Review of Queen of Night: A Hades and Persephone Retelling by Katherine Macdonald

The courts divided.

A heart broken.

A lover lost.

Reeling from the loss of Hades, Persephone grudgingly takes on the mantle of Queen of the Underworld, a role she struggles to fill. Obsessed with reopening the way to Tartarus and finding her mate, Persephone must balance her responsibilities as queen with following her heart… or risk the destruction of the entire human race.

For something is stirring in the pit, and betrayal will come from unexpected places…

This book was a nice continuation of Thief of Spring. It was an easy read, and the ending was predictable. Very little spice, more of a PG13 suggestion really. I wasn’t quite keen on the very long backstory in the beginning, not because it wasn’t nice, but because it didn’t really fit in with where we thought we’d start and although it was nice to read, it was filler. Did love the epilogue.
