Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis

Synopsis

Daughters of Zeus, Book One
One day Persephone is an ordinary high school junior working at her mom’s flower shop in Athens, Georgia. The next she’s fighting off Boreas, the brutal god of Winter, and learning that she’s a bonafide goddess—a rare daughter of the now-dead Zeus. Her goddess mom whisks her off to the Underworld to hide until Spring.
There she finds herself under the protection of handsome Hades, the god of the dead, and she’s automatically married to him. It’s the only way he can keep her safe. Older, wiser, and far more powerful than she, Hades isn’t interested in becoming her lover, at least not anytime soon. But every time he rescues her from another of Zeus’s schemes, they fall in love a little more. Will Hades ever admit his feelings for her?
Can she escape the grasp of her powerful dad’s minions? The Underworld is a very cool place, but is it worth giving up her life in the realm of the living? Her goddess powers are developing some serious, kick-butt potential. She’s going to fight back.


My Thoughts

I received this book via NG in return for an honest review.
Oh. My. Gosh.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!
Honestly, when I first started this book, I thought it was to much like "Downcast"m but me being a big Persephone fan, I kept reading and I'm so glad I did! This book was so great! There was so much going on but it wasn't to much. It was just enough to keep you interested into reading start to finish. Lol. I loved the story line and the characters. There was so much difference in them all, yet they all fit together amazingly. To me, this book was different in the terms of relationship. Lets face it, in most YA book, they meet, fall in love, and it's all in one page and through the whole thing the guy and girl are joined at the hip. While yes, Persephone and Hades did fall for each other, the book wasn't based on them sucking face all the time. Lol In fact, Hades tried to keep his distance from her because she was "young". I don't know, I just have a lot of respect for that. Oh man, that ending was BEAST! That fight scene was so epic to me. Loved it and possibly my most favorite part. Can't wait to read book two!

    1. I was iffy about it as well, but I love just about anything Persephone so I gave it a try. I really liked this version because out of all the Persephone books I have read, this one was just different to me.
