Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
In The Gatekeeper's Sons, Therese and Thanatos, the god of death, met and fell in love. In The Gatekeeper's Challenge, they did everything they could to be together, even break an oath on the River Styx. But the Olympians don't tolerate oath-breakers. In this third book in the saga, The Gatekeeper's Daughter, Therese may have finally succeeded in becoming a goddess, but if she wants to remain one, she'll not only have to discover her unique purpose, but also make some allies among the gods. Artemis sends her on a seemingly impossible quest across the world, while Than searches for a way to appease Ares. To make matters worse, her baby sister's life depends on the outcome of her quest.

Memories of Than anointing her body—every inch of it—with ambrosia, his hands stroking her, quickly but lovingly, filled her with desire. “Maybe we should go
against me! But she clenched her fists and kept her stance. Before she could speak, Hades was at her side. “I say we hear her out. Isn’t her fierce ability to stand up for someone she cares about something we gods value?” “Hear, hear!” Persephone cried, and a smile was exchanged between husband and wife. Zeus looked down his nose at Therese and pressed his lips tightly together. He stared at her with an expression that said he was not pleased. She held her breath, wondering if she had just
Ugh!” She opened one of her bedroom windows and leapt out. Chapter Twenty-Four: Vanished Than followed her out the window. “Wait up!” He used his keen vision to scan the perimeter but could not find her. “She better not have god traveled.” He reached out with his consciousness but could not sense her. He prayed to her, “Where are you?” She replied, “I don’t know!” His body stiffened where he stood on the ground outside her house. “What happened?” She did not reply. “Therese?” Nothing. He

The bear moaned in protest. “I’m going to help you,” Therese assured her. “Just hold on a while longer.” She hesitated, wondering if she should let the old bear die and find a younger, stronger bear for her journey, like the younger bear downstream, but the younger bear had her whole life ahead of
