I enjoyed this rich world. I felt like I was there seeing the lure with my own eyes. I loved the characters, the writing, and the setting. The writing style was a little hard to follow at first but I took off with it quickly and it was just so rich and lovely that I came to love it so much. It's very flowing and different which I really appreciated. It's nice to have something different for a change.

So this book is really a Hades and Persephone myth retelling but Indian lure and that just pulled me in. I knew I had to read it. That sold me on it alone. I'm a sucker for the Hades and Persephone myth and as many Bollywood movies as I watch... yeah I knew this book would be mine.

It didn't let me down, it was fun and never a dull moment, the world was fleshed out wonderfully, the characters felt real, and the can I again say how much I loved the lure? Because I just did.

My biggest problem with this book was how predicable it was. There was seriously nothing that happened that surprised me. I knew every twist and turn, I even found myself skipping ahead just because I knew what was going to happen and found no reason to read it. So while I loved everything else about this book, the plot was just too easy to guess.

Another thing I disliked about this book was how Amar didn't just tell Maya what was going on. This book whole book would never existed if he's just told her. So that made the plot really weak to me.

Overall, I still recommend this book just for the lure alone. It's great.
