Preview — Hades by Larissa Ione
Hades is a novella and part of Larissa Ione’s fantastic Demonica/Lords of Deliverance Series and I was really looking forward to the blue mohawked badass and jailor of Sheoul’s story.
I was a bit disappointed….perhaps it had something to do with this being a novella because the story felt somewhat rushed and I just didn’t feel connected to the two main characters.
Hades didn’t sparkle to me!! He dawdled around Cat aka Cataclysm, fallen angel because she was in cahoots with the wicked ange ...more
As a mad fan of all things Demonica, I have been so excited for this novella. I absolutely adore Hades – perennially shirtless, blue-mohawked, sarcastic and arrogant keeper of souls and jailer of the Underworld. He has popped up in a number of books throughout the series, and I was thrilled when we found out he was getting his own story.
Cataclysm (Cat) was an angel, but unwittingly joined Team Bad during all that went down in the last couple of books in the series. Stripped o ...more
ARC was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I never thought that someone can actually make me like or even have sympathy for Hades, I mean the guy is called the Lord of the Dead amongst other not so nice things.
Cataclysm aka Cat was just recently kicked out of Heaven, now a fallen angel she works for Azagoth in Sheoul-gra (hell). Cat is trying to earn her way back to heaven. Though all she can manage to do at this point is make a mess at Azagoth ...more
Azagoth, for his personal reasons, is making Hades’ life a torment every day. You see Hades made a huge mistake when he was younger and Azagoth has not forgiven him ever since.
Cataclysm (Cat for friends) is another fallen agent that has joint Hell’s personnel. She really likes Hades but he does not give her a chance to ...more
I think there was too much going on for such a short novella that neither the romance nor the plot were really developed. They didn't really spend enough time together for me to believe they went from lust to love. There was a lot of telling and not a lot of showing when it came to the plot and the resolution felt anti-climactic.
I think it's still worth a read if ...more
Hades is the latest installment of Demonica series (that I love so much) and a final-for-now story that happen in the complicated yet fascinating Demonica worlds. Follow directly after the end of Revenant and some characters are already introduced from novella Azagoth, Hades is a story about Hades (of course!) and Cataclysm. Cat is a fallen angel that first introduced in Azagoth as his housekeeper and as for Hades, reader know him from Rogue Rider (or Lethal Rider, I don't remember). The ...more
Anyway, I was really excited to get to spend some time with Hades and I loved Larissa Ione's take o ...more
I’ll admit I had fallen behind with the Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series. I haven’t read the last couple of books, life had gotten crazy and with the amount of books I read in a month I know I am behind on so many of my older favorite series. Even with being behind, I was able dive right back in and completely be devoured by this series. It was like I never left and I am going to be going back and re reading all the books because I ...more
Thank you, t ...more
I love the accident prone angel heroine. Hades is great. Their romance could use more time to be as a couple but the falling in love was good. The best moment in the novella has to do with regret and forgivenss outside the romance. It is tender, true and wonderful.

A fallen angel with a mean streak and a mohawk, Hades has spent thousands of years serving as Jailor of the Underworld. The souls he guards are as evil as they come, but few dare to cross him. All of that changes when a sexy fallen angel infiltrat...more
Oh how I’ve missed being in the Demonica world. With just the right amount of humor and snark, Larissa Ione managed to make me both happy and sad with HADES. Why? Happy because it just felt nice to read a paranormal with a flair of what I used to love in my reading. And sad because I just miss it! I miss this genre done in this way. I miss Larissa Ione’s writing style. And I miss this world!
Hades is a typical hero for Ms. Ione. He should be all bad but he’s actually got a sweet side, and a play ...more
Azagoth'un yardımcısı Hades ve işlediği bir suçtan dolayı düşen melek cat'in hikayesi. Açıkçası ben oldukça eğlendim okurken. Hades oldukça renkli ama bir o kadar karanlık bir karakter. Saçları mavi mohavk, üzerine renkli yanar dönerli pantalon dışında birşey giymiyor. oldukça seksi ve çok komik bir espiri anlayışı var. ama bir o kadarda acımasız ve karmaşık. kendi içinde yapayalnız bir adam. Cat ise oldukça meraklı bir tip . herşeye burnunu sokan , ...more
Intrigued about Zubahall now. When do we get his story, Larissa? :)
Okay with my mini-rant over, its no secret that I liked that blue haired bastard Hades from the Lords of Deliverance series but after finding out he has a softer side in this book, I liked him even more. Coupled with his backstory and all that Azagoth has made him ...more

Hades was a great read. Fans of the Demonica universe will love being back in that world and love meeting Cat and getting to know Hades better. The novella gives you so much with backstory as well as thrusting you in to Cat and Hades' crazy affair.
I enjoyed reading about Cat. Hehehe...She was such a klutz, but she definitely had a fiery personality that is refreshing. And then Hades?? OMG...a blue mohawk that adorns his gorgeous body??
I totally understood why Cat was comple ...more
