In The Gatekeeper’s Sons, Therese and Thanatos, the god of Death, met and fell in love. In The Gatekeeper’s Challenge, they did everything they could to be together, even break an oath on the River Styx. But the Olympians don’t tolerate oath-breakers. In this final book in the trilogy, The Gatekeeper’s Daughter, Therese may have finally succeeded in becoming a goddess, but if she wants to remain one, she’ll not only have to discover her unique purpose, but also make some allies among the gods. Artemis sends her on a seemingly impossible quest across the world, while Than searches for a way to appease Ares. To make matters worse, her aunt’s baby’s life hangs in the balance.
I didn’t read the first two books but the author did a fantastic job weaving in the details so you never really felt lost. I was impressed by the authors use of the older more obscure gods and the use of a strong female lead. A lot of mythology based books ignore how strong the women gods were. The God Ares is determined to bring Therese down since he hates competition. Therese thinks she knows everything there is to know about herself but as the book progresses she finds more and more secrets about herself and her abilities. She takes it in stride with a strength that I’m not sure an adult would possess and keep going against impossible obstacles. I really liked this book and I’m am definitely going to go read the first two now.
