Book Description:


Hades, God of Death, has no heart. Persephone is determined to prove otherwise…

Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, has no patience for living things or his Olympian brethren. His purpose is order, administering justice to those who enter his realm, and keeping the balance decreed by the Fates. Meeting Persephone sways his focus, her gentle sweetness threatening his control. But he will not be tempted.

Poseidon’s scheming wreaks havoc upon Persephone. Hades has no choice – he must rescue her.

Hades awakens something within the Goddess Persephone. She feels no fear from his brooding presence. In truth, she’s never felt so alive. Every stolen moment together only confirms her instinct: he is meant to be hers. Such a powerful union suit will face opposition – from
Olympus, her troubled betrothed, the Fates, even Hades himself – but she is determined to win his heart.


While not nearly as tragic or heartbreaking as the first book n this series, Medusa: A Love Story, was at times For the Love of Hades was no less amazing!

The mythology surrounding Hades and Persephone is, while somewhat familiar to me, not one I know very well, unlike that of Medusa. So it was very interesting to read about the Hades the man we first meet in book one and learn what was underneath that indifferent yet beautiful face that Poseidon disliked so.

Hades was betrayed by both his brother and his wife in the past so he hardened his heart and kept his peace and quite in the Underworld, only coming to Olympus when ordered by Zeus.

Unlike the other Olympians Hades
was much more…feeling, not so jaded by his immortality I suppose and he could see through Poseidon’s games. Perhaps that was borne of their bad past with each other and Hades just does not trust or expect any good or honor from Poseidon. Or Hades just really sees through him and his games. Either way it does not take away from the fact that he hates the way Poseidon uses humans for his amusement and I really liked this about Hades.

In my review of the first book I know I said I was both appalled and angry with the Olympians at times and that was because of how they were toward the humans. Hades did not seem to be the same way and, again, disliked it so that was a wonderful and very pleasant surprise that endeared him to me all the more.

Persephone it seemed lived a very happy but lonely life. Her mother kept her hidden away from all except a few to protect her. It seemed a pretty drastic way for a mother to protect a child to me but then with those like Poseidon running around? I think I would hide my very beautiful daughter away as well.

That being said Persephone was still very real and innocent in ways; she didn’t play games like the other Olympians and was very honest because she had not been exposed to the Olympians and their ways.

It was pretty much love at first sight between Persephone and Hades but Hades has been hurt in the past and fights it. Honestly he was the perfect tortured hero. Living a lonely life, convincing himself he likes it better that way until a woman he meets lights it on fire.

As with book one we do have more subplot going on and I wonder if we will have a book about Poseidon next? Or maybe his story is just going to stay subplot for all books in the series? I have to admit though he does seem to end up the villain time and time again I am curious as to how things are going to turn out for him.

Honestly, I have not read anything by Sasha Summers that I did not love and I look forward to more works by her, be it paranormal/fantasy mythology romance or her contemporary romance.

Overall For the Love of Hades is a must read for mythology and romance lovers. Hades and Persephone's is a story that will leave you wanting more.

5 Moons!
