Synoposis: New immortals are being created for the first time in thousands of years thanks to the tree of immortality discovered by Persephone and Hades. But Sophie Darrow is not one of them. Nikolaos, the trickster, has given the last ripe immortality fruit to two others, the reincarnations of the gods Dionysos and Hekate: Tabitha and Zoe, currently Sophie’s and Adrian’s best friends. While the disappointed Sophie struggles to remember Hekate and Dionysos from ancient Greece, she must still face her daily life as a mortal university freshman. Tabitha and Zoe have their own struggles as they come to terms with being newly immortal and their own haunting dreams of past lives and loves. The evil committed by Thanatos invades all of them in heartbreaking memories, and worse still, Sophie and her friends know their enemies are determined to kill again. And even the gods can’t save everyone.
Okay, let’s start with that gorgeous cover! Beautiful. Right?!
Underworld’s Daughter is the second book in The Chrysomelia Stories. The book picks up shortly after the end of Persephone’s Orchard. Sophie and Adrian are happy, but Sophie is still not immortal, especially after Nikolaos gives the last fruit from the Tree of Immortality to Tabitha and Zoe, Sophie’s and Adrian’s best friends.
