Publisher's Summary

A Touch of Darkness from Hades' POV (with new scenes)!

Hades, god of the underworld, is known for his inflexible rule, luxurious night clubs, and impossible bargains. Used to control, he is not prepared to discover the Fates have chosen his future wife and queen - Persephone, goddess of spring.

Despite her attraction to the god, Persephone, an ambitious journalism student, is determined to expose Hades for his cruel and ruthless ways.

Hades finds himself faced with the impossible - proving his future bride wrong. Regardless of his efforts, there are forces who wish to keep the two apart, and Hades comes to realize he will do anything for his forbidden love, even defy fate.

Contains mature themes.

A great addition to the saga.

At first, I thought this book would be amusing at best but this book surprised me! This book had a lot more world-building and an interesting side story that we didn't even get a hint of in Persephone's POV. We also get to meet a lot more gods and really get to know Hades way better witch was cool.

horrible narrator

sounds like a robot.
story is ok, nice add to book 1 but very challenging to finish through audio.
book 1 of this series on audible ends with the first 2 chapters of this book and multiple changes or edits made which was annoying.

love this story.

I really love this story love that it's not all the same as first book you get a whole different story. I'm not totally in love with the reader but it could possibly be because I was use to how the characters spunder through a females voice and it just didn't sound the same... idk but definitely worth a listen it adds more to the story!

Basically just verbal porn and REDUNDANT after book 1

I saw a comment that this book should be read before “book 2” in the series. SIGH. This is the same story as book 1 (entire repetition) with some added storylines from Hades’ timeline. I did this one immediately after the first book and found it EXTREMELY REDUNDANT. Lastly, it’s mostly just sex. Tiring after a while because it’s literally the SAME experiences as the first book.

I haven’t done book 2 yet but my advice would be to come back to this when you want more from the characters later in the series.

The Narrator was just not a good fit

The story is amazing, but I can’t get past the bland reading by the narrator. His voice is missing any emotion, extremely monotone.. just not good for a novel like this full of sensuality and emotion. I will no longer buy audiobooks by this narrator.

Book is great narration is dull

The narrator would be great at a non fiction, autobiography, or history story. But for a steamy fantasy book, he’s just to “matter of fact”. The book itself is great, I love Hade’s side of the story more than Persephone’s.

Narration made me fall asleep

I loved the story but hated the narrator. He was so robotic and monotoned. Poor inflections. Sounded like he was reading a boring textbook.
They should’ve just have kept Meg Sylvan since we are used to her voice for Hades, and she’s an excellent narrator.

Dear lord the dude reading this ruined the book!

How could one person be so boring to listen to? It was like he had never been with a woman or felt passion at all. He was bleak and monotone. The sex scenes had no passion at all. He really ruined the book.

Hard to listen

The story is great but this reader/narrator is intolerable. I couldn’t even listen to it and had to switch to the book

Good book, terrible performance

The book was great but it was hard to get through due to the narrator. It was so slow and monotone. I felt like someone was reading a itemized spread sheet to me. I know this book is supposed to have a Male perspective and thus I can appreciate a male narrator, but I would rather have Meg Sylvan read the book in her impassioned Hades voice, than listen to Tyler Donne drone on and on.

bad narrator

the reader is really monotone and disinterested and a little creepy sounding?

he also changes the ways names are pronounced which makes it a little confusing to follow. also pronounced peridot pear-oh-dot.

if you’re interested - get the physical book not this audio book.

THE VOICE

I know not every voice actor is right for everyone’s ears but this guy is so disappointing. It’s almost monotonous. I imagine Hades voice as sultry, deep, commanding. And this dude sounds like he’s back in high school being forced to read in English class. I can’t even focus so I stopped listening and opted for the read on my kindle instead.

Switched to kindle on chapter 2

I wish they’d let the female narrator from the other 2 books do this one because she reads a better hades. Listen to a sample or something before blindly downloading or you’ll waste your money
