Read & Download The Dark Wife ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Gods and goddesses on Mount Olympus But when Persephone meets the enigmatic Hades she experiences something new choice Zeus calls Hades lord of the dead as a joke In truth Hades is the goddess of the underworld and no friend of Zeus She offers Persephone. I ll just say it right off the bat I really loved this book A large part of my love comes from the fact that there are very few YA books that represent me Most YA books that have gay main characters usually deal with the coming out issue or having the main characters dealing with their sexuality It s always an issues book I m not saying those books are bad far from it I think we need those books if they help gay teens but we also need books where the sexuality of the main character is nothing to really be commented on and their life doesn t completely revolve around it The fact that a book exists that accomplishes this and is also a retelling of one of my favorite Greek myths Consider me estatic I loved how Diemer expanded on the myth of Persephone and Hades offering a version that could have happened but got misrepresented and misunderstood throughout time Persephone s myth is a little tricky to properly retell Once you get her to the Underworld what are you supposed to have her do The original myth pretty much glosses over all that with a simple she got homesick so she went back home for a bit Persephone does get a little homesick in this book but it doesn t force her home It was a realistic reaction to being underground in a relatively dark place but she didn t let it rule her Diemer expands on Persephone s time in the Underworld having her learn how things work taking an interest in the kingdom around her She shows why Persephone will make a wonderful ueen of the Underworld by Hades side Diemer doesn t just expand on the Persephone myth but also other various features of Greek mythology right down to the Elysian Fields It s all believable and obviously well thought out As for characters the one I loved the most was Persephone which is fitting She s a goddess who s been sheltered her entire life but she s also compassionate and loving and though she doesn t think so incredibly brave Through her courage she changes the world she knows from the Underworld to Olympus and it was beautiful to read about Her journey as a despairing woman who feels she has no control over her own life to a woman who reclaims herself her agency and power and life was very wonderfully done and it was empowering as hell to read All the main cast are wonderfully written and Hades is no exception a kind and compassionate goddess of the Underworld who loves her subjects even though they hate and fear her in return The chemistry between Persephone and Hades was incredible and you can see why they d obviously work well together and be wonderful ueens Also of note was how Demeter was changed from a controlling selfish mother to one who couldn t escape Zeus rule so did her best to protect her daughter from the worst of it There were uite a few scenes between Demeter and Persephone that made me tear up The writing was smooth and beautiful the description vibrant Though I admit I can see it not working for everyone sometimes it does swing a little too close to purple prose I was never particularly bothered by it and in fact I rather loved it I could easily envision myself in the Underworld or the Immortals Forest thanks to the clear description and atmosphere Diemer creates The pacing was steady throughout with hardly a slow moment and Diemer packs a lot of stuff into a 250 page book but none of it hardly ever felt rushed save for the ending The ending was a bit rushed and I do rather wish the resolution could have been fleshed out but the rest of the book than makes up for that by a longshot The Dark Wife was a beautiful moving tale of a goddess finding herself in an unfair and cruel world and reclaiming herself in the face of it It s definitely a must read for anyone interested in well done retellings or a reader who s looking for representation in a genre that only represents us a certain way It s a new favorite book of mine and I will eagerly devour anything else Sarah Diemer writes Reign of a King Kingdom Duet #1 part of my
