The Gatekeeper’s Trilogy by Eva Pohler is a box set of the first 3 books in the Gatekeeper’s Saga series. These books are a fascinating read – they manages to entwine Greek mythology and modern life. I have always been a fan of mythology and I love reading about the gods and goddesses and how they can fit into modern times. The books impressed me because they were well researched and gave a lot of respect to mythology.
I loved the characters that Ms. Pohler created in these books. Therese was such a strong character and a wonderful protagonist. Than was so serious and sweet and devoted to Therese. I loved seeing how Than grew to understand humans as he spent time with Therese in the mortal world. Ms. Pohler develops such realistic characters in this trilogy and easily helps you to feel and understand their emotions. I also loved the personalities that Ms. Pohler gave each of the gods and goddesses. I’ve always loved Poseidon and I loved his interactions with Therese.
She witnessed the murder of her parents, and barely made it out alive herself. She spent some time in a coma in the hospital, which is where she met Hypnos and Thanatos in her dreams. They are the sons of Hades, ruler of the underworld. Hypnos is the God of Sleep and Thanatos, or Than, is the God of Death. Therese and Than fall in love at first sight. The problem? Therese was a mortal and so it would never work. Than comes to earth to woo Therese and convince her to become a God so that they can marry. These books kept me on my toes, to sitting on the edge of my seat. Loved reading them. When I was in High School we read a lot about the greek gods and I always wanted more.
