The Gatekeeper's Secret: Gatekeeper's Saga, Book Fiveby Eva Pohler
When Zeus invites Therese and Thanatos to a party on Mount Olympus in their honor, they and the other gods who have formed the Athena Alliance are immediately suspicious of a trap. They fear Zeus has learned of their desire to free Metis and Cybele and to stand up for all the women he has wronged. Although Therese recruits Dione, Amphitrite, and others to the Alliance, Pete has unwittingly sabotaged their plans by revealing to Zeus the prophecy from the ghost of Mr. Holt. And now, the day that might have been the most wonderful day of Therese's life (her wedding day) will be wrought with conflict where someone close to her is fated to die. Can Therese and the other gods in the Alliance bind the almighty Zeus and restore justice and true democracy among the Olympians? Or will Zeus succeed in swallowing Therese and separating her from Thanatos for all eternity?

Love Than and Therese!!!! They have been through so much to be together!!! I have learned so much about how the gods are related with this series. Eva knows her mythology!!!
The latest book in the Gatekeeper's Saga is another smashing success! Therese and Than are engaged to be married. Zeus invites the couple to Mount Olympus for a party in their honor. They don't want to go, but ultimately have no choice. Is this party a trap? Has Zeus learned of the Athena Alliance and their plan to bind Zeus and free Metis and Cybele? There's only one way to find out. Before the wedding, they learned that Pete has unknowingly revealed a prophecy to Zeus that can not only sabotage the plans of the Athena Alliance, but also destroy what should be Therese's best day of her life, her wedding day. Can the alliance still find a way to pull everything off, or will Zeus destroy everything and keep Therese and Than apart for eternity? You have got to grab a copy of this book to find out. I just love this take on modern day Greek mythology. The gods still meddling in each others lives for their own gain. This book is full of an action packed adventure. There's no down time or drawn out parts like some books tend to have. It grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the end. This book itself, does not have a cliffhanger ending, but it will leave you longing for more. I also want to comment on the teaser in the back for the 6th and final book in the Gatekeeper's Saga. Like that last cookie on the plate screaming for you to consume it, you really can't help but read it. That is where you will find the edge of the rocky cliff, leaving you waiting in anticipation for the final book. But really, do we WANT that 6th and final book? Of course we do, but it'll be a shame to see the end of this fabulous series. I will be anxiously waiting for The Gatekeeper's Promise.
Pohler’s done it again & these books just keep getting better and better. She works her magic with the same smooth, approachable writing style that we’ve come to know and love to create a work of creative brilliance. There is an air of mystery and suspense that winds its way through this tale. Pohler combines intense emotional scenes with action packed sequences to always keep you on your toes. This novel is also emotionally intense as the characters are faces with some very difficult and life altering choices. I absolutely love how you get to know the gods in their down time in this one. It gives you extra insight into them as people. They’re real & fun, rather than simply untouchable deities. The way that the characters’ emotions really play out through their actions factor into this as well, allowing you to relate to them and understand them on a deeper level. I was completely wrapped up in this tale and the characters that filled it. The reader also becomes much better acquainted to some of the gods who’d played minor roles in other novels. I also appreciate how when Pohler introduces new gods into the series or brings minor characters back she ensures that she includes what they’re the god of rather than assuming that everyone knows. She reveals a great deal about the characters with a few simple words. Although this is a brilliant read in and of itself I’d definitely suggest reading the previous novels in the series to get the full impact of this one. It’s a brilliant addition to the series adding some creative twists to the plot. Pohler’s saga keeps getting more and more action packed the further into the series you get. I couldn’t put this one down for a second. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
I was so lucky and won this book at one of Eva Pohler's Facebook parties and once I started it, I couldn't put it down! Every book in this series has gotten better and better (if it's even possible) and The Gatekeeper's Secret is no exception! In fact, it's the best one yet! Eva's writing style is so amazing and easy that she draws you in from the first page. She hits the ground running with action until the very end where it's almost impossible to put down for any reason! (Every book has kept me up late because I simply couldn't put it down to even sleep.) It's a great read for any age from Young Adult to Adult! Her characters are very believable, along with the history of the Gods in the series. I love how she portrays mythology! The adventure begins when her main character Therese falls in love with Thanatos, the God of Death, after watching her parents die in a car wreck. It never slows down after that because the Gods are never quite that easy to deal with! They are however, very hot in this series! In The Gatekeeper's Secret, we get to learn more about these God's histories and personalities along with the non-stop adventure. The great thing is, Eva has a new spin without moving away from what I learned in school about mythology. Even the God's personalities and attitudes, in her writing style, were never far off from how I imagined the Gods would act! I can't say enough about this book or the series! I know that it's going to near impossible for me to be patient for the next book! While this book could stand alone, don't cheat yourself, read the whole series in order! Whether you are into mythology or not, you won't be disappointed! I will say again, this is the best one yet!!!
