This is the second book in this series. Just wanted to warn you if you haven’t read Poseidon’s Children yet. I’ll do my best not to spoil it for you.

The story picks up around two years after Colonial Bay and, while some of my favorite characters aren’t in this story, some are.

Carol and Alan are now living in Japan and settling in nicely when someone from Carol’s past comes calling. Kari is a very close friend from back in her college days. She’s asking for their help in finding her father. He

Whenever I write a story, I hope it appeals to people, that the characters will feel real and connect with my readers, and I am so pleased that readers all around the world have fallen in love with Carol, Earl, and the rest of my diverse cast. With Hades’ Disciples, I get the chance to dive more deeply into the mythology introduced in Poseidon’s Children, and the stakes are much higher now. Fans who thrilled at all the action, excitement and twisted weirdness of Book One will not be disappointed ...more

Have you ever read a book that left you thinking that the author must be in on some great universal secret? Have thoughts like this crossed your mind as you sat reeling from page after page of amazing description of things not of our everyday world that are written as if the author had actually seen them in person? They must have experienced the terror themselves. They had to have watched the horror unfold before their very eyes and somehow survived. Could there really be any other explanation f ...more

Wow! Many times the 2nd book in a series is more or less a place holder between the introductory book and the finale. But Hades' Disciples keeps the story moving and builds on book one of the series to a climactic ending that leaves you saying "how long do I have to wait till book #3?) If you are a Sci-Fi or Horror fan, I wholeheartedly recommend this series! You will not be able to put it down! ...more

My thoughts:
West does an amazing job of continuing the story. I love how rich and deep the characters are. I like how this one lets the reader in on the history of the creatures and explains each of the three clans. I will say that this book is better enjoyed after reading book one and this is a wild ride and in the end it will leave you begging for more. I highly recommend this to anyone that loves urban fantasy, Mythology, and fantastical creatures.

My Rating: a BIG ole 5 out of 5

This is a seriously good series that I wish more people knew about. I enjoyed book one which I read ages ago. The only problem I had with reading book two was that some things I had forgotten so reading the two books closer together would have been beneficial. The series continues with mythological and fantasy creatures tied to modern day. We have good guys in a race against time to keep the bad guys from implementing their evil plan. Well written characters that are so fascinating to read about ...more
When I finished reading Michael West's Poseidon's Children, I wondered where the author would take these characters next. Hades' Disciples takes my favorite characters from the first book, and the reader, on a fast-paced journey across the country and around the globe, giving us more information about the strange creatures who live all around us and their plot to bring the ancient gods back to Earth. Along the way, we are introduced to a few new characters who quickly gain a hold in our hearts, ...more

I love the universe that Michael West has created with the Legacy, and Harmony, Indiana, it's kinda a scary place to live in but everyone's trying to survive and keep their species going. Hades' Disciples was able to create characters that we care for even the people on the wrong side. It's able to show both sides struggles and makes you care, including about characters in previous books. I can't wait for Zeus' Warriors, and look forward to more adventures of the characters in the book. ...more

WOW!! Don't know if I can wait till 2015 for the next book!! Lots of great action and new characters. Has some sex scenes, so I would not recommend to YA. Writing kept me on my toes! Happy Reading :) ...more

Masterful storytelling!

West has succeeded in crafting an intense tale that, dare I say it - has surpassed the already amazing first entry of this series!!! I can’t wait to dive in to the next book!

Decent entry in the series, but it feels unfinished.

A good start, but there was almost no climax to the ideas introduced. The world is unchanged at the end of the book, with only minor adjustments in the status of the characters.
