‘Finley the Brave and Persefoni the Death Giver’ By Megan Pounds

The story begins as Finley the Brave’s is just ending. She sits next to a dying dragon, another princess lost, another day without her true love. Beyond the dragon, a luminous being named Persefoni appears and explains herself to Finley as a Death Giver, although not death itself. This alone intrigues Finley as she’s always been so curious about what death is and what it means. Finley the Brave and Persefoni the Death Giver is a story exploring life’s oddities such as love and falling into that great abyss and of course, death. Even the bravest have questions, and that’s okay.
