A swoonworthy retelling!
A fantastic retelling of Hades and Persephone, but not as you've seen them before. Hades didn't exactly kidnap Persephone - she ran away to Hell and demand... READ MORE

Burn down the patriarchy with flowers and empathy

Synopsis

To hell with love, this goddess has other plans... Thousands of years ago, the gods told a lie: how Persephone was a pawn in the politics of other gods. How Hades kidnapped Persephone to be his bride. How her mother, Demeter, was so distraught she caused the Earth to start dying. The real story is much more interesting. Persephone wasn't taken to hell: she jumped. There was no way she was going to be married off to some smug god more in love with himself than her. Now all she has to do is convince the Underworld's annoyingly sexy, arrogant and frankly rude ruler, Hades, to fall in line with her plan. A plan that will shake Mount Olympus to its very core. But consequences can be deadly, especially when you're already in hell.
