      Anyone who knows me, knows my OTP are Hades and Persephone. A good friend highly recommended this as one of her favorite books on Greek mythology. If there's one thing I can't resist, it's Greek mythology. As much as it pains me to give this book this rating, I'm afraid it's the only one I can honestly give. I can't think of anything I liked. The MC was very dull and I couldn't bring myself to care for her. The dialogue and the plot made little sense. I am sure there are people out there who lov [...]

      I loved the characterizations in this book as well as the world building, but the sheer amount of sex scenes was a detractor for me. Once I started skimming them, I enjoyed the book a lot more. I do plan to finish the duology at some point, but I'm in no hurry right now. I'll be doing a full review on my channel!

      RECIEIVER OF MANY IS GETTING PUBLISHED!! YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I have been waiting for this day-You know when you read a fanfic and you just know that it's going places? Yeah, this is it. This is the one I felt in my heart of hearts was gonna get published. I simply can not wait for this to come out in full. I will simply die.

      I read this story when it was still ongoing and every chapter kept me hooked and wanting to read more. It could be said that for a time, it was the only reason I was able to wake up early to go to work on wednesdays.I love the way the story is told, the descriptions are clear and the characters makes you love them or hate them depending on their role and the situation. In conclusion, and keeping in mind that I've been a fan of that especific pair for years, I consider Receiver of Many one of the [...]

      Where is this sequel? Why do I not have it in my Kindle as we speak?! I am a big fan of the Hades/Persephone stories from Greek Mythology and I'm always on the prowl for another version of it. I think that this version may be one of the best. You can tell the author did some heavy duty research and it showed in the writing and plotting. The relationship between Hades and Persephone was so well-written and the ~love scenes were hot, hot, hotttttt. I am reading this sequel as soon as it comes out! [...]

      So what to say about RoM?Other than it was quite possibly one of my favorite stories of the last year, other than that it spurred me into a fantastic Hades/Persephone obsession that has extended to this year (and also extended into all of Greek mythology). Other than that the language and syntax and emotion in this story is both superb and evoking.It's justally, really good. And it's author is an absolute darling. I follow Rachel on tumblr and have as she wrote this, and am so excited she is pub [...]

      I am a sucker for the Greek epics. I can't lie and I won't try to. The story of Persephone and Hades has always been a favorite of mine, probably because I had a feeling it was less of a "kidnap/rape" and more of a forbidden love scenario. Mostly because Persephone knows better than to eat anything from the Underworld and does so anyway. Moving right along, let's get to the meat of the story!I am in love with the way Persephone is characterized here: an unwilling maiden, bound by her mother's ha [...]

    8. Lilly on said:

      I've read the online version of Receiver of Many and even then I was blown away by how amazing the writing was! I will definitely buy this book when it comes out as an ebook and paperback!Receiver of Many is a retelling of The Persephone and Hades myth and oh boy, it is the best I've read in a very long time. The writing is engaging and the characters have a depth to them with flaws and strengths that one can relate to. 10/10 would read again!

    9. Alex ☣ Deranged KittyCat ☣ on said:

      DNF - 50%I can't do it, no matter how hard I try.I'm a sucker for mythology and I enjoy my erotica, but Receiver of Many doesn't do it for me. Not as an adult book, and not for its story. Trigger warning for rape.I know the Greek gods were bastards and they liked to take whomever they wanted, and it still pains me to read about rape. Ok, I get it why Hades had to take Persephone the way he did, but that poor nymph didn't deserve what she got. The scene itself is not very explicit, but it was eno [...]

    10. Kacey on said:

      Followed this from the beginning when it was published online. A must for any fan of Hades and Persephone, or a lover of Greek mythology. The amount of research that went into this piece is astonishing and it's much more than just an erotic romance. Will definitely be purchasing a copy for my bookshelf.

      I have loved you and only you for forty thousand years. And I will love you and only you until the stars are shaken out of the sky.Beautiful, ethereal, and enchanting, Receiver of Many was a lyrical and romantic tale that made my heart ache. Hades and Persephone's timeless love story has always intrigued and captivated me. But there are very few retellings of their story, and the number of well-written retellings even fewer. I never quite found one that accurately portrayed their characters as I [...]

    12. Molly Ringle on said:

      Epic retelling of Persephone's transformation from Kore, innocent maiden of the flowers, to Queen of the Underworld, as true to mythology as it could be while still being a love story between Hades and Persephone. (And a steamy, erotic one at that!) I loved how, like any proper novel, it went in-depth into the psychology of the gods in question (including a Thanatos who was much more devilishly likable than I expected), but also showed the vast scope of the world these larger-than-life character [...]

