"This book quickly became a page turner, and toward the end I was biting my nails!" – Mama Bookasaurus

"I love nothing more than a great series I can really sink my teeth into, and I think this series will end up being one of my favorites." – My Escape Into Books

Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.

Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.

The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.

Meet the Author

I write fiction for teens and adults and teach writing and literature at a university in San Antonio, where I live with my husband, three kids, and two dogs. I'm also an avid reader. I've always said I never want to give up reading for writing or vice versa. I want to do both. My favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Tracy Chevalier, Ann Patchett, Suzanne Collins, Barbara Kingsolver, Cassandra Clare, and Stephanie Meyer. I have too many to name, but those are a handful of them.

I love to interact with readers and have recently added features to my website at http://www.evapohler.com with this in mind. If you email me your art and/or stories based on The Gatekeeper's Saga, or on Greek mythology in general, I will post them on my website for others to enjoy. You will also fins a short video on the Olympians and a fun Jeopardy Game to test your knowledge. If you enjoy quizzes, you can download a free app to test your knowledge of The Gatekeeper's Saga.

Thanks for taking the time to read about me and my writing!

Sample:

Michael Evans is only in rural St. David's to maintain a low profile after his time spent as a city cop ended in disaster. The town is perfect for him: isolated. A tiny population. Virtually no crime.
Until the night the strange canisters fall from the sky and the town priest starts killing people with his teeth. To Michael, the bloodbath looks like a murder case that the quiet town's two police officers can't possibly handle.

But this isn't just a crime scene.

And the priest is just the beginning...

Quinn Checks In (Liam Quinn Mysteries #1), by LH Thomson. (Still free?)

"Outstanding! Once I started reading, the suspense and intrigue didn’t let me put the pages down. Excellent mistery book with a well developed and intense plot. I had no idea where things were going until the final reveal." -- Amazon reviewer

A gallery heist isn't what it seems, and pretty soon, Quinn is running out of people to trust. The biggest mobster in town, a sweetheart named "Vin The Shin," is calling him out; a steady string of lowlifes want his head, and the local police think he's hiding something. But hey, when trouble comes knocking? That's when Quinn Checks In.

"My first thought after reading L. H. Thomson's Quinn Checks In was I hope he doesn't check out. This is the first in a promised series, and I'm looking forward to the next one." - JM Orenduff, author of The Pot Thief series.

Cadets: 2 The Ship of the Gods, by Edward Miller. (Still 2.99?)

"Great read! The story flows easily from the first book. Urgently working to save the planets the joint forces work to unravel the ancient mysteries that are their only hope, you follow the trials that must be overcome along with the development of lasting friendships both personally and militarily. Good choice for readers of many ages." -- Amazon reviewer

Six months have passed since United Earth Defense Fleet (UEDF) cadets Ryan Thompson, Amanda Williamson, and their senior class saved earth from destruction at the hands of the Altarrans. It seems like yesterday that they learned startling truths about the strange invaders from Altarra, and undertook the adventure of a lifetime.

As the cadets now prepare for graduation, Amanda is haunted by vivid nightmares of another alien race, this one much more deadly, and with a mission to annihilate all life within our galaxy. Worse, she’s having mysterious blackouts and apparent visits from an ancient entity, who warns that the Karang are coming.

With the help of their former enemies, the Altarrans, Ryan, Amanda and the entire UEDF must hold off the Karang against all odds, while searching for a long-hidden, legendary weapon known as the Ship of the Gods, which may be the only slim hope for Earth’s survival.

Introductions: The Ghost Bird Series: #1 (The Academy), by C. L. Stone. (Still free?)

"I liked that this story addresses a phobia, which is also a medical condition, but it isn't the main focus. I like the mystery behind the group of boys. I also like the friendship each main character has with one another, and develops with Sang." -- Amazon reviewer

With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. The only thing Sang craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary by her peers, because for her being different meant being cast out alone.

When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have a natural relationship with friends.

Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy that they've sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers that her friends are far from the normalcy she expected. Will her loyalty change when she's forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she's traded one house of secrets for another?

Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.

The Academy, ever vigilant.

PANDORA, by Rebecca Hamilton. (Still 0.99?)

"This set of books is an excellent value. I'm reading through the set now and am blown away by how good they all are. If you love intriguing stories, nail-biting stories, fascinating stories, stories that keep you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages, then this is the set for you. I especially enjoyed INTO YOU by Riley J. Ford because it was a funny, unique paranormal with a unique premise that kept me guessing. Every book that I've read so far in this set has been good, though, and I still can't believe the ENTIRE collection of all 20 books was only 99 cents! That's practically free. You can't go wrong with such a deal, especially when you get so many great reads by some extremely talented authors." -- Amazon reviewer


Available until October 5th! Only four weeks left to get the set before it's gone forever!
