Summary

A retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth; a girl growing into her power and her destiny. Persephone has been raised in Olympus all her life, her mother absent, her father a cruel king, with her siblings teaching her all they know. She has seen all of what the gods and goddesses do, their killing, their assaulting, the tricks they play on humans, and she is sick of it. When she learns her safety is threatened by staying in Olympus, she takes the advice of a shrouded goddess and flees to the Underworld, the only place feared by the Olympians, to be taken in by the chthonic deities. There she stays until she learns that her leaving Olympus causes the world to wilt, but leaving behind her newfound friends and Lady of the Underworld is something she will not do willingly, no matter the consequences. A retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth, a story of fate, the struggle for power, and love found in the most unexpected places.
