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.
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.

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. ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
I was hooked from the first chapter and am already impatiently waiting for the next one! Told from alternating view of Chrys and Huntley the life and story of Chrys and how she deals with life is told. Trying to deal with her cheating Mom who throws the affairs in her face, her crush on a friend, and well being the daughter of Hades. When all she wants to see is earth and life in a typical day up the ...more
Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He's afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.
Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that ...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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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?
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.

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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
