I’ve read other books by Julia Barrett, so I was eager to start Daughters of Persephone. I commend Ms. Barrett for the time and devotion in creating a realistic sci-fi world with its own terms and rules. You are pulled into the realism of a new world and kept there by the larger than life characters.

Lee Anne - OMG! Spring is Finally Here!
Two cute stories about women of the blood. They are genetically engineered but feared by the men in power. They are sent into exile to live. Many years later the resistance is formed and the women of the blood come out of exile to lead the war to freedom.

There's some romance, but nothing explicit. It mostly deals with the resistance and how the women of the blood are so different from everyone else.

I plan to finish the series!

Another brilliant read by Julia Barrett!

If you like sci-fi romance, this one won't disappoint you. It's fun, sexy, and well plotted.

Bravo!
