Queen of the Underworld, by Helen Scott | Book Review

Hello and welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog, I have my book review of:

Queen of the Underworld, by Helen Scott.

Queen of the Underworld is the last book in the Cerberus trilogy.

Triggers / Content Warnings: Sex, Fighting, Pain.

Note that I there’s a chance that there are other triggers that I didn’t note down.

Poppy’s to-do list might be short, but it is difficult.

1. Make it to the Underworld before the insidious human organization that wants to control it
2. Defend the Underworld the Norse goddess of Helheim
3. Claim the throne

A battle for the Underworld is brewing. Taking the throne might be close to impossible between having a goddess and a secretive human organization bent on the domination of all the realms on her tail. How can Poppy, her hellhounds, and her judges defend it?
It doesn’t help when one of her judges goes missing while she sleeps. When they fall under attack Poppy must choose between fighting, staying safe, and searching for her missing man.

After a wild chase through the Underworld, Poppy has three questions. Who can she trust? Who will betray her for power? How many more secrets the Underworld is hiding?

Don’t miss the final book in the Cerberus trilogy!

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.

Like the first 2 books in the trilogy, Queen of the Underworld moves quite quickly. At the end of this third book you find out just how long its been since Poppy’s journey first began. — I make note of this since in my review of the first book, I thought only a few weeks had passed.

I’m not going to lie… I’m bummed that we didn’t get to see more of these characters after everything had settled dow. Like, did they go back to the human world? Is Poppy’s best friend freaking the fuck out after not hearing from her friend for months?

Queen of the Underworld has the fastest pace of the trilogy, so QOTU was an insanely fast read for me. I think I read it in just over an hour, maybe two.

This may only make sense to people who’ve read Queen of the Underworld, but I couldn’t not picture Hel as Hel was portrayed in the marvel movies, by the way.

Lastly, the Cerberus series is most definitely a reverse harem series, hahaha.

I gave Queen of the Underworld, 3 stars.

Have you read the Cerberus series?

Thank you for stopping by.

See you soon, and happy reading!
Adele
