I bought this because I have studied the Persephone myth extensively in several English courses in college, and I was intrigued by an erotica based around said myth. I wasn't expecting much, given my past experiences with erotica; most I have seen tend to be juvenile, poorly written, and focus more on generic body parts than on creating a powerful scene as a whole. This, however, totally knocked my socks off. Not only is it steamy, with plenty of truly well-written sex scenes that are far more that just heaving and thrusting, but the characters are well-thought-out and multi-dimensional. The descriptions of the setting and world are spectacular, and the universe is peopled with numerous secondary characters along with the main ones, adding depth. This author has talent and has brought it to bear in this work. I found it truly enjoyable. Best of all, it isn't one of those 10 page quickie things they sell on here so often...this is a full-length book!

Pretty Good

The book was pretty good. Worth the read but what happened to the ending? It just dropped! Sex was good but the ending was truly disappointing because there was none.

    Great BDSM, not so accurate mythos

    This story is great if you want a quick erotic read and are generally aquainted with the greek mythos. However, if you study it be prepared for a headache. ( the number of seeds isn't even correct) Other than that, good smut.
