Persephone's Orchard (The Chrysomelia Stories #1) by Molly Ringle Review & Giveaway

The Greek gods never actually existed. Did they? Sophie Darrow finds she was wrong about that assumption when she's pulled into the spirit realm, complete with an Underworld, on her first day at college. Adrian, the mysterious young man who brought her there, simply wants her to taste a pomegranate. 

Soon, though she returns to her regular life, her mind begins exploding with dreams and memories of ancient times; of a love between two Greeks named Persephone and Hades. But lethal danger has always surrounded the immortals, and now that she's tainted with the Underworld's magic, that danger is drawing closer to Sophie.

If you enjoy stories based on mythology, you will want to read Persephone's Orchard. On Sophie's first day at college, a day that already has her flummoxed missing her boyfriend and family, she meets a cute, but strange boy.  He needs some help, so she decides to show him where he is wanting to go, but instead, everything goes wonky and Sophie finds herself in a field in a different world.

There, Adrian beseeches her to try a pomegranate.  It's said to bring forth all of your old lives and memories and Sophie does.  She then returns to her own time and world but nothing is the same.  Sophie keeps having memories of Hades and Persephone, who she believes she is.  A love story that transcends time and worlds, Persephone's Orchard is a compelling read with vividly painted worlds and intriguing characters.  I can't wait to read the next installment!

For the next two weeks only, Persephone's Orchard can be purchased for .99 on Kindle!

  1. Thank you very much for your giveaway. Your time and effort to do this is very much appreciated by me.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
