GHBT- Blog Tour- Audiobook Review- Daughter of the Earth and Sky by Kaitlin Bevis

Daughter of the Earth and Sky
Daughters of Zeus Book # 2 
By Kaitlin Bevis
Genre-YA Paranormal 

Some vows can never be broken.

Persephone thought she could go back to her normal life after returning from the Underworld. She was wrong. 

The goddess Aphrodite is born among the waves with more charm than she can control. Zeus is stalking Persephone and her loved ones, and Thanatos is no longer content with Persephone's silence.

He wants her soul.

Persephone can't tell anyone about Thanatos' betrayal, and it drives a wedge between her and Hades. Her mother is still keeping secrets, and Melissa's jealousy of Aphrodite threatens to tear their friendship apart.

Alone, Persephone turns to a human boy for comfort. But will their relationship put him in danger? 

Sacrifices must be made, and Persephone must choose between her human life and her responsibilities as a goddess. If she doesn't, she could lose them both.

But will either life be worth choosing once Zeus is through with her?
Daughter of the Earth and Sky is the second novel in the Daughters of Zeus series by Kaitlin Bevis. As you saw from my review of book 1, Persephone (and if you missed it, it's HERE), I am already a huge fan of these books. Daughter of the Earth and Sky doesn't disappoint in the excitement and suspense left from book 1! This one has far more twists and complexity, it's not just a twist on Persephone and Hades anymore, which makes it really difficult to review. I kind of want to insert all the overly excited gifs and say "there. People who have read this will understand my insanity."

I can tell you I am still highly impressed with Bevis's writing style. She has a smooth, flowing way of doing things and I find it very easy to step into the story. And as for the audiobook, I believe this one was done much better than the first! I didn't notice as much stuttering or quick-speaking, but she continued to add her snark and attitude to her dialogue, which made me laugh out loud on many occasions!

If you can believe it I think I like this novel even more than the first. She has made the story exciting and didn't fall to the curse of horrible sequels! I'm very impressed and let me just say-- very glad I have book 3 now....otherwise I might be looking for her house at this point...

My Rating:

Kaitlin Bevis spent her childhood curled up with a book, and a pen. If the ending didn't agree with her, she rewrote it. She's always wanted to be a writer, and spent high school and college learning everything she could so that one day she could achieve that goal. She graduated college with my BFA in English with a concentration in Creative Writing, and is pursuing her masters at the University of Georgia.

Her young adult series "Daughters of Zeus" is available wherever ebooks are sold. She also writes for truuconfessions.com and Athens Parent Magazine.
