The summary says that a famous pop singer, Orpheus, will be coming to MOA. Then he asks Persephone to help him bring his long-lost love back from the dead (per the myth), and Persephone is hesitant. She knows Hades will hate it, but eventually agrees to help...

I have a bad feeling about this book. In the original story, Orpheus's wife dies. So he goes down to the underworld to convince Hades to bring her back to life. After charming Hades with his singing. Hades agrees, but on one condition. He must not look back until he is out of the underworld. Now I know that he looks back. But I'm not sure what happens after that.

In the original myth, he loses his wife forever. Then I think he joins the Argonauts? Not sure about that, but anyways. In this book, I think that he's kind of like a moodier and nicer(ish) version of Orion.

That would be nice, I don't want him to be anything like Orion. I think I know why none of the godboys like him. Because he's stealing the girls attention! I bet that they with spent all of there time going gaga over Orpheus!

Yeah, he's like....imagine Justin Bieber (or any other famous male singer) coming to a school. The girls would fall all over him, and the guys would hate him.

Tell me about it! But this series isn't as bad as the Heroes of Olympic series. Which only comes out once a year. While Goddess Girls has 3 books coming out this year.

True. Fine, this author doesn't hate us. But R.R. does! And back to the topic at hand, I don't like it how late they are, but I can understand it. Writing an amazing book takes time!

I hope Persephone does not fall in love with Orpheus

I don't think so...she's too obsessed with Hades. But judging by the description, she might be a bit starstruck. Kind of like with Artemis and Orion.

I think all the girls will be a bit starstruck for a while. I'm just hope that he's nice and not stuck up!

Well, he's asking a girl to break the laws of the world for him...that requires a bit of an ego.
