Fruit of the dead would bind Persephone to spend her life beneath the earth’s core with Hades But Zeus has reduced every pomegranate tree in the world to ash Except one Persephone must locate that one remaining pomegranate tree a uest that could ignite a war between the two mightiest of the god’s A war that could cause Persephone to lose the only family she’s ever known or give up a love that comes only once every five thousand yea Asphodel noun any of various Old World herbs especially genera Asphodelus and Asphodeline of the lily family with flowers in usually long erect racemes This book is a light read and I m pretty sure adolescents like me would also enjoy this I have mixed feelings with it and let me start off with the good ones What I Like Ms Lauren really researched and knows a lot about Greek myths I d like to congratulate her for writing real facts from the Greek myths and one of the almost exact interpretation of Hades and Persephone love story Most of my views were also hers and I found myself enjoying reading it for the personality of the gods were the exact way I imagined them to be If Ms Lauren and I both have the same imagination and interpretation in Greek myths then do I have a future in writing books Just kidding I love how she wrote about the gods Zeus A greedy and evil man who is the real I repeat real cruellest of all gods and sure doesn t really deserve to be the king of all I m glad Ms Lauren and I both think that the king of Olympus is not that good He s a womanizer that always commits adultery and only thinks of power and superiority that he can get everything he wants view spoiler Here s the whole conversation between Hades and Zeus excerpt from the book The coldness in Hades tone was frosty like too many layers of ice on a frozen lake Why didn t you just send the messenger Because I thought you might kill him Zeus howled out with laughter at his own pun and Hades leered at him The joke wasn t funny for two reasons one because Zeus knew Hades couldn t kill Hermes and two because Hades despised the fact that Zeus always had someone else doing his dirty work At least when Hades did something despicable he mapped out a plan to carry out the idea on his own What do you want Zeus Hades gazed back into the fire lost in thought For a moment he swore he saw her He swore he saw Persephone dancing around in the whirling flames with a radiant smile on her face and the illusion made his heart ache I want this said Zeus All of this He twirled his finger in the air motioning to their surroundings Hades stepped away from the fireplace and lurched closer This My realm The father of all nodded with a sadistic smile Zeus had always been a power hungry god but now he was going too far You can t have it Hades snapped and he felt the fire of rage unfurling inside of him I will not give it up without a fight Oh You ll give it up Zeus lowered his voice Hades remembered that hatred that ran deep for Zeus when he d first condemned him to this realm but after thousands of years Hades had grown fond of his kingdom and he was not giving it up just because Zeus was on a power trip Never The finality in Hades voice made Zeus s eyes widen a tiny bit What about Poseidon Will you take the sea too Zeus tapped his chin with his forefinger thinking Perhaps but that s a different war for a different day You re worse than I am Hades hissed Everyone always thought that Hades was the cruellest of the gods just because of his job but Zeus had him beat But unlike Hades Zeus was able to hide his despicable side and he had one thing Hades normally didn t compassion The god of the sky smiled a fake sickening smile that made Hades stomach churn I take that as a compliment Hades had always believed that everything happened for a reason so there was no need for compassion and as he observed Zeus it appeared that his compassion had been waning as well Hades you need to come with me said Zeus motioning in a come hither gesture Hades eyes wandered around the dining room This was his palace This was his world He did not want to give it up He did not want to leave And if I don t come with you what then Is this really because I took her You knew I would eventually You knew I It s not just because you took her This goes deeper than that Zeus interrupted Hades didn t like the way he d answered his uestions His vagueness was annoying Answer me Zeus And what if I don t come with you willingly What if I put up a fight Zeus narrowed his eyes and held out his palms Hades watched as his fingertips spit out white lines of electricity snapping and cracking before whirling around in circle Then her image appeared She was sleeping and the hard look Hades was wearing faded away She looked so peaceful and beautiful and Hades swore that he saw her mumble his name in her sleep Suddenly Zeus lowered his hands and the ball of electricity evaporated along with the image You will come with me Zeus said with adamant tone Or I ll kill her You can t kill her Hades whispered harshly Zeus let out a long sinister laugh Have you forgotten who I am Hades he asked with a scowl I created her I can most definitely kill her Hades balled up his fists and gritted his teeth hatred pounded through him numbing everything inside of him You wouldn t You underestimate me Hades Zeus clutched his arm and sueezed Then in a low eerily frightening voice he said I would In that moment Hades knew he had to do something drastic to save her He had something to ensure Zeus wouldn t hurt her And that something was breaking Persephone s heart hide spoiler
