radiant darkness by Emilie whitman

Radiance darkness

official resume :
He smiles. "Hello."
It's a deep voice. I can feel it reverberate in my chest and echo all the way down to my toes.
I know I should leave, but I don't want to. I want to keep my senses like this forever. I'm all eye, all ear, all skin.
Persephone lives in the most gorgeous place in the world. But her mother's a goddess, as overprotective as she is powerful. Paradise has become a trap. Just when Persephone feels there's no chance of escaping the life that's been planned for her, a mysterious stranger arrives. A stranger who promises something more—something dangerous and exciting—something that spurs Persephone to make a daring choice. A choice that could destroy all she's come to love, even the earth itself.
In a land where a singing river can make you forget your very name, Persephone is forced to discover who—and what—she really is.

My resume: persephone lives in a valley with the most beautiful scenerie but shes not happy shes been stuck in this valley her whole life and her mom still treats her like a child in this valley there is no man and talking about man could get her friends thrown out of the vally for vulgar behaviour when her mom leaves for another of her "jobs"witch persephone is not aloud to attend a mysterious man apears for the second time in the valley then some roman starts to act up and so starts the story


radiance darkness was one of those books that everytime I went to the library the name interested me and every time I deicided to read something else boy was I wrong  to do that I really liked this book it was a  retelling of and old myth about the gods but the godess turned into something cool and fully romantic

the way the author describes hades is amazing in this story hes not just the usual evil manipulative god of of the dead but hes a romantic and hot god of the dead  that cares deeply for his queen I absolutely adored it  this book has romance life aspect and nature as in that persephone  loves nature  and do I to so I enjoyed that also

even though as I mentioned it was based on a myth it was very creative I would definately read the next book if there was one the plot line was interesting and the book was a definite page turner

i would give this book 4 stars out of five

good reading

  1. I don't think I've read too many books based on Greek myths yet. I will have to check this one out ^.^
