    Summary

    Centuries later, when the stories were being widely told, it had been warped and twisted until she, the naive spring goddess Kore, had been ripped from the Earth and sunlight and tricked into eating pomegranate seeds that forced her to stay in the Underworld part of the year. In these stories, she was a victim being held hostage; childless, loveless, and cold. Warped telling and retelling - no doubt colored by the opinion the public held about her husband - had given her children to other parents, had made Hades disloyal, and had made her miserable. Luckily, Persephone knew the truth. She could make sure her children knew the truth as well. | a mythology reimagining of Hades and Persephone's life in the Underworld.

    Summary

    So she spoke, and Hypnos was pleased and spoke to her in answer: "Come then! Swear it to me on Styx's ineluctable water. With one hand take hold of the prospering earth, with the other take hold of the shining salt sea, so that all the undergods who gather about Kronos may be witnesses to us. Swear that you will give me one of the younger Kharites, Pasithea, the one whom all my days I have longed for."
    He spoke, nor failed to persuade the goddess Hera of the white arms, and she swore as he commanded, and called by their names on all those gods who live beneath the Pit, and who are called Titanes. (Iliad 14.231)

    Summary

    Hades knew without a doubt that there was a part of her he could never satisfy, for he was Death, the Darkness, the Underworld, and though he loved to forget while she was with him, there was a side of her that longed for sunshine, warmth and life.

    Summary

    An interlude before a turning event.

    “The usual. Chance and fate are just the same. Confusing as fuck and bitchy.” His voice snapped at the last word. If the blaspheme carried any weight, the temple of the Fates remained a stoic, damp outcrop. The boy sniffed. “You?”

    Crushed pomegranates flashed in her thoughts.

    “I don’t need babysitting.”
    “That’s not quite true, Emma,” Persephone purses her lips, humming. “My husband’s quite opposed to losing souls and I’d rather not deal with the fallout of you carting your pirate back across the Styx.
    “He’s quite pretty,” she smirks, chuckling. “Hades likes the pretty ones.”

    Summary

    The marriage of Hades and Persephone blossoms and their mysterious grove in the world below thrives…
    …while the sunlit world withers.

    Demeter holds out in Eleusis, pushing both mankind and the gods to frozen starvation in order to reclaim her daughter. The newly married rulers of the dead must reach an accord with Persephone’s mother to stay her deadly course— and come face to face with sacrifice, responsibility, and the balance of power among the gods.

    Destroyer of Light concludes the erotic romance begun in Receiver of Many: a battle of wills among the gods is writ large across the dying earth, a cruel sorcerer-king faces his trial, and the King and Queen of the Underworld realize a destiny that the Fates alone could have foreseen.
