The “talk” was bad enough, but how many teens get told that they’re a goddess? When her mom tells her, Persephone is sure her mother has lost her mind. It isn’t until Boreas, the god of winter, tries to abduct her that she realizes her mother was telling the truth. Hades rescues her, and in order to safely bring Persephone to the Underworld he marks her as his bride. But Boreas will stop at nothing to get Persephone. Despite her growing feelings for Hades, Persephone wants to return to the living realm. Persephone must find a way to defeat Boreas and reclaim her life.

Description Provided by Goodreads: Some vows can never be broken. Persephone thought she could go back to her normal life after returning from the Underworld. She was wrong. The goddess Aphrodite is born among the waves with more charm than she can control. Zeus is stalking Persephone and her loved ones, and Thanatos is no longer content with Persephone’s silence. He wants her soul. Persephone can’t tell anyone about Thanatos’ betrayal, and it drives a wedge between her and Hades. Her mother is still keeping secrets, and Melissa’s jealousy of Aphrodite threatens to tear their friendship apart. Alone, Persephone turns to a human boy for comfort. But will their relationship put him in danger? Sacrifices must be made, and Persephone must choose between her human life and her responsibilities as a goddess. If she doesn’t, she could lose them both. But will either life be worth choosing once Zeus is through with her?
Description Provided by Goodreads: Life is hell for Persephone. Zeus will stop at nothing to gain access to the living realm and the Underworld, and as the only living god with a right to both, Persephone’s in trouble. Captured and tortured beyond the limits of her resolve, Persephone must find the power to stand against Zeus. But will she be strong enough?
Meanwhile, Hades contemplates desperate measures to rescue his queen. Persephone never thought of herself as dangerous, but there’s a reason gods never marry for love. A being with the power to destroy all of creation shouldn’t place more value in one individual than the rest of the planet. But Hades...Hades would break the world for her.
To save the world and stop both Hades and Zeus, Persephone must make a difficult choice. One that may cost her everything.
The branch crashed in front of me, scraping my legs. I ran for the parking
lot as fast as I could. The frost closed in, surrounding me. I’d never been
claustrophobic, but as the frost cut off my escape path with a solid white
wall, I panicked.
Fog rolled in, like cold death, cutting off my view of the park. It curled
around me, brushing against my face, arms, and legs. I turned back to the
tree and ran faster, my dress tangling between my legs as the fog and icy
wind blew against my skin.
The parking lot is the other way! my mind screamed. The other way
was cut off by a mountain of ice. I felt as if I was being herded. By ice?
I slipped on the icy ground, falling face first into the frost. Ice crept up
my toes and along my legs. I thrashed and screamed. I felt the fog
becoming a solid mass above me, pinning me to the ground. The ice piled
around me. Am I going to be buried alive?
I dug my nails into the frigid snow in front of me and tried to claw my
way out of the frosted death trap. I was so panicked I didn’t feel it when my
nails broke against the impenetrable wall of ice, leaving red crescents of
blood welling up on sensitive skin. An hysterical sob worked its way out of
my throat as I gouged red lines into the ice. The ice was above my knees,
snaking its way up my thighs. I shivered.
Shivering’s good, I reminded myself. It means your body hasn’t given
up…yet. The cold was painful, like a thousand little knives pricking my skin.
A violent tremor went up my spine, sending waves of pain through me.
“Help me!” I screamed, knowing it was futile. I was going to die here.
Except I couldn’t die. Could I? Mom said I was immortal, but was that
all-inclusive? Did I have a weakness? Was snow my Kryptonite? If I got
hurt, would I heal or would I be trapped in an injured body in pain forever?
I suddenly didn’t know if immortality was a good thing or a bad thing.
The cold hurt. I was kicking, screaming, and clawing my way out of the
frost, but for every inch I gained a mountain piled around me. I thought I
heard a man’s laughter on the wind, the sound somehow colder than the
ice freezing me into place.
The ground before my outstretched hand trembled. The shaking
increased. The earth lurched beneath me. The surface cracked and the
sound was so loud that for a moment all I could hear was high-pitched
ringing in my ears. The ground split into an impossibly deep crevice. My
voice went hoarse from screaming as I peered into the endless abyss,
trapped and unable to move away from the vertigo-inducing edge.
