Editor's Note: Most people would think that being a mythical god/goddess would be a wonderful thing, but even the gods had family drama.
Such an amazing story! I felt like I was on the adventure of a lifetime!
Book Description: Mythology and contemporary life collide when a woman discovers that she is the latest embodiment of a goddess who escaped from the underworld centuries ago. Hades sill hunts for her but times have changed and she's done running.

Author's Inspiration: I was disappointed with the powerlessness that described Persephone when she was abducted by Hades in the original Persephone mythology. This is a reimagination of this mythology. The positive change in attitude towards I have witnessed towards women in the last 25years in society....and two hundred beautiful acres in South Carolina bordering a large lake that has seen the history of America unfold from the Native Americans to the early colonists and slaves up to the present day.
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Teresa Palmer
From the Book: High above them on the wooded hillside, the seeker scrambled to its feet, tense and alert. The wind ruffled its black fur. It stretched stiffly. Something was different. It sniffed the air again to be sure. It had been here so long, its purpose almost forgotten, but the scent, stronger now, stirred the creature, and it quivered with excitement. A low growl rumbled in its chest. Eager to alert the collector, it turned and quietly picked its way along the path through the trees to the opening in the rocks. It paused one last time to taste the air swirling up from the falls, then ducked its shaggy head through the entrance, shifted its shape, and slipped through the opening in the earth. The seeker was positive. The memory, although old, was strong.
She was back.
