Review: Persephone (Daughters of Zeus), by Kaitlin Bevis

Title: Persephone (Daughters of Zeus)
Author: Kaitlin Bevis
Source: Borrowed from the library
Format: e-book

From Goodreads: "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."

My Opinion: I love the story of Persephone and Hades and I thought this was a great retelling of it! I loved the way Persephone had no idea of who, or what, she was, and she reacted just how I would expect one to act when finding out that basically their whole life had been a lie: She totally panicked! I really hate it when characters find out mind blowing news and just take it in stride. This book deals with all of Persephone's doubts and fears, and she grows so much from beginning to end, both in power and in maturity. I started this book about 6 hours ago and just finished it, so it definitely moves along at a quick pace and is a very easy read.

I definitely recommend this book to all fans of Greek mythology, the Persephone and Hades story, and just about anyone who loves a good paranormal romance! I give it a very enthusiastic 5 stars :D
