    This did have hades and Persephone vibe which initially appealed but it wasn?t really my thing. There was nothing wrong with the writing itself but this was just Ok for me really and at times was a tad tedious. Luella is the human queen a tool to keep the seasons turning be...

    Loved this charming, sexy, magical creative-retelling of the Hades/Persephone myth. Internet friends have been prodding me for months to read Elise Kova books and I'm so glad I gave in an ordered this little escapist gem (a standalone fantasy romance that was such a delightful, br...

    Rating: 2.5 stars This most definitely did not live up to my expectations. If you're looking for a relatively simple standalone fantasy novel then this will probably work better for you than it did for me. But I spent majority of this book disappointed over the massive amount o...

    Oh my GOD was this good! Not that I'm surprised--Elise Kova can't write a bad book. This has a Hades and Persephone feel to it, but it's not a retelling--and the world Elise has created! I seriously hope there are more books to explore the rest of it! SO GOOD!! *** ...

    Thank you so much to the author for sending me an ARC! This book was just pure fun. It has all of the tropes I love, with Hades & Persephone vibes, and even a hint of Beauty and the Beast. The world was fascinating, and I'm really excited to see more of it in later book...

    Stealing this review space to add a note or two about the book... This book was a passion project for me. It was my first book back writing again after being near burn-out. And I started drafting it at the beginning of quarantine in 2020. I wanted to write a world that I could escap...

    Is it me? Should I stop reading fantasy YA? What is with this insipid trend that may or may not have started with the ACOTAR series? There is this whole stack of books that are playing the Persephone card by using fae folklore. I would not mind this trend at all if it wouldn`t be ...

    i really loved the characters and the world. i found so many quotes that i liked and i thought the magic system was pretty as well. there wasn?t much of a plot though, so naturally i was bored. maybe one day when i reread it i?ll enjoy it more. ...

    four stars ? this was everything i hoped it would be ? describing it as ?beauty and the beast? meets ?hades and persephone? hits the nail on the head; i definitely got vibes for both throughout this novel. i absolutely adored luella and her botanical powers. i?m so glad i...

    There?s a reason why they call Holly Black the Queen of Faerie. I have yet to find something that comes even close to Holly Black?s faeries, especially as in her Folk of the Air series. A Deal with the Elf King is a light fluffy romance trying to be fantasy, and not even trying ...

    It was an ok read. I was expecting to love it but it fell flat for me. I just didn?t feel the chemistry between Eldas and Luella and don?t truly believe they are soulmates. Also this book kinda dragged for me so I skimmed through some parts that were repetitive and a little boring....

    I was really torn between a 3 and 4-star review so I'm going to go with a 3.5 Because this is a standalone, it didn't feel as "epic" as most high fantasy novels. There wasn't a "big bad guy" and there wasn't a crazy plot twist/cliffhanger at t...

    Well? I was expecting more from this book, but at the same time, I was ready to be a little disappointed because of all the 3 stars reviews. ?Some people can never be hidden; they are meant to be seen.? The plot is quite straightforward and predictable. Eldas is the new ...

    A Deal with the Elf King ???????? This book was so fun to read, and I am so sad its over. The world building intrigued me, and the slow-burn romance is everything I wanted! I can't say no to the married trope and the line; "There's only one bed"....
