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 like a normal teen. There is just too much going on, and she is running herself ragged, not to mention setting herself up to be easy pickings for Zeus. Daughter of Earth and Sky is about Persephone, because her father is Zeus, God of the sky, and her mom is Demeter, God of the earth. Not to mention her marriage to Hades, giving her power in the Underworld, making her the most powerful God alive. Kaitlin Bevis weaves traditional mythology with a contemporary setting and romance that ends up being cute and endearing.

Daughter of Earth and Sky is a different take on the recent stories that have been published featuring the Gods and mythology. It is focused more towards the female reader, but at the same time it has enough mythology in it to interest a wide range of readers. The tenderness and interactions between Persephone and Hades are a joy to read. Kaitlin Bevis has done a great job of making this story feel like it could actually be happening in real life. I was filled with the need to find the next book in the series when I finished this book. I needed more. Young adult readers and even older readers will enjoy this book.
