This graphic novel tells the story of Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest, and her daughter, Persephone. Demeter rules over a perpetual summer on earth, where crops, trees, and flowers grow in abundance. Persephone, young and beautiful, unknowingly attracts the attention of the lonely god of the Underworld, Hades. Hades kidnaps Persephone, and a frantic Demeter searches in vain for her daughter. Finally, Demeter retreats to her temple in mourning. The goddess's sorrow causes the crops to die and the ground to freeze. The first winter falls over Greece. As people begin to starve, the other Olympian gods and goddesses try to convince Demeter to accept a marriage between Persephone and Hades. But Demeter will not give up her daughter forever to the Underworld. Finally a compromise is struck: Persephone will stay with Hades for half a year (winter). When she comes back from the Underworld to spend half a year with her mother, spring returns to earth.

Faced with stiff competition from Android flagships that have long featured big screens, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are Apple's authoritative answer to the growing number of iOS fans restlessly awaiting their own big phones. The new phones are powered behind the scenes by Apple's latest software release, iOS 8, which also brings many features and changes with it.This guide is designed to walk you through the most important parts of the phone, from the basics and learning how to navigate through the phone, to more advanced features like setting up email accounts and understanding what the cloud really is. Towards the end, a list of the 20 top paid and free applications will be available to add many different functionalities to your phone once you are comfortable enough with it.
