The Shadow Prince
The first book in Despain's Into the Dark trilogy is a modern retelling of the Persephone myth. Haden Lord is the disgraced son of the King of Hades. Desperate to redeem himself, his mission is to entice a girl to come to Hades willingly as a "Boon," breeding stock for the all-male Underrealm. Daphne Raines has moved to Olympus Hills, California with her estranged rock-star father in the hopes of making it as a singer. Haden and Daphne are destined for each other and know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails. To save themselves they must rewrite their destinies and change the fate of both their worlds.
