a jar of secrets
"You're my little queen," he told me, gently placing the crown on top of my head. I giggled as I gestured for him to kneel down before me.

Seventeen-year-old Seph Callas has no memory of her childhood nor of her parents but except for that and a stubborn repeated dream that won't go away, everything is normal. Once her eighteenth birthday strikes however, that all changes. With a sudden interest in flowers, random flashbacks, strange feelings she can't explain and being attacked in the middle of the night by three very scary looking guys.
If that isn't weird enough, Seph finds herself being saved by a handsome stranger who introduces himself as a private detective named Hades. Convincing her that it's no longer safe, he instructs her to come with him to a safe house. With only the annoying and moody Hades as company, she knows it's going to be a long journey although she finds herself trusting him nevertheless.
But along the way, she finds herself being chased by things that shouldn't exist; demons, gorgons, minotaurs, gods, goddesses and even a three headed dog which makes her question everything that she once thought she knew especially because they're all after one thing, her.
Has Seph made the right choice to trust him? Or is he the one that wants her dead? After all when you're told you're actually a Greek Goddess named Persephone, your real father is Zeus and you've got this big destiny set out ahead of you where you're going to end up being a Queen of the Underworld, you'd end up laughing about it too.
