The cold months have come to western Pennsylvania, so it is time to cuddle up inside with a book. There are so many new releases right now, so it is hard to find a place to start. Here’s why you should pick up “Neon Gods” by Katee Robert.
The novel begins with the Greek God Hades being seen as a myth. Persephone, the female lead, believes in him even though her sisters try and sway her not to. Persephone’s mother, Demeter, sells her out to Zeus, who is known for treating his wives badly and even killing them.
When Persephone crosses the River Styx to get away from Olympus, she runs into Hades alive and well. The two make a deal to try and bring down the current Zeus and make Olympus safe for Persephone. However, they become attracted to one another while pretending to be lovers to make Zeus angry.
Persephone and Hades jump through many obstacles to allow for her safe return. Are they able to do it? Will they actually fall in love during the journey?
I really enjoyed “Neon Gods.” The back-and-forth relationship between Hades and Persephone was intoxicating to read. Their immediate chemistry made for them to be an interesting pair.
The best part about this book is that I first found it on TikTok. It is the type of book that you would pick up to get out of a reading slump. It’s super fun and easy to get through!
