    Voy a ser indulgente y a valorar al libro por lo que representa en la historia completa. La historia de Perséfone y como llegó a abandonar su inmortalidad a cambio de salvar a Adonis.La historia es compleja, y como toda la serie esta muy bien hecha.Sin embargo, yo no logro tener simpatía por Perséfone. Quizás podría haberla entendido en la primera mitad, era joven y fue forzada a hacer algo contra sus sentimientos. Su rechazo a seguir las o...

    ¿Cómo era posible sentirse tan vivo cada día y no reventar? Este libro tiene tres estrellas pero no son para nada para Persefone. Las dos estrellas son: Una para Aimée por no hacerme amar a Persefone ni sentir lastima por ella.Y la otra, mitad para Henry, mitad para Hermes.Odio a Persefone.La odio y Hades, ni Hermes, ni nadie me hará cambiar de parecer.¿Como sera posible que ese ser causara tanto daño a la gente?Ok, entiendo que al princip...

    Ok so I have read the other reviews and on one hand I agree Persephone is selfish but look at it from her point of view. She is forced into a marriage by her parents to someone who although she likes she doesn't love. Then she is also forced to live underground away from the sunlight and life, and on top of that she has to rule. I am not condoning her cheating no way but I do feel compassion for her, in the end she was only trying to be happy. So...

    "You're selfish, Persephone. You're the most selfish person I've ever met. You hurt Demeter. You hurt Hermes. You hurt Hades so badly that he's nothing more than a ghost of who he was before you ripped his heart out and fed it to the dogs. You hurt people again and again, and the worst part about it is that you don't care." Burn, Persephone, burn. Aphrodite's got a good point and you know it.

    This was a bit too long for my liking, I simply couldn't stand Persephone anymore after a while. But the end made me cry so there's that.

    3.3 starsI really wish I could give half stars on this website.I really hated Persephone. But, like with Hera/Calliope, I saw where she was coming from. (That still doesn't give her any right to hurt Henry that way. I still don't like her at all. Not my boy, Persephone. Any boy but him) This one, also read like a fan fiction at times. I really didn't want to see my boy Henry sad. He deserves to be happy. And that ending. UGh, Persephone. You spen...

    I really liked this book and I think Persephone was really annoying. However, something at the end of her book really had me thinking. When she asked the counsel to become mortal and they granted to her it hit me that Hera might have done something to her before her and Hades got married. Did anyone notice that Persephone brought up "the wall" when she was hugging Hera? And how it went away afterwards? I think Hera was the reason why those two di...

    Review Taken From The Pewter WolfPersephone's story isn't the one we know. Forced into a loveless marriage (for her) to Hades, Lord of the Underworld, against her will, she wonders if she will ever escape or find real happiness...*intakes deep breath*A few years ago, I think I would have liked this. A few years ago, when I read The Goddess Test and all the eNovellas I blitzed (The Goddess Hunt, The Lovestruck Goddess and God of Thieves), I think ...

    Before I start this review I need to clarify something. I see "mythology" as religion. Because it is in fact, religion. Typically it's a religion that isn't widely practised any more and potentially not practised at all. The term mythology also tends to be used for just about any religious practice that is not a branch of Christianity. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ME USING THE PHRASE RELIGION/RELIGIOUS PRACTICE IN PLACE OF MYTHOLOGY DO NOT READ ANY...

    I was dreading Goddess of the Underworld a bit after meeting Persephone in Goddess Interrupted. I hated her immediately, and wasn't sure if I would be able to enjoy a novella all about her. Well, I did like it for the most part, but not because it made me like her. This short starts with Persephone and Hades' wedding. She's dreading it, but she's willing to try. Unfortunately, after a disastrous wedding night things are not looking up. She is mis...

    I had always felt bad for Persephone, but that was until I had the chance to read this novella, in which I discovered that she had been with not just one man, but two, when she was married to Hades, and that fact seemed to completely go over her head and not faze her in the least. Yes, she wanted to make Hades happy in some points, but mostly what she had done had been for self gain and to make her life better, and in return it hurt Hades greatly...

