Overview

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. 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. Molly Ringle's growing list of other succesful titles include:The Chrysomelia Stories1. Persephone's Orchard 2. Underworld's Daughter 3. Immortal's Spring The Goblins of Bellwater All the Better Part of Me Lava Red Feather Blue Sage and King

Reviews

"Molly's artfulness in setting patterns of relationships and events in ways that illuminate each other, create foreshadowing and dramatic tension is an especially enjoyable element of the book." —Still Seeking Allies 

Author Biography

Molly Ringle was one of the quiet, weird kids in school, and is now one of the quiet, weird writers of the world. She likes thinking up innovative romantic obstacles and mixing them with topics like Greek mythology, ghost stories, fairy tales, or regular-world scandalous gossip. She's into mild rainy climates, gardens, '80s new wave music, chocolate, tea, and perfume (or really anything that smells good). She has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of her life, aside from grad school in California and one work-abroad season in Edinburgh in the 1990s. Molly Ringle became fascinated with the colorful weirdness of the Greek myths when she was a kid, and after writing several other novels of love and the paranormal, she finally wrote the Persephone-and-Hades story that had been evolving in her head all those years. It turned into a three-book series, much to her own surprise (The Chrysomelia Stories). Mollie currently lives in Seattle with her husband, kids, guinea pigs, corgi, and a lot of moss. Her growing list of succesful titles include:The Chrysomelia Stories1. Persephone's Orchard 2. Underworld's Daughter 3.
