About the Author

Emily Whitman's first novel, Radiant Darkness, was praised for its "originality and flair" by BCCB and was a #1 IndieBound Pick. The author lives with her family in Portland, Oregon.


Gr 9 Up-Persephone describes her confining life with her overbearing mother, her growing passion for mysterious and charismatic Hades, and a difficult choice that reverberates far beyond her own existence. A romantic, compelling, and sensual coming-of-age story. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
