"The rumor mill of Olympus is constantly churning, but Persephone and Hades are all anyone can talk about. With the constant gossip creating intense pressure on the pair, they decide to slow down their budding romance and focus on sorting out their own issues first. But that's easier said than done. Hades struggles to find support in his personal life, with Zeus trivializing his feelings and Minthe resorting to abusive patterns in their relationship. And while Hades tries to create healthier boundaries where he can--like finally putting a stop to his sporadic, revenge-fueled hookups with Hera--he still feels lonely and adrift. Persephone feels equally ostracized as her classmates shun her for her connection to Hades, and she can find no refuge at home, with Apollo constantly dropping by unannounced and pushing his unwelcome advances. And on top of it all, the wrathful god of war, Ares, has returned to Olympus to dredge up his sordid history with the goddess of spring, threatening to surface Persephone's dark and mysterious past and ruin her tenuous position in the land of the gods. Despite agreeing to take it slow, Persephone and Hades find themselves inextricably drawn toward each other once more amid the chaos. The pull of fate cannot be denied"--… (mere)

I just love the Hades and Persephone written this way, him wanting to protect her and her making him feel safe and wanted. ( )

This series is an extraordinary retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth. Myths change and adapt to new settings and Rachel Smythe has facilitated that process in a stellar fashion. It is really the best comic out there. ( )

I love the Lore Olympus books and Volume 4 was no exception. They’re so stunning to look at and full of such great scenes. I loved the further exploration of Persephone’s trauma and the ways in which she tries to establish boundaries with Hades. She’s really coming into herself and building confidence which — we love to see.

Can’t wait for the next installment in October! ( )

Not my favorite installment of the series - but still good enough to keep me going. We start to learn more about Persephone's childhood and Hades motives. I like this series and the illustrations in this graphic novel are unmatched. I can't wait for the 5th one. ( )

Thanks to Random House & NetGalley for a digital advance reader's copy. All comments and opinions are my own.

I loved this beautifully written and well-researched story of two 21-year-old sisters at the outbreak of World War I. Identical twins Peggy and Maude have worked since they were 12 years old as bindery girls at Oxford University’s Clarendon Press. They live on the Oxford canal in a book-filled narrowboat named Calliope, now alone since their mother died about four years ago.

Despite Peggy’s improbable desire to study at Somerville College and become a writer, she feels she can’t leave her sister Maude, who is on the spectrum with autism-like issues. And without a scholarship there is no way Peggy would be able to attend anyway. Every day they work at folding, gathering, and sewing the pages of books that they are forbidden to read: “Your job is to bind the books, not read them.” The novel is told by Peggy, who says, “I want to write the books. I want my ideas to be printed, I want my experience to count. I want to share something.”

In addition to the description of working in the bindery, the author does an excellent job of describing the women’s suffragette movement, the inequalities and limitations women face, as well as the cultural changes taking place due to the Great War, and the repercussions of the Spanish Flu.

A few of the characters recur from “The Dictionary of Lost Words,” Pip Williams’ earlier historical novel that I also rated 5 stars. Both books feature the bindery, highlight young women who love words and books, and who have a future of great potential but are held back by the culture of the time and their place in society.

It was easy to become involved with the characters’ lives and the history of the period. I was sorry when the novel ended. I highly recommend this “immersive and compelling tale.” ( )
