Dazzling Brightness 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. TheBooknerd on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago Much as I adore the Persephone-Hades myth -- indeed, it's one of my favorite stories -- I did not enjoy this this book at all.
Twice now I've sat down to read it, twice now I gave up in profound annoyance. Something about Gellis's writing style -- the thick, overly romanticized quality -- bothered me so much that it persistently distracted me from the story. I tried to like this, I really did. Until I accepted that I shouldn't have to try. We see the transformation of Kore, the sheltered daughter of the Corn Goddess, into the powerful goddess Persephone.
We also see the interaction of Olympian rivalries most vividly in this book - Zeus versus Poseidon, Poseidon versus Hades, Demeter versus Zeus and Hades. For me, the love story in this book also worked most compellingly. By the end, when Hades and Persephone come to terms with her mother Demeter, I could believe that this was a couple that was truly in love, and that they fully deserved each other.
Roberta Gellis is a gem of a writer. Yes, he kidnaps her, with the conniving of Zeus; no, he doesn't rape her. Gellis's Greek gods aren't, really. They are another race of humans: taller, stronger, much longer-lived - AND they are mages, each with unique inborn Gifts. Hades can pass himself and anyone he is carrying through solid rock, as well as melt rock and move it. The people in his Underworld aren't actually dead - they are the outcasts who have been driven away from their villages and homes, for various reasons.
Hades' underground realm is both dazzling and dangerous, full of jewels and crystal, but also wild beasts, a foul? There is also the danger of starvation; Hades' people till the ground in some secret valleys, but without a priestess of the Mother to bless the fields, they will not bear the amount of grain required to feed the population. Demeter has long been blessing the fields of Olympus to similar purpose, but deprived of her daughter, she rebels.
Now Olympus is in danger of collapse, and despite his strength and powers, Hades cannot withstand all of the other mages, combined.
