Daughter of Hades by Mack Little is a 17th-century story set in France, Jamaica, and Barbados. In Barbados, the Admiral’s son, Owen Craig, raped Geraldine Obosi, a slave. She escaped with her twin brother, Jimmie, to a pirate ship (Hades), where she met Lei. The gang of Lei, Jimmie, and Captain Duff sought retribution on Owen, taking his most prized possession. In France, Pax murdered his mother’s killer and ran to safety with his brother and friend, Ivan and Philippe. The trio also found themselves on a pirate ship (La Fortuna) that met and joined forces with Hades. However, retribution may tarry, but it must come to pass. When Geraldine found happiness, the aggrieved returned for their pound of flesh. Will she go back to being a slave? Will Geraldine’s happiness last?
Daughter of Hades by Mack Little is a tale of pain, machinations, gore, loyalty, love, honor, and survival. The story was riveting and the plot was outstanding. I want to applaud Mack for writing a very descriptive novel that awakened my imagination. Also, it hit home because the story featured my people, making me appreciate their strength, reach, will, and how far they have come. I was heartbroken, too, because slavery is evil. Even though the shackles were off their feet, I don’t think the same goes for the mental chains. This story was a cocktail of fact and fiction. Mack Little developed powerful characters, and I loved Dinny, Ami, and Ijemma, who were formidable and lethal in various aspects. Jimmie, Ivan, the brave Pax and Kossi, and the fierce Leixiang were stars. Thank you, Mack!