    13. M.M. Strawberry Reviews on said:

      Wow. Just woe. I have loved the myth of Hades and Persephone for as long as I remember, and this book does not disappoint the very least! The author remains faithful to her source material, while at the same time adding several fantastically creative twists to the myths. I found her version of the Sisyphus myth to be especially brilliant.Normally, I'm not a fan of the version of the Persephone myth which has her being promised to Hades by Zeus (or Poseidon, in the couple of versions where Poseid [...]

    14. Littlefeather on said:

      This is a beautiful story. The detail woven into the mythology and world building is simply exquisite, I was completely enthralled by it. I've read it many times and I cannot wait to purchase it.

    15. Bridget on said:

      This is an amazing book. The detail into the world is enthralling. Even more so because it takes so much from the original mythology that you want to believe this is the real deal. There are so many secondary characters that are just as compelling as the main ones, it feels more like a real world for it. I also find that there is no "bad guy", there are character you wish not to run into again and there are characters whose wants and aspirations conflict with the main characters but everyone has [...]

    16. Theevilspoonoverlord on said:

      Amazing. It's great both if you love Greek myths, and if you just like romantic stories. The characters are great, and very well written. Their interactions feel very real, and fun. You feel sorry for Demeter, and understand her struggle. Hades is both a strong, and weak in a very human way. You can really see him as a real person, not just a character. Persephone has a lovely transformation from innocent girl to powerful Queen in a very fluid way.I really love that this is a story where the fem [...]

    17. Ray Day on said:

      Erotica-romance in a historical setting. Literary allusions, excellent writing, complex plots and subplots, character growth, flawed and deep characters: this is why I am a reader. I read to be challenged and excited by something new and to be confronted with possibilities. 'Receiver of Many' does all of that. Read this book and you too will fall in love with words and books and humanity all over again.

    18. Rosemarie Short on said:

      I've always been a fan of Greek mythology. Receiver of Many brings the mythology to the pages in a very accessible, readable way. The romance is a gateway but this book is about much more than just romance. It boasts a strong cast of supporting characters (both likable and not) as well as a fascinating world to delve into. The two main characters, Persephone and Hades, are a great couple. Whilst I felt that I would like a little more fleshing out of Hades character (at times he felt like a sex-b [...]

      This is such an amazing retelling about the mythology of Hades and Persephone and I'm so excited for it to be published as a novel!! I highly recommend it as a Fall must-read. I can't wait to finally have the novel in my hands!

    20. Stephanie on said:

      This is the most amazing book I've ever had the pleasure to read. I can't wait to pick up my own copy in stores.

    21. Kristin Campbell on said:

      I adored this book! There was not one part of it that left me unsatisfiedWell, except that I have to wait till the next one, but it's so worth it if the next is anything like this one!

    22. Ri on said:

      I read this novel when it was still a fanfiction categorized under "Greek Mythology" on fanfiction. I don't remember too well the specifics, since it was quite a while, but I remember being enthralled by it and being unable to do anything until I finished reading it (as I do when I'm enthralled by anything, really). The writing (though a first draft) was great and the plot definitely kept me drawn in at all times. The characterization and really the expansion on the characters of these millennia [...]

      This is a very masterpiece and I'm very happy for Rachel and for her book. Congratulations !

    24. PJ Taylor on said:

      As someone who has previously read the both books in their entirety on a fan fiction website I can say it was alright. The characters were incredibly out of character with Kore seeming to be more like a simple minded ditzy disney princess then a goddess very Mary Sueish. Hades being a virgin for that long was a bit eye rolling. I felt like I was reading a horrible porno half the time and even the erotic bits were very boring and sort of lacking in true depth. I think if the author would have per [...]

      A glimpse into the ancient world of pagan Greece and its debauched gods and goddesses. This is **EROTICA** but with an actual plot! It centers on the famous abduction story of the Lord of the Underworld and the innocent Kore a.k.a Persephone, daughter of Demeter and Zeus. Fantastically written and well researched telling of the Hades and Persephone love story.Persephone's character progression from maiden Kore to the Queen of the Underworld, Iron Queen, Praxidike and etc was great to read. It wa [...]

      dnf @ chapter 10. i tried to like this, i really did - but the writing could have benefited from more thorough editing, and i wasn't a fan of the characterizations.

    28. Alexandra Nieman on said:

      I really need to break down and buy a physical copy of this bookReciever of Many is one of those rare books that have stuck with me long after I've finished them. I read this book when it was still ongoing on the internet, and there are times even though I read it 2 years ago where I'll be doing something totally unrelated and think "You know what was a good book That Reciever of Many Man that was a good book I need to read that again" So I've decided to bunker down and write a review for this m [...]

      1.75 stars only because there was a lot of interesting stuff other then the actually insipid mary sue female character. The loss of potential just burned me so bad.ok, let me just say I love fanfiction. Not all fan fiction translate to good reading. But for what it's worth, fan fiction is given lots more leeway than published stuff. What this needed, was the benefit of a very good beta or an actual editor.On to the story:Dont get me wrong, I love female empowerment stories. But I hate when the p [...]
