THE REVIEW

Why this book?
This seemed like a book for me

What I thought



Chrys is the daughter of Hades and Persephone who has to be hidden from the other gods because of her power. There’s not much to say, this book was ok nothing special. The characters were likable enough just not compelling. It did have a good premise though and I did like the mythology aspects. Sorry that’s all I got to say.

I would like to thank Victory Editing & Dani Hoots for my copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Ok, so I'm struggling with myself because I don't know if I want to give the book 3 or 4 stars. It has everything I love in it but at some parts, I found it a bit choppy and over explained... like the poker game, yet I still read it in a few hours and found myself wanting to find out more, because of this I will settle on 3.5.

Chrys is the daughter of Hades, Greek God of the dead

I received this E-ARC via Victory Editing and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I had heard about this book through some friends on GR. It sounded like a light fantasy which I enjoy so I requested it. Unfortunately I did not enjoy it.

The book begins with Chrys and her father Hades. Chrys has been told by her father that she needs to sit and watch him judge people. To see which parts of the underworld said people will go to.

One of my favourite themes to read about is Greek Mythology and renditions of famous stories , one of them is the tale of Hades and Persephone. In Endangered we discover that the pair had a daughter named Chrysanthemum aka Chrys and she has been living in the Underworld with her dad Hades and learning the family business. She has also been given strict instructions that she isn't allowed to wander outside of the underworld realm as nobody knows she exists as Zeus believes that Hades is sterile a ...more

this is a snarky fun hoot of a book. I feel for chrys and Huntley to some extent. the one I feel for the most and never thought I would say this is Hades. Yes I feel really bad for Hades. And again never thought I would say this he is totally misunderstood, mistreated and deserves a hug. Hades in this story is so wronged by his brothers particularly Zeus and I love the love he has for his daughter who he protects with everything he is.

Well ... this book took me by surprise, I did not think I would go to like much , but it did ,so I'm very pleased with it.


Some time ago I was looking forward to read something about mythology, since one of my favorite series ("the goddess test") is of the same genre. I found similarities between the books but Endangered shows be super original although both try to Hades as one of the main characters. So if you liked "The Goddess Test

Loved the story. Not a big fan of some of the language. I don't feel it's necessary to drop the f bomb to get a point across. I'm also not a fan of the Persephone of this story. Hades and Persephone has always been one of my favorite stories of Greek mythology. I always thought Hades got a bad rap. He and Apollo are my favorite Olympians.
Chrys, daughter of Hades, is a wonderful character. She's a normal teenager who just wants to explore. The fact that she's a goddess and stronger than just abou

Wow! This was one amazingly kickA book! The writing was just phenomenally excellent! The storyline was incredibly unique and had me completely enthralled from beginning to end! I'm a huge fan of mythology, so how the author interweaves classic myths into this modernized urban fantasy was flawlessly done. The characters were very well developed and complex with palpable emotions and they felt like actual real people. The details the author put into everything were just amazing and gave me wonderf ...more

Chrys has been locked away hidden from the world. She is a secret her father intends to keep. If anyone were to find out about her existence, there could be hell to pay, especially since her father is Hades, god of the underworld. But, the truth is that Chrys was never suppose to be born. Hades and Persephone were never supposed to be able to have children. Zeus made sure of it, and would destroy her if he were to ever discover her. So, Hades does the only thing he knows that will protect his be ...more

Endangered is a cute, funny book that readers will love.

It's about Hades' and Persephone's teenage (in goddess age, she's real been alive thousands of years) daughter Chrys and her best friend/tutor/crush Henley. Chrys has been hidden in the underworld with her father her whole life, and has always dreamed about seeing the world. When she is finally pushed to the limit, Chrys, Henley, and thei

REVIEW BY BETH

Endangered is the first in the Daughter of Hades series and it’s a fantastic way to get introduced to a fun and energetic cast of characters who Hoots definitely has big plans for. My first impressions of this book were that it reminded me a little of the Disney movie Hercules, in a good way obviously!

Retelling traditional Greek myths for a modern teen audience isn’t a new idea but it’s done in an inspired way in this book. Chrys is a fantastic character, typical teen in many ways

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion.

I do not know if I should rate it 3or 4 ! I really liked this book! I loved the idea of Greek mythology and modern era, and the fact that there will be a fight between the gods is amazing! Chrys, the main character is the daughter of Hades . She is just as any other teen, and her friends too! Both boys love her and are always willing to do anything to protect her, but suddenly she wants

Interesting story

Endangered is the story of Chrys, daughter of Hades. She longs to leave the underworld and explore. She cannot understand why her father refuses to let her. When she decides to sneak out, she finds more danger than she ever imagined. Can she find her way back home? Or will her actions cause a war between the gods?

This review looks better on light up the shining night stars

Note: I was given an eARC in return for an honest review.

I signed up for this tour because the premise seemed pretty cool, it's about Greek myth and I've never read a book centred around Hades. I'll be honest, the synopsis and book cover doesn't do the book justice, because I was initially hesitant to pick it up well in advance as it didn't seem really inviting. I finally went ahead because this tour was looming up on me. I'm really gl

I am so happy to be back with my beloved Greek gods and especially Hades. Hades has always been one of my favorites with Ares god of war. Ok, I will be honest and admit that I do love a few more but I always thought that the story of Hades and Persephone was totally cute (Plus it is a lovely explanation on why we have the different seasons).

In this baby, Hades and Persephone have been married for eons and they have a daughter Chrys that no one especially Zeus knows about. Chrys has been living i

I love anything to do with Greek mythology so I was intrigued by this book about the daughter of Hades. Chrys is the secret daughter of Hades, who has been kept hidden all her life as she should never have been born. She decides to sneak out of the Underworld to find out exactly what it is that her mother, Persephone, loves so much about Earth and eventually we find out exactly why it is that she has been kept hidden for so long. I really enjoyed this and look forward to the second book in the s ...more

This was a DNF at 24% for me, even though I've rated it 3 stars.

I would say the series is aimed at YOUNG YA readers and so, missed the mark for me. I think it would be a wonderful series for young readers, just not for me. Plus I was constantly flipping between the book and Google for info on the mentioned Greek mythological characters.

I was so excited to read this, but it fell flat. The best way I can describe this book is that it's basically a Greek Mythology soap opera. With that being said though, this book was entertaining and a really fast read. Some parts were really predictable, but still a fun read.

This book had me wanting to read it from the start, with its beautiful cover and brilliant blurb. It really pulled me in and drew me to the story.

I am glad I gave this book a go. It was a fun read, that I finished rather swiftly. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Though I did find some of the story choppy, and the characters took a little too long to develop fully, I really feel that this series is going to come together nicely during the next book. It has a lot of room to

I picked this book up as I love Greek mythology and thought the twist on the usual stories about the Greek gods and goddesses sounded fun! I really enjoyed this one and the links to other known and unknown (to me anyway) Greek characters really kept my interest.

Chrys is the daughter of Hades and Persephone and is kept in the Underworld as a secret from the rest of the Greek parthenon. On one of Persephone's home visits, she makes a statement that shatters Chrys' world. To find out why Persephone

***Disclaimer: I received a copy in exchange for a review.***

The First Five Words/Intro: “Hello and welcome to the Underworld. My name is Chrys, and I am the daughter of Hades. May I take your coat?” Sets the tone for the story but didn’t inspire much confidence. For a goddess who’s never set foot out of the Underworld she’s got a definitively modern style to her. If she’s been alive for so many thousands of years- and was personally mentored by Shakespeare himself- why does she only have contem
