Description

I actually bought this book by accident, but I decided to read it anyway, and it was a really good read. I also loved river goddess Styx (one of the supporting characters) the best and sassiest wing woman a Goddess (or God) could ask for!

I am on the edge with anticipation for the second book as this ending was somewhat of a cliffhanger. At the point the story is happening, Persephone could have been hundreds of years old and still the youngest of the gods. A fresh feminist take on a classic myth, Girl, Goddess, Queen is ripe with yearning, humour and wit. Bring[s] to life timeless gods, the complex intimacy of family bonds, a fierce protagonist, and a passionate slow-burn romance. And when she meets the rude and annoying ruler of the underworld she traps him into giving her shelter and time find a way out of the marriage that’s waiting for her.This was definitely one way to solve the age-gap issue and a unique take on the timeless story of the birth of the Olympians. Readers were expecting wonderful things from Bea Fitzgerald’s debut, and it doesn’t disappoint in the slightest. I also really liked Fitzgerald’s depiction of Hades, who is portrayed as a kind, gentle and introverted person with a love of art and heaps patience and compassion for Persephone. If you enjoy pining and characters that try to hide their feelings even though everyone knows you both should be together, this is it!

Even as their alliance dissolves into friendship, friendship blurring into something deeper, she stills struggles to understand that he’s not trying to trick or weaken her. I don’t think this was the case with this one, and I think Fitzgerald did a really great job of making the world, the characters, the politics etc really easy to digest and follow along with.I liked it enough to carry on reading, hoping it would improve, but I wasn't keen on the characters and how they were written. While I enjoyed the setting and the idea of the reimagining of the greek gods, the execution left me feeling disappointed.
