Blurb from Goodreads: Persephone didn’t ask to be the guardian of Hades Dagger, an artifact Hades forged to turn demons into daywalkers. She didn’t ask for the demon blood running through her veins that allows her to touch the thing, either.And she definitely didn’t ask for Jax, a cocky Warrior, to barge into her life and proclaim himself her bodyguard now that Hades wants his dagger back.
Forced to deal with this reality, along with an increase in demon attacks, and the fact members of the Order of Zeus keep turning up dead, Persephone finds her hands full.
When demons tell Persephone that she’s one of them she’s appalled... And a little intoxicated by the power she feels when they call her their queen. Telling Jax about her demon side might turn him away from her forever...
Something bad is brewing, and if Persephone doesn’t figure out a solution, and soon she’ll be responsible for unleashing Hell on Earth.
Review: So let's see if you love Greek mythology, amazing heroines, some hot kisses oh and daggers that may just lead to the end of the world, then this book is for you.
Let's start with the main heroine. Persephone is one kick-ass heroine. I mean she was just amazing. She lost her family because of the dagger and now it's her duty to protect it. The fate of the entire world quite literally lies with her. She loses the dagger and demons come out and kill of the entire human race. So no pressure right? She was able to handle everything quite well. She knew what her duty was and she did her best to perform it. She was brave and totally loyal to her friends. She was willing to do anything to make sure they don't get hurt. She was stubborn but it suited her well and I mean she also had a killer sense of humor so she id definitely great.
Jax, oh man where can I get one of those. I mean he just broke into her house and said that she needs her protection and he's going to live with her now. Isn't he just soooo dreamy?Yeah, yeah I know it sounds creepy but he makes it work so don't judge just go and read. He was a great warrior and was so protective of Persephone. In short he was a totally swoon worthy character.
Now for the part that annoyed me a bit. The love triangle, only she never meets the second guy but she is convinced she loves him because she always meets him in her dreams. Now let me just say he was creepy actually I think creepy doesn't cover he was just a terrible character. Also I knew right away who he was it was obvious the things he was saying plus the events happening where just screaming what was going to happen. Our character didn't figure it out though, which I understand love makes you blind sometimes.
The plot was good except the part that I mentioned above. This is definitely a book to read if you like a good paranormal romance.
I give this book
