Praise for Lore Olympus

“If eyes could eat, [Lore Olympus] would be a feast. Smythe’s artistic style features bright washes of color and bold, suggestive lines. . . . It’s paced as a soap opera, all drawn-out tensions and long-simmering secrets, and I, for one, am thrilled to be along for the ride.”New York Times Book Review

“It’s easy to see why the internet has fallen in love with Lore Olympus. This dazzling interpretation of the classic Greek myths is as charming as it is provocative, and as witty as it is startlingly romantic. Prepare to be swept away!”—Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles

“With vivid, irresistible art and storytelling that would make even the Muses swoon, this modern myth deftly tackles the darkness of the ancient stories while never losing its brilliant light. I couldn’t devour it fast enough.”—Alexandra Bracken, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Lore

“Sheer bliss. Rachel Smythe is a master storyteller, filling each gorgeously illustrated page with equal parts humor, heart, and joy.”—Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and Abandon series

Lore Olympus is a visual feast! It’s sexy and clever, taking ancient Greek myths and spinning them to be relevant today. I could not put this graphic novel down and cannot wait to see more of Persephone and Hades—and the rest of the Lore Olympus pantheon.”—P. C. Cast, New York Times bestselling author of Spells Trouble and the House of Night series

“Smart, sexy, romantic, and full of heart . . . an unforgettable and startlingly relatable epic that combines addictive storytelling, engaging characters, and a lush, unmistakable art style.”—Kami Garcia, New York Times bestselling author of Teen Titans: Raven and coauthor of Beautiful Creatures

“An inspired, sweet, and thoroughly modern reimagining of Hades and Persephone’s tale. Its cast is memorable, and its central relationship absorbing and spellbinding.”—Aliette de Bodard, award-winning author of Fireheart Tiger

“Rachel Smythe’s Lore Olympus is a stunning reimagining of classical myth. Smythe adapts the story of Persephone and Hades, removing it from its dark origins and building a brand-new epic with her own complex and beautiful characters. The rest of the gods, nymphs, and creatures of Smythe’s world are the icing on top.”—Liv Albert, author of Greek Mythology: The Gods, Goddesses, and Heroes Handbook and creator of Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby! podcast

“A sweepingly romantic story that offers new meaning with each and every rereading, Rachel Smythe’s Lore Olympus perfectly balances humor and tragedy, heartbreak and desire. Fans who enjoyed it as a webcomic will be thrilled to hold this luscious work of art in their hands.”—Jo Rochelle, creator of Girl Wonder podcast
 
Lore Olympus is an addictive, romantic gem of a comic, filled with complex, lovable (and hateable) characters. The artwork is rich and dramatic, with gorgeous colors and bold linework, each panel a dreamy treat for the eyes. I can’t wait to continue reading Hades and Persephone’s story.”—Faith Erin Hicks, Eisner Award winner and New York Times bestselling cartoonist
 
Lore Olympus is the perfect escape. Rachel Smythe’s artwork is vivid and enchanting, with deeply relatable characters and a deft handling of their dark pasts. For anyone looking for a fresh take on Hades and Persephone, Lore Olympus brings us a sexy and delightful romp that captivates until the very last page. Whimsical and heartfelt!”—Ashley Poston, author of the national bestseller Geekerella
 
Lore Olympus is a delicacy. Funny, dark, sexy, and lavishly illustrated, it delights on every page. I can’t recommend it enough.”—Kate Leth, author of Marvel’s Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!
 
“Moody, beautiful, and funny . . . Be transported to a gorgeous reimagining of Greek gods in a modern fantasy setting. Romance, drama, trauma, and goofs! You will not be able to put this down once you start!”—Babs Tarr, professional comic artist
 
“Romantic, radical, and relatable, goddesses have never been more gloriously grounded. A must-read for any girls figuring out their own power.”—Sam Maggs, co-creator of Tell No Tales: Pirates of the Southern Seas
 
“The tale of Hades and Persephone is one of the most recognizable in all of Greek mythology but in Smythe’s hands, against a sleek modern backdrop, it is made new again. In this reimagining we get a Persephone with agency and nuance, and a Hades with a conscience. The storytelling is immersive, the characters are engaging, and the art is exquisite. I loved every single frame!”—Kalynn Bayron, bestselling author of Cinderella Is Dead
