Thanatos and Therese's love story continues in the second book of this epic young adult series by USA Today bestselling author Eva Pohler.
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. Then she becomes infuriated with Than when he says that 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 that 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.

If you liked the Gatekeeper's Sons, you will love the sequel. I never know whether to love or loathe the gods or Therese.
It's a good book great plot and characters don't get me wrong it's just annoying how every chapter the main character whines and complains asking the gods for help. She should do less of the complaining and more of the doing. It gets repetitive with that and that annoys me a lot. Without that one problem it be a five star book for sure
