Zephyr is in the Underworld for killing the minor god who killed Zephyr’s sister. Although it is supposed to be impossible to kill a god, Zephyr called on some dark power and did what no other demi-god has been able to do. Now Zephyr is being pursued by both sides of a brewing war between the gods and she just wants to find her sister happy in the afterlife.
Zephyr is a strong character and fun to follow. The world delves into the Greek gods with an interesting take on the demigods. The violence is a gruesome slit throat and a torturous murder. The mature content is just kissing, but I was super annoyed that she was willing to sleep with a guy that she has only kissed twice.
