#IntoTheDark Behind-the-Scenes Video

Saturday, May 9, 2015

Hey guys! If you haven't heard yet, I'm an Into the Dark Series Ambassador for Bree Despain. What exactly does this mean? Well, it means that I get to share exclusive behind-the-scenes content (Like I did a few weeks ago, with HadenDaphne, and Tobin's Character Profiles and theTeaser Quotes) and fun giveaways like the one I did (still going!!) for The Shadow Prince! Today, I have a pretty epic behind the scenes video for the series!

Bree Despain's INTO THE DARK series is based on two of her favorite Greek myths: Persephone & Hades, and Orpheus & Eurydice. Both are stories about people who ventured into the dark (or the unknown) for the sake of love. Most people are more familiar with the Persephone myth than they are with the story of Orpheus and Eurydice so Bree decided to to make a little 4 minute movie version of the myth for anyone who might want a little refresher course on this tragic tale. The movie was written and directed by Bree's 12 year old son and stars the members of her family--including Bree and all of her messy hair + no makeup glory. Enjoy!


The Shadow Prince (Into the Dark #1) by Bree Despain

From Goodreads: Haden Lord, the disgraced prince of the Underrealm, has been sent to the mortal world to entice a girl into returning with him to the land of the dead. Posing as a student at Olympus Hills High-- a haven for children of the rich and famous-- Haden must single out the one girl rumored to be able to restore immortality to his race.

Daphne Raines has dreams much bigger than her tiny southern Utah town, so when her rock star dad suddenly reappears, offering her full tuition to Olympus Hills High's prestigious music program, she sees an opportunity to catch the break she needs to make it as a singer. But upon moving into her estranged father's mansion in California, and attending her glamorous new school, Daphne soon realizes she isn't the only student in Olympus who doesn't quite belong.

Haden and Daphne-- destined for each other-- know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails. As war between the gods brews, the teenager's lives collide. But Daphne won't be wooed easily and when it seems their prophesied link could happen, Haden realizes something he never intended-- he's fallen in love. Now to save themselves, Haden and Daphne must rewrite their destinies. But as their destinies change, so do the fates of both their worlds.

The Eternity Key (Into the Dark #2) by Bree Despain

From Goodreads: Fan-favorite author Bree Despain continues her modern-day romance trilogy inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades with this second book in her Into the Dark series.

Haden Lord, the disgraced Prince of the Underrealm, has chosen love over honor and will do everything in his power to protect Daphne Raines, the human girl he was supposed to bring to the Underrealm. Haden's choice is put to the test as the Skylords and a figure from his past arrive in Olympus Hills with a plan that could destroy all of the realms.

Embracing her destiny as the Cypher, Daphne begins to understand the immense power of her musical ability to control the elements, but she must come to terms with her feelings for Haden and what she must sacrifice in order to protect him and her friends. 

Believing the Key of Hades is the only thing that can stop the Underrealm Court from releasing the monstrous Keres on the mortal world, Haden, Daphne, and their friends set out to find the Key before Persephone's Gate opens again on the spring equinox.
