Book Description

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?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kaitlin Bevis has taken the well-known Hades and Persephone myth and made it her own. She has taken this myth and crafted it into a beautiful love story that you will wholeheartedly root for from beginning to end...this is honestly one of the best twists on Greek mythology I have ever read." ~ Readers Live a Thousand Lives
"Overall, this story was the perfect sequel to Persephone: it is fast-paced, with added action, suspense, tension, sacrifice and love, but most of all: more scary enemies lurking in the shadows." ~ Prosperpine Craves Reviews
"A thoroughly satisfying middle book! I love the twist at the end, and am looking forward to the final book and finding out how this all plays out!"  ~Reader's Dialogue
 "Kaitlin Bevis writes so descriptively that the reader feels physically and emotionally invested with every decision Persephone makes." ~ Between the Bind
"This book was simply amazing I was pulled in from the beginning and I just couldn't stop reading. Persephone was good, but Daughter of the Earth and Sky was even better! Normally the first novels are usually the best in the series because the author puts more effort into them, but I felt that this book outweighed the original in many departments!" ~ Ownestly Reviews

I was given this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I was thrilled to be given the second installment in the Persephone trilogy, as I absolutely loved the first book for the terrific, quirky characters, plays on mythology, and wonderful plots twists. I wasn't let down by the sequel. We start back off where we left off in Persephone, with a really big reveal (which I won't talk about to not spoil people). We get more of smoky, sexy, Hades (can always get more of him!) and a slinky, evil mastermind (again, which I will not name). But Persephone is bound by a promise, and she cannot reveal this evil to her husband. Not to mention, she's still a teenaged girl and has to navigate mortal things such as high school and jealous friends, and whoa, Aphrodite! Persephone's also personally under attack for unknown reasons, and we figure out a lot more of why in this installment.

All the strengths of the first novel remain. I don't have fictional crushes often, but I have to say, Hades is one sexy man. I do like that Bevis talks about the issues of him being WAY older and having more relationships (you may have more than one squick moment as I did reading about some of this) than Persephone ever has. I love that Persephone would actually communicate with her husband if she COULD, which is always my big beef when two young people could have staved off very tragic consequences if they just sat in the same room for half an hour and talked to each other.

As usual, I have one issue with this book. And that is, I still don't get the combination of people knowing about the Greek myths, but not really knowing about the Greek myths. I mean, Persephone seems to understand the allusions to Orpheus, Demeter, Hades, and her own name, so why was the creation of Aphrodite such a surprise?

Overall, a terrific addition to the series, and I can't wait to see the final chapter of this great trilogy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a great series December 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved the first book, so I was super excited when I got a copy of the second book. I really liked Persephone and Hades, so I couldn't wait to read more about the two of them. However, the last book ended with a few extra problems set up, so I knew it was not going to be smooth sailing for the two of them. And that turned out to be a bit of an understatement. There were tons of obstacles thrown at Persephone in this book. The Daughter of the Earth and Sky was a great addition to the Daughters of Zeus series. It solidified in my mind that this is a great YA Mythology series. One of the best ones that I have read so far.

Persephone is starting to come into her goddess powers, even though she is a bit young. And she is very powerful as both goddess of spring, and queen of the underworld. And throw in the Charm that her dad, Zeus bestowed upon her and she really is a force to be reckoned with. But the best part about her, is that she is such a sweetheart. She can be feisty sometimes, and just a tad stubborn, but she has such a kind and caring heart. She is so hard on herself sometimes. She feels awful about what happened with a certain god of the reapers in the first book. And she thinks Hades will hate her for it.

In this second installment in the Daughters of Zeus, we meet Aphrodite. She is an interesting character. I didn't always know quite what to make of her. I never really loved her, but then again I never really hated her. She is pretty complicated. Much more like the normal version of the aloof and kind of cold gods that I am used to.

There were plenty of adventure, and twists and turns throughout the story to hold your attention, and all sorts of fun new characters from greek myth. Plus, all of your favorite characters from the first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kaitlin Bevis does it again! February 4, 2013
By Jenna
Format:Kindle Edition
*Some minor spoilers from book one in this series, Persephone*

This book begins where the Persephone left off, we jump right into epic page turning (or Kindle clicking as it were). Persephone is still coming to terms with her new responsibilities as a Goddess and with her mother's dishonesty. Moreover, she is learning to balance being a wife to the Lord of the Underworld and a teenage girl with Goddess-size problems.

While reeling over her ignorance with her inadvertent promise to Thanatos, that stopped her from telling anyone about his treachery, Persephone pushes all who love her away. This lie festers throughout the story and we watch Persephone slowly fall apart piece by piece while putting on a brave face and working with those she is destined to hurt.

I loved the characterization in Persephone and DOTEAS shows much of the same. We are introduced to a new goddess, Aphrodite, who is all that she has ever been in Greek lore. Beautiful, ethereal, and a Goddess of pure charm. Being around someone so perfect gets even the most confident girl to question her security. There is also a new guy on the scene...but you have to read to find out more about him!

Our villans remain constant with a few more added. We hear more from Thanatos and finally meet Zeus who both remain simply hateable. Even more so if you can believe it. The Reapers are included Thanatos' plan thereby filling the preconception humans have of them. Finally, it seems to be that Persephone plays her own villan, working through personal demons being much more difficult than conquering external ones.

Kaitlin Bevis writes so descriptively that the reader feels physically and emotionally invested with every decision Persephone makes.
