Sophie Darrow said yes once to a young man offering a realm of Greek gods and immortality. Now her home has been shattered, and her friends and family pulled along with her as they run from an evil cult and take shelter in the gloomy Underworld. To love, trust, and smile again seems almost out of Sophie’s reach. But remembering the life of the original Persephone and her fellow immortals long ago may prove the best therapy, as well as their key to victory. In ancient times too, the murderous cult Thanatos attacked and eventually wiped out the Greek immortals who sought to bring good to humankind. But those immortals planted seeds in both their realm and ours to ensure that their season would bloom again someday. And spring is finally coming.
A great mix of old and new, but oh so realistic.
I’ve never read a Molly Ringle book before and I’m glad I rectified it. I’ll certainly go back and read the others in this series. The writing was crisp, sharp and kept me on my toes. I had to know what was going to happen next. Ms Ringle writes characters that are well-rounded and likable, even when they’re going through some serious emotional crisises.
I liked how the author moved between the present and the past, showing the different sides of the characters. While it was interesting, sometimes I did get confused. I had to reread a few times to make sure I understood what was going on and who did what. There were a lot of characters and a lot happening.
That said, I was immersed in their world and enjoyed reading about these immortals. If you want a book that will challenge, excite and enthrall you, then this might be the book for you. There’s a whole lot going on and it’s overwhelming, but very cool.
