ANOTHER FAVE OF 2020! This is the last book for Hades and Persephone and I'm so sad it's over!

Midnight Kingdom is the fast-paced and exciting conclusion to the King of Shadows trilogy. Amelia Wilde's spin on a classic Greek mythology tale is dark and sensual and edgy.

" I want all your summers Persephone. Every fall and winter and spring until you don't have any more left to give."

Hades and Persephone have changed so much since they first clashed into each other, and I really like where the author took them as a couple. They learned to work towards a common goal together when their relat

This is the third and final piece of Hades and Persephone epic story. You do need to read all these books and in order to obtain the complete story. The journey that these two have been on has been quite the roller coaster ride of intense emotions, drama, excitement, suspense, hot passion darkness and jaw-dropping twists. I loved these two so much! They totally stole my heart. I'm so to say goodbye to this couple but I eagerly look forward to more books set in this world. This is my forthright, ...more

Midnight King is the finale book of The King of Shadows series, This is not standalone.

I have been counting down to the release of this book to see what happens. I wanted to take my time reading , to truly enjoy the end of a great series.

Hades and Persephone have changed so much since book one, They both have learned to love, grow , trust and work with each other. I was once again sucked in from page one in his series, What a journey these two have had. Dark, twisted, beautiful, challenging

This is the most intense, the most thrilling the most emotional, the most breathtaking story in this series. WOW!
I didn’t think that Ms. Wilde could outdo herself one more time, but she did.
Secrets are unlocked, loose threads are tied and feelings are revealed …
Hades and Persephone's story comes to a fulminant conclusion. It's heartbreaking and at the same time enchanting to see Persephone grow from a shy girl to a confident woman and it's even more exciting to see Hades become a tiny bit more o
Sissy's Romance Book Review
MIDNIGHT KINGDOM by Amelia Wilde is book three in the King of Shadows Series. This continues the story of Persephone and Luther Hades so you really should read the previous books 'King of Shadows' and 'Summer Queen' before starting this one. This book starts where we left off where we see Persephone and Hades both fighting together. They both have grown through out this series and with this book we see their full potential together. Hades is still the strong dangerous man we learned to love but ...more

It’s been two days since I finished Midnight Kingdom by Amelia, and every where I turn or at any mention Hades, I’m instantly transported back to this trilogy. I wasn’t even 10% in and I could already feel my stomach in knots and my heart racing! Reminding myself that I needed to slow down, and not fly through it, but did I listen? NO! How dumb was I!

This series will always hold a special place in my heart. A perfect combination of the dark, intense vibe of Hades with the bright, all-encompassi

I'm going to start out this review by saying that Midnight Kingdom is the third & final book in the King of Shadows trilogy, which means that you HAVE TO READ IN ORDER, King of Shadows (Book 1) & Summer Queen (Book 2) FIRST! And since it's a crazy story based on mythology, and there are the previous two books out, I'm not giving any important details from the story. I will say that it's fast paced, exciting, and kept my heart rate up cover to cover. I'll also say that Hades & Persephone definite ...more

So sad to see Hades and Persephone’s story come to an end, but I can’t wait to see what’s next to come. These two have been through the mud and coming out the other side together, stronger than ever. Persephone is strong willed, smart and a perfect match for Hades and with her by his side he can conquer anything. Their story has suspense, passion, drama and you will tear through the pages wanting to know how it all ends. Great read, loved it and patiently waiting for what’s next to come. I recei ...more

Midnight Kingdom by Amelia Wilde brings the steamy, dark, intense and thrilling conclusion to an epic series. Hades and Persephone's mesmerising love story gave me all kinds of feelings!

Persephone and Hades are standing on the precipice. Their relationship started as hunter and prey. And gradually it became a soul deep connection. But his evil brother Zeus is threatening to topple his mountain kingdom with diamond mines. Can they beat the monster? Will Hades' weakness be a problem? Will Persepho

The stunning conclusion to one of the best series of the year. I loved everything about Hades and Persephone. Their story while messy and complicated at the beginning turned into a swoon worthy romance, where they learned to love and fight for each other. I could not read it fast enough!!

Midnight Kingdom by Amelia Wilde is the final book in the King of Shadows trilogy. This picks up right where Summer Queen left off. I don't want to say too much so I don't spoil anything, but Persephone and Hades have to work to protect the mountain from attacks in this final book. Persephone and Hades' relationship was really great in this one. They've definitely grown since King of Shadows, and I liked seeing a more vulnerable Hades. I loved seeing Persephone grow as well. There was a lot of s ...more

Persephone and Hades’ story has come to an end. I was curious to see if their story would end the way the myth is, but I was pleasantly surprised. Amelia Wilde wrote their story based on the myth while changing things up to make it new!

