Obs- you came to my place, decided that you will be living here without me agreeing I am not planning to be nice to you, but later they sorted that out and I enjoyed how their story. I don’t think this was the case with this one, and I think Fitzgerald did a really great job of making the world, the characters, the politics etc really easy to digest and follow along with.

Girl, Goddess, Queen takes Hades and Persephone's tale and creates the ultimate rom-com drama with Persephone's growth and journey at its heart. I also really liked Fitzgerald’s depiction of Hades, who is portrayed as a kind, gentle and introverted person with a love of art and heaps patience and compassion for Persephone. I think that's why it took me a while to actually put my thoughts into writing, as I had mixed feelings for this book. Persephone (or Kore) came over as quite immature and at times pretty annoying and Hades wasn’t much better. I felt like every scene was dragged out between chapters and it would have worked better if it was dual perspective for this.Thousands of years ago, the gods told a lie: how Persephone was a pawn in the politics of other gods.

And when she meets the rude and annoying ruler of the underworld she traps him into giving her shelter and time find a way out of the marriage that’s waiting for her. Her mother and father force marriage on her and instead she escapes from it by running to Hades The place and the king.I’m not certain what I expected from this Hades and Persephone retelling, but this was quite different from the many others I’ve read in the past. The romance felt forced and didn't sit right with me - their relationship didn't feel natural and it was quite cringey at times. Essentially all of these changes (plus many more) made me incredibly curious as to how the older myths have now changed as a result of the author’s world building. A place she can hide away for a while until she comes up with a better plan to evade her father’s rage and her mother’s suffocating love.

It was also clunky with phrases you'd expect to see on a modern teen drama or TikTok which considering the context was very jarring. I was way more focused on the character elements of the story and persephone’s personal growth, and I actually didn’t really care for the actual plot of the book weirdly. Zeus sought to belittle his daughter, but jumping into hell gives Persephone the courage to finally stand up for herself. The King of the Underworld is nothing like Persephone expected, and everything that she’d hoped he’d be too. When her mother, Demeter, and father, Zeus, decide it’s time for her to marry and head of to find the perfect match Kore decides to take matters in her own hands.Bring[s] to life timeless gods, the complex intimacy of family bonds, a fierce protagonist, and a passionate slow-burn romance. I love how Hades was portrayed in here (soft Hades made me swoon) and Persephone was potrayed to be a stronger but is still feminine. The romance is perfectly paced, complementing rather than overriding the anxieties and expectations that both characters wrestle with throughout the book.
