    Wow wow wow Hands down one of the BEST series I have EVER read I actually cried I never cry while reading but this had me tearing up I love all of the characters even the horrible ones The love and devotion the H and h had for each other spilled off the page The H especially was so amazing ive never read a humble endearing captivating hero in all of my years on Goodreads Just wow God he was almost TOO PERFECT I recommend to anyone who wants to read somethign of substance and is willing to sit down and know intricate details of greek mythologyFavorite uote“I was scared I thought if you knew you’d won me that you would lose interest and abandon me the way Zeus did to my mother” she said warily and saw an incredulous half smile uirking the corner of his mouth“Can the sun find its match in anything but the moon? Can the heavens lose interest in the earth?”

    The best thing about this duology is the world building It is amazing Obviously the romance of Hades and Persephone too but in this book it felt a little repetitive Overall it was an enjoyable read and it made me want to read retellings about this couple and about greek mythology in generalpd it says at the end of the book that the story will continue but this ending was perfectly wrapped up and there is no info on the third book so I'm assuming this is a completed duology

    Best book series Ever This is an example of well researched and exceptionally well written story telling at its finest one could almost touch the surroundings and felt like I was peeking in and their lives I plan on restarting these two books immediately they have so much detail and vivid descriptions it's impossible to capture all at once I picked these out for my love of Greek mythology and stories of the Underworld and fell in love with all the characters I loved how the stories we all know and love were so well intertwined with the characters' development throughout the series Hecate has always been a favorite and she is even now I hope to one day soon have these books in my bookshelf Can't wait for the next one this author has a new fan for life

    This was a good seuel to the first one I can't believe there's going to be another book But it was at the end so I guess there will be

    This book is honestly so good I love how it showed Hades and Persephone's relationship and especially Persephone's role as ueen of the Underworld I just love itThe only reason why it took me so long to finish is because of the level of frustration I had for Demeter She's so selfish overbearing close minded and irrational I can't even Ugh Although it does makes sense since I read somewhere that she had this obsessive love for her daughterBut it still made me want to go inside the story and knock some sense into her myself My eyes literally hurt from the number of eye rolls I did because of herIt made me stop reading for a while because I just didn't want to deal with her lol

    The Receiver of Many series is a well researched and feminist take on the HadesPersephone myth Alexander puts effort into not just exploring Greek mythology but tying in aspects of Greek culture This Persephone is given a heavy dose of agency separating her from other retellings that tend to portray her as meek and at the mercy of circumstance While the other Gods of Olympus maintain their well known fickleness and dramatics they're given some added depth especially the goddesses There are so many strong female characters that I look forward to reading about in future books Hades tends to be a controversial figure in this particular myth but he's no domineering brute who forces a Stockholm syndrome situation in this version Instead he's of a Darcy like character who struggles with pride I like that he owns up to his mistakes and supports the female characters He gives Persephone space to work out her issues and allows her to follow through on her own decisions even when he disagrees The sexy bits aren't bad eitherThey aren't forced or thrown in just for the sake of having an erotic scene You could argue that they're physical markers of how their trust evolves Once you race through these first two books you'll be clamoring for the next one

    ”Death is not the end” This might be the best retelling of the HadesPersephone myth I’ve read so far I am seriously in love with the take the author had on the story it’s unlike anything I’ve read before and it made the experience so exciting I’ve literally felt a myriad of emotions while going through the pages of this novel the author managed to grip me so much with her words that I was feeling everything the characters were feeling and I was wanting to murder than a few during some parts It’s been a pleasure to spend my last couple of days with Rachel Alexander’s Hades and Persephone and I’m a little bummed the third installment hasn’t been published yet because I really need to see this story through
