Happy Monday Readers!
By now you know I have a lot of different fascinations with different topics, and this one is no different. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter, takes the reader on a journey into Ancient Greece. It has adventure, characters that any lover of Greek mythology would know, and one tough leading lady.
The description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“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…”
Kate will do anything to make sure she doesn’t lost the only family she has left, her mom. So when she moves to a new school, she meets Henry, who claims he is the God of the Underworld, and can save her mom. She thinks he is crazy until she sees proof that he is who he claims to be. Kate has a huge decision to make. If she agrees to the tests, Henry will keep her mom alive, but if she fails she loses her life and her mother will die. Kate decides to go through with the tests, which prove to be challenging, and way over her head. Will Kate be able to pass the tests to save herself and her mother or will the fear be too much for her to handle, which causes her to lose her life, and her mother? Would you give your soul to the God of the Underworld to save your mother?
What I really loved about this book is Aimee’s ability to draw the reader into the world of Greek mythology, and makes the characters come to life. You will find yourself rooting for Kate to succeed, and you will learn about the true character of Henry. You will laugh, cry, and want to slap the characters a couple of times, but you will go on one wild journey. If you love Greek mythology or just want to read something different, than The Goddess Test is one book you can not miss.
Go on a journey into the Underworld my friends!
