Summary

Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike, when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld. But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand. Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met, and fell in love, and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon in the throes of the Trojan War. Learn how their children - Hypnos, Thanatos, Megaera, Tisiphone, Alecto, and Melinoe - came into being. Discover why they were assigned their respective duties as Sleep, Death, the Furies, and the Goddess of Ghosts. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods. This prequel to The Gatekeeper's Saga is more than a retelling of the Persephone myth. Many more of the ancient myths are woven together to reveal the conflict, tension, and relationships among the gods, in one of the most beloved pantheons in human history. The Gatekeeper's Bride can be listened to before or after The Gatekeeper's Saga, but listeners might find more enjoyment from it after having met the characters, by listening to the saga first.

Good Read

Persephone (Underwold Saga #0) was a good read by Eva Pohler. Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness that causes unrest among the gods. Persephone proposes to conspire with him against Demeter. This book shows how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love. I enjoyed this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Things aren’t always as they appear

I’ve read the Underworld series and have to say, I think I’m glad I saved this one for last. Of course, it would be good before the series also. I have gotten so attached to this couple and their children. It’s hard to write a review without spoiling the parts in the series about the couple. We learn more about how this all turns out in the other books. I was very moved by how much in love Persephone and Hades were then a tragic deed is done to Persephone and Hades gets the blame. But is he guilty? The evidence seems pretty clear. Persephone isn’t sure and when her children are affected, she can’t help but seem to become sort of distant to him. And with gods and goddesses surrounding you it seems hopeless. After all, they can be so harsh and wicked.

If you like audiobooks, pick this one up. The narrator is wonderful and very talented with the voices.
