"I stayed up way too late, again! I had to know what happened! You might call me irresponsible, and that may be true. But when a series comes along and grabs you like Daughters of Zeus, it really can't be helped." Amazon Top Reviewer and author, Rachel Wagner
"I need to calm down before I write this review because I am still reeling from the book. OMG! I thought book 1: Persephone was good, but this was WAY BETTER! Lastly, OMG!!! I need book 3 so badly . . ." Amazon Top Reviewer and author, Mary Smith

This series is amazing. I never really cared about how accurate this story is because all myths are myths. But this story brings a whole new light on Hades and Persephone. Their love is so selfless and heart warming but because of a promise Persephone made in the last book, they had obstacles to overcome. Persephone being the goddess of spring and the daughter of Demeter had power on land but bring the wife of Hades gave her access to the underworld too. Zeus wanted that power. He wanted to take over the world and rebuild Olympus. Zeus will not stop until he gets what he wants, even if that means harming his own children. Like most gods he feels no kinship towards them. He creates Aphrodite and makes her befriend Persephone so he could kidnap her and use her to bargain with Hades and Demeter. As the story goes on, Hades and Persephone grows apart because they booth thought they're doing what's right for each other without considering themselves first. Hades starts doubting himself and distances himself from Persephone because he's hurt but he cares too much about her to let her go. Persephone is charmed. This book makes you empathize with both characters and it's like you actually feel what they're feeling. The heartbreak, the unconditional love, the misleading actions, and the trust they have for each other. It's a very touching story! I highly recommend!
