Lore Olympus, Volume Two: 02/20/23
Lore Olympus, Volume Two by Rachel Smythe (2022) was my last read for 2022. In this volume, Hera interferes in Persephone and Hades's lives by sending Persephone to the underworld in an internship.
The book is mostly either phone conversations between Hades and Persephone or Hera scheming. There are some cute scenes of Persephone with Hades's various hellhounds. She's very good with dogs.
As with many second books in a series, there's not a lot of action. It's mostly slow burn character building. It's setting things up for the next big event or confrontation.
The visuals remain amazing. I love the use of saturated colors and the ways color is used to build character and unite related characters.
Volume three was released on October 11, 2022.
