Seven Seeds of Summer

This review is brought to you as part of the Virtual Book Tour for Seven Seeds of Summer, hosted by Bewitching Book Tours.

Seven Seeds of Summer was first published in 2014 and is the debut novel of Chantal Gadoury. It is a paranormal romance about an ordinary girl who finds herself drawn to an ancient god. The story draws its inspiration from Greek Mythology, particularly the legend of Hades and Persephone.

Nineteen year old Summer has been brought up loving Greek Mythology but while her parents favour tales about the more socially acceptable gods, Summer has always been drawn to stories about Hades, Lord of the Underworld. Her obsession manifests itself through her art and she finds herself painting portrait after portrait of her dark god.

However, it is not long before a mysterious stranger appears in her life. Claiming to be Hades, he stalks her relentlessly, telling her that she must come with him voluntarily or after a month she will have no choice. Although Summer is frightened by the man, she also finds herself oddly captivated by him.

When her family is forced to relocate to Greece, Summer finds herself torn. Although Hades is intense, she is not sure that she wants him out of her life. Yet soon after she arrives in Athens tragedy strikes and she is forced into her dark lord’s care. Being with Hades is not without its appeal for Summer but it carries a price that she is not certain she wants to pay. Can she really stand to be the god’s lover when it means spending a lifetime in his domain?
