Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.


Neon Gods by Katee Robert
Dark Olympus #1
Expected publication: June 1st 2021 by Sourcebooks Casablanca

Society darling Persephone Dimitriou wants nothing to do with her mother’s ambitions. She’s biding her time until she’s able to leave the ultra-modern city of Olympus and start her doctorate degree. The one thing she never planned on? Her mother ambushing her with an engagement to Zeus—a man with more than a few dead wives in his past. Persephone will do anything to escape that fate…even flee the sparkling upper city and make a devil’s bargain with a man she once believed was a myth.

Hades has spent his life in the shadows, and he has no intention of stepping into the light. Not even for the woman who flees into his territory as if the very hounds of hell are on her heels. But when he finds that Persephone can offer a little slice of the revenge he’s spent his entire life craving? It’s all the excuse he needs to agree to help her—for a price. She’ll be his for the summer, and then he’ll see her safely out of Olympus and away from her mother and Zeus.

Hades and Persephone’s deal might seem simple enough, but they both quickly realize it’s anything but. With every breathless night spent with Hades, Persephone wonders at her ability to leave him behind. And Hades? Now that he has a taste for Persephone, he’s willing to go to war with Olympus itself to keep her…

I loooove a good Hades/Persephone retelling and knowing it’s from Katee Robert is making me even more excited. It will also have the fake relationship and grumpy one + sunshine one tropes. Can it be June yet? ?

  1. I’ve never read this author – but this one has certainly snagged my attention! I am a sucker for a strong Greek myths retelling and this one sounds nicely bouncy and fun…

  2. The cover caught my eye instantly. Love the shading and colors. And that synopsis! The Hades/Persephone premise appeals to me as well. lYou’ve got my attention even more now. I am adding this to my wish list. I hope you enjoy Neon Gods when you read it!
