RELEASE BLITZ: HADES: Stephanie and the Merciless Reaper by Theodora Taylor! + My Review

HADES: Stephanie and the Merciless Reaper by Theodora Taylor is now live!

I was born a few moments after midnight on January 1st. On my 21st birthday, my father throws me the most lavish New Year’s Eve birthday party Baton Rouge has ever seen–then he tells me I’m a woman now, and that means I belong to a man he owes a blood debt.

No, not a man. A demon who feeds on my family’s pain and suffering. Especially mine.

His name is Hades Fairgood. But he is neither good nor fair.

He’s the twisted ruler of a biker underworld, and everything my dead mother warned me to avoid. Dirty rich, stupid hot, and merciless. There’s not even a smidge of human left in his bitter, vengeful heart. I find that out the particularly cruel way when he renames me Persy–short for Persephone and has PROPERTY OF HADES tattooed across my back.

So that I never forget…

I’m his possession now. He owns me, mind, body, and soul.

He’s a needlessly beautiful monster who I must escape. Of course, I must.

It’s just…

The longer I’m with him, the more confusing it becomes. Is he a merciless monster or a wounded man in need of love? My love?

I’m screaming! What the heck did I just read? Everything was rocking along with Hades and Persy’s backstory, filling in the blanks left from the previous stories in this terrific series and then the epilogue hit. My mind exploded! I have more questions now than I did at the start. I love this crazy series with brutal brothers, their captive ole ladies, the fierce brotherhood, and the outrageous antics. Hades has always been the hot enigma with tons of charm and a fierce hold on the mysterious Persy. With all his hotness I just knew he was a bad man. He treated Persy like a slave and I didn’t like that at all. I gathered she got loose at some point, especially with a sighting reported by Vengeance in the last story, but we didn’t get the details of her escape in this story. Oh no, what we got was a WTF epilogue that was a break in reality. I can’t wait for the next part of this crazy story to fill in the blanks. This author has a talented for creating reprehensible antiheroes with just enough hotness that you want to forgive their bad behavior. They do have their moments of swoon-worthy sexiness. Then there is the group of ole ladies with strength enough to match these hardened criminals and win their love. I will say that I melted with the reveal of the inside story about Hades, his past and his feelings for Persy. This is one heck of the a series with wild, wicked brothers that rule their domains and women with a ruthless dominance and cold viciousness. Nobody challenges what’s theirs and lives. The romance is a tenuous balance between harsh authority and sexy dominance with the women being all loved up. This is an absolutely fabulous addition to this crazy series. Loved it!
