Reviewed by Amelia

The mortal Psyche, and her husband, the god Eros, are in love, but apart, due to the machinations of his mother, Aphrodite, and her evil sisters.

But Psyche decides that she won’t let Aphrodite control her life.  She works to get revenge on her sisters and her mother-in-law.  Eros, who learns that his mother is behind the split with his wife, plots revenge on her as well.

When Psyche and Eros meet again, Psyche makers Eros work for her love, and learn valuable lessons.   Psyche, meanwhile, has pledged herself to work for her mother-in-law, which leads to some tough situations. 

Mortal Retribution is an interesting continuation of the Goddess’ Revenge story, Book 1 of the Mythos series.  I loved the way Psyche grew in this story, standing up for herself and setting her mother-in-law to rights.  I was a little disturbed by her mission in Hades, but enjoyed watching her best Aphrodite at every turn.  Eros also grew in this tale. 

Readers who read Goddess’ Revenge will enjoy Mortal Retribution.  Readers new to the series need to start at the first book, and will enjoy this look into the lives of the Greek gods.
