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 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.
This is the first book in a long while that made me stay up way past the time I usually go to bed. I could not stop reading The Goddess Test. I stayed up until 5:20 am reading this book because I couldn’t help but want to know what was going to happen next.
Aimee Carter wrote a book that will keep you interested until the very last page and even then it makes you want the next book. Everybody in this novel is so well written and alluring. Henry, Kate, Kate’s mom- everyone. One of my favorite things about The Goddess Test was that it took something that a lot of people aren’t really interested in* (Greek mythology) and twisted it into a dark, romantic, addicting tale that I couldn’t help but fall completely in love with.
I recommend this book to anybody who loved good books because The Goddess Test is definitely one of the best YA novels I’ve read in a great while. The Goddess Test is addicting, mysterious, and written impeccably. You won’t be able to resist it!
*I love Greek mythology, I always have.
