I liked the creative take on Greek mythology in the first 3 books, but just couldn't get into this sequel.

I didn't mind Aphrodite as a secondary character, but really didn't connect with her as the MC. I also was never huge on the other gods who were more prominent here, like Poseidon. I was mostly waiting for the few scenes when Hades showed up... so it's definitely not worth reading this to see favorite characters from the previous books.

I'd still recommend the first 3 books! But most of the

Kaitlin masterfully weaves each new mythology retelling, and I will continue to read everything she writes. She is a phenomenal author! Aphrodite was a nice addition to the Daughters of Zeus series. It was well-paced, suspenseful, and full of surprises. If you’ve read the other books in the series, absolutely read this one! But I don’t think it’s the kind of book I despe

This is quite a different story with a twist...the Greek gods are attempting to locate missing demigods from a Cruise Line. Aphrodite is the newest (youngest) goddess, and volunteers to find out why they're missing and where they've been taken to. I've always been enthralled by Greek Mythology, so I already knew all the gods and what they represented...but someone not having that knowledge, might spend time playing catch up. Even then, there are a lot of factors about each god and demigod about ...more

I'm a sucker for mythology and this story really sucked me right in. This was my first taste of this author and I'm looking forward to going back to the beginning of this series.

Aphrodite is a fascinating character who in this version is living in the modern world and has her own issues to deal with especially after no longer under Zeus's thumb. When demigods go missing on a cruise ships, Aphrodite is sent to investigate. She will soon realize that there's a sinister plot going on, enemies are n

Oh Gods ! That book was amazing, I wasn't a fan of Aphrodite in the previous books, but here she's a marvellous character. This world, Kaitlin Bevis created is awesome, and everything is connected to Greek mythology so precisely, it's amazing !

I absolutely love Ares, and I hope Aphrodite will choose him over Adonis in the next book, because he's got a huge past, he's just too endearing to me. And I can't stand Adonis, really I can't ^^' I couldn't in the mythology so I can't in any retellings u

This was a fantastic read. This was the best book of the series. I am very happy with this book. It contained all of the excitement that the first two books had. I think Aphrodite became her own in this book and it is very interesting to see. I love how the first three books were about Persephone/Hades relationship. Now, it is time to find out Aphrodite's story. I loved the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the way Kaitlin Bevis knows how to incorporate Greek

Greek mythology has long been my favorite and Kaitlin Bevis made Persephone & Hades my favorite couple with this series. Other series have featured the love story of Ares & Aphrodite so I was excited to continue this series with their story.

It didn't quite have the grip as the other books in the series and Aphrodite simply doesn't work for me as a main character.

While the first three books focused mainly on the Persephone/Hades relationship (and a lovely ride that is, too), this one embarks on new territory by sticking exclusively to the point of view of Aphrodite. It’d be easy to dislike the “Barbie Goddess,” as one character calls her—she’s physically perfect, she’s occasionally clueless, she may often come off as shallow and self-serving…she’s, well, Aphrodite. But I thought Kaitlin Bevis did a marvelous job with the character, showing us her sufferi ...more

**thank you to netgalley for a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
HELL YES.

This is the fourth book in the series and given how many references there are to the history of the characters, I think that I would probably have benefitted from reading the previous books (I’m going to have to go back to them now to make sure they’re as good as this one!).
The general premise of the story is that pantheon of Greek gods are having a reshuffle following the defeat of Zeus and

This was the best book out of the 4!
Aphrodite is definitely one of my favourite Goddesses, and it was nice to know her and find out in this way.
I loved how she "fought" with Adonis and defended herself. Actually I shipped them together, but it was nice to see Ares be the good guy for once, Hallelujah, still I do not like him. lol
It was thrilling, it was nice to see how she grew into this character, and as a Goddess loved everyone(not in that way...)

It's three in the morning when I write this review so excuse me if my thoughts are jumbled. I just finished reading Aphrodite and I wanna get my thoughts down before I forget.
I recently finished rereading the previous three Daughters of Zeus books when I found out there were more. You would not believe my excitement. Add in the fact that I would be getting more info on Aphrodite?! I love Persephone and all but I really did wonder how Aphrodite was dealing with the whole post-Zeus thing. It's kin

I was initially disappointed when I discovered that the fourth book of the Daughters of Zeus series switched from following Persephone to Aphrodite. She wasn't exactly my favorite character in the previous books, but I actually ended up liking her in this one. I understood her more, and that helped. The other gods (Persephone, Hades, Ares, Poseidon, Artemis, Athena, am I missing anyone?) from the other books play a part in this one, too, but the story does follow Aphrodite.

A continuation of the YA series Daughters of Zeus (Book 4) and the first one in which Aphrodite is the MC. A new mystery and many of the wonderful characters from the previous novels, although not enough of Hades. Alas, we finally get to see more of Ares, which kind of makes up for it. A good contemporary interpretation of the love goddess and the god of war. The reader also meets some new mythological characters that are interesting. I look forward to the next one! For fans of YA adaptations.

I will probably write a bit more coherent review later but for now I just want to say that this is a great start for a new series. I was honestly surprised what a complex and sympathetic character Aphrodite became and I am glad she is the heroine of the new trilogy.

After immensely enjoying Ms. Bevis's Persephone trilogy, and how Aphrodite was presented in it, I was eager to start this new story arc. If you've read the Persephone stories, you know what happened, and even after the big bad is dead, there is still plenty to deal with.

Ms. Bevis's take on the gods is not one I've ever seen before. Or demigods, for that matter. She manages to skillfully weave together the modern day world with past myths, I loved Aphrodite's interactions with Adonis and the auth

This was a Netgalley book, which means pre-publication, which means it's not necessarily the final version. When granted the right to read such books, there's usually a note asking you to keep this in mind, to not quote the book or judge the copy too harshly, basically.

This book is written in the same world as the previous 3, but the main character has changed, the story now focuses on Aphrodite. It is a little more grown up than the previous 3, but the story is still good. It actually felt a little shallow, upon reflection. There is a lot of internal dialogue, not too much, but enough that towards the end I felt like skipping parts of chapters. Overall, it was a solid 3 stars, and I'll finish the series.

Once I got into the book (having not read the Persephone books since a romanticism of the rape of Persephone does not interest me) I found it entertaining and Kaitlin manages to grab your attention and keep you hooked page after page. She also explained enough of things that happened prior to make it relatively easy to jump in mid-way through a series which I really appreciate. There were however things I did not like, but are however a matter of preference. I didn't like how Zeus was this terri ...more

I spent my childhood curled up with a book, and a pen. If the ending didn’t agree with me, I rewrote it. Now, I write my own endings, middles, and beginnings for the Daughters of Zeus series, including the best selling novel, Persephone.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and I spent high school and college learning everything I could so that one day I could achieve that goal. I graduated college
