Dive into a world in which the ancient gods of Greece still rule in modern times..
Thanatos meets seventeen-year-old Therese while she's in a coma hovering between the realm of the dead and the realm of dreams. A lucid dreamer, she takes control of her dream and kisses him, unaware that he is Death.
It was his first kiss. No one, in his long existence, has ever wanted to kiss Death.
After Therese awakens from her coma, Thanatos is desperate to find her. He makes a deal with Hades and goes to the Upperworld as a mortal to pursue her and to see where it might lead.
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.
*Formerly The Gatekeeper's Sons, this series has been edited so that the main character begins her journey at age seventeen.

"Even though I'm not in the target audience (I'm over 40 and can no longer be called a young adult!) I really enjoyed this book. I loved the story and the characters are believable and engaging. I became really invested in their trials and tribulations. There's some real emotion in here, I even found myself with tears in my eyes on a few occasions."

"I really enjoyed this series...started with the first book and wanted to keep reading until I got to the end. It's a fun blend of mythological characters, paranormal, romance, adventure, and while I haven't been a young adult for a very long time, I still enjoyed reading this series. It is also one I can see myself reading again."
"Great plot and character development. Greek mythology blended with modern themes. Highly recommend."
"I really enjoyed reading this book! To me it was sort of a cross between Twilight and The Hunger Games with some wonderful Greek mythology thrown in for good measure! I actually learned something by reading this book and it actually peaked my curiosity into learning more about the Greek gods and goddesses. Looking forward to reading more in the series!"
--Robin E Casey ★★★★★
"I absolutely loved and enjoyed this book! Once I began reading, I was immediately hooked and wondered why I hadn't read it sooner, since I'd downloaded it quite some time ago. Loved it! The characters are believable, the plot moves quickly and keeps the reader engaged, and it is quite easy to become emotionally attached as the Therese, the main character, goes through so much."
--Dusty Rogers ★★★★★
I thought most of the mythology was correct. Thanatos and Hypnos, although, were not children of Persephone and Hades. They were the children of Nyx and Erebus. Other than that, nothing else seemed to be wrong. I couldn’t put down this book and really recommend it.
Unfortunately I could not finish this book. I tried and tried. I just kept drifting off and getting bored. I can’t pinpoint exactly why though. I felt like I had read the story before, but this was a very less interesting version? It was odd. I rarely can’t finish a book.
Two thumbs up!
Great book. Highly recommend it!
