Overview

Persephone has been running for her entire life. Running from the humans to keep her immortality a secret. And running from a man who haunts her dreams. Not a man but a god, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. And what he wants most, is her.

Trapped in the realm of the dead, Persephone plans to return to the land of the living. The underworld is a terrifying place where ghosts roam freely, three headed dogs patrol the gates, and it’s a living grave where the rules of earth and the warmth of the sun no longer apply. But then, something unexpected happens. Persephone finds herself falling for the god who abducted her, the god who has chased her for five thousand years, a god who is none other than death himself, Hades.

Ripped out of the underworld by Zeus, Persephone must find a pomegranate to return to the realm of the dead and to her beloved. Consuming only a seed of the fruit of the dead would bind Persephone to spend her life beneath the earth’s core with Hades. But Zeus has reduced every pomegranate tree in the world to ash. Except one. Persephone must locate that one remaining pomegranate tree, a quest that could ignite a war between the two mightiest of the god’s. A war that could cause Persephone to lose the only family she’s ever known or give up a love that comes only once every five thousand years.

    I don't know why but I have a thing for Hades and Persephone re-

    I don't know why but I have a thing for Hades and Persephone re-tales of the story. It always intrigues me to no end. So when I picked up this book I knew I love it. And with the unique twist on the story, I fell in love with it.

    Besides the fact that it is a modern day re-tale of Hades and Persephone I really like the pursuit of it. I like that Hades chased Persephone and that she was unaware. The plot of the book is action filled and keeps you at the edge of your seat. I liked the development of Persephone feelings and the way she acted. To see her change and get to know Hades is wonderful.

    Obviously we all know the love interest, but what also caught my eye is the attraction to Adonis. I love that Persephone seems certain but uncertain at the same time. It's creates for much more drama to come. Overall, I loved it!

    Asphodel captures every bit of your imagination. Lots of running, righting, and emotions flowing off the pages. Asphodel is the start of trilogy that I know I will come quickly addicted to!

    Awesome Book -- So Many Errors!

    I really enjoyed this book as a whole! I would have given this book 5 stars, but unfortunately there were so many grammatical and word errors in this book that it was almost hard to read at times. It got very annoying and troublesome for me, but that's my only complaint! It did go by quite fast, but thats a good complaint to have! All and all I loved the book, but the errors made it a bit of a nuscience to me.

    So-so

    I thought it was ok. There were several grammatical errors that after awhile were just too distracting to ignore. Also Persephone really bugged me. She tried to act all brave but was a big blubbering baby through most of the book. That might not bother you so much but i prefer the protagonist to have a little bit more of a back bone. The idea was good and the book is only 99¿. However I personally like "The Goddess Test" better.

    Must read it!

    Ahhhhh! I loved it! I simply can not wait for the next book! I highly recommend this book! It is sort of has a beauty and the beast feel to it. The only thing bad I can say is it has a few typos but nothing to major. I would have paid way more for this book it is that good! :)

    Awesome!

    I absolutely loved this book. I honestly couldn't put it down. The heroine in this novel is slightly predictable amd the hero, Hades himself, is completely intriguing

    Just to get your hopes up...

    Maybe the reason she's taking so long is because she is taking a while on the next one? And since it's a trilogy, she also could be writing the next one! Does that work... heh heh?

    Good fun for fans of Mythology with a modern twist

    Ok.....seriously?? Lauren Hanmond, do you just poop gold?! I really did not expect to like this book as much as I did. Clearly I have read other books by the author, and just reading the blurb from this one I really had my doubts. I was very pleasently surprised. I liked the mix of modern and mythology. I enjoyed hearing Hades and Persephone's story. It was neat to see a different side to the, pretty much ultimate bad boy. I just hope the second book comes out soon! I would love to read more of this series!!!!
