Dazzling Brightness by Roberta Gellis

DNF @ 4%

To toil through the other 96% of this Kindle ebook would truly be a feat of the Herculean Labors. Oh my gosh, this was fifty shades of boring. It takes a lot to ruin Greek mythology for me, I tell you, but somehow this book succeeded. And it's not that I'm a romance hater. No, I love that sh*z more than I love avocado toast or juniper lattes from Starbucks. The problem here is that this book is bogged down by the WORST purple prose imaginable. If this book was a scented marker, it would be GRAPE because it is that purple.

I also REALLY didn't like the characters of Hades and Persephone in this. Persephone is a ditzy moron who is captured because she picks up a shiny rock - omg. And Hades is a gentleman creep who I couldn't help but picture in a fedora and going, "Milaaaaaady," or whatever the ancient Greece equivalent of that is. Ugh.

I don't normally review books if I DNF so early on but since I bought this and was really looking forward to enjoying it, I felt entitled.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

1 out of 5 stars
