The Ballad of Persephone, Abdur R. Mohammed


The ancients from the stars shall return.

A global plague ends with the miraculous birth of Princess Persephone of House Enlil – sole heir to the Hyperborian Empire. An innocent encounter reveals a plot clothed in divine purpose, threatening stability within the realms of humanity. At risk is a powerful relic from the stars which ushers in the return of the Anunnaki. Fates converge on a dystopian precipice. Persephone’s naivete is stripped away, drawing battle lines between ancient houses. She cradles humanity’s destruction within, with her family’s mantra on bloody lips, “Man cannot rule man.”

The wheels of fate tumble towards a precipice of dystopia in an age before the “deluge.” A time where the myths of today are born and the path to prophecy is paved.

As I read The Ballad of Persephone, I immediately was drawn into the book and felt captivated by Mohammed’s spellbinding literature. Mohammed’s literature is detailed in the most immaculate of ways; the text is detailed but not too dense, it is beautifully written so that the reader will be able to immerse themselves in the story from beginning to end without difficulty.

Mohammed is not only a brilliant writer for his ability to captivate the reader’s attention straight away, but he is also an excellent author for his ability to lace exceptional twists and turns throughout his story that genuinely had me shocked at points! The combination of Mohammed’s shocking twists and his explanatory powers will immerse the reader in the story and make them be able to visualize every detail, no matter how small.
