Talia Redowl, daughter of the goddess Athena, expected - and definitely wanted - to work for her mother when she graduated. In particular, she was hoping to be assigned as an aide to her older sister, Danae, their mother’s Avatar.
So when Talia’s graduation assignment is to become the Avatar of Hades, the legendarily anti-social and brooding god of the Underworld, she protests…the position has gone unfilled for two thousand years. Why her? Why now? The Fates weave a tangled web, and more is at stake than Talia’s plans for her own future.
But before she can take up her new post, Talia Redowl must die.
Death is just the beginning…

(written as of chapter 12)
The author mixed the ideas from Piers Anthony's "Incarnations of Immortality" (where the god-like Offices of Death, War, Nature etc were hold by mortals) and Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson" (demigods being trained etc) with other ideas.
Most of the story so far is basically introduction to the concepts, with the real story of a bigger mystery only beginning in chapter 10 (after a timeskip).
It seems like a nice start to a number of rarely used concepts in fiction (from the other reviews few people remember the old "incarnations" series as it was written 1983-1990 with one last late book 2007), with more emphasis on the adult "incarnations" and less on the teenager-focused books of Riordan.
Looking forward to see how it develops.
Not my cup of tea. I like more novels with orginality. But this story has very few grammar mistakes, is funny, interesting, and includes good ties with greek and roman culture. Keep going author! Looks amazing already.
This has the potential to turn in to a very sucessful book.
Higher quality then I have seen in many published books.
Now its no groundbreaking new idea, but very well executed and different enough to give it its own flare. The characters we got to know are quite interesting, the plot is good too. what I wish to see is maybe a bit more in depth character developement, but ehh up to chapter 10 its more like an introduction and the main plot is probably going to start in the following chapters.
The mythical beings are too nice. I can't suspend my disbelief enough. I can smell an unnecessary love affair from ch 5. Meh.
It’s in the point one percent of stories of RR that has excellent writing and grammar compelling characters, who actually feel real, and an interesting premise. I won’t comment on the plot because so far as of 10/10 the introduction of the story just rapped up but I will be following Pluto and will update my review accordingly. Just read it even if it’s not your thing the story is quantitatively better than the majority of stories you can find on the site.
This novel is brilliantly written. Its pacing, dialogs, characters, descriptions and plot all exude a great deal of care and focus put into them. It's clear the author did his research before starting to write. It wouldn't surprise me to see this novel on the sheleves of a book store one day, so long as its standard of quality doesn't decline.
Talia, a demigod and daughter of Athena, is offered an unexpected job. We follow her as she works through Minotaurs and paperwork to make the world safer.
This is a story with perfect grammar and an immersive world building. The characters are fun and they have their own personality. The story itself is a whodunnit for book one, it is wholesome if a bit basic. I recommend Pluto for people who want a light and relaxed read, you will not be disappointed.
This novel ticks all the right boxes for me. Based heavily on mythology in the modern world (Athena no longer a virgin goddess?) this novel has all the characteristics of being something absolutely amazing. Despite only being 12 chapters long as of writing, there's plenty to get you almost instantly hooked.
Spelling and grammar are impecable, the characters that have been revealed so far have their individual personalities and from what I can tell, there doesn't appear to be any stereotypes (unless you call a child of Aphrodite being a bit of a loose lover a stereotype).
All in all, an excellent novel and I look forward to reading more.
I don't normally seek out supernatural mysteries or urban fantasies but I'm still enjoying this story. If you do like those kinds of stories then you'll likely enjoy this quite a bit. Even with it not being something I normally tend to read I do think this is well written and I'll probably keep reading.
I think this story is a little too plot driven, like things are only happening to the characters and they aren't actually doing things themselves. It's not a huge problem though.
I like the confident writing voice, the good pacing, and the richly imagined (and updated!) mythological world. The author has a clear love for mythology and has done his research. I loved the little touches, like that unopened large jar that keeps hinting at being Pandora's Box. The female characters have fascinating conversations and I'm drawn into their struggles. There's a good deal of promising setup. I'm intrigued, and looking forward to reading more!
