This week I read Persephone (per-seph-uh-nee). Here is a short summary:There are worse things than death, worse people too. People such as Boreas who will do anything to get Persephone. How many teens get told that they’re a goddess? Not very many, right. So imagine Persephone’s disbelief and surprise when after someone tries to abduct her, her mother tells her the news: “You are a Goddess.”Imagine you were human as far as you knew, until you were 16. The way you find out? Simple – a demigod invites you for coffee planning to abduct you taking you to his master, who takes you to his master, your father who everyone thinks is dead. Boreas, the god of winter, will stop at nothing to get Persephone. Persephone must find a way to defeat Boreas and reclaim her life. Everyone’s different. But how many people have beach blonde hair and an unnatural eye color? Persephone does.
So as you can tell Persephone is the main character. But so is Hades, God of the Underworld. This methodical book had my attention from the minute I read the summary to the last line. I felt excited as I read this book with an exception of a few arguments and foolish decisions. What I liked about this book was that it was exciting and took me into The Underworld.It gave me a new perspective of The Underworld. Comeback tomorrow to read about a special book: Summer of the Monkeys
Next week I am reading The Legend of Ghost Dog Island by Rita Monette. Please read it too.
