This novel is simultaneously mythologically accurate and an extremely entertaining story. Pohler combines mystery with suspense with mythology and romance to create a captivating and well-rounded whole with some shocking twists. As an author Pohler engages her readers both emotionally and intellectually. She had me on the edge of my seat biting my nails, curled in a ball with a broken heart, and laughing like a little kid. Her smooth, flowing writing style draws you into the story and keeps you ...more

This book focuses more on the story of Hyp and Jen. Things really start getting interesting as the gods fight with each other and nobody knows who is against who. There are still plenty of things from Kira's point of view. I think this book is the beginning of some very exciting things in the lives of gods and the mortals they are involved with.

As I’ve come to expect with Eva’s books, ‘The Gatekeeper’s House’ blew me away. We return to Therese and Than’s story right where the last book left off, but it takes absolutely no time at all for the action to kick in. From that moment on, it is impossible to think about stopping- once you’re in, there’s no way you can escape this amazing story that Eva has created.

Throughout the last three books, we’ve seen the main character, th

Somehow Eva still astounds and amazes me! You would think, 4th book in you'd be able to guess what's coming, but you never do even when you think you're wrong! :-) I love Eva's writing style and the way she captivates the reader, her stories and characters draw you in and keep you hooked. I'm not sure you could ask for more than that from any book. Eva you continue to amaze me, your stories, plots and characters are solid and easy to fall in love with and keep wanting MORE!!

There was constantly something happening, it kept you wondering what was going to happen throughout the entire book!

This being the next in the series I latched on to it and now have finished the book. It continues to take the twist and turns in the main characters lives. A good read. My thanks to the author.

If you have not read any of these books. I swear you are definitely missing out. This novel is the fourth addition to the Gatekeepers Saga and in my opinion it is just as good as the authors other three novels prior to this one. We are again faced with one of my favorite type of books mythology and as I read through I can see that the author has put tremendous time in making sure that her readers are wrapped within the story, I know I was from the beginning of this. She brings to you a complete ...more

Okay, even though this is the fourth book in the series, I’m going to attempt to keep this spoiler free just in case there are a few of you that want to check out if this book is good (WHICH IT IS UNDENIABLY) before you read it (WHICH YOU SHOULD ALSO UNDENIABLY).

*Slow clap* Eva Pohler, you have done it again

Can I just start of by praising Eva Pohler, the author, for being able to not forget anything for her previous books in the making of this book and the series. You have to be amazingly talent

I did enjoy this book. Unfortunately, it took me a lot longer to read than expected. I will say overall I am excited to read the next book as I'm very intrigued by this series. I sadly can't help but think that this is dragging on a little in regards to the fact that there is always something going on with therese and than. I keep wanting to get more information about these two children they are going to have, I want to see them get married, and I want to see what they are going to do about the ...more

This book starts off with a bang!
I mean it really does start off with a bang. The Underworld is under attack. Souls are unleashed back on earth and it's a huge mess trying to return them to where they belong. Gods are forced to pick a side in the stand off between Zeus and Hades. Alliances will be tested. In the midst of the chaos, Therese is questioning if Thanatos will be able to remain faithful to her. If the history of the other gods is an indicator, their future doesn't look good. No oth

I couldn't put this down. I finished it in less than 24 hours. All fans if this series will enjoy reading this next installment in Therese and Than's life. The book starts off with Therese who torn because she loves Than but has heard all bad things about gods being faithful to their wives. Someone attacks the underworld and leaves our hero and heroin puzzled as to who wants to harm them now. We get a break from Therese and Than to check on Hip who had gone to the above world to woo Jen and it t ...more

I'm enjoying this series. It is fun and a little cheesy, but it's kept me entertained.

There are some problems with it. Plot points are kind of dropped or grazed over after they're made into a very big deal. Also, I didn't like that the book starts off with the hero and heroine on the outs. It seems like it goes completely against what the first three books have set up. They've fought to be together and then suddenly she calls off the wedding because she's afraid that the hero--the guy who has si

The Gatekeeper's House by Eva Pohler is the 4th book in The Gatekeeper's Saga and a wonderful continuation of the series. In this story, Therese and Than are not married and the wedding is in jeopardy - first because of Therese's fears and then because of discord among the gods. Because of this discord, the souls in the Underworld are released and set out in the world.
I love this series and it gets better with every book. Ms. Pohler obviously knows a lot about Greek mythology and she is able to

Doesn't disappoint

Such a refreshing story with a mythical twist.
It's so neat to recall the old myths and dive deeper into the God's psyche as a new spin is put on them.

The Malevolent is out for blood and she's willing to bring down all of the underworld to get it. But more importantly, what would provoke such a grievance against her own father? Or was it really her father that started it all.

Therese and Than's wedding is on hold. Indefinitely. And with souls running amuck on earth Than's job

Wow, if you thought the first 3 books in this series where "on the edge of your seat" crazy, then you certainly need to read this book. Book 4 picks up right where book 3 leaves off. During this one, you learn more about Therese and her troubles with Than. You will also get to know a side to Than's father that will kind of shock you. Hip gets his chance in the Upperworld, and has his eyes set on Jen (Threse's best friend). Having to go back and help in the Underworld, Jen and her family are plac ...more

Zeus doesn't like oaths being broken but he is the biggest back stabbed among the Gods. I can't believe he had Hips liver ripped out by an Eagle and he rapes the wives of others by assuming their forms. I can say I loathe him. He is despicable. Than better get ready because his bride to be can't seem to not always help even if it means she dies, baby Lynn is doing awesome. And now that Pete is praying to Zeus and Theresea will it cause uncertain doom for them?!? So much going on and what of

Beyond Epic!!!

This book brought more of the amazing journey you should be used to by now, but brought it to a whole new level. These books just keep getting more exciting, and we keep delving further into the relationships, and personalities of the Gods. Not only is it exciting, but I really feel like this one drove the message home to stand up for what you believe in, no matter what. Your life will not be complete without reading this book!!!

Once again I was up half the night reading a book in this exciting series! Eva Pohler makes mythology come alive! The Gatekeeper's House started off with a bang and didn't stop until the last page! I literally couldn't stop reading until I knew what happened! Every book just keeps getting better and better! This is a series that I will be reading more than once or even twice and any age will love it!

Book 4 picks right up where book 3 left off and the author does such a great job of making the story flow you don't feel like you're on a new book :) There is a great combination of greek mythology, romance, and on the edge of your seat suspense you are going to fall in love with the story, characters and the author! A great read in an already great series!

Another fantastically written work, I love when a book in a series can also be a standalone novel, this author specializes in that, I am not looking forward to reading more only because I don't want to say goodbye to these wonderful characters!!! LOL but I can't stop myself lol I have become addicted to this series!!! I would love to see it at the theater!!!

Spoilers possible!!

I almost gave up reading this book after the first chapter. I was annoyed by the postponement of the wedding and Therese being insecure with Than. However, by the middle of the book, the qualities Therese has that makes Than and the readers love her are still there even through her few shortcomings. Overall, I did enjoy the book and will be anxiously awaiting book 5.
