Among my many obsessions is myths, legends, and folklore. I even named my eldest child after my mythology professor. So the recent trend in fractured fairytales and myth retellings has me going to extremes when it comes to authors. Some, I love, adore, think are gifts from the gods themselves (Jessica Day George) and some I want to drag out into the street and shoot (Tannith Lee).
When I heard about a retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth, I shoved teens in skinny jeans out of my way to get my hands on it. Maybe I should have read a few more reviews first. (My review is here.)
Here's the Teaser:
"By then I was too deeply dug into my real-life glass coffin to care anymore--about her, about the evil I'd promised to protect her from, or even the fact that everyone thought I was crazy.
It wasn't until the following year that I realized what a mess I'd made of everything.
By then it was too late for Hannah, of course."
-pg 87, Abandon by Meg Cabot
