Waterstones Says

Tearing up the Greek myth of Persephone with irresistible exuberance, rising TikTok star Fitzgerald crafts an irreverent romcom retelling where Demeter's headstrong daughter feels the heat with a seriously smoking Hades.

To hell with love, this goddess has other plans. Thousands of years ago, the gods told a lie: how Persephone was a pawn in the politics of other gods. How Hades kidnapped Persephone to be his bride. How her mother, Demeter, was so distraught she caused the Earth to start dying. The real story is much more interesting.

Persephone wasn't taken to hell: she jumped. There was no way she was going to be married off to some smug god more in love with himself than her.

Now all she has to do is convince the Underworld's annoyingly sexy, arrogant and frankly rude ruler, Hades, to fall in line with her plan. A plan that will shake Mount Olympus to its very core.

But consequences can be deadly, especially when you're already in hell.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Funny, fierce and feminist; this is a refreshing romp through Greek mythology. Bea Fitzgerald draws on her extensive knowledge to create this imaginative retelling, turning everything we think we know about Persephone and Hades upside down and recasting them as the stars of this unexpected, meticulously researched, empowering rom-com. - Jennifer Saint, Sunday Times bestselling author of Ariadne

Girl, Goddess, Queen is simply divine. Bea has woven a classic myth with an electrifying romance and a witty, fiercely modern twist. Beautifully written, utterly glorious, and fabulously powerful, this is a definite must-read that should be at the top of everyone's TBR pile! - Beth Reekles, bestselling author of The Kissing Booth

A captivating debut! Girl, Goddess, Queen is an incredibly fun and wonderfully crafted reimagining of a beloved myth - bringing to life timeless gods, the complex intimacy of family bonds, a fierce protagonist, and a passionate slow-burn romance. - Sue Lynn Tan, Sunday Times bestselling author of Daughter of the Moon Goddess.

Girl Goddess Queen is a richly woven, gloriously funny and deeply swoony exploration of the Hades & Persephone myth, and I'm so excited for everyone to discover the marvellous talent that is Bea Fitzgerald. - Lizzie Huxley-Jones, author of Make You Mine This Christmas

A fresh feminist take on a classic myth, Girl, Goddess, Queen is ripe with yearning, humour and wit. - Rosie Talbot, author of Sixteen Souls

A clever and fresh feminist retelling that pulses with beauty and life. - Anna Waterworth, author of The Girl Who Grew Wings
