If you are a Greek mythology fan you will love this book. Learn the actual stories of the gods who once ruled over the world in this cool graphic novel form.

O'Connor once again surprises with a teen-oriented, more relatable take on the Persephone fable. The spooky Hades tends to remain a cypher in retellings of the Olympus myths, but O'Connor manages to make him believable as a character as well.

Really good series. Its nice to see this particular myth show a bit of Persephone's point of view. O'Connor did a really good job, can't wait for the next one!

This entire series by O'conner is excellent. Not just an excellent graphic depiction of greek mythos, but simply good telling of the greek mythos overall.This series is perfect for the child first exploring greek mythology, and for the adult who wants to revisit these myths. The myths are made understandable, but they are not as watered down as they normally are. O'conner does an amazing job balancing the content of the myths within a PG level story so that you really don't lose much of the original story. The conversation is good, it feels real, and has nuggets of other myths inside it. Even if you disagree with his interpretations I think you'll enjoy the work. Read them.

If Hades kidnapped your daughter wouldn't you take away the beauty of nature to get her back?
