The “talk” was bad enough, but how many teens get told that they’re a goddess? When her mom tells her, Persephone is sure her mother has lost her mind. It isn’t until Boreas, the god of winter, tries to abduct her that she realizes her mother was telling the truth.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was enchanting. Persephone, aka Kora, is a high school student who begins to experience strange occurrences: frost appearing out of nowhere and the feeling she is being followed. Eventually, as the pieces come together, Persephone learns that she is no ordinary girl, but a goddess. As if that wasn’t enough, Persephone is in danger. Luckily, Hades (God of the Underworld) steps in to assist Persephone. Hades is nothing like what Persephone envisioned him to be.
I enjoyed Hades and Persephone’s sweet romantic relationship. Persephone has her flaws, but she is likable and learns along the way. The author’s writing is descriptive and entertaining. I am looking forward to the next book. There is a sample of the sequel at the end of Persephone titled Daughter of Earth and Sky.For an excerpt and more information, please visit Kaitlin Bevis’s website: www.kaitlinbevis.com.
