Persephone (Daughters of Zeus #1)

Young Adult

Persephone is a typical teenage girl - bored with high school and sharing every adventure with her BFF Melissa.  There is just this one little thing:  her mother tells her she is an immortal goddess!  Her mother is Demeter, Goddess of Nature, and Persephone is the Goddess of Spring and a daughter of Zeus.  When Boreas, God of Winter attempts to capture Persephone she is rescued by Hades and taken to safety in the Underworld.  If she can just stay there for the winter, she will be safe from harm.  

Persephone embarks on a strange journey as she learns about the life of a goddess.  And then there is Hades...when he brought Persephone to the Underworld, she became his queen, but will their relationship be more than just in name only, since it will last for eternity?  


Kaitlin Bevis writes a spellbinding tale of a young girl whose life takes an incredible twist into a whole new realm.  For mythology buffs, “Persephone” takes ancient stories and gives them a modern look which is totally captivating.  The relationship between Persephone and Hades will tease the reader, and Persephone finds out what she’s really made of when Boreas kidnaps Melissa to trap her.  And readers will wait eagerly for the sequel to “Persephone”, when she meets other gods thought long dead, and continues to pursue Hades and an eternal romance.
