When her mom tells her, Persephone is sure her mother has lost her mind. It isn't until Boreas, the god of winter, tries to abduct her that she realizes her mother was telling the truth. I felt as if I was being herded. By ice? I slipped on the icy ground, falling face first into the frost. Ice crept up my toes and along my legs. I thrashed and screamed. I felt the fog becoming a solid mass above me, pinning me to the ground.
The ice piled around me. Am I going to be buried alive? I dug my nails into the frigid snow in front of me and tried to claw my way out of the frosted death trap.
An hysterical sob worked its way out of my throat as I gouged red lines into the ice. The ice was above my knees, snaking its way up my thighs. I shivered. The cold was painful, like a thousand little knives pricking my skin. A violent tremor went up my spine, sending waves of pain through me. I was going to die here. Could I? Mom said I was immortal, but was that all-inclusive?
Did I have a weakness?
Was snow my Kryptonite? If I got hurt, would I heal or would I be trapped in an injured body in pain forever? The cold hurt. I was kicking, screaming, and clawing my way out of the frost, but for every inch I gained a mountain piled around me. The ground before my outstretched hand trembled. The shaking increased.
The earth lurched beneath me. The surface cracked and the sound was so loud that for a moment all I could hear was high-pitched ringing in my ears. The ground split into an impossibly deep crevice.
My voice went hoarse from screaming as I peered into the endless abyss, trapped and unable to move away from the vertigo-inducing edge. Persephone Myth: In the original Persephone myth, Kore, the goddess of Spring, was a beautiful goddess and would have had many suiters had her mother, Demeter, goddess of agriculture, not kept her hidden away from the other gods. One day Kore went to a meadow to pick narcissus flowers, lilacs, poppies, or some other flower depending on the source with some nymphs when Hades, God of the Underworld spotted her and decided he wanted her for his wife.
He burst through the earth in some versions, Gaia, goddess of Earth assists him in his creepy black chariot of death, and dragged Kore into the Underworld. At first Zeus told Demeter she should be pleased to have such a high ranking son-in-law, but eventually he relented since too many people were starving to worship him properly, and sent Hermes to liberate Persephone so long as she had not consumed food or drink in he Underworld. Ascalapus got turned into a screech owl in retribution for his crime, and Persephone was forced to return to the Underworld for a month every year for each seed she ate.
While she is home with her mother, plants grow, but during her time in the Underworld every year they die. This myth is considered an explanation for winter.
Why did her name change? Changing a gods name to reflect a change in their divine role was not uncommon.

Kore translated to girl, or maiden. Persephone has a variety of other names and titles within her cult the Eleusinian Mysteries. Why a pomegranate?Will Hades ever admit his feelings for her? In the chaos, the demigods have risen up, blaming the gods for their misfortune. The pomegranate is known as the fruit of the dead as well as a symbol for fertility, and thanks to the little crown on the top of a pomegranate is a symbol of royalty.
Was snow my Kryptonite? Despite her growing feelings for Hades, Persephone wants to return to the living realm.
Gods and Goddesses are different in this series as much as they are the same. And that's how the story truly starts taking shape. The ground split into an impossibly deep crevice. How to write a great review.
I can't wait to see what Persephone has in store!
