Review: Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis

Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis
Published Date: July 2012
Publisher: Euterpe
Genre: YA

The Story:

There are worse things than death, worse people too.
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. Hades rescues her, and in order to safely bring Persephone to the Underworld he marks her as his bride. But Boreas will stop at nothing to get Persephone. Despite her growing feelings for Hades, Persephone wants to return to the living realm. Persephone must find a way to defeat Boreas and reclaim her life.
 
My Review:  Wow.  I loved learning about Greek mythology in school. But Kaitlin Bevis' book Persephone brings all that lore into another world for us to understand!  And Hades, definately doesn't sound like the typical guy we might picture.  Oh, and don't worry, you won't get lost while reading!  Kaitlin Bevis makes it real easy to follow all the different gods and goddessses.  If you haven't looked into this book, but was looking for a new romance read, pick it up!
