Review: A Beautiful Liar by Beenha Khan


I gave Hades a fake name at the club, and now, he’s chosen me as his mate.

Once upon a myth…
I’ve always been sheltered by my overprotective mother, hence the nickname given to me by my tormentors. “The nun.” As a geeky scholarship student at the ancient and prestigious Saint Eudora Academy, I craved freedom, so, I sneaked out into the nightlife for the first time to mend my broken heart. There, I met a pair of alluring blue eyes and our worlds collided leaving nothing but destruction in its wake.

It was a single night, and we both wanted to forget someone. He said, I have six months before he returns. Six months to tell my old life goodbye. In my drunk state, I agreed, and he declared us as betrothed. The next morning, I ghosted him.

Imagine my surprise when I see him at my academy six months later. He’s returned like a raging inferno to claim me.

The connection and recognition are still there. He was supposed to only be a myth. The man I meet now is different. He’s tortured, dark, and deadly like Hades. A sense of danger surrounds him, trapping me toward him. I don’t know what he is capable of until a favor from the reaper and a chilling murder forces us to bond.

I fear the unknown ahead of me when I finally unmask him. I’m entangled in a web of secrets and lies where money and power rule in his dark world. He says he collects souls, and now he is here to take mine.

Valerius Vitalli will never let me go.

My opinion:

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A Beautiful Liar by Beena Khan is a gothic romance. It’s the first book from the Hades and Persephone series.

This is about Valerius Vitalli and Anabella Serra. He was the younger brother of a dangerous Don. She was a smart girl who was ignored or teased for her appearance. They met at a bar where they were trying to drown their sorrows. One thing led to another and they
ended up at his apartment. Valerius asked her to make a pact, in six months he would return and they could be together. Six months had passed and he was a beautiful memory for Anabella until he appeared out of nowhere. He had changed and that scared her but she was still drawn to him. She was the light to his darkness and he wouldn’t stop at anything to make her his forever…

This is a dark retelling of the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. It is the closest to the original tale I have ever read. The author has kept some very important details such as the overprotective mother, the six-month period, and the girl’s innocence. The plot is incredible, very addictive, and mysterious. I really liked the mix of the romance subgenres. It goes from young adult to college romance and then dark mafia. This dangerous and alluring element was what attracted me the most to this story. The characters had amazing chemistry. They had a lot in common since they craved to be seen and loved. I fell in love with both of them. I just hope that she can hold onto her kindness until the very end.

This is my new favorite book from this author and I will rate it with 5 stars.
