To appreciate the light, you must first live in darkness…
Hades has been alone for so long that seeing Grimm’s newest acquisition for him has him making several mistakes with Zerina.
The beautiful daughter of Fate should have never been let inside his domain. He should have thrown her out the first time she lifted her lovely gaze to his. He didn’t.
That was my first mistake.
The second was when I touched her.
As the king of the Underworld, I have that right, don’t I?
Not according to her.
That was my third mistake. I should have never let her speak.
The mistakes just keep coming, one after the other, until I make the biggest mistake of all.
I fall in love.

I already gave a snippet of my thoughts of Soul of a Demon by Jamie Begley in my review of Soul of a Woman, but I’ll use this space to further elaborate on why I’m both glad and disappointed that I pushed through this series.
Opposite to how Soul of a Woman started Soul of a Demon by Jamie Begley picked up exactly where the previous story left off which left me excited for this particular story. Sadly that excitement died a sure and quick death when the story took turns and dips that I was both not expecting nor all that fond of.
While I admired Cara and Broni’s strength and backbone when it came to the circumstances that were thrown their way, I quickly became irritated with Zerina’s character because of how snooty she acted when faced with the reality that she was stuck in the Underworld. Even her friend Jinx (I really want to read more about her character) was slightly irritated and somewhat disgusted with her behavior.
Hades’ character I felt was watered down to provide some form of chemistry between Zerina and himself. I also felt that if Begley was going to trash Persephone’s character then she should’ve replaced her with someone I thought could effectively shake Hades out of this destructive rut he found himself in after she cheated on him twice. If anything Zerina just cried when he didn’t cherish her and sing poetic sonnets to her after she feel in love with him five minutes after he seduced her … like girl what?!
But I digress.
Jamie Begley did effectively conclude this series with everyone having a happy ending and with everyone finding out who the overarching enemy turned out to be. I’m glad that I pushed through to the end of this series and I hope that she chooses to update these stories, or at least re-edit them and relaunch them.
