I write fiction for teens and adults and teach writing and literature at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where I live with my husband, three kids, two dogs, and two rats (Katniss and Prim, of course). I'm also an avid reader and book reviewer. I've always said I never want to give up reading for writing or vice versa. I want to do both. My favorite authors are Tracy Chevalier, Ann Patchett, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Rick Riordan, and Stephanie Meyer. I have too many to name, but those are a handful of them. When I'm not spending time with the family, working, reading, or writing, I can be found watching The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, The Middle, and NCIS. I love to interact with readers and have recently added features to my website at http://www.evapohler.com with this in mind. If you email me your art and/or stories based on The Gatekeeper's Trilogy, or on Greek mythology in general, I will post them on my website for others to enjoy. I have also added a short video on the Olympians and a fun Jeopardy Game to test your knowledge. Please visit my website for more details. Thanks for taking the time to read about me and my writing!

Hypnos and Jen aren't married long when they realize something's missing: they both want to have a child, especially when they see how happy Therese and Than are with their twins. But the creation of new gods is against the rules, and they aren't willing to give up their immortality. So Hypnos goes to Mount Olympus to offer Zeus a deal. He'll make it his mission to find out the source of the recent attacks on Gaia--terrifying earthquakes that have already released one monster from the Titan Pit--if Zeus will agree to let him and Jen have one immortal child.
Because the attacks are getting humans killed and none of the other gods have been able to discover a lead, Zeus, in his desperation, agrees. But this new quest just might get Hypnos swallowed and trapped for all eternity.

I have to admit....I wasn't sssuuuuppppeeerrr excited to read about Jen and Hip. Jen kind of gets on my nerves but by the end she won me over. Great addition to the world. Love learning about even more gods than we've already been introduced to! Spolier alert: I think Zeus should have restored the underworld childrens' original powers and purposes. Taking over the Maenads punishment is not enough for completely ruining a happy family dynamic knowing YOU were the one that caused it!!!!
What a great addition to the Gatekeeper's Saga. Since this is a spin-off it's a little different but is still just as captivating as the others. I enjoyed seeing Jen and Hip on a more personal level and still being able to see Than and Therese and of course the twins. I liked the mystery and trying to figure out what exactly is going on. It keeps your attention and you find yourself fully immersed in the world of the Gods. The new character will steal your heart because he's precious. Good job, loved it!
A good guy Zeus wow I never thought I see the day but you still a little dumb *looks around nervously* anyways moving on this book was amazing like literally so many myths mashed into one and they ran so smoothly bit all of them sprung forth the Morpheus myth and nailed it so hard it hurt. good job giving Therese some hope. like my brother warned me aether you shady boy I'd say more but that's a spoiler. now Scylla hmm I like it but her mom non non non and then you demand respect from the gods tsk tsk tsk. now that ending I just gotta say welp it's about to hit the fan harder than a freight train and faster than a bullet train.
I died a bit on the inside after the ending. But I enjoyed this book completely knowing that Zeus was acting like a good guy and accepted Hypnos deal in exchange for what he had to do. It was satisfying seeing Jen trying to help Scylla and her becoming good at the end but the most satisfying thing was knowing that Than and Therese have a chance to be gods again but Aether I never did trust him at all, that's one shady god. Though everything turned out well at the end, hip and Jen has a kid but I did not see that coming when Zeus gave him the name, I was like wut?! But Poor Carol and Richard to learn such shocking news even though they accepted them after a bit. Now Gimme the other one or gimme death!
