Publisher's Summary

"A dark, lush retelling of the Persephone myth as only Kitty Thomas could tell it.” (Anna Zaires, New York Times bestselling author)

When Persephone was born, Zeus received a troubling prophecy. Some day his beautiful innocent daughter would be taken captive by Hades, the dark god of the underworld. Determined to protect her, her father hid her away in the human world where she would be shielded from her fate.

Hades learned of this betrayal nine centuries ago. He’s been searching for his destined queen ever since. And when he finds her, no power on earth or below it will stop him.

He will take her. He will corrupt her. And Zeus will suffer for daring to keep her from him.

You are in for a ride!

The first Kitty Thomas book in audio!! If you only “read” audiobooks, get ready for one hell of a ride. A great intro into her writing with an amazing narrator. One of my all time favorite dark authors with this book pushing lots of boundaries that some of her other work never even touched. If you got your seatbelt on, pick this up and hold on tight. Enjoy!

A brilliant and sinful tale

This retelling of Hades and Persephone is beautifully crafted with a modern day twist of dark undertones and BDSM-themed elements. It was actually quite genius of the author with how creatively the mythology was adapted, and I loved the author’s vision of their dom/sub relationship as well as the description of the underworld itself. I wish I had a castle to grant my every desire! Gregory Salinas did an amazing job on narration and his range of voices is top notch. He especially delivered a stellar performance for Hades, creating a dark and sexy god that you can’t help but swoon over. I loved every minute of this brilliant and sinful tale!

Perfect!!!

I loved reading Persephone when it came out. But listening to Gregory Salinas narrate this story to me takes it to a whole other level. He was absolutely perfect, first and foremost, in how he captures Hades and how you just completely get lost in hearing him tell you the tale of the God of the Underworld finding his Goddess of Spring. Even when he is reading as Persephone it just works. This is just a perfect, and freakin hot, listen. A must have!!!

I Never!

I’ve never read/listened to audible before, or really any audio oriented book. I thought it would be boring, or that I would allow my thoughts to wander. But WOW. I didn’t think it would create the world all over again.

I have read this book that Kitty put out previously and figured I would try it in audible. Greg did not disappoint. Either as Persephone or Hades. His voice was entrancing and delightful, to say the least.

And boy my face when the erotic bits were happening. Usually, I’d be reading the books at night, in the dark, where not even my husband knows what is going on, but I found myself listening at my pc in broad daylight because I couldn’t get away. With my pale complexion and His voice in my ears speaking Kitty’s erotic written words? It was like a beacon to damnation itself.

Enter the Audiblely Erotic Underworld if you dare. But be forewarned, wet panties just kind of happen.

Kitty, you’ve converted this fool. Ha!

Extremely well done Greek mythology romance

Excellent story of PERSEPHONE. Gregory Salinas did a fabulous job narrating. The deep timber of his Hades voice was as perfect as his female voices. Loved it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Not the typical Hades and Persephone story

I am not sure why this is, but I was expecting a teenage/high school type Hades and Persephone story. This was anything but that! Kitty Thomas's version is really dark. Like stuff that I would normally stay away from kind of dark, But in this case, and for reasons that I don't really understand, I was totally in to it and it works. I won the audio version but had already had the ebook in my library as I have been wanting to read it forever. And I'm super glad that I got to listen because the guy narrating, Gregory Salinas, completely nailed it. Highly recommend, but as I said, it's not for the faint of heart.

Fascinating Take on a Classic Myth! 4.5🔥Hot🔥Stars🌟

There are several different versions of Persephone & Hades story, but none quite like Kitty Thomas’. She puts her own spin on the tale and adds a bit more heat, sure it gets hot in hell but she makes it a better kind of hot, a kinkier kind. Persephone starts off in modern times in NYC, after years of searching for her Hades comes for her and takes her back with him to the underworld. Then all hell breaks loose, with Hades in control, he makes a submissive of Persephone, not quite sure how I feel about that, I’ve always pictured her as a strong goddess but then again being a sub does not make a person weak. And in the end she shows her strength. I enjoyed this retelling of the classic myth, Kitty Thomas is imaginative and creative in her writing and plotting. Lots of drama, angst and some godly and ungodly kinky sexcapades. Thank you Kitty Thomas on this great & entertaining story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Gregory Salinas is a terrific narrator and voice performer. He brings the characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. He played a badass Hades, he also did Persephone justice when she spoke in first person. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

The love story of Hades & Persephone.

Beautiful, dark erotic re-telling. I have read this before but this was my first encounter with audible. Got to say I was impressed more than I expected to be. The narrator's voice fits very well, very easy on the ears. With a voice like that, I could definitely go a bit weak at the knees for Hades. With audible, the ability to do chores whilst listening to Kitty's retelling of this story makes the mundane a thoroughly more enjoyable experience.
The story revolves around a very sexy Hades and the previously sheltered Persephone. Corruption, pleasures and a little debauchery soon follow, it is set in the underworld, what else would you expect. Well, there is also the love these 2 have for each other.
I love the story and love the audible experience. Congratulations Kitty, I loved every word.
