My Thoughts :
A delightful twist on mythology!
Sophie is just beginning her freshman year of college her in the states. When she is kidnapped only to reappear into an entirely different world. Sophie is a normal girl with family and a boyfriend. All of that is about to change. Adrian shares a world of broken souls and promises. He shares with Sophie that if you eat a pomegranate fruit you'll bring back memories of all of your past lives. (you'll either find that odd or fascinating )
Sophie does eat this forbidden fruit and her memories come flooding back. She remembers that Adrian or Hades has been in all of her past lives and that she too is the Goddess Persephone. He is the God Hades. There are parts that move really very slowly for me. It took me a good while to get into the book. Once I did though I felt like I was reading a love story that had persevered through hundreds of years and time. Exploring their past, and watching the future unfold at the same time. Persephone and Hades were meant to be but will they actually be in this life? A truly romantic plot. If you enjoy stories with mythology , Gods and Goddesses I think you will enjoy this book. There is plenty to make this fictional read FUN!
Persephone's Orchard is due out June 28th 2013. It is the first book in the Chrisomillia Series.
Persephone's Orchard will be available beginning June 28th - July 12 for 0.99 on Amazon.
More About the Book:
The Greek gods never actually existed. Did they? Sophie Darrow finds she was wrong about that assumption when she's pulled into the spirit realm, complete with an Underworld, on her very first day at college. Adrian, the mysterious young man who brought her there, simply wants her to taste a pomegranate. And soon, though she returns to her regular life, her mind begins exploding with dreams and memories of ancient times--of a love between two Greeks named Persephone and Hades. But lethal danger has always surrounded the immortals, and now that she's tainted with the Underworld's magic, that danger is drawing closer to Sophie.
