing this or this was book written by her five year old! It’s poorly written, wrong words are used constantly, tenses change at will, there is absolutely NO character development, the plot doesn’t make sense, and- of course- the “heroine” I use the term loosely since she may be less likable than Bella Swann goes from hating Hades to being madly in love with him in about a second flat.

Below are a few passages: I am not much of a grammar police so I won’t bother commenting on her grammar but her asohodel style and metaphors made me gag.

Told from multiple perspectives, I found myself drawn into each character’s view and clung onto every word, waiting for what came next. She acts like such a child. It was mentioned laurdn number of times that Persephone had had many 17th birthdays, the implication seemingly that her age never stretched any further than that, but that was it. Kelly Hashway January 6, at 4: Aspjodel i was worried that the author and I had very differebt idears about how these should be portrayed.


Jan 01, MC Murphy rated it did not like it. Trapped in the realm of the dead, Persephone plans to return to the land of the living. Will Hades get his love back? Nobody loves mythological re-tellings more than ham,ond This is my honest answer to your tongue-in-cheek question. All there is pain.

I liked the development of Persephone feelings and the way she acted. Thanks for the comment on my page.

This cover’s beauty is in its simplicit Asphodel is the first book I’ve ever read by Lauren Hammond and I must say I don’t regret picking it up right when I first got my Kindle.

I was drawn to Aspodel by the cover and the premise of the story. I wasn’t really interested in anything, apart from some parts during Persephone’s time in the Underworld, and the ending, the very ending. That, although she herself The mythology in this was just god awful. Apr 12, Loopy rated it did not like it Shelves: Kamran rated it asphovel was ok Jan 09, Point blank, Persephone was everything to him [Hades]. Jan 17, Shauna rated it did not like it. I don’t know why but I have a hamkond for Hades and Persephone re-tales of the story.
