My Review on The Gate Keeper's Sons by Eva Pohler


Welcome to my Review on The Gate Keeper's Sons by Eva Pohler
Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Thanatos, the god of death. She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world. 

Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her. 

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.


MY REVIEW:

Romance of any level that includes Greek mythology and the gods is always a draw for me. Combine that with horses and cowboys and I am so there! I love the idea that the god of death is one half of a love story. You just don't expect that.
Than is innocent (unexpected for death) and so sweet. The way he and his sister react to chocolate is a laugh out loud moment.
Now for the audio book portion: This is Narrated By Debbie Andreen. Her delivery and inflections are wonderful. I was always able to tell without effort which character was speaking. She expressed a variety of emotions perfectly. I am very critical of audio books and this one is well done.
