Persephone for a New Generation
How do I even begin? This story combines mythology, realism, and fantasy effortlessly, balancing humour, romance, and horror with all the grace of a master. Despite the divine forces shaping her destiny, Ness's power comes not from her nature-wielding abilities, but from her courage and autonomy. Ness depends on Hades as much as he depends on her, making their partnership an equal one, which is refreshing to see in a fantasy romance. Even the background characters feel incredibly alive (haha), and the author's ability to balance all the different elements is a point of strength. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to try to find Book Two.
