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.
