    Loved it!

    I love modern day retellings of mythological stories and this is one of the best! The author's description of Hades and Persephone brought them to life for me. Hades is a dark, intense, sexy character that Persephone's mother warned her about. Persephone lived a sheltered life and her innocence was everything Hades never knew he wanted. This is a captivating story told in duo POV's and ends in a cliffhanger that left me desperate for the next book.

    Sinful, Sizzling and Utterly Sensational!!!

    Holy Moly, what a book!! All I can say is try to prepare yourself for the epic sizzling darkness that is Luther and the sinful, twisted lusciousness he brings with him! As a big fan of Greek mythology and a huge romance junkie, this book felt like it was almost created with me personally in mind. I loved this book. Luther and Persephone's story is a utterly consuming blend of scorching heat, warring desires, and intense emotional turmoil. Be warned that there is a cliffhanger at the end of this book and quite honestly, the next piece of this couple's story cannot come soon enough to make me happy.

    You left us at the station!

    5 STARS Review by Leah Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog I mean who does not love a story with Hades and Persephone in it? Amelia Wilde took their story as twisted as it is, I mean technically he is her uncle, and wrapped it up in a silky black bow. The build-up in King of Shadows is perfection. And could Hades be any more sinister? I mean yummy? I mean dark and deadly? Hades is written true to character in my opinion. He is not a bachelor looking for the next hookup. He is the ruler of the underworld. He is The King of Shadows. Amelia Wilde can write a book and it is like she picks you up and puts you right into her books. Each scene, each chapter you are standing right in that room as she directs this film that is going on in your head. From the home Persophone grew up in with her mother, to the looming mountain that is standing in the background. Her writing even makes the mountain a character in the book. No, it does not talk and it is not a “character” but it is right there in the background, dark and brooding. The only thing left is I need Summer Queen, pronto! Amelia, you got on that train and you left us at the station.

    Modern take on Hades & Persephone w all the heat

    I have always been fascinated by the Hades & Persephone mythology. (So much so, that my bestie and I named a kitten we rescued Persephone due to a shared custody situation.) Persephone has been sheltered by her mother her entire life. She has reached the point where she wants to escape. To experience things. Her fascination with the New York Public Library...I love it. She has been taught that Hades is dangerous. That he will be her end. So when she finds herself throwing herself at his mercy to save the boy she was meeting, she has no idea what she's in for. Hades (Luther) rules his world with an strict hand. Everyone has given themselves over to him in exchange for something. Little does he expect Demeter's daughter to end up in that position. He is fascinated by the innocent Persephone. He finds himself thinking of her more than he ever has for anyone. They are both drawn to each other. He senses her darkness. She finds herself wanting him to do those dark things to her. Definitely a fantastic modern take on the myth...and a much more adult take on it as well. Dark, dark, dark. Love the dark. This is only the beginning. Ends on a cliffie. Can't wait for the rest. And I so hope Amelia explores the others, Zeus, Demeter...fingers crossed. I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    Good story but...

    Chapter 14 and Chapter 15 are identical. The storyline jumps from chapter 13 to 14, which makes me think that the identical chapter 14 was actually supposed to be an in-between chapter to help the plot get from the ending in chapter 13 to the beginning in chapter 15.
