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.

"Persephone from Athens, Georgia...Classic!"
Yes, I would...the narrator's voice was pleasant to listen to and she emphasized emotion when it came to situations of stress, excitement and sorrow.
I haven't read that many YA books pertaining to Greek mythology, but I would compare Persephone to the Percy Jackson series.
When Persephone met the musician, Orpheus. I thought it was brilliant to bring in that character and his wife, Eurydice from mythology.
As an avid reader of Greek mythology, I was giddy with delight and joy to see these deities come to life in modern time.
I love the author's take on how the Underworld is ran and that Hades is not the bad guy, everyone makes him out to be. A great story overall and would love to see this on film. One quote I would add to my Goodreads favorites, "Hades has the ability to kill you then torture you."
"Amazing take on a classic tale!"
YES. I would definitely listen to Persephone again and I plan on doing that many times. The story was wonderful and the characters were deep. I was able to get into the story very easily.
Hades kissing Persephone and marking her as his bride, omg. *chills* Didn't even know him yet but I fell in love right there.
I loved how she added tone and snark to her character's dialogue. I didn't have to squint and figure things out myself, because Bevis let me know exactly what was going on at all times.
Yes, of course. But how am I supposed to share these moments without spoiling the whole story?
I loved the new take on the classic Greek myth of Persephone and Hades. Bevis did a wonderful job of taking a fairly-well-known story and turning it into something new and exciting!
"A Myth With A Modern Twist"
touching, magical, and it's a story you can't put down.
Hades was by far my favorite character, due to his quirky personality and his caring but cold persona.
I love the book from beginning to end. It's hard to pick a favorite part because everything was so well written.
I listened and read this book in one sitting. I did it with all Kaitlin's books. Every one of her stories is too captivating to put down.
I would recommend this series to anyone who loves mythology or a quick read. This is one of my favorite series I've ever stumbled upon.
Since Persephone was the first audio book I have listened to since way back when I will say audio books have come very far since those days. So it will be rated first in line for now.
I love the enthusiasm with which Kaitlin Bevis speaks, the way her voice got excited, quiet or whatever needed to set the tone.
This is the first for now, I am moving on to the next in the series so I will let you know.
Have you ever wondered what realizing you are a Goddess would feel like?
I would recommend having this audio book around for those times you would like to be reading but can't stop to read, such as; exercising, car trips, doctor's office. I am sure you get the point.
"I loved it!"
The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I loved this audiobook! When I saw that the author had narrated her own book, my first thought was "this is going to be an awful book to listen to." Boy, was I ever wrong!! Kaitlin Bevis is amazing! Not only is the story good but she is an amazing narrator to boot! I loved the underworld and Hades and want to explore the relationship between him and Persephone more. I can't wait to hear what else Kaitlin Bevis has in store for us in this series!
Loved it and can't wait to read the next! It was beautifully written and a great version of the Greek mythological story of Hades and Persephone.
While this book has some excellent ideas and there's a good structure, it became predictable, I got frustrated with the main character often and her diction was a bit annoying.
"Narration ruined the story"
Different take on an old tale
She should do herself a favor and let someone else read her story
