The Gatekeeper's Promise by Eva Pohler


Before Therese and Thanatos can come to terms with the uncertain future of their unborn twins, Poseidon is attacked and both his wife and trident are stolen.

In this final installment of The Gatekeeper's Saga, Therese is forced to deliver her babies in the midst of an all-out war with enemies more powerful than the Olympians.


My Review:

This is the final book in the series and let me tell you I was enthralled with the story right from the start.  There was so much that was going on in this book both with the main characters and the gods.  Therese and Than are expecting their twins and there is still a "war" going on amongst the gods then to top it off, Jen is pulled into it.  

I loved how the story progressed and how it ended, I just hope there is more to come (perhaps a spinoff with Hip and Jen)  :)

Amber Smoke by Kristin Cast
(The Escaped #1)
Published by: Diversion Books

Synopsis:

The door to the massive New York Times bestselling HOUSE OF NIGHT series has closed.  Now, Kristin Cast kicks down a new door to welcome her millions of fans to her latest sizzling series.
There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the Furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.
Someone has opened the cage.
The worst of terrors has crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the Furies send a great, albeit untested warrior—their only son, Alek—to try to bring those souls back.  He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won’t be able to do it alone.
Eva has grown up, beautiful and beloved, but surrounded by secrets.  First, she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life.  Then, she will become the hunter.
With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another.  Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured through the HOUSE OF NIGHT series, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.

Zeus by Kamery Solomon


Vegas is not where Karly had imagined herself to be at this point in her life.She was supposed to be living in California, soaking up the sun and enjoying the life of an artist. Instead, she's just moving out of her parent's house and going to a school that could loosely be called her second choice. When she meets Zeus Drakos, owner of the new hit casino and resort in town, he seems just like every other jerk guy out there. How was she supposed to know who he really was?

My Review:

I am HUGE greek mythology fan and when I saw this one I knew I had to read it :)  Zeus is banned to earth after breaking a vow, little did he know that he would me Karly and fall in love.   The story that follows with these two characters is very interesting and I loved reading about it :)  I can't wait to read more from Kamery!

Seeress by Ednah Walters


I love Torin St. James...
I need his strength…
But someone from his past wants me dead.

Raine Cooper is certain of two things: her love for Torin St. James and her destiny to be a powerful seeress. But when she starts having premonitions, they are unclear and disturbing. Worse, they involve Torin. With her mother gone, her father dying, and her best friend in Hel, she is not sure who to talk to.

But when the visions become more personal and she foresees her future with Torin threatened by someone from his past, Raine becomes desperate for answers. Just her luck two new students arrive at her school and they seem to have answers. When with them, her powers are enhanced and her visions become clear. There is only one problem: Torin forbids Raine to see the two girls.

Can their love survive without trust?


My Review:

This is the third book in a Runes series and in this one Raine is finally starting to come into her new "powers".  Raine and Torin's story has been nothing but a roller coaster ride and when you think things are in the right spot they turn.  Their love for each is geniune but like all young relationships there are some doubts.  Ednah does a great job with drinking in the mytholigical aspect of the story into modern day and the supporting characters are just as good as the main ones.  This is a great third book and I'm looking forward to the next in the series.




Souls by Ednah Walters


WARNING: This is CORA'S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.

Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.

Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.

Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?
 

My Review:

This is the second book in Cora's story which is all part of one larger series.  Cora is finally learning to help the souls that she sees and is doing this with the help of Echo, her friends and a soul that won't go away.  Without going into too much information, you are going to continue to learn more about Cora and Echo with still reading about those you love (Raine, Torin and all the others).  This is a great addition to all an already great series!

The Gatekeeper's Secret by Eva Pohler

When Zeus invites Therese and Thanatos to a party on Mount Olympus in their honor, they and the other gods who have formed the Athena Alliance are immediately suspicious of a trap. They fear Zeus has learned of their desire to free Metis and Cybele and to stand up for all the women he has wronged. Although Therese recruits Dione, Amphitrite, and others to the Alliance, Pete has unwittingly sabotaged their plans by revealing to Zeus the prophecy from the ghost of Mr. Holt. And now, the day that might have been the most wonderful day of Therese’s life (her wedding day) will be wrought with conflict where someone close to her is fated to die. Can Therese and the other gods in the Alliance bind the almighty Zeus and restore justice and true democracy among the Olympians? Or will Zeus succeed in swallowing Therese and separating her from Thanatos for all eternity?

My Review:  


This is the fifth book of the series and once again Eva didn't disappoint. Therese and Than are planning to get married and Pete is desperately trying to tell her something. When she doesn't answer him, he goes to the one who he feels could help Zeus (we all know this is not good). This then sets off another series of events that test Therese and her desire to make everything right. 

Eva once again writes a great book and I am looking forward to book 6!!

The Gatekeeper's House by Eva Pohler

Eighteen-year-old Therese Mills has second thoughts about marrying Thanatos when she learns no god has ever been faithful to his wife. Before she can move into Hecate's rooms, however, the Underworld is attacked, she and her friends are crushed, the souls are unleashed, and a malevolent goddess threatens to unhinge Mount Olympus.

Hypnos has just made a deal with Hades to have his turn in the Upperworld, but before he can tempt Jen with a kiss, he's called back to rebind the souls and defend the House of Hades, and he unwittingly puts Jen and her family in harm's way.


My Review:

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!

Burnt Devotion by Rebecca Ethington






Title:  Burnt Devotion
Series: Imdalind Series
Author: Rebecca Ethington
Release Date: March 22, 2015


 Burnt Devotion, Book 5 in the Imdalind Series. Dawn of Ash - the previously announced book five has now been moved to book 6. Yes! An extra book. If you        have been waiting for the next installment of The Imdalind Series this is the book you         have been waiting for!

--

It was supposed to be the final battle, the one to end Edmund’s line, his life, and free the magic Edmund had taken from the world. That was how it was foreseen. The end of the battle that has raged for centuries, unbeknownst to the mortals around them, the battle that would end with Joclyn’s death.

But it did neither.

The battle still reigns, Joclyn still lives, and the sight that was given eight hundred years ago is broken.

And it’s not the only one.

          Sights that were once thought infallible have become nothing more than scattered             glass, with broken pieces shattering into incorrect visages. Sain clings to the magic that                 he knows to be true, but there is something else, something that he is not saying.                              And what he does say is no longer adding up.

Something is wrong.

Ilyan and his people move through the caves, following a sight they hope to be correct, fleeing a battle that should have been the end while the battle within each of them grows with each step.

Ryland fights the monsters his father has infected him with.

Wynifred fights the confusion of who she is.

Dramin fights to live.

Prague may not survive this battle, it may be ripped to shreds… or burned to ashes.
