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.
Great story. I’m so glad I read it after a touch of darkness. Beautifully written story love story with spice.
Great Book but…
It took me a long time to get through. I read the first book from Persephone’s POV and loved it. I enjoyed Hades POV, however reading the same story (even from a different POV) didn’t quite hold my attention like I expected. In fact, I stopped the book, read a different book, then came back to finish “A Game of Fate.” I would have preferred reading both POVs in the same book. Overall great book and I would definitely recommend.
I really did enjoy this book, and the way we got to see what Hades was dealing with in the moments he was away from Persephone. We also got to see more of how he viewed himself which was beautifully written. I want there to be a 4.5 option bc I think there were way too many moments (not opposed to some of the moments) where he just thought about his lust, I felt it was just a filler sometimes. That’s MY personal opinion but maybe most people are into it. I did like that not all the scandalous scenes were as descriptive as they were in ATOD. I like the simplicity in when it would just end as they made love. Overall wonderful book and plot ✨
