Some vows can never be broken.

Persephone thought she could go back to her normal life after returning from the Underworld. She was wrong.
The goddess Aphrodite is born among the waves with more charm than she can control. Zeus is stalking Persephone and her loved ones, and Thanatos is no longer content with Persephone’s silence.

He wants her soul.

Persephone can’t tell anyone about Thanatos’ betrayal, and it drives a wedge between her and Hades. Her mother is still keeping secrets, and Melissa’s jealousy of Aphrodite threatens to tear their friendship apart.
Alone, Persephone turns to a human boy for comfort. But will their relationship put him in danger?
Sacrifices must be made, and Persephone must choose between her human life and her responsibilities as a goddess. If she doesn’t, she could lose them both.
But will either life be worth choosing once Zeus is through with her?

This book was simply amazing  I was pulled in from the beginning and I just couldn't stop reading. In fact, I ended up reading this in less than five hours! Persephone was good, but Daughter of the Earth and Sky was even better! Normally the first novels are usually the best in the series because the author puts more effort into them, but I felt that this book outweighed the original in many departments!

I loved the deeper relationship between Persephone and Hades in this book, and I watched it blossom into something amazing. I found myself smiling along many of the times that they were together. This story was jam packed with action, so it wasn't just a typical young adult romance book. I found myself yearning to find out what happened next and I just had to keep reading.

Persephone finds herself isolated in this book, but her character grows from this. She learns to accept and love her friends and family. Zeus also makes an appearance, and I never really found myself hating him until this book. Can't he just leave Persephone alone? Overall, I found this book enthralling and I cannot wait until the sequel comes out!