The mountain is under siege. Hades has to find a way to keep everyone and especially Persephone safe. He’s ready to go in extreme lengths and form unpleasant alliances to make it happen. The book is all about them fending off enemies and trying to stay to

Hit this one on the head! Wow! I am reeling from this conclusion to the trilogy.
Hades and Persephone gave me chills, kept me on edge and had me rooting for the antihero. They are perfectly imperfect, messed up and still so alluring.
The vivid imagery in this story had me turning pages so fast I almost got a paper cut. (Ok swipe burn? Is that a thing? I’m an ebook reader)
I was so pumped for this book and it was everything I hoped and more, I’m sad to see this end. But now I cannot wait to cont

Wow what an ending going out with a bang. Hades and Persephone went trough the final fight protecting each other and it was the most exciting emotional part of the series as they became stronger and with value of each other.
These two were made for each other the perfect fit of bad and good and very very steamy. I Loved it I'm sad to see the end but look forward to more in this world.

Hades and Persephone go to war for love!

The fantastic conclusion to this amazing retelling of their story.

The war comes to the mountain. Zeus attacks. Poseidon makes an appearance. (Love this take on him! Please, please, please tell me we get a story for him too!)

More backstory...Demeter is one cold mama.

I love this story even more now that we've gotten to the conclusion. No big surprise this is one dysfunctional family, but Hades & Persephone are starting their own HEA. Persephone has given

Midnight Kingdom is the final book in a three book series and it’s just as good as the ones before it. Love all the twist and turns that Hades and Persephone go through and how they fight for each other.

Midnight Kingdom is the epic conclusion of the King of Shadows trilogy. This entire trilogy has been one long exciting and captivating read. I really enjoyed this sensual journey. It was dark and loving, it was twisted and captivating with exceptional character growth. Obviously, the gist of the journey was not new to me, but the author integrated her own brand of magic on this classic Greek mythology, so it had its fair share of unexpected turns. This is one of the best modern day adaptation of ...more

I'm not sure what I was hoping for but it felt like there was something lacking. I can't quite put my finger on it but something was missing for this story for me to give it five stars. I love Hades. He is a complicated guy and I understand why he acts the way he does because of his upbringing. But that doesn't mean that Persephone should just sit back and take it. Persephone irritated me with her actions and acted a little bit like a spoiled brat considering what she just survived in the previo ...more

Midnight Kingdom (King of Shadows #3) by Amelia Wilde is the final book in Hades and Persephone's story. The story picks up where book 2 left off. Hades and Zeus end up in a fight. Some how Hades lives to fight another day and brings in his brother Poseidon to help him keep the mine safe. Of course Poseidon has a strange price for his services. In this story we get some back story to their lives when they were younger. I feel like this book was more of a set up for other books to come about Hade ...more

Midnight Kingdom is the 3rd and final novel in the King of Shadows trilogy. The story was dark and intense, fast-paced and action packed and held my interest until the end. The story continues where the 2nd book left off and we continue along this wild ride with these two characters. I loved the partnership between Hades and Persephone in this book. Both characters have grown so much since the first book. The story was filled with suspense, drama, intense emotions, hott steamy scenes and twists ...more

The love story of Hades and Persephone that began under the most unlikely of circumstances continues as they must face another challenge and they realize that the true strength they have is each other. What started as a relationship where Hades held all the power has morphed into a beautiful partnership as with her he shows a sensitive side that remains well hidden while with Hades support Persephone emerges as a force to be reckoned with.

This was an outstanding finale for Hades and Persephone’s story. This starts out right where Summer Queen ended. You need to read King of Shadows and Summer Queen before reading Midnight Kingdom. We have watched these two fall in love with each other, but they will have to fight all the forces coming at them to win. This is filled with drama, suspense, intense moments (physical and emotional), and twists and turns. Hades may be a grade a a******, but Persephone loves that about him. These two ar ...more

This book is the third in a series following Hades (who is the ultimate not nice alpha who left me swooning) and Persephone. This book brought everything together and took the reader on the most amazing journey of seeing truly how Persephone grew up yet she was still very submissive to her alpha Hades. Hades actually develops a strong soft side for his love. The dynamics between the siblings is off the charts and I really hope that we will get stories about the siblings along the way as well.

Hades and Persephone have come a long way since they first met and became a couple. Now they are more equal partners facing their problems. Hades brother is trying to undermine him and take his kingdom. Can the couple overcome all the twists and turns in this story? A good read and conclusion to the trilogy.

I love Amelia Wilde’s version of Hades, he ticks all of my boxes. Persephone grew from naive girl at the start of the series to a strong and exquisite queen deserving of a spectacular diamond encrusted tiara in Midnight Kingdom.
I devoured this sensual, intense and thrilling romantic trilogy in a day and a half and now will wait impatiently for Zues’s story to be completed.

Hades and Persephone are back to wrap up their story. They are a scorching hot couple who will do anything for each other. A new character is added to bring in even more action. Zeus and Demeter are once again creating drama. All that drama closes for one couple only to spotlight another!
