ARC Review: Dungeon of Hades (Furious Legacy #2) by Meadoe Hora

Dungeon of Hades (Furious Legacy #2) by Meadoe Hora
Rating: 4 Stars
Release Date: November 30, 2021
Format: eARC (Book Sirens)

Dungeon of Hades is the sequel to Curse of the Furies and it packs just as much of a punch as the first book. Cass and Erin, our main characters, must venture into the deepest part of the Underworld to rescue the legendary Furies from their prison. Can they rescue the Furies (who just happen to be their Mom and Aunts) and stop Apollo's plans, all the while staying alive? 

I enjoyed how the storyline was driven not only by the characters out of Greek Mythology but by the stories themselves. The story of the Dragon's teeth is one of my favorites, and it makes an appearance in this book. Other stories from Greek Mythology make an appearance too, but you’ll have to read the book to find out which ones. 

One of my favorite parts of the first book was seeing the Furies (who are normally depicted as vengeful figures) in maternal roles, and that grew in Dungeon of Hades. We finally see Alecto, and her relationship with her children is quite strained. Alecto didn’t seem to know how to handle the fact that her sisters have a better relationship with her daughter (and her son) than she does, so I’m crossing my fingers and toes and hoping that they are able to repair their relationship with time. 

Overall, Dungeon of Hades is another awesome installment in the Furious Legacy series. The ending is a total cliffhanger - hoping that readers won’t have to wait too long for the next installment. I’m eager to see what’s next for the twins and how their eventual confrontation with Apollo plays out.   

Thank you to the author and Book Sirens for my gifted copy of this book; I appreciate the opportunity to read and review Dungeon of Hades immensely. All opinions expressed in the review are my own and not influenced in any way.
