BOOK REVIEW: The Iron Queen (Daughters of Zeus #3) by Kaitlin Bevis

Goodreads Description:

Life is hell for Persephone. Zeus will stop at nothing to gain access to the living realm and the Underworld, and as the only living god with a right to both, Persephone’s in trouble. Captured and tortured beyond the limits of her resolve, Persephone must find the power to stand against Zeus. But will she be strong enough? 

Meanwhile, Hades contemplates desperate measures to rescue his queen. Persephone never thought of herself as dangerous, but there’s a reason gods never marry for love. A being with the power to destroy all of creation shouldn’t place more value in one individual than the rest of the planet. But Hades...Hades would break the world for her.

To save the world and stop both Hades and Zeus, Persephone must make a difficult choice. One that may cost her everything.


I don't think I have loved another Greek Myth series as much as this one. This series is AMAZING!! I know I have said it before but I will, gladly, repeat myself....I LOVE HADES!! LOVE HIM LOVE HIM!!!!

Best part of book: In Book 2: Daughter of the Earth and Sky we left off when Zeus confronted Persephone in the park. Then was left with a HUGE cliffhanger. So happy that Kaitlin Bevis picked right up where we left off at.

Well, Zeus really needs Persephone because with her he could gain access to the Underworld and the Living Realm. Zeus is a big ol' jerk, let me tell you and I did not like him at all.  When he finally got Persephone and had her captive, he torture her. He need her to swear fealty to him and Persephone was a lot stronger. Although, I was not sure how long she was going to last because she still had not come into her powers yet.

This book was different than the other two because Kaitlin Bevis told it from three points of view: Hades, Persephone and Aphrodite.  I really, really enjoyed Hades point of view because you could see his real struggle. He loves Persephone, a lot, and wants to save her. I did enjoy Aphrodite's point of view because we could see her struggle with being loyal to her family and doing the right thing. I felt really bad for her at time. 

Hades came up with a plan to get Persephone back and then Aphrodite comes up with a plan. All of which made me hold my breath because I was scared what would happen to Persephone. 

Now, I don't want to spoil what happens but TRUST ME you will not want to put this down!!!

Not so great about the book: I loved the progression of the story. I could not put it down. I LOVED IT!! The one thing I was confused about (and I am hoping that Kaitlin will answer me back on it) the story ended. There was no huge cliffhanger, but I felt like there was still an opening for a another story. Or, possibly, a spin off of the other characters in the book.  THIS WOULD MAKE ME SO HAPPY!!!

You will not be disappointed when you read this series and YES you will fall in love with HADES!
