This time it's easy finding Hades. Loud voices rise from a closed room. We have company ke a sword coming down on an enemy's neck. There's dead silence. It's like I'm wading into the room. Hermes stands by the window, his arms crossed tightly in front of his chest. He stares over at me, his mouth a thin, determined slash

Radiant Darkness - Emily Whitman. Emily Whitman offers a different type of story in which the young spring goddess was stifled by her mother's constant sheltering. I really enjoyed this rendition of Persephone and how strong she became by the end of the story. It was troubling how she could not find her voice first with her overbearing mother, Demeter, and then with her (lovingly) possessive husband, Hades.

This book is a retelling of the Greek myth about Persephone; I had heard the myth before, but I didn’t brush up on it before I read the book . Persephone herself is but a voice/ or a darkness invisible enfolded in the deeper dark.

This book is a retelling of the Greek myth about Persephone; I had heard the myth before, but I didn’t brush up on it before I read the book, so it was fun to watch it unfold without knowing precisely how things were going to play out. Persephone is the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of fertility and grain.

He smiles. "Hello."

It's a deep voice. I can feel it reverberate in my chest and echo all the way down to my toes.

I know I should leave, but I don't want to. I want to keep my senses like this forever. I'm all eye, all ear, all skin.

Persephone lives in the most gorgeous place in the world. But her mother's a goddess, as overprotective as she is powerful. Paradise has become a trap. Just when Persephone feels there's no chance of escaping the life that's been planned for her, a mysterious stranger arrives. A stranger who promises something more—something dangerous and exciting—something that spurs Persephone to make a daring choice. A choice that could destroy all she's come to love, even the earth itself.

In a land where a singing river can make you forget your very name, Persephone is forced to discover who—and what—she really is.
