I absolutely loved this little novelette! From the descriptions of the locations to the relationship dynamics of the team it all fit together to make and an amazingly creepy tale of greed, love, fear, and loss. Not to mention awesome music references haha.

If, like me, you are a book worm and you are heading off somewhere (or if you have a quiet hour to yourself), this is the perfect read for you. Just the right amount of horror, with a splash of gore, and a sprinkling of humor makes this little gem a solid 5 out of 5.

A very short suspense thriller. Excellent descriptions and realistic characters. Filled with suspense, action and horror. Quite gruesome in parts which is a must for any horror. Shows you shouldn't mess with the unknown and what greed can do. Recommend to fans of short stories, horror,thriller, action and suspense. Looking forward to a sequel or a longer horror from this talented author :)

I read the description of this story and it kind of reminded me of the book "Sphere" which I loved, so I picked it up and gave it a try. Wow! Strong characterization, creepy scenes, action scenes, and an ending that delivered. A lot for a little book (just a novella) but it sounds like it may be leading into an even bigger story later on. I sure hope so. It was an intriguing concept with a lot of potential.

Overall: Fantastic writing and heart-stopping action. Can't go wrong with that combination.

Who doesn't love a book about treasure hunters and the quest to find hidden riches? This little gem of a story takes you on a quick, action packed, and thrilling ride as you follow the main characters all the way up to the brutal end. It takes some serious talent to squeeze so much information in a short story and manage to do it justice while leaving the reader wanting more, yet Doyle weaves this tale so expertly that once you finish, you'll think twice of open water excursions ever again.

I have to admit I was gripping my kindle and more than once I gasped at the surprises, and oh that ending! A creative story with dark tones that's unique and intriguing. It's a fast read, perfect when you are limited on time. Give this short story a try, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read 18 July 2017
By Drayvenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I adore ancient classical history. I also really love horror. The two are blended perfectly in this short tale. It starts quick, with just enough pause to know who is who before the adventure begins. The foreboding builds fast, with wonderful imagery and taut action. Perfect pacing grabbed me and tugged me to a horrific conclusion. There is allusion we might get more to this tale, I'd like that... Let all Hades break loose.
4.0 out of 5 stars I am not sure if it was on purpose but I love the B rated horror parts of it 3 July 2017
By Diane - Published on Amazon.com

Hades' Gate written by D.J. Doyle.

Ever feared the unknown, dark places, or what may be hidden in those dark places? Not the fear that makes you jump out of your skin but the kind that makes the hair on your neck stand on end and your pulse quicken. Hades' Gate did this to me.

the story moves kind of fast the characters are a tad bit vague, but put together and really exciting. I am not sure if it was on purpose but I love the B rated horror parts of it. You will laugh and have chills at the same time. Not something that happens often.

I am giving Hades' Gate 4 stars out of 5. It's very creative and kept me hooked within the first few pages. The reading was smooth like an expensive liquor. I recommend you take a sip and swish. It will make your senses come alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doyle is at her best probing relationships and playing character’s off one and other 2 July 2017
By Kevin Kuhn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The aptly named Hades Gate delivers on its promise, a dive into deep, murky waters of greed and death. After a brief omen of things to come we meet Evan, James, Becky, Rose, and Jason. This unlikely group of adventures come together in the exotic location of Peloponnese, Greece to search for underwater, forbidden treasure. The story lingers just long enough at a Greek Villa to introduce the characters, establish their relationships, and even teasing a little sexual tension before cruising out to the principal site, a dangerous set of underwater caves.

This is a six-chapter short story or novelette, and in less than ten thousand words Doyle deftly manages to establish six unique characters, explore a couple of striking locations, and tell a harrowing tale. Doyle is at her best probing relationships and playing character’s off one and other. But the finish is just as rewarding, tense and upsetting, using the fantastic final setting of dark, dripping caves to create a real feeling of horror. A rapid plunge from the bright Greek summer sun, into the deepest depths of despair.