    I gave this one 3 stars not because of the writing or plot (even if it was a little dull for my taste) but because I don't like Persephone, I really can't stand her, yes I understand her reasons, and I probably wouldn't have done something different than what she did, but instead of feeling sorry for her, I felt the pain of Hades. Although he should have stopped everything since the beginning, you could see that he tried his best to make her comf...

    “Searching for love is hard”Persephone, I really feel awkward about her character in the series and still I feel the same after reading this. First she relay on Hades, then with Hermes, then again with Hades and until she met the mortal one…Adonis. I must say I hate the way she thinks and I am so annoyed by her decisions. It’s really confusing.[image error]I feel sorry for Hades, she was his first love and it sucks that she never loves hi...

    I really hated Persephone in this story. I know this story was supposed to make the reader understand what she was going through, and I did. However, the way she handled the situation was horrible. At the end of the story, she tells Henry/Hades that he was her best friend, but they barely talked to each other. She was selfish. I just don't understand how you can despise someone so much if they truly love you. I guess the story did make me like an...

    These novellas are really, REALLY good at making you understand the viewpoints of each character. Though we once only saw Persephone as the 'bad guy', we see more clearly that she simply wanted to be happy. We see the guilt and shame she went through when she hurt those around her, and we also see her perseverance to do what she wanted. She wanted the CHOICE, and that was the most important thing.

    Hearing Kate's thoughts & feelings in The Goddess Test and esp. in Goddess Interrupted I was initially resenting Persephone. That all changed when reading about the eons and eons of loneliness and how she was used as a tool for revenge against Hera. She felt trapped. She had lost all hope of loving someone she use to dream of. Adonis brought life back into her. In the end she was meant to give up her immortality.

    I still hate Phersephone, I can't stand her...So this is the story about how she cheated several times on Hades and how she met Adonis, I hab ego say Adonis is so annoying and I cantpossibly understand what she finds intriguing about him, he can't even have a say in anything whatsoever....I bet you if he were honest he would have probably chosen Aphrodite over her...And is it true that Hera has done something to Phersephone so that she can't love...

    Didn't like Persephone before and hate her now...She's so selfish even Hera and Zeus can't beat her there, and calling Aphrodite whore is so low of her considering that she was doing the same while she IS not the goddess of love and sexuality... At least Aphrodite loved her husband with all his flows...And Adonis.. I liked him actually before but in this book I just learned that he was a weakling... Really they deserved each other

    Out of the 3 short stories that I have already read.. This one was my favorite!! It was emotional it was realistic and it was really great to finally hear the story from Persephone's perception. And seeing everything and finally being able to connect the dots with the first 2 books was also pretty cool. This was also a more touching story as we have to see what she was going through and on the last pages I was about to cry... It was just a really...

    Can Persephone be any more annoying and whinny? Gah, I about beat my head on the wall with how much she complained. I get that she was unhappy but she could have done A LOT worse than Henry/Hades. I mean, he was okay with not being her husband completely! Whatever, I'm over it. But she sure made this short book feel realllly long!

    I like this series, but not this particular short story. Persephone is just vile. Selfish and juvenile. This story just explains just how bad things were between Henry and Persephone, but makes Henry seem silly for hanging around for her for so long. Really don't like Persephone and was glad to stop reading about her.

    Out of all of these so far, this is by far my favourite. This is the story of Persephone and Hades and the rule of the Underworld. I think I liked it so much because Aphrodite pisses me off, and she gets overruled by Zues. That made me smile. Also, this was the only one I've read so far that actally had a happy-ish ending.

    This book was a historical look at Persephone. Married off unhappily to Hades, trying to find happiness.It certainly gave you some perspective of her character, who I really didn't like in the main novels.I felt torn really, sometimes I thought she was selfish and others I really felt sorry for her.This is probably the best of the novellas so far.

    Quick short story of the Goddess trilogyPersephone was never my favourite but it was good to get to know her charactor more, and see different sides of the others. I was always a fan of Ava but I started to dislike her after this story!

    I kinda didn't like Persephone so biased feelings here and there but this novella made me understand the trilogy more so I guess it's okay. I liked it.

    This one was a little odd. I didn't like it as much as the others.
