He'll make it his mission to find ou ...more

A good guy Zeus wow I never thought I see the day but you still a little jerk *looks around nervously* anyways moving on this book was amazing like literally so many myths mashed into one and they ran so smoothly bit all of them sprung forth the Morpheus myth and nailed it so hard it hurt. good job giving Therese some hope. like my brother warned me aether you shady mofo I'd say more but that's a spoiler. now Scylla hmm I like it but her mom non non non a ...more

Oh my goodness I loved every minute of the book. I can't wait for more. I am so glad I got to hear more about Hypnos and Jen even though I'm a little jealous but more for personal reasons. ;) Hypnos is such amazing character. I love the surprise twist with the mystrey god. Heck I liked him at first lol. I can't believe Hypnos almost had to go through that!!! Made me bite my nails. I really enjoyed the story and the child. I still think Jen and Hyp should have at least one child of their own. I'm ...more

Couldn't put it down (except when I had work). I loved the writing and the story. I enjoyed the interesting twist on a certain characters origins and loved the twist at the end even though I see it all turning out well in the end. I especially loved how the Underworld family came together in the end. Now my only problem is...I gotta wait till April 2017 for the next book. I'm already having Gatekeeper Spin-off withdrawal symptoms. I think my only other problem was how short it was because it was ...more

What a great addition to the Gatekeeper's Saga. Since this is a spin-off it's a little different but is still just as captivating as the others. I enjoyed seeing Jen and Hip on a more personal level and still being able to see Than and Therese and of course the twins. I liked the mystery and trying to figure out what exactly is going on. It keeps your attention and you find yourself fully immersed in the world of the Gods. The new character will steal your heart because he's precious. Good job, ...more

An adventure with Hypnos....

This is the first of the spin-off books in A Gatekeeper's Saga and I'm liking Eva Pohler's telling of Greek Mythology more and more. She has the Underworld as not am evil place that ever other telling has it. She gives you the sense that everyone has a great purpose which is true. This story takes you more into the lives of Hypnos and his wife Jen (Theresa friend). There are a lot of twist and turns in this story as with the others in the saga. If you are a huge fan o

So... the only problem I have with this book is now I have to wait for the next one! I was mildly annoyed with Jen being the "star of this book. She was never really my favorite... she was OK... but I guess since she was not really... fleshed out (if you will) in the original Gatekeepers series I was not that invested in her. All and all I was quite please with this book. OK since this is not a spoiler... since Therese's parents were put in to cardinal's several books ago... they are both in RED ...more

** spoiler alert ** I died a bit on the inside after the ending. But I enjoyed this book completely knowing that Zeus was acting like a good guy and accepted Hypnos deal in exchange for what he had to do. It was satisfying seeing Jen trying to help Scylla and her becoming good at the end but the most satisfying thing was knowing that Than and Therese have a chance to be gods again but Aether I never did trust him at all, that's one shady god. Though everything turned out well at the end, hip and ...more

Fantastic spin-off!

Hypnos picks up where the 'Gatekeeper's Saga' ended. It's complete with all the same characters and a few new ones. This story, like Gatekeeper's is a battle of good vs evil. There's a traitor among the gods of Mount Olympus. This time it's up to Jen, who's struggling with her new goddess powers, to embrace her fears and help save her loved ones.
Again, Eva left me hanging on every word. I absolutely love her tales of Greek mythology and how she brings the gods to life. I can'

It gets better and better

Following the original series about the Gatekeeper this story feels just as action packed as the first six. Looking forward to the next part of this entertaining saga.
