The Gatekeeper’s Trilogy by Eva Pohler

by 

thegatekeepers1When it comes to reading there is only one person I want helping me with reviews. That’s Jordan. He not only reads at a high school level he is a speed reader and will be brutally honest with me about books he’s reading. He is also beyond his years in maturity, so after reading a few reviews I asked him if he wanted to read them too, and maybe have a little challenge with me. So, I gave him and I both a challenge to read these books in one month and at the end we’d compare what we thought.

We took a month and both read and agreed not to talk to each other about the books until we were both done. Of course, he finished before me and finally when we were able to discuss we both agreed: These book are fabulous, well written and we can’t wait to read more!

I’m surprised by both of our thoughts on the books. If you love reading, or have a teen or preteen who does as well I highly recommend The Gatekeeper’s Trilogy by Eva Pohler.

The Gatekeeper's Trilogy Review - sixtimemommy.comSynopsis:
A teen becomes entangled with the gods of Mount Olympus when one of them, Thanatos, the god of death, wants his chance at love. He makes a deal with his father, Hades, but not all the gods want him to succeed.

Part paranormal romance and part adventure story, this trilogy follows Therese’s adventures as she struggles to overcome the challenges the gods dish her in her quest to become like them.

What Other Reader’s Are Saying:
Readers are calling this series “Amazing,” “Addicting,” and “One of the best modern retelling of ancient myth.”

Where to get the trilogy:
You can purchase the trilogy on Kobo, Smashwords, Google Play, Kindle, iBooks and Nook

Thoughts:
Both Jordan and I were impressed with the writing of this book. Eva Pohler is an excellent author and we were pleasantly surprised at how we were both drawn into the series from a few pages in. I know for me, I stared off a bit iffy. I’m not one for books like these, I’m more into biography, memoir and another trilogy I will not name but these 3 books – they kept me entertained and wondering what was going to happen next.

I won’t give any details away, but if you are looking for a good read (or three!) I do recommend picking this trilogy up. Now, there are a few more books of Eva Pohler’s in this series I want to read when I get the time. They are on my list for summer reading. I’m anxious to see what happens next with the whole saga, and I look forward to reading more from Eva.

Could you see yourself enjoying this Trilogy? What kind of books do you like to read?

  1. I think my oldest would really like this. He needs some new books to read anyways, so these would be perfect.

  2. I have not heard of this trilogy before!! I love finding series that I can just dive right into especially when we are traveling long distances. This sounds like a great read as well with a great story line.

  3. My mom and I love reading books like these. We were looking for another great series to read so I’ll be sure to let her know of this.

  4. Wow, Jordan must have a large collection of books considering that he reads so fast. We too were honed to become speed readers since we have to review a number of books and write summaries and insights from them. I would love to read The Gatekeeper’s Trilogy soon and become addicted to it! I’ll download it later from Google Play so I’d have a copy on my phone.

  5. This trilogy sounds like an interesting read! My preteen is an avid reader too and would probably enjoy the mythology theme as well. Maybe we’ll have our own reading club challenge! Love that idea!

  6. Paranormal romance?? This is awesome. I often read trilogies because I just love having another book to look forward to – and then another!

  7. I love to read, but I’m very picky and need something to pull me in almost immediately. This doesn’t sound like my type of book, but you definitely have me curious.

  8. I love finding great books from other readers. I especially love series where they don’t have to wrap up the story in just one book. This sounds a little bit like Percy Jackson, but for the YA reader. I love to read YA books and so does my husband. I can’t wait to check these out. Thanks!

  9. Summer is here and it is the time to delve into a good book. I will have to take a look at this series because it seems to have all the components of books that I like to read. Greek mythology with paranormal sounds intriguing. Thanks for the review.

  10. I love that you and your son read this series together, my mother and I use to do that when I was growing up and we still do to this day. It’s always much more fun reading a book alongside someone so you can discuss it! Thanks for sharing!

  11. This sounds like a perfect buy for our oldest. She loves Greek god storylines and she devours literary trilogies. Thank you for identifying this for me – I am totally going to be a hero this summer!

  12. my son is an advanced reader as well and would have read this type of book in 3rd or 4th grade- but now he likes the classics and such things like Shakespeare. I’ll have to see if my younger daughters would like these

  13. I have never read this trilogy or anything by this author. I am always looking for new authors – adding this to my MUST READ list. I enjoy all types of books – I love to read.
