My Thoughts on A Game of Retribution (Hades Saga, Book 2) by Scarlett St. Clair

A Game of Retribution by Scarlett St. Clair is A Touch of Ruin from Hade's POV. While the two books occur at the same time with many of the same scenes, there are a lot of new things. Scenes are expanded upon or shown completely differently. As Hades picks up on things that Persephone doesn't, and some additional ones that don't make appearances at all in A Touch of Ruin. So, even though they are essentially the same book, they are different enough that you could enjoy both. Plus, the plot regarding what they do apart is different, which makes A Game of Retribution a good read.…

Tandem Reading Guide of A Touch of Darkness and A Game of Fate by Scarlett St. Clair

Tandem Reading Guide of A Touch of Darkness and A Game of Fate by Scarlett St. Clair

I enjoy reading books in Tandem when they are related (take place at the same time), I flip back and forth between the stories to get the whole picture of what's going on. Usually, I read the books this way on the second reading rather than the first time. So, my experience it's hindered by going back and forth between two different books. Or I've already read the first book. But sometimes that can be really helpful. So, I thought I would share a reading guide for a tandem read of A Touch of Darkness (ATOD) and A Game of Fate (AGOF) by Scarlett St. Clair.…

Review of the Dirty Broken Savages Series by Eva Ashwood

Review of the Dirty Broken Savages Series by Eva Ashwood

I started reading this series last year when I finally decided to read books in the romance genre. I can't remember exactly when I read the first book, but the final book came of the series came out on March 31, 2022. If you read Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight but found you wanted more out of it (mainly plot and better development), the Dirty Broken Savages series by Eva Ashwood is for you.…

My Thoughts on King of Battle and Blood (Adrian x Isolde, Book 1) by Scarlett St. Clair

My Thoughts on King of Battle and Blood (Adrian x Isolde, Book 1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I love Scarlett St. Clair's Persephone and Hades series, so I was curious what her first book outside of that series was going to be like. Especially when I learned it was about vampires. Plus it's an enemies-to-lovers-style romance, which is always filled with tension. Granted the enemies-to-lovers part is one-sided in this book. If you don't want spoilers since I'm going to be sharing all my thoughts on King of Battle and Blood, I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I could not put it down. There are some darker themes and romance scenes are not fade to black. Though I wouldn't say any of the darker moments are very graphic. I'm curious to see where the rest of this series is going to go. I can't remember where the next book in this series is slotted for release since Scarlett St. Clair is still working on publishing the rest of her Persephone and Hades books.…

Thoughts on A Touch of Malice (Persephone Saga, Book 3) by Scarlett St. Clair

Thoughts on A Touch of Malice (Persephone Saga, Book 3) by Scarlett St. Clair

A Touch of Malice by Scarlett St. Clair, takes place a little while after the events of A Touch of Ruin. Persephone now has to deal with the aftermath of her mother's reaction to her engagement to Hades. Not to mention she's still figuring out her magic and herself. Not to mention consequences from things that happened in the previous book. According to the author's guide, this is the last book from Persephone's POV, the book that takes place after this will be a dual perspective between Hades and Persephone. I won't share too many spoilers for the book, but I did want to share some thoughts.…

I Have No Idea Where to Start My Book TBR

I Have No Idea Where to Start My Book TBR

In a recent post, I mentioned how I did a massive book haul. That's a bit of an understatement. So, I decided to pull every book off my shelf that I want to read. And honestly, I have no idea where I even want to start with tackling this pile. Granted, I already started it last month and have posted reviews on every book that I read. This is not even everything if I'm being 100% honest. There are some books I got last year that should be in here as well, but considering how many books this already is I didn't go back to grab those. Maybe I'll end up reading those before some of these, but I thought this would be a fun post to do while I debate on what to read next. Hell, you guys might help me pick which one to start with.…

Thoughts on A Touch of Ruin (Persephone Saga, Book 2) by Scarlett St. Clair

After finishing A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair, I was curious where the rest of the series was going to go. For the most part, everything had been wrapped up. The only real thing that didn't get reflected in the book from the mythology was Demeter declaring wore and Hades/Persephone becoming married. Granted, there were plenty of things to suggest marriage would happen. And Persephone did stand up to her mother. So, that's where I figured A Touch of Ruin was headed. The fallout over Persephone not doing what her mother wanted. Not to mention Persephone and Hade's relationship is now public after they made out in public before vanishing. I won't share too many spoilers for the book, but I did want to share some thoughts.…
