This is book number 3 in the Hades X Persephone series.
This is the third spicy installment in the “A Touch of Darkness'' books and practically redeemed the series for me! “Malice” shows the growth that came from the unfortunate, immature plot of its predecessor; Persephone is done making rash decisions, and in good time, as her mother Demeter is ravaging the Upperworld with a fatal blizzard, a human terrorist group known as the Triad is attacking gods and godesses, and her engagement to Hades gets unwanted attention from the Olympians, who fear that their marriage will bring an end to their long-held power. Lots of plot, but also lots of romance, discussions of grief and trauma, and a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that’ll make you ache for the fourth installment. — Kirstin Swartz
The next installment in the Hades and Persephone story from bestselling author Scarlett St. Clair. Discover the world of New Athens and the Greek gods in a series that readers are calling "hopelessly addictive."
"I am not sure who you think I am," she said. "But let me be clear—I am Persephone, future Queen of the Underworld, Lady of Your Fate—may you come to dread my presence."
Persephone and Hades are engaged. In retaliation, Demeter summons a snowstorm that cripples New Greece, and refuses to lift the blizzard unless her daughter calls off her engagement. When the Olympians intervene, Persephone finds her future in the hands of ancient gods, and they are divided. Do they allow Persephone to marry Hades and go to war with Demeter, or prohibit their union and take up arms against the God of the Dead?
Nothing is certain but the promise of war.
