Review: The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

9681214[1]Goodreads Description:

Every girl who had taken the test has died.

Now it’s Kate’s turn.

It’s always been just Kate and her mom – and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate’s going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear that her mother won’t live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld – and if she accepts his bargain, he’ll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Kate is sure he’s crazy – until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she’ll become Henry’s future bride and a goddess.

If she fails…

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review: I love this book to death. And WOW! The ending…
Greek mythology is my passion! I plan on getting a degree in mythology and doing a bunch of boring stuff that involves interesting ancient Greek artifacts. Either that or be an astrologist, and make money off of cards.
I liked the authors perspective on all of the gods and goddess. In the end the book really surprised me. But most things didn’t get explained. And all I can hope for is that my unanswered questions get explained in the second book or else I’m going to have a chat with this writer.
I was very found of Kate at the beginning of the book. I was scared she was going to change, given the fact that her surroundings drastically changed, but she didn’t change that much. And what did change changed for the better.
Even though I rated this book a 4, it is one of my favorites. I doubt  that any other Greek mythology book can compare to this rare find. But if there is a book like this then I will find it. And I will cherish it as if I’m cherishing a baby.
