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.
You've all heard about ancient myths, yeah I did to. I've heard about them a lot but about Persephone I haven't heard of before. So I should start this with thank you note, cause today I've learned something new and I'm grateful for that.
I, as a real geek, did my research so it took me by surprise how the author did really good job by creating the story out of it. Just so you know the myth has some similarities but here the story fits better in out time. Here the story has been written in a way that you can relate to the gods and feel them. They're not that mysterious creatures that live far away, they're beings with a feelings and you can walk with them through the story. I won't tell you more about the story cause the blurb tells enough. But I really did like the story only the problem is relationship between Persephone and Hades cause it was rushed in my opinion. I couldn't see it or feel it for the matter to develop and that's the only thing that bothers me here. Yes I know that's the thing with gods, but problem is the story is set in present time so I guess the relationships should be too.
All in all I'd like to read the second book cause I see that there is a lot of interesting things I'm yet to learn about.
Now please excuse me while I go and ready myths until my head blows.
Until the next time,
