The Gatekeeper's Trilogy e-book review

I received these items for free from in exchange for an honest review. Blurb and image source


A young adult fantasy about the ancient gods in modern times.

A teen becomes entangled with the gods of Mount Olympus when one of them, Thanatos, the god of death, wants his chance at love. He makes a deal with his father, Hades, to go to the upperworld to win Therese’s heart, but not all the gods are happy.

Part paranormal romance and part adventure story, this trilogy follows Therese’s adventures as she struggles to overcome the challenges the gods dish her in her quest to become like them.
Follow Therese’s adventures as she strives to become a goddess in the ancient Greek pantheon.

Available where all ebooks are sold. 


These books were a lot of fun to read, because there were a lot of twists and turns which I really didn't expect. Parts of the stories reminded me of Twilight and also the Vampire Diaries, to a small extent, due to somewhat similar themes. It was very interesting reading these similar themes with the Greek gods twist, however. I've always been really interested in mythology, so it was a lot of fun reading these stories and seeing the world through the eyes of the Greek gods.

Of the three books, I think The Gatekeeper's Daughter was my favorite. I felt the author really broke into her creative juices with this one, and avoiding some of the common themes of the genre. I felt The Gatekeeper's Challenge was rather morbid for younger readers, but I was satisfied with the ending.

I hope to read the other books in the series in the future. I think it would be fun if the author did some spin off series with some of the other characters, as well. A love story with Hip, for example, would be fun.

You can read more about all of Eva Pohler's books on her Web site. The first book in this series, The Gatekeeper's Sons, is available for free everywhere ebooks are sold (here's the Amazon link if you're interested.) These books sell individually, as the 3 pack I received or you can purchase the entire series in one collection. The original trilogy is priced at $5.98 on Amazon.
