This is a fun series for anyone who loves mythology (guilty!) and craves a little impossible romance. In the first book in the series, Therese met and fell in love with Than, god of death and son of Hades and Persephone. She almost won the right to become his queen, but a moment of charity cost her everything. This tale picks up ten months later, and despite their separation, Than and Therese are still determined to be together. Than uncovers a way that he can defy his father and have Therese turned into a goddess, but Therese would rather accept Hades’ second bargain and win the right to be with her love in an honorable way. The challenges that are set for her would test even Hercules, but Therese is determined to join her love. But will her love be enough to give her superhuman strength?
Feeling like a mythic blend of Twilight and The Goddess Test, The Gatekeeper’s Challenge is a wonderful installment in a fun series. You’ll get lost in this world, and like Therese, you might not want to come out.

Date Published: 11/29/12
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. 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.
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.
