I found the high school-level college drama to be cringey as all hell…until I found myself hanging onto every word. Don’t judge me! I may have gotten a little bit invested. When I checked the audiobook player, I was a bit bummed to see how short it was.

I did feel like I was missing some context. A lot of the names sound vaguely familiar to me but names are one of the most useless things in the world to me. If Persephone’s name wasn’t in the title, I’d be able to say I’ve forgotten every character’s name already. I think it’s a unique and interesting take to put a bunch of gods in a modern setting though. Too bad it wasn’t longer. But I appreciated the message at the end.

I did have to hear the narrator say “onvelope” one too many times. I’m going to lazily recycle this bit of my review from All Your Twisted Secrets: The narrator repeatedly says “onvelope” which drives me crazy. Envelope – envelop. If something were to be enveloped in darkness, you wouldn’t say onveloped in darkness. If you think I’m being nitpicky, you’re goddamn right I am! I can’t stand when people who are supposed to be professional narrators mispronounce basic words. Just search my blog for my mentions of “acrosst”, “carmel” or “farmiliar” to see other examples.

The rest of the narration was pretty good.
