Calypso, queen of the seas, is mad. Spitting mad. Ghosts of the dead are fouling her waters. She wants this problem fixed, and she wants it fixed now. Rushing off in search of Hades, lord of the underworld, to demand answers, she's soon shocked to discover him bound and standing trial before a jury of his peers - for nothing less than murder.
Calypso normally despises the beastly gods, all of them, but there's something about seeing Hades bound as he is that gives her an evilly clever idea. Tired of being a virgin queen, she wishes to shed that boring image once and for all, and no one seems quite as fit for the task as the gorgeous and brooding Hades. Of course, there is the minor problem of murder to deal with, but Calypso is bound and determined to have her way.
And when a dark queen gets an idea, nothing and no one can stand in her way....

I really enjoyed the book, it had me smiling through out and laughing out loud quite a few times. Wasn't sure if I would like it and was hoping I didn't waste my money, I didn't!!! So super cute and fun. Worth ever cent!!! I wish the other books were on audible!!
especially enjoyed this book. wonderful narration excellent storyline very amusing love the different take on the goddess
Before we get started let me just say that I was given the audio version of this book for free, for an honest review. So let's start:
First off this was my first audio book ever. Didn't know what to expect. And I have also read the digital version of this book. And when you're reading a book to yourself you imagine what they sound like, in your head. Actually hearing a voice bring a story to life was a new concept. With that being said I was thrown off for the first couple of chapters because I didn't imagine Calypso sounding/having the voice that Arserio provided.
However, as I passed chapter 4, was when I realized that it was just me and my mindset and I really started to enjoy the sea queen once again. Arserio would change or alter her voice for the different characters and I could see/hear Calypso changing from a questionable tone to sassy don't mess with me tone. I found myself laughing and really enjoying the sea queen from a different perspective.
Was the sea queen a great book: Yes
Was the sea queen a great audio book: HECK YES
Would I recommend this book: DUH!!
Grab this book in audio or digital form because Jovee Winters is a wrting genius and will make you love dairy tales all over again ❤❤❤
What I loved the most about The Sea Queen were the two personalities of the two main characters, Calypso & Hades. The interactions between the two went from serious, funny & down right sexy!
I loved when Calypso would go and visit (in another form) her son & daughter in law.
I just wanted to add that I received this free from the author in return for an honest review. I did read the digital book version as well. It is an impossibly fantastic story. This audio copy was very good. The narrator reading the story did use appropriate intonations & delivered on changing her voice slightly when a character other than Calypso was talking as the story is told from her point of view.
Sexy, fun, and honest
When Calypso all but makes a stubborn god kneel and apologize.
Her vocal inflections and rendition of some of the character voices was interesting to hear.
This absolutely was something I was not able to turn off.
Though the narrators' accent interfered with some words coming across as intended, her voice was pleasant to listen to and suitable for the medium. The story was fantastic and listening to it as read by another was interesting, and enabled me to listen to one of my favorite stories as I did projects around my house where I normally would not be able to read.
