Kelly Hashway: Asphodel by Lauren Hammond

Open Preview See a Problem? All I have to say for this book is that the writing is bad. The writing needed work.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Therese Regina Marie rated it it was ok Nov 30, But then, something unexpected happens. The story itself is believable and I found myself enjoying this retelling hammobd a classic myth.

But what annoyed me most of all is not only is Hades not said to also be a teenager but they kiss and his 5 thousand years of stalking means that Persephone is in laurem

Maybe Demeter should be the one to blame since she took Persephone away from the home of the gods, but hey, how ignorant can you get to know little to nothing about your own ancestry? Not a page later she is bawling and I am not making this up wrapped around his leg like a four year old. Kelly Hashway January 8, at hsmmond They aren’t actually seventeen.

However, despite the flaws, I did read asphodep book in less than a day, so I did like part of the plot. But Zeus has reduced every pomegranate tree in the world to ash.

Has to be scary. Hades can literally find them any time. Zeus had always been a power hungry god, but now he was going too far. Especially in a situation where it doesn’t look like the rest of the series is going to be coming anytime soon. I felt that, despite that I was already attached to them, it could have been taken to a completely different extreme.

Very nice review, Kelly. Return to Book Page.

I don’t know how I’d feel to be honest, but one thing is certain, along with the mayhem, there would be great passion. I had seen on Goodreads that it is part of a series, but since it was published a couple years hammonx and there is no mention of a sequel on Goodreads or the author’s website, I figured it was just a mislabel. There were things that I liked and things that I wasn’t so fond of.

Not a man but a god, who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. Addison Books first published December 18th This has hammod been one of my favorite stories of the Greek myths, and this unique retelling is just amazing. There’s an easy way to tie in her neighbor even if she’s home schooled. Good review and great post, Kelly.


Asphodel (The Underworld Trilogy, #1)

Basically, this book read like the rough draft version of a story, the kind scribbled in bits, pieces, and short hand on cocktail napkins soiled with spilled coffee. Melissa Ann Goodwin January 7, at 7: Zeus let out a long sinister laugh. I attempted to read this I looked into the author, Lauren Hammond, and it appears that she has written several books.

And what about aging? To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. However, why the heck would they have multiple seventeen birthdays? Persephone is obnoxiously immature for being years old.

No library descriptions found. The Demigod disappeared through the opening and seconds later a tall, lean muscled man with ash-blonde hair strolled toward Zeus. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Unfortunately, the writing was so poor that I gave up searching for the plot.
