This myth is one of my favourites, so I was really excited to read this book. And the idea is a good one, having Hades be a woman and giving the story a break from the heteronormative tale we all know.So why 2 stars? Well, first of all, I need to point out that it's not badly written, the prose is easy to read and, at times, even quite pretty. But the characters have no depth... I felt absolutely nothing reading about their struggles, it was all very simplistic.
