Persephone (Daughters of Zeus #1) by Kaitlin Bevis

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.

If you like young adult books and mythology, you're going to love Persephone! A new twist on the Greek mythology story of Persephone, modernized with Hades being the good guy instead of the bad, immediately caught my attention.

Persephone 'Kora' is a believable character, true to her age.  Bevis has written a page-turning story that was I sad to see end.  The world-building is spot on and Boreas was a character that I loved to hate.  Persephone does a super job of trying to balance being a Goddess with  being your average teenager.  I thought this book was fun, sweet and page-turning.  I'd definitely read another book by Kaitlin Bevis! 

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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.
