He offered her more than a throne.
More than the Underworld.
He offered her a love that would withstand the test of time.
Maiden, Daughter, Goddess of Spring. She has many names and none of them fit. Kore lives her life in a gilded cage, loved by all but understood by none.
When Hades appears out of the darkness with promises of midnight and glory on his tongue, he offers her a kingdom. Lays eternity at her feet. Bids her eat and drink from the land of the dead. The ichor tastes bitter, but she’s never felt such a thrilling sting.
Then he calls her a new name. Persephone.
Bringer of Death.
But the gods want them separated, and few can trick the Olympians. Of course she eats the pomegranate. He offers it to her with a promise to lay the world at her feet. But she only wants him…
For fans of Circe, Shadow & Bone, and Serpent & Dove, you’ll fall head over heels with this twist on the classic myth.
