FROM EVA POHLER:
Immerse yourself in heart-throbbing romance, daring adventure, and epic battles against gods and monsters. Connect with beloved characters whose big hearts navigate them through tumultuous times.
Thanatos, the god of death, has never been kissed until seventeen-year-old Therese, in a coma after her parents are killed in a car crash, thinks she's dreaming and kisses him.
Desperate to follow her after she awakens, he bargains with Hades for a chance to live as a mortal in the upperworld. Hades agrees but demands that Thanatos take the Furies and help Therese avenge her parents' murders.
Please join me in bringing the gods of ancient Greece to life with a tenth anniversary edition of The Underworld Saga in three hardback volumes (one trilogy per volume) with new dust jacket art, along with a never-before-seen epilogue starring Dionysus--a collector's dream currently only available through this Kickstarter campaign.
Each jacket will cost me $250, but I've set the campaign goal at $500. There will be lots of other production costs, too, but $500 will get the project rolling. The first dust jacket is done, except for the spine work.
The case underneath will look something like this, featuring the helm of darkness (and volume two will feature the trident and volume three the lightning bolt):
And when the three spines line up, the spines together will create a single image, yet to be determined.

Here's what readers have said about The Underworld Saga:
"Thanatos is fantasy YA like it's supposed to be done. Pohler uses the backdrop of the Greek underworld to craft a tale that hits all the emotions. The romance came in bite size chunks that kept me hungry for more. And what a better leading man than the god of death himself? Throw in a mischievous brother--the god of dreams--three overprotective, bloodthirsty sisters, who happen to be furies, and you have a book that is impossible to put down." ~Quinn Loftis, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Grey Wolves Series
