Why this book?

I read the first book of the series

What I thought

This book frustrated the shit out of me. Did the storyline with the human boy really need to happen? It just made me pissed off even though it’s explained at the end. Also why is Aphrodite such a superficial bitch? Persephone continued to be annoying. Hades was the only saving grace, he was swoonworthy as ever. Oh and of course it had to end up with a cliffhanger so I have to read the 3rd book. FML

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 sli

New Character:


She had a bubbly personality and was always between happy and confused. She wasn't afraid or reluctant to let "humans" know she's superior to them (to the point she wouldn't pay for the things she grabbed because she saw it as an "offering"). At first I thought she was very naive, she didn't even know ho

This is the second book in the series and leaves off where the first ended. I have to say I really love how Kaitlin Bevis spins Hades and plays around a bit with Greek Mythology. This story is a true gem and took some serious talent to be able to write. I thoroughly enjoyed the read! 4.5 charmed stars for Daughter of the Earth and Sky (Daughters of Zeus, #2).

Poor Persephone has more to deal with than just her insane father trying to get her now. She has to deal with her feelings for Hades who s

When Kaitlin asked if I would read Daughter of the Earth and Sky you know I said yes! Especially after reading Persephone and LOVING it! I wanted to know what was going on with Persephone and Hades and all the other characters. This series just getting better and better!

I must admit, when I started this book, I was a little nervous because Im not a big fan of second books in the series like this- especially when its about the same characters- because for some reason authors think its fun to screw up our favorite relationships. Take the Hush-Hush and HON series for example. I usually try to stay away from the second, and sometimes third, books in a series.

But, despite all the warnings in my head, I read it. And I... LOVED it! I downed it in just a few hours. Ye

This is the second book in the Daughters of Zeus series. I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley. The third book in the series, The Iron Queen, came out in June of 2015. I have really been enjoying this series; I love the take on mythology and have really enjoyed the characters and the Underworld.

This book picks up where the last left off. Persephone has returned to the surface and is struggling to try and get back to her normal teenage life. However, the fact that Thanatos is betr
I got a copy for review in exchange for an honest review.

When I started this book I doubted that it could be better than the first book, because in the first book Persephone learns about who she is and I had no idea how this book could top that. I was wrong, this book was even better than the first book!

Now Persephone knows who she is the story focuses more on new problems and Persephone struggling with the consequences of a decision she made at the end of book 1. I really liked where the story

I love the first book in this series and I was ecstatic when I received Daughter of Earth and Sky to review. If you follow my reviews at all, you know that I am a big fan of mythology and a huge fan of Hades. So, safe to say that this book is right up my alley.

A lot of things that were started in the first book (Persephone) came to a head in Daughter of Earth and Sky, things that I was really excited to see the resolution to and Bevis didn't disappoint. This novel is full of emotional highs and

I'm kind of bummed that I didn't quite enjoy Daughter of the Earth and Sky as much as Persephone . It was still a pretty good book, but I think I started nitpicking at a few things that bugged me, and then that was all I could think about.

Persephone's attitude in the beginning of the book bugged me. Maybe that's what contributed to my iffy feelings about the book—I didn't start off on great terms with her. Sometimes Persephone was just a bit stupid

I loved the first book of this series, Persephone, so I had high hopes for the sequel. I wasn't disappointed. This series is such a fun read! It combines interesting teenage drama with the fantastical and fascinating world of the Greek gods. Even if you aren't a fan of the old Greek stories like The Odyssey (I teach it,'s not my favorite), this is different. Like the Percy Jackson series (which I loved), this series allows you to experience the wonder and intrigue of the gods - a ...more

My name is Kimber Leigh and I'm a mythology addict. Greek, Roman, Norse, Celtic; doesn't really matter, I love it all. My favorite pair has always been Hades and Persephone. It irks me that Hades tends to be portrayed as a villain. Perhaps this is part of the reason I like this series so much. Far and away, my favorite of the three books is the first, Persephone.

Going back to normal? Not for Persephone! Having to choose between a human life and one of a goddess is not an ideal situation especially with all of the turmoil of the immortal world.

I absolutely adore books about Greek mythology and this once certainly doesn’t disappoint! The complexities between Persephone and Hades are enjoyably sexy and Hades is scrumptious! It is great in this book how Persephone can focus on all of the problems she is faced with because she now knows who she is. This is

More than anything, I sincerely loathe cliff-hangers. LOATHE them. The way this book ended made me want to scream and rip my hair out. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Jesus. Okay, okay. Okay. Let me chill out for a moment here.

Okay, so this was the second book after 'Persephone', where Kora/Persephone ends up going down to the Underworld after being saved by Hades and ends up marrying him. Well, there's all sorts of crazy happening in the Underworld and on the surface. Zeus is crazy. Like, bat

Picking up where Persephone, Book 1 of the Daughters of Zeus Series, left off, Daughter of the Earth and Sky jumps right into the action with Persephone getting a handle on her new powers while trying to live in both worlds--the human world she grew up in and the world of the gods.

In book 1, she dealt with villainous Boreas, became wife of Hades, and learned to fit in as Queen of the Underworld while maintaining her high school life/challenges. In book 2, she meets goddess Aphrodite and the two

Well if the first installment was anything to go by i should have know that book two was going to be way better.

Continue the story of Persephone and Hades and it is just great to see the trials and tribulations that they have to go, the separation that Zeus forces on Persephone allows us to see her mature into the Goddess she suppose to be, we also meet a new character Aphrodite; and wow her tale is tragic, bound to be a puppet and obey everyone in her family line above her own power, it gives a

This is a great second book.

Persephone and Hades' relationship is progressing so well. I ship them. I also really hate Joel/Zeus. Joel was a silly little boy. Why would you even let that get so far, when you have the god of death lusting/loving after you?

I love the way familial loyalty is played out (and not recognized by the gods, but by Persephone).

Thanatos, NO! There could've been hope. And then there wasn't.

It started off as not that interesting to me. I was saddened by the thought that the sequel wouldn't fulfill my desire for how I would have liked the story continue but I was so wrong. It picked up with more interesting details and a few moments of romance to fulfill the somewhat hopeless romantic in me. I loved every single interaction Persephone had with Hades. Everything she went through put my stomach in knots and made me feel sorry for her but it certainly kept me reading. I would definitel ...more

I love retellings of myths where you get so many details about the gods personalities. I have a very obvious addiction to Greek mythology, took uni classes on it and everything. It didn't focus a lot on hades & Persephone but when it did - it showed another dimension of the characters. Quite frankly Persephone's fight or flight instinct must ...more

All her life Persephone thought she was a normal teenager, now she has found out she is really a God and married to one of the best looking Gods around, Hades. Problem is that Zeus, who happens to be her father, is hunting her down. Of course she is also dealing with this thing that mostly the Gods marry for power and not for love, and she is not really sure what is going on with her and Hades. To top that all off she still wants to try to finish her senior year lik

It's been a while since I read 'Persephone', book 1 in the series but it was one of those books that had stayed with me, for as soon as I started to read this one this morning - everything came back quickly and easily and I was straight back into that world.

Persephone is recovering from the events of book 1 and wonders what else could be thrown her way. Surely she can enjoy being 'normal' for a while, right? No such luck. Once more she must battle with gods, charms and lies.
