Book Review: The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter

Title: The Goddess Inheritance
Author: Aimee Carter
Series/Novel: Goddess Test (Book #3)
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology, Romance, Young Adult
Pages: 283
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Year Published: 2013
First Line: “Throughout his eternal life, Walter had witnessed countless summers, but never one as endless as this.”

“Love or life
 Henry or their child
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.
During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can’t stop her- until Cronus offers a deal.
In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he’ll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.
With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.
Even if it costs her eternity.”

My Rating: 3.5/5

This latest instalment in the Goddess Test series fallows Kate through becoming a woman, a war and many other life lessons. So many that it’s hard to believe it’s compacted into just over 280 pages. I think that this book was ok for me, but it wasn’t great. I thought that there would be so much more too it and it just kind of left me lacking. As well, this book was focused to much on Kate, who has changed as a character throughout the series. I understand that it is from Kate’s perspective, but after the past novel about some of the other gods and goddesses I was hoping that we would get a little more insight into their lives. This book did capture the ideas of good and evil in an interesting matter.
I would recommend this series to a younger group of teenagers probably around the ages of 16. It was just slightly to naïve for my taste.

Thanks for reading,
