The Gatekeeper’s Sons: Book One
Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Thanatos, the god of death. She thinks she’s manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese’s heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.

The Gatekeeper’s Challenge: Book Two
Ten agonizing months have .gone by since Therese faced off against her parents’ murderer at Mount Olympus, and she suspects Thanatos’s absence is meant to send her a message: go on with your life. She tries to return Pete’s affections even though her heart aches for the god of death, but when Than shows up to take her hamster’s soul, she becomes infuriated when he says he’s “been busy.” In cahoots with her new friend, who’s gotten in with the Demon Druggies at school, Therese takes a drug that simulates a near-death experience, planning to tell Than off so she can have closure and move on, but things go very, very wrong. Eventually she learns Than has been busy searching for a way to make her a god, and he’s found it, but it requires her to complete a set of impossible challenges designed by Hades, who hopes to see her fail.

The Gatekeeper’s Daughter: Book Three
In The Gatekeeper’s Sons, Therese and Thanatos, the god of death, met and fell in love. In The Gatekeeper’s Challenge, they did everything they could to be together, even break an oath on the River Styx. But the Olympians don’t tolerate oath-breakers. In this third book in the saga, The Gatekeeper’s Daughter, Therese may have finally succeeded in becoming a goddess, but if she wants to remain one, she’ll not only have to discover her unique purpose, but also make some allies among the gods. Artemis sends her on a seemingly impossible quest across the world, while Than searches for a way to appease Ares. To make matters worse, her baby sister’s life depends on the outcome of her quest.


When I was in high school, there was a quarter (most elementary and high schools in the Philippines have 4 quarters in a school year) where we learned about Greek Mythology in English class and I was so fascinated with it. I was so eager and interested in learning about the different gods and goddesses. When I read the synopsis of The Gate Keeper's Trilogy, I was immediately drawn to the story and was excited to read it Why? Because this book combined my love for paranormal/supernatural romance books and my interest in Greek Mythology.

The moment I started reading the book, I was hooked. I followed the journey of Therese as she lost her parents, met Than and Hip, fell in love and her journey and trials as she try to become a goddess to be with her true love, Than.

All throughout the trilogy, I looked forward to turn each page of the book because I couldn't wait to know what will happen next. There were lots of obstacles and challenges for both Therese and Than and I love how they handled and solved each challenge. The Greek gods and goddesses were described accurately and although some of them are petty and childish, I like how some gave their full support for Therese and Than.

The Gatekeeper's Trilogy is a great read for fans of Greek Mythology and paranormal or supernatural novels. This is one of the books which I couldn't put down once I started reading it.

  1. I wasn't sure about the book after the synopsis, but your review makes it sound like I should give it a chance. P.S. Petty and childish Greek gods sure sounds accurate to me!
