I don't know why but I have a thing for Hades and Persephone re-tales of the story. It always intrigues me to no end. So when I picked up this book I knew I love it. And with the unique twist on the story, I fell in love with it.Besides the fact that it is a modern day re-tale of Hades and Persephone I really like the pursuit of it. I like that Hades chased Persephone and that she was unaware. The plot of the book is action filled and keeps you at the edge of your seat. I liked the development of Persephone feelings and the way she acted. To see her change and get to know Hades is wonderful.Obviously we all know the love interest, but what also caught my eye is the attraction to Adonis. I love that Persephone seems certain but uncertain at the same time. It's creates for much more drama to come. Overall, I loved it!Asphodel captures every bit of your imagination. Lots of running, righting, and emotions flowing off the pages. Asphodel is the start of trilogy that I know I will come quickly addicted to!
