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.

The Daughters of Zeus, Book One

"Persephone is a fun, imaginative, smart retelling of my favorite myth, fusing modern culture with a rich world of magic." Amazon Top Reviewer, Molly Ringle, Author of Persephone's Orchard.

One day Persephone is an ordinary high school junior working at her mom's flower shop in Athens, Georgia. The next she's fighting off Boreas, the brutal god of Winter, and learning that she's a bonafide goddess--a rare daughter of the now-dead Zeus. Her goddess mom whisks her off to the Underworld to hide until Spring.

There she finds herself under the protection of handsome Hades, the god of the dead, and she's automatically married to him. It's the only way he can keep her safe. Older, wiser, and far more powerful than she, Hades isn't interested in becoming her lover, at least not anytime soon. But every time he rescues her from another of Boreas' schemes, they fall in love a little more. Will Hades ever admit his feelings for her?

Can she escape the grasp of the god of Winter's minions? The Underworld is a very nice place, but is it worth giving up her life in the realm of the living? Her goddess powers are developing some serious, kick-butt potential. She's going to fight back.

"I enjoyed Hades and Persephone's sweet romantic relationship. Persephone has her flaws, but she is likable and learns along the way. The author's writing is descriptive and entertaining. I am looking forward to the next book." Rebecca Foote @ Paranormal Muse

"Everyone needs to check this book out, I can't rave enough about it, Bevis is definitely a new talent to keep an eye out for. I give this 5/5." Sarah Brown @ Head Stuck in a Book

"I found this book to be a fun and fast-paced adventure through Greek mythology with a modern twist." Stephanie Ward @ A Dream Within a Dream

"From the first paragraph, I was enthralled with this story. I read it all in one sitting and enjoyed every minute of it. What a great spin on a Greek myth! Move over Rick Riordan!" Amazon Top Reviewer, Rita Webb, Author of Daughter of the Goddess

"This story will completely suck you in . . . This book is the first of a trilogy, and I can't wait to see what's in store for these amazing characters." Amazon Top Reviewer, Melissa Groeling, Author of Beauty Marks

Kaitlin Bevis spent her childhood curled up with a book and a pen. If the ending didn't agree with her, she rewrote it. Because she's always wanted to be a writer, she spent high school and college learning everything she could to achieve that goal. After graduating college with a BFA and Masters in English, Kaitlin went on to write The Daughters of Zeus series. kaitlinbevis.com
""Bevis has done a wonderful job building the worlds that the gods occupy as well as giving them a place in the modern world." Amazon Top Reviewer and author, Margaret Lesh

"I stayed up way too late, again! I had to know what happened! You might call me irresponsible, and that may be true. But when a series comes along and grabs you like Daughters of Zeus, it really can't be helped." Amazon Top Reviewer and author, Rachel Wagner

"I need to calm down before I write this review because I am still reeling from the book. OMG! I thought book 1: Persephone was good, but this was WAY BETTER! Lastly, OMG!!! I need book 3 so badly . . ." Amazon Top Reviewer and author, Mary Smith

The Daughters of Zeus Series, Book Two

Some vows can never be broken, especially when you've recently found out you're a goddess.

In the flick of a eyelash Persephone has gone from being a high school junior in Athens, Georgia to the wife of Hades, god of the Underworld. Under his platonic protection, she's waiting for springtime, when Boreas, the sinister god of winter, will stop stalking her.

But even Hades can't keep Boreas and his minions from threatening her. Finally she escapes back to the world of the living. Maybe she can just go back to normal--and forget that she's fallen in love with Hades.

She's wrong.



Thanatos--a friend from the Underworld, has betrayed her. Persephone can't tell anyone about Thanatos' betrayal, and it drives a wedge between her and Hades.

And then there's Aphrodite, the gorgeous goddess who was born among the ocean waves with more charm than she can control. Persephone's dearest ally, Melissa, is furious and jealous when Aphrodite starts winning Persephone's friendship. Persephone turns to a human boy for friendship. But will their relationship put him in danger?

Persephone must choose between her human life and her responsibilities as a goddess. If she doesn't, she could lose that life and Hades, too.

But either way, she may not survive her father's schemes. After all, she's Zeus's daughter.
