I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started to read Scarlett St. Clair’s books. That is my own doing, though – I didn’t even read the synopsis of these books. I saw Persephone and Hades, which was all it took for me to decide I would read this book.
I have always loved Greek Mythology. I even took a Greek Mythology course that one time I went to University for a year. I still have the books to prove it.
Currently, St. Clair’s Persephone and Hades series sits at two books, A Touch of Darkness & A Touch of Ruin, with book three arriving later this year titled A Touch of Malice. All three of those books are written from Persephone’s perspective, as far as I am aware anyway.
St Clair has also treated us with other books in this series; they are essentially the same or at least book one & one(point)five are the same – one(point)five being from Hades’ perspective. A Game of Fate and A Game of Retribution are available now. According to St. Clair’s GoodReads account, book three in the Hades Saga will be available in the fall of 2022.
I suggest you don’t follow in my footsteps and check out the synopsis of these books before deciding to read them. I quickly realized I wasn’t just reading a book about the Underworld – these books are filled with erotica. Don’t get me wrong – I have no issue with it. I just literally had no idea what I was in for!
In the end, as soon as I finished book one from the Persephone & Hades Saga – A Touch of Darkness, I picked up book one from the Hades Saga – A Game of Fate. Because they are essentially the exact same book, I decided to review them together.
I don’t know if I will end up going back to this series or not. I mean, I love Hades. I have always loved Hades, and I did like him in St. Clair’s book. Time will tell – but don’t expect reviews for the second books in these series anytime soon.
