A Touch of Sex & A Game of Rock Paper Scissors. Hades v Persephone Scarlett St. Clair

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 SagaA Touch of Darkness, I picked up book one from the Hades SagaA 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.
