But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.Henry's first wife, Persephone 

Why I'm Stoked:  

I really enjoyed how unique the first story was. A lot of reviewers put a lot of stock into the facts when it comes to authors writing about Greek Gods. I personally find that when writing fiction its all about the authors imagination and where they go with it. Even though this is based off of the Greek Myth of Hades and Persephone, Aimee Carter has definitely put her own spin on it as it should be considering I don't want to read the same thing. I am looking forward to where the story goes! Be on the lookout for my review this week!

I like your note about an author's imagination making an old story new. It's always the case, isn't it? This sounds promising. I'm looking forward to your ultimate review! See what I'm reading this week?? :]
