Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld. But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand.
Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon in the throes of the Trojan War. Learn how their children--Hypnos, Thanatos, Megaera, Tisiphone, Alecto, and Melinoe--came into being. Discover why they were assigned their respective duties as Sleep, Death, the Furies, and the goddess of ghosts. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods.
This prequel to The Gatekeeper's Saga is more than a retelling of the Persephone myth. Many more of the ancient myths are woven together to reveal the conflict, tension, and relationships among the gods in one of the most beloved pantheons in human history.The Gatekeeper's Bride can be read before or after The Gatekeeper's Saga.

Nice twist on an old classic few have not heard the story of Hades and Persephone, this retelling of their tale just makes sense granted a few places majorly pissed me off but not at them, this makes both character's relate ble, and even human...they fall in love, others don't like it or their love, answered so many questions i had during the Gatekeeper's series. it's the perfect setup or stand alone but if you read it first you will have to read the rest of the books no question.....i know my myths and this is my favorite retelling of this tale
I love how Eva created the love story of Hades and Persephone. It's both beautiful and tragic in many ways. She captures Hades in a new light; very different from how Greek mythology depicts him. The personalities of the gods and goddesses are so well defined; each playing a very specific role. I fell in love with this story immediately from word one; watching Hades find his new love to stave his loneliness. Persephone was completely mesmerized by him. It's truly breathtaking, but not without heartache that comes with their many trials. This is only the beginning... If you haven't read the Gatekeeper's series, I highly recommend purchasing the box set or the books individually and going from there. They're worth every penny. 5 stars for Eva Pohler's mythical, awe inspiring creation.
The book blew me away!! I loved the Gatekeepers saga, and this just added to the great Greek world Eva has created. I have fallen head over heels for Thanatos as well as his father Hades. Hades has always been one of my favorites despite the way Disney portrayed him. I love Greek mythology and this is the best version of events I have ever read. I prefer Hypnos, Thanatos, and the Furies being of Hades and Persephone. If you haven't read the Gatekeeper saga, read it first, this book explains things that wouldn't make sense otherwise, but it can be read seperate.
