Hello, and welcome back to Adele Is Reading!
Today on the blog, I have my book review of:
Daughter of Persephone, by Helen Scott.
Daughter of Persephone is the first book in the Cerberus series.
Trigger / Content Warnings: Car Accident, Attempted Murder, Pain, Death scare, Sex.
Please note that I may have not wrote down all the possible triggers.
Poppy is nothing special.
She was making ends meet and trying to enjoy life. But a strange necklace caught her eye at the thrift store. Now, three gorgeous men have stumbled into her life, and she’s torn between being terrified and excited. That is until they tell her she is the future queen of the Underworld.
Not only that, but she needs to bond with her hellhounds, the three heads of Cerberus, and protect the Underworld from a goddess who wants it for herself. Forced to face unnatural enemies, and too-sexy-for-their-own-good men, Poppy must choose: keep the life she’s always had or take her rightful place as queen.
If she survives.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
It’s safe to say that Daughter of Persephone is one hell of a start to a series. I had an absolute blast reading this one.
I have to say that most (if not all) of the story / plot felt so freaking natural and overall Daughter of Persephone was quite the enjoyable read.
Within DOP there are a few different points of view that we read from. Though the main point of view that we read from is the main character.
Speaking of, she’s quite the trooper; getting used to her now normal relatively quickly.
If I were to guess the timeline of Daughter of Persephone, from start to finish, everything takes place over a few weeks. Which is quite fast if I think about it — especially seeing as how I read this book so quickly.
Onto the reverse harem aspect of the book. There’s sex in this book, and I myself enjoyed reading these scenes.
There’s an event that took place in this book wherein (character) almost dies from a seemingly routine event. I can’t put my finger on it—it keeps nagging away at me. A certain someone didn’t follow the rules as they should have, and this resulted in a character almost dying. And since I didn’t write down the name of this particular character in my notes, I’m assuming that this character somehow holds a high position within the book, or towards the main character.
All in all, Daughter of Persephone was a great start to the series. I’m giving it 3 stars.
