"Thief of Spring" by Katherine Macdonald (Book Review)

Updated: Oct 23, 2021

Genre: Fantasy Romance/Mythology Retelling

Book Description:

The Greek Gods are real.

But they aren’t gods.

They’re faeries.

When 17-year-old Persephone accidentally stumbles upon a revel, she’s chosen as a sacrifice, but is saved from this fate when the Lord of the Underworld tricks her into becoming his companion for seven months instead. Sephy is taken to his dark palace under the earth, but the Lord of Night isn’t exactly what she expected him to be…

Review: I should start off by saying that I binge read this within 24 hours. My house is a mess, I didn’t accomplish anything I set out to do, and I might have eaten cereal for dinner. So, in case it’s not clear yet, I am most definitely a fan.

The writing was beautiful and engaging, the descriptions just enough to paint a picture without burying you in details. Some of the plot twists had enough hints to to make you suspect, just so you would be blindsided by the ones you didn’t. The characters and romance? *chef’s kiss*

My only regret is not pacing myself, because I will be sitting on the edge of my seat until the sequel is released!
