The Dark Wife by Sarah Deimer (Read on Nook)

I read this one in a day, which should tell you something right there. I mean, I do read insanely fast, but I'm also easily distracted, especially is a book is slow getting started.

The Dark Wife is a YA retelling of the myth of Hades and Persephone, with a genderswaped Hades and a far more consensual romance, all told from Persephone's point of view. And yes, Hades is genderswaped but Persephone is not, so it's a lesbian romance. I'm totally okay with this.

It is a very good book, though I felt the ending was rushed, and I could tell the author was reluctant to put her characters in serious danger. But all in all, it was a well written story, and the romance between Hades and Persephone was really sweet. Then again, I'm a sucker for lesbian romance of the fantasy flavor, so I may be a touch biased.

But it was totally worth the $3.99 download price, and I'd certainly recommend it for some fun, fluffy reading!
