Hades and Persephone had a daughter!

(book info copied from Goodreads.com)
Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He's afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld's daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely. 

That is, until Chrys decides she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims her father is just over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There's no way that the gods will notice she's there for only a couple of days...right?

my thoughts

I liked this book.  It was quirky and fun.  I don't care for some of the language. It's not necessary to drop the 'f bomb' to get a point across.  I also don't care for the character of Persephone.  The story of Hades and Persephone has always been one of my favorite Greek mythology stories.  Hades, in my opinion, was one of the best of the Greek gods.  He got a bad rap because he was the god of death, but he was the most honest, and faithful of the gods.

Chrys is the daughter of Hades and Persephone. She is the strongest goddess of them all, She has the combined power of both Hades and Persephone.  She's stuck in the underworld because of her power.  Well, you can imagine what happens.  A young teenager who wants to see the world.  She and two friends escape the underworld and end up in London.  What happens is definitely worth a read!

This is the first of a series.  I'll be looking forward to the next book in the series.
