Gates of the Underworld Series
Book One: Wrath of the Gods
Why does Ares, the god of war, want me dead?
Cameras, makeup, hair, designer clothing…
In the mortal world, I am my beauty. No one sees beyond it. And it’s been that way for the last 250 years.
Day in and day out—the same.
Until my sister, Janie, dies.
With my world newly shattered, I turn to the only person powerful enough to do something about it—my mother, the goddess Aphrodite…
Who happens to be kind of a bitch.
Regardless, good ol’ Mom informs me that Janie’s soul has been captured by the most hated of the gods, Ares. And he’s keeping Janie hostage in the deepest level of the underworld, the Fifth Gate.
Determined to rescue Janie and with Aphrodite’s ‘blessing’, I travel to the First Gate, the entry point to the Underworld, a hellscape of exploding volcanoes, ashy air and death as far as the eye can see.
Yeah, it’s no Club Med.
Anyway, it’s here I meet the famed Adonis who, in case you were wondering, definitely lives up to his legendary hotness. Unfortunately for him, though, he’s playing sex slave to the power-hungry Queen Azhrea, the ruler of the First Gate (who incidentally insists he wear only a loincloth).
Man-thongs aside, it isn’t long before Azhrea’s army captures me and delivers me to General Adonis. Now imprisoned, I’m at his mercy. And although it seems like Adonis wants to help me, I’m not sure I can trust him because Azhrea’s influence might be too strong.
And even if I’m lucky enough to escape Azhrea and the First Gate, how I am supposed to survive the next four? Not to mention the final face-off with Ares, who wants my head on a silver platter, owing to the hatred he harbors for my mother.
What’s that old phrase about the ‘sins of the parent being visited on the children’?
This newest entry in the world of Greek mythic romance will grip you with plenty of sexy gods, multiple POVs, a kick-ass heroine, magic, mystery and danger.
WRATH OF THE GODS is a medium-burn romance that’s rated 18 + owing to quite a few F-bombs, captive situations, and graphic descriptions of man-thongs. Oh, and it ends in a cliffhanger. You’ve been warned.
Book Two: Relics of Ruin
All I want to do is get the hell out of Dodge…
In this case, ‘Dodge’ is the First Gate of the Underworld, which is like the sister city to Level One, Hell.
But it’s not like I can leave anytime soon—not when Adonis, my only friend (who’s also super hot), just got dude-napped by the absolute worst queen in the history of queens.
No, I mean it. Azrhea puts Bloody Mary to shame…
Anyhoo, even when I’m given the chance to escape and head to the Second Gate of the Underworld, I don’t take it.
Not only do I want to rescue Adonis from the clutches of She-Bitch, but I also sort of, kind of made a promise to Ereshkigal, the original ruler of the First Gate, that I’d help her reclaim her kingdom.
The only problem is Azhrea is proving really freaking difficult to kill.
And when Hades, the God of the Underworld, decides to make an entrance, I really don’t know what to think.
Hades is the ultimate definition of ‘man-perve,’ but he also seems to strangely want to help me. At least, I think he wants to help me…
He warns me that Rurik, the keeper of the Second Gate, is going to be even tougher to vanquish than Azhrea. And getting rid of Azhrea is like trying to get rid of ants.
But the biggest takeaway from my meeting with Hades? I must beware of Ares, the God of War, who occupies the Fifth Gate of the Underworld.
Right. Like I didn’t already know that.
Ares is currently keeping my sister’s soul hostage as he waits for me to make my way through the other four gates, so he can have the honor of killing me and starting a war with Olympus.
I’m really hoping I won’t give him that satisfaction…
Book Three: Daughter of Aphrodite
The Underworld continues to spring new surprises…
After narrowly escaping Gate One of the Underworld, I find new threats and horrors facing me in Gate Two.
Led by the infamous Fallen God, Ruric, Gate Two is a land of black, onyx mountain and hordes of flying demons.
And Ruric is furious that Azhrea is dead, even though she was planning on wiping him out.
While I hope to defeat Ruric and move to Gate Three of the Underworld like yesterday (I am on a time crunch), I know I’m in for even more horrors.
Because Gate Three of the Underworld is lorded by the fierce Kanto, the King of Oblivion, and his level of the Underworld is a place that doesn’t so much mess with your body, but more with your head.
Take, for example, the white fog that fills the entirety of Gate Three and steals your memories as easily as it hides the deadly wraiths who live inside it.
I can only hope I survive Gates Two and Three of the Underworld so I can find out what awaits me in Gate Four.
Book Four: God Of War
The Fourth Gate of the Underworld is a landscape of ice and death…
The first three gates were no walk in the park, but when I arrive at Gate Four, I face all new horrors.
Led by the infamous Fallen God, Chaena, Gate Four is a land of neverending winter, of ice and snow amid a blizzard that could put Minnesota weather to shame.
As if the weather wasn’t bad enough, this level of the Underworld is also guarded by ice fae, whose touch is lethal and who seem like they really want to touch me.
At least I have the hunky Adonis by my side—a man who has become my friend, my protector, and my lover.
Strangely enough, I’m starting to believe I might be able to add one other person to that list (er, not the lover part)… Hades, The Lord of the Underworld, the supreme god of this terrible place.
Believe it or not, Hades keeps popping in at the most unexpected moments to deliver me from whatever awfulness I’m facing. And he’s got a message for me: he’s rooting for me, whatever that means.
I can only hope I survive Gate Four and Chaena’s deathly winter so I can make it to the Fifth Gate and finally face-off with Ares.
Book Five: The Fifth Gate
I’ve made it through all the levels of the Underworld, and I’m about to come up against the man who is responsible for all of this…
Ares, the God of War.
And I don’t know what’s going to happen. Sure, I’m a demi-goddess, but my power is nothing in comparison to Ares’.
Not only that, but I’m alone on this mission. After being wounded in the fourth gate, I’ve left Adonis behind.
I can only hope I have an ally in Hades, but I have a feeling the God of the Underworld is playing his own game.
I can only hope I can defeat Ares, find my sister’s soul, and make it out of the Underworld in the two days I have remaining.
