Publisher's Summary

He offered her more than a throne. More than the Underworld. He offered her a love that would withstand the test of time.

Maiden, Daughter, Goddess of Spring. She has many names, and none of them fit. Kore lives her life in a gilded cage, loved by all but understood by none.

When Hades appears out of the darkness with promises of midnight and glory on his tongue, he offers her a kingdom. Lays eternity at her feet. Bids her eat and drink from the land of the dead. The ichor tastes bitter, but she's never felt such a thrilling sting.

Then he calls her a new name. Persephone.

Bringer of Death. 

But the gods want them separated, and few can trick the Olympians. Of course she eats the pomegranate. He offers it to her with a promise to lay the world at her feet. But she only wants him....

For fans of Circe, Shadow & Bone, and Serpent & Dove, you'll fall head over heels with this twist on the classic myth.

Narrator loop

Narrator loops audio for the first hour in. An entire chapter is repeated. Other than that, amazing read!

Beautifully written

This retelling was everything I have come to expect from Emma Hamm, who is one of my favorite authors! Hades and Kore were both so beautifully written that I feel like I could know what they were thinking and feeling. Emma does a great job of showing us, instead of just telling us, and the setting of this book is absolutely breathtaking. I also love that each character had to balance good and evil. It made them feel realistic. I absolutely couldn’t put this one down and I’m so glad that my high expectations were met!
