BOOK REVIEW: Persephone (Daughters of Zeus #1) by Kaitlin Bevis

Goodreads description:

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.

Mary's review:

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.  This book had me at Persephone!  I am a HUGE Greek-Myth-Nerd! I have been for years and I LOVED book!!

Best part of book:  This book caught me at page 1! I love Kaitlin Bevis' take on Hades and Persephone.  In this book Persephone is a teenage girl, who has not come into her powers yet.  She doesn't even know that she is a Goddess yet!! But, when she is attacked, Hades comes and saves her and marks her as his bride. I loved that part!  Oh, I just loved how descriptive Kaitlin Bevis was about the Underworld.  On top of that, I LOVED Hades.  Ok, ok maybe you should not love the God of the Underworld, but Kaitlin Bevis put a different perceptive on him and the world itself.  Kind of made me wonder if I was wrong about Hades all these years!  He was more than just a God and his love and compassion for Persephone was unwavering.

Not so great about the book:  I can't really say anything was "no great" about the book.  It held my interest the whole time.  There was action, love and mystery.  There was "dragging" parts that made the story "too much".  I loved all the characters and it was GREAT!

I am so glad I have book 2 in my hands .. right now!
