Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Love mythology!"
    Where does Persephone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since Persephone was the first audio book I have listened to since way back when I will say audio books have come very far since those days. So it will be rated first in line for now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the enthusiasm with which Kaitlin Bevis speaks, the way her voice got excited, quiet or whatever needed to set the tone.


    Have you listened to any of Kaitlin Bevis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first for now, I am moving on to the next in the series so I will let you know.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Have you ever wondered what realizing you are a Goddess would feel like?


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend having this audio book around for those times you would like to be reading but can't stop to read, such as; exercising, car trips, doctor's office. I am sure you get the point.

    Story
    "Persephone from Athens, Georgia...Classic!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would...the narrator's voice was pleasant to listen to and she emphasized emotion when it came to situations of stress, excitement and sorrow.


    What other book might you compare Persephone to and why?

    I haven't read that many YA books pertaining to Greek mythology, but I would compare Persephone to the Percy Jackson series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Persephone met the musician, Orpheus. I thought it was brilliant to bring in that character and his wife, Eurydice from mythology.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As an avid reader of Greek mythology, I was giddy with delight and joy to see these deities come to life in modern time.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the author's take on how the Underworld is ran and that Hades is not the bad guy, everyone makes him out to be. A great story overall and would love to see this on film. One quote I would add to my Goodreads favorites, "Hades has the ability to kill you then torture you."

    Story
    "Amazing take on a classic tale!"
    Would you listen to Persephone again? Why?

    YES. I would definitely listen to Persephone again and I plan on doing that many times. The story was wonderful and the characters were deep. I was able to get into the story very easily.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Persephone?

    Hades kissing Persephone and marking her as his bride, omg. *chills* Didn't even know him yet but I fell in love right there.


    What about Kaitlin Bevis’s performance did you like?

    I loved how she added tone and snark to her character's dialogue. I didn't have to squint and figure things out myself, because Bevis let me know exactly what was going on at all times.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, of course. But how am I supposed to share these moments without spoiling the whole story?


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the new take on the classic Greek myth of Persephone and Hades. Bevis did a wonderful job of taking a fairly-well-known story and turning it into something new and exciting!

    Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.
