Publisher: HarlequinTEEN

Summary

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 the 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. (courtesy of Goodreads)

What's Divine About The Goddess Test series?


I'm honored to be a part of the Blog Tour for The Goddess Inheritance, the final book in The Goddess Test series.

What makes The Goddess Test series so divine? It's the perfect combination of great characters, a fascinating mythological background. I've never been a big fan of Greek mythology, but the Goddess Test series makes these ancient myths come alive. It's the perfect series for people like me who learned the myths in school, but doesn't entirely remember them.

Kate and Henry are the heroine and hero of this series. Kate is the human who goes to live with the gods. She is a study in contradicting. Extremely giving and self-sacrificing, but also impulsive, temperamental, and hard-headed. Henry is hard to love at first. He guards his heart so carefully that he seems like an emotionless shell. But really he is kind, sensitive, honorable, thoughtful, and haunted by lost love. Not only are the main characters of this series fully fleshed out, but you have a whole host of strong side characters. I can't really say too much about them without giving away the main surprise of the first book, The Goddess Test, but I promise that they are all flawed characters with independent lives that we learn more about as the series goes on.

If you really want to get a feel for the characters and the mythology, I'd actually suggest starting with The Goddess Legacy, a collection of novellas, which tells the story of the gods and goddesses who form the backbone of the series. We learn how Henry became Hades and see the origin of his pain.  We see how the "adults" in this series are really the devious, flawed gods and goddesses of traditional Greek mythology that everyone loves to hate. The Goddess Legacy (it's technically Book 2.5) gives away some of the major surprises of The Goddess Test, but it made the whole series so much richer. I loved how Ms. Carter enriched the somewhat boring myths that I read in school and made them come to life!

  4. While I don't know the true "divine-ness" about the series, I'm very curious about the depiction of the Greek Gods and how the "parents" are the deceiving ones.

    p.s. I screwed up the address portion. Hit enter instead of the space bar. :(

  12. I think the most divine thing about the series is the story. I love retellings of the myth of Hades and Persephone. And of course Henry himself is pretty divine =)

    ReplyDelete
  13. The mythology would be the most divine thing. I love mythology! I haven't yet started this series, but I just requested the first book from the library. Awesome giveaway!

  21. I LOVE this series. The most divine part I think would be when Henry finally got a clue and told Kate that he loves her and that she made it clearer that she loves him XD

  23. Super excited for the final book! As of now I only have Goddess Hunt and Goddess legacy. I have the prequel and inbetweenquel but none of the actual books in normal series! haha

    As for the most divine part, I think it would have to be the complexity of the characters. When you read the first two books, you hate some of the the characters like Calliope and Persephone, but when you read Goddess Legacy, you learn that there is a reason behind their actions and in the end they are just victims too.

  24. There are so many things that I like about this series. I like that Kate and Henry really work through their struggles and insecurities. I also love how it's based off of Greek mythology.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I loved the way the mythology was mixed in

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love this serious so much!! I think the best part would be seeing the Greek gods in a different light.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would love to learn how this series begin. So my choice is to win a copy of the Goddess Test. I do have the second book The Goddess Interrupted. I do have a habit of finding the series in the middle instead of starting with the first book.

    The divine is Henry telling Kate that he loves her.
