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 first day at college. Adrian, the mysterious young
man who brought her there, simply wants her to taste a pomegranate.
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. (Goodreads Synopsis)
Persephone's Orchard is an interesting read and the only reason it took me a while to get through it was because I was still busy unpacking after moving house.
I really enjoyed the premise of the story and liked the way Ringle wove the original myths into a fresh new tale. Adrian and Sophia are great characters and on the whole I found their blooming relationship believable. The pacing of this book was good and there was plenty of action and advancement of the plot and characters.
I would definitely be interested in reading on in this series.
For the first two weeks after release, the e-book is available for just $0.99, so hurry and check it out while you can pick up a copy for this amazing price.
I received this book as a free review copy from the publisher.
