I write fiction for teens and adults and teach writing and literature at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where I live with my husband, three kids, two dogs, and two rats (Katniss and Prim, of course). I'm also an avid reader and book reviewer. 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 Tracy Chevalier, Ann Patchett, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Rick Riordan, and Stephanie Meyer. I have too many to name, but those are a handful of them. When I'm not spending time with the family, working, reading, or writing, I can be found watching The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, The Middle, and NCIS.
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 Trilogy, or on Greek mythology in general, I will post them on my website for others to enjoy. I have also added a short video on the Olympians and a fun Jeopardy Game to test your knowledge. Please visit my website for more details.
Thanks for taking the time to read about me and my writing!

As always, Pohler manages to remain mythologically accurate while telling a completely unique and one of a kind tale.
This novel picks up right where the previous story in the trilogy left off. Pohler weaves an intriguing and captivataing tale that tells a love story and a tale of self-worth on many different levels. As an amazing storyteller Pohler draws you in with her immaculately put together storyline. She keeps you there with her brilliant descriptions and narrative that are so clear and inviting that they allow you to walk this world with the characters.
Although we got to know many of these characters in the previous novels, their true selves become even more apparent in this novel. Pohler continues to develop the main characters as they continue to grow as individuals and as a couple. She also gives us further insight into the hearts and minds of the supporting characters, allowing her readers to see why and how the conflicts in this novel and the series as a whole, came to pass. Overall, her character development is unique in that the characters, regardless of their age, learn and admit things about themselves as we learn them. Self-growth and realisation is a never-ending process in this story.
This novel was a great ending for the Gatekeeper’s Trilogy, even though I still want more time with these amazing characters who have wormed their way into my heart.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I just couldn´t stop reading. There was a lot of drama. I kind of still hold a grudge for Ares. He was such a Pain in the As"#&&...
Therese finally finds her purpose (Kudos for her). I would have been so mad if she didn´t. From the fifteen year old teenage girl we met at The Gatekeeper´s Sons to this installment, Therese looks way much more mature. Ther and Than have to work so much in their relationship because there´s always someone trying to keep them apart. They have one problem, after another, after another and so on. When you think everything is fixed and settled. Pum.!, something else happens.
You have to read the three books to understand the Plot.... Obvioulsy duh.! (Because I´ve read several reviews that say the plot was confusing)...Anyway..Therese and Than have to work separately to get together.. Why?! Because There´s aunt (view spoiler) and in order to save it, Therese goes on a mission first by Hera who wants her apple back and then Artemis who wants to get back with her one true love....
There were a lot of good moments that made me chuckle or show a friend what a character said. Unfortunately I was reading it in my jobs computer in a pdf file and I didn´t save any quote :(
Jen being abused as a child by her father was a very strong topic and I think it was some kind of filler in the book. Even though Than switches places with Hip throughout the books we don´t see him very often. I guess Mrs. Pohler is going to use that as reference for a new sequel maybe Jes in love with the God of Dreams ... AKA Hip ?!! If so I would really love to read something of those two ;) Hip is such a player. I hope Eva is working on him for our sake ;).
I can´t really give a whole review explaining my whole likes and dislikes because I would be giving a huge spoiler.!! and you must read this book to make up your mind about it. Everything said here is things we already knew since first and second book.
