Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld.
But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand.
Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon in the throes of the Trojan War. Learn how their children--Hypnos, Thanatos, Megaera, Tisiphone, Alecto, and Melinoe--came into being. Discover why they were assigned their respective duties as Sleep, Death, the Furies, and the goddess of ghosts. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods.
This prequel to The Underworld Saga is more than a retelling of the Persephone myth. Many more of the ancient myths are woven together to reveal the conflict, tension, and relationships among the gods in one of the most beloved pantheons in human history.
Persephone can be read before or after The Underworld Saga.
*Formerly called The Gatekeeper's Bride
Praise for Persephone:
"I love how Eva created the love story of Hades and Persephone. It's both beautiful and tragic in many ways."--Book Lover Reviews ★★★★★
"This is such a beautifully and originally retold version of the legend of Persephone and Hades while still feeling true to the mythology. This is an emotional roller-coaster of a book; my heart just breaks for Persephone but I'm not going to say why... you'll just need to read it."--Tamara ★★★★★
"Such fun heart warming stories. You really, really want things to work out for the them but well, life and death wait for no one."--Kathy Goodwin ★★★★★
"Well written and fast paced! Really enjoyed it! Looking forward to reading the next ones!"--K.Giegkorov ★★★★★
"Although this doesn't follow the exact timeline of the more traditional Greek mythologies, this is definitely a good read! I had the HARDEST time putting the book down and was even reading instead of working at times. By far one of my favorite younger targeted books that I've read in a long time. Easy read, detailed, and exciting to the very last page! Well done!!!"--Princess Julie ★★★★★
"Excellent! Very easy to read. Liked the mythology mixed with a modern vibe."--Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★
