Review: The Iron Queen by Kaitlin Bevis

Life is hell for Persephone. Zeus will stop at nothing to gain access to the living realm and the Underworld. As the only living god with a right to both, Persephone’s in trouble. Captured and tortured beyond the limits of her resolve, Persephone must find the power to stand against Zeus. But will she be strong enough? 

Meanwhile, Hades contemplates desperate measures to rescue his queen. Persephone never thought of herself as dangerous, but there’s a reason gods never marry for love. A being with the power to destroy all of creation shouldn’t place more value in one individual than the rest of the planet. But Hades . . . Hades would break the world for her. 

To save the world and stop both Hades and Zeus, Persephone must make a difficult choice. One that may cost her everything.

I have loved this series from the first book.  I love that Kaitlin Bevis made Hades, who is often portrayed villain, the hunky hero.  It's been fresh twist in the sea of books based on Greek mythology.  The Iron Queen begins right where Daughter of Earth & Sky left off.  The characters, like with the two previous books, are amazing and well written.  Aphrodite has a huge part in this book and her story is a combination of both sad and empowering. Zeus has Persephone and Hades is ready to burn down the universe to find her.  As Zeus tortures Persephone beyond imagine, the rest of the deities come together to rescue her and save the world.  But it's Persephone's most human like qualities that help her gain the strength she needs to battle the most powerful and sadistic of Gods.  I loved the ending and I think it may have left an opening for more books or another series.  I would recommend this series to anyone looking for something original and different.

Mild language and sexual content.
