Hades (Contemporary Mythos, #1) by Carly Spade

“Everyone is born good. It’s what happens through life, which sways them in one direction or the other. They choose.”

I love the grumpy, angsty, tortured, wary God of the Underworld.

I absolutely love the way Carly depicted Hades. He is a good guy who has been portrayed badly within the media. His job and relationships have been manipulated and twisted to fit a modern version that does not necessarily fit who he is. Love it so much!

I felt the relationship between Hades and Stephanie was more realistic. Coming to terms with such a huge revelation would be difficult to accept and believe. And it would also be hard on the person sharing as they would be worried and scared of sharing. I love the way that Carly wrote and explored their relationship!

This book is so engaging and easy to read! I started the series with the last book, Zeus, and am now starting it at the beginning. Each book can be read as a standalone but I’m happy to now be getting back story as well.


Stephanie Costas has always had a passion for humanity. As a digital forensics examiner, she fights bad guys from the technical front. When a closed cold case is dug up, she finds herself becoming consumed to set things right. No amount of eighties music or repeated viewings of her favorite movie Dirty Dancing were enough to distract her. She needed a vacation in the worst of ways.

When she set foot in the gorgeous tropical resort in Greece, she had no idea she’d meet a man claiming to be Hades, god of the Underworld. And she certainly had no idea that he was telling the truth. Her Greek vacation was about to become very…interactive.
