Demeter proposes that Lina exchange souls with Persephone, the Goddess of Spring, who will breathe new life into her failing bakery. In return, Lina must set order to the Underworld. But when the handsome, brooding Hades kindles a spark in her heart, Lina wonders if this Lord of the Underworld might be the man of her dreams.
I love Greek Mythology, and stories that use the myths as an influence are a firm favourite. My favourite is the story of Hades and Persephone. This is one of my favourite retellings. I just loved how Hades was portrayed and an older heroine even if she is in a young body is something different. This book is about two people falling in love with what’s on the inside.
This is a series but doesn’t have to be read in order, in my opinion. if you love greek myth like I do then this is a book for you.
