Review: A Game of Retribution by Scarlett St. Clair

Updated: Jun 17, 2022

Happy release day to Scarlett St. Clair with her newest installment in the Hades saga, A Game of Retribution! Buckle up, get your tissues, and let’s go for a ride!


A Game of Retribution is A Touch of Ruin’s counterpart. Read my review of ATOR here. If you haven’t read ATOR, I maybe would read that first. Mainly so you can prepare yourself for the emotional damage Scarlett is about to inflict.


Trigger/Content warnings include: grief, death of a loved one, sexual assault, explicit sexual content, drug use, overdose, domestic abuse (mentions), and violence.


While this is *technically* ATOR from Hades’ point of view, there is so much more to A Game of Retribution. Hades gets into a lot when Persephone isn’t around, and in ATOR, Persephone isn’t around quite a bit. Hades is a freaking God. He’s got a lot going on, specifically some drama with the other gods. Specifically Hera. Who has a massive stick up her booty apparently.
