5 out of 5 Stars
Daughters of Zeus #1
16 Year old Persephone is living an ordinary human life with her best friend. She goes to school, deals with the local divas and hopefully catches the eyes of a cute boy.
But this is all about to change. Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. She is a Greek goddess and her normal world is about to be eradicated forever. She is hunted by another god intent to steel her powers, when she runs into him another god jumps in to save her, but the only way to do this is to bind himself forever to her as his husband. This god is Hades, the lord of the underworld.
Persephone is about to take a crash course in being a goddess, but even more, being the wife of the great Hades.
Absolutely freaking fabulous! I love Greek mythology so this story was right up my alley. I loved watching Persephone go from quirky teenager to the queen of the underworld. She is brave and determined. But her love for her family and friends punches her to do the extreme, fight back even if she is still a mortal.
Kaitlin’s take on Hades was amazing. We see the side of him that is deemed fiction in mythology. Don’t get me wrong he doesn’t take any crap from anyone, but as the plot progress we start to see the caring side of him. I loved that Kaitlin didn’t make him the evil god as we always get to see with Hades, instead she shows us the god that take cares of all the souls that pass to the underworld.
Kaitlin made sure that the plot is captivating, nerve wrecking and just plain amazing. I was captured from page one and read this one in one sitting grabbing the second edition with eager anticipation. Well-deserved 5 stars and a must in any to be read list.
