Death had never been kissed, until now . . .


Thanatos meets seventeen-year-old Therese while she's in a coma hovering between the realm of the dead and the realm of dreams. A lucid dreamer, she takes control of her dream and kisses him, unaware that he is Death.


It was his first kiss. No one, in his long existence, has ever wanted to kiss Death.


After Therese awakens from her coma, Thanatos is desperate to find her. He makes a deal with Hades and goes to the Upperworld as a mortal to pursue her and to see where it might lead.


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.


*Formerly The Gatekeeper's Sons, this series has been edited so that the main character begins her journey at age seventeen.


Praise for Thanatos:


"Got this for son but ended up reading it myself. And very quickly purchased all the following books in the saga."

--Miss C. ★★★★★

 

"Even though I'm not in the target audience (I'm over 40 and can no longer be called a young adult!) I really enjoyed this book. I loved the story and the characters are believable and engaging. I became really invested in their trials and tribulations. There's some real emotion in here, I even found myself with tears in my eyes on a few occasions."

--Kirsty Smith ★★★★★

"I really enjoyed this series...started with the first book and wanted to keep reading until I got to the end. It's a fun blend of mythological characters, paranormal, romance, adventure, and while I haven't been a young adult for a very long time, I still enjoyed reading this series. It is also one I can see myself reading again."

"Great plot and character development. Greek mythology blended with modern themes. Highly recommend."

--Lillian ★★★★★

 

"I really enjoyed reading this book! To me it was sort of a cross between Twilight and The Hunger Games with some wonderful Greek mythology thrown in for good measure! I actually learned something by reading this book and it actually peaked my curiosity into learning more about the Greek gods and goddesses. Looking forward to reading more in the series!"

--Robin E Casey ★★★★★

 

"I absolutely loved and enjoyed this book! Once I began reading, I was immediately hooked and wondered why I hadn't read it sooner, since I'd downloaded it quite some time ago. Loved it! The characters are believable, the plot moves quickly and keeps the reader engaged, and it is quite easy to become emotionally attached as the Therese, the main character, goes through so much."

--Dusty Rogers ★★★★★

The ferryman of the dead is forced to leave the life he’s always known.

Apollo has had a vision: as the life of each soul flashes before Charon’s eyes, the ferryman ages like an old man. Charon needs to experience his own adventures to become youthful again, or he will soon die.

The last thing Charon expects is to fall in love with a mortal woman—someone he can’t take with him when he returns. Charon must decide whether to abandon the love of his life or his duties.

While Charon's Quest shares the world of The Underworld Saga (a bestselling paranormal romance/urban fantasy), it can be read before or after or anytime in between the rest of the books in the saga.

Is it love or addiction?


Seventeen-year-old Gertrude Morgan, the only child of one of the wealthiest couples in America, is shipped away from her home in New York City to the American school in Athens against her will.


But the city of Athens has secrets.


Her host family calls them "tramps." In Greek, they are called vrykolakas, or "vryks," which sometimes gets translated to "freaks." They are the vampires of Athens, created centuries ago by the Maenads. They live in caves beneath the acropolis without economic resources and according to rules imposed on them by the Olympians. First and foremost, they are forbidden from turning humans into vampires. The human will not turn unless all of the blood is drained, so a vampire is allowed to drink up to one pint per month from a willing mortal.


Some mortals are willing because a vampire bite will infect the body for six hours, and during that time, the mortal has the powers of the vampire: flight, invisibility, strength, speed, x-ray vision, and mind control. Such great power can become irresistible, though dangerous and addicting to mortals...


As seventeen-year-old Gertie, studying abroad from New York, uncovers the unfathomable secrets of this ancient city, she becomes involved with a handsome vampire. Is it love that attracts her, or the temporary powers from his bite? She's more confused when her heart is drawn to the vampire's enemy--a demigod sworn to protect the city--and she becomes an unwitting catalyst to war.


This series shares the word of The Underworld Saga.

"Terrific read! What a wonderful book! A different vampire book that looks at them from another direction. This book was a fantastic read and was extremely hard to put down!"--Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★★


"I decided to read a little before going to sleep. I started reading and at 5:00 a.m I finished the book. It was that good!

I am hooked and will be reading all 3 in this trilogy."--Erika the book lover ★★★★★
