A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair Book Summary

From bestselling author Scarlett St. Clair comes a dark and enthralling reimagining of the Hades and Persephone Greek myth.

"Let me worship you," he said.

She remembered the words she had whispered to him in the back of the limo after La Rose. "You will worship me, and I won't even have to order you." His request felt sinful and devious, and she reveled in it.

She answered, "Yes."

Persephone is the Goddess of Spring in title only. Since she was a little girl, flowers have only shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hoped to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist. All of that changes when she sits down in a forbidden nightclub to play a hand of cards with a hypnotic and mysterious stranger.

Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible. But nothing has ever intrigued him as much as the goddess offering him a bargain he can't resist.

After her encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead, and his terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever. The bet does more than expose Persephone's failure as a goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead grows—a love that is both captivating and forbidden.

A Touch of Darkness (Scarlett St. Clair) Book Reviews

Nice idea but not good writingI liked the idea behind the story but it goes too fast and the characters have shallow backgrounds. i feel like i didn’t really know anything about persephone and hades since they were kind of just thrown together. i forced myself to keep reading despite the childish writing and dialogue but it’s just not worth it to me..Score: 2/5

Finished in 3 DaysI’m not an average book reader so when I realized I finished this book in three days it amazed me! Although, like someone else mentions it does have some Wattpad fan fiction elements in it but other than that it was pretty good! The characters made me feel certain emotions towards them, which is always a good sign for me. Also, it’s very very “spicy” 7.5/10 on spice meter for me 🌶.Score: 4/5

Amazing!Absolutely fantastic! Couldn’t put it down..Score: 5/5

Worth the read!Sexy, Dark, Fun and a constant page turner! Plus the banter between everyone is wonderful and funny at times. I couldn’t put it down, I finished it in only 3 days because I had to see what happened next! About to go read A Game Of Fate which is the order the Author suggests to read them in. Absolutely obsessed!.Score: 5/5


Can’t read the whole bookThe first chapter was good but for some reason that’s all the further I can get. I can’t ready anymore if the book last that for some reason. I only paid like $3 for it but it doesn’t have an option to buy anything else except for the audio book and unfortunately I’m not a big fan of audio books. Will have to look on Amazon for the book unless someone knows how to help me finish the rest on here..Score: 3/5

Don't MisunderstandThis book is so amazing!! I had my own preconceptions coming in but quickly found myself in love with the characters, the plot, and the world. Such a great read and very happy I gave this series a chance (I don't usually read romance or much fantasy). Very excited to start the 2nd book! 💞😭.Score: 5/5

A great read, could not put it down!I had been contemplating on getting this book for a while now and honestly I AM SO GLAD I DID. It was a very fun and easy read. I absolutely fell in love with the story and can’t wait to read more!! I love this author and her work! Also, if you’re into romantic, yet 🌶 spicy stories, consider reading this one🥵❤️.Score: 5/5

Loved itLove the steamy romance parts ! I’ve read loves stories about aliens , vampires ,regular people but not modern day Greek gods - it was a fun twist ! I liked the story line and progression , character development - I guess the part that prevented my total love of this was the hesitation / self doubt from main character - it gets repetitive when the main female lead just doubts herself , is unsure , lacks confidence etc - she does find her way toward the end of the book but just my preference for a bolder female lead ..Score: 4/5

Great read…I truly enjoyed reading this book. I have an interest in Greek Mythology and when you add romance, the result is awesome. Looking forward to reading other books in this series, especially from Hades point of view. I would definitely recommend this book for others..Score: 4/5

Good BookHonestly the book was like reading a wattpad story it had its moments that made you cringe and moments that made you want more. Overall, I really enjoyed the book and may just read the whole series..Score: 4/5

Not great but not terribleThe storytelling got bogged down a bit in dull narrative when we had to follow Persephone around college. Also I had trouble buying her as an intrepid investigative reporter..Score: 3/5

Ok plot, nice spice, terrible proof readingI was so distracted by all the errors in proof reading and wrong words or grammar that it was hard to enjoy this book..Score: 3/5

SO SO SO GOODThis retelling of Hades & Persephone is one of the best I’ve ever read. I read this entire book in a day and loved every page. I cannot wait to read the next 2 books! St. Clair perfectly weaves a story of romance, fate, Greek myth, and forbidden love. It’s beautiful and I highly recommend!.Score: 5/5

AmazingLorddddddddddsssss 😮‍💨😮‍💨 This book was so good i read it straight through in 4 days ! Couldn’t put it down.Score: 5/5

Couldn’t put this one down!Such a great read that I finished in a day! This modern day telling of Hades and Persephone was everything and kept me wanting more. Touch of Darkness is a spicy novel WITH a storyline, which made this the perfect read! I haven’t decided if I’ll continue with this series because the reviews for the second book are BAD and most say Persephone’s character seems to worsen in a juvenile way. This book was great though! Definitely recommend!.Score: 5/5
