I love the second person voice in the first section of this volume: "Know this first: you are dead. You no longer have a body." From here we are led through Hades' underworld to experience all its horrors and meet its doomed inhabitants. We then hear the story of Demeter and her daughter Persephone and the suffering Hades causes them and all of humankind as a result of his ruthless abduction. In this version, Persephone (known as "Kore" on earth) falls for Hades and their relationship is more sensuous than other versions. Still, her return to the earth and the explanation of the seasons are the core concepts. The artwork, like the others in this series, is gripping.
