Persephone: Hades’ Torment by Allison Shaw
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thank you, Edelweiss, for my review copy.
Visually stunning this is a romantic and sensual take of the Greek myth. Persephone isn’t taken by Hades, instead they have a bond. In fact, Hades is an absolute gentleman. This is highlighted by the contrasting behaviour of Apollo.
I really enjoyed this. The artwork is just stunning, and I liked the portrayal of the gods.

According to the ancient legend, the Lord of the Dead kidnapped the innocent daughter of Demeter–or did he? The truth is, Persephone is no damsel in distress, but a spirited young lady with an overbearing mother. A failed scheme by Apollo leads Persephone to a chance encounter with the mysterious and handsome Hades, who is struck by love’s arrow. Now Hades must wrestle with his aching heart before he loses total control of his feelings, but desire is raging inside Persepone herself.
This sensual take on Greek mythology, a self-contained graphic novel perfect for romance novel readers and beyond, is recommended for older audiences.
