Review: There are some books that manage to be so, so damn good that they smash your expectations and throw them out of the window entirely. This book, unfortunately for me, is worlds too far from being one of them, I just have to share my reading experience to the world.
The story is simple: Calypso, the Greek goddess of the sea, thinks Hades, god of the underground, is super hot. When Hades gets into major trouble with the Big Guys (Zeus and the like), she swoops in and saves him–with a condition: he must live with her as a prisoner in her lair. Sex ensues.
When I read the blurb and look at the book cover, it really sounds right up my alley. Greek mythology? Check. Women who take action? Check. Interesting-ish plot? Suuuure. The Sea Queen, however, took all of those things and somehow turned them into negative things.
