Book Review #67 - The Goddess Test (The Goddess Test #1) By Aimee Carter

Become Immortal - or die trying or....

It's always been just Kate and her mum - but now her mother is dying. And when her dying wish is to move back to her childhood home, Kate agrees. So she starts at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear that her mother won't live much longer. 

Then she meets Henry. Dark, tortured and mesmerising. He claims to be Hades, the God of the Underworld. If Kate accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while she attempts to pass his tests. 

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

But if she doesn't.......

My Rating: 4/5

The premise of this book was original and it was getting amazing reviews so I had high expectations for this book. I wouldn't say that the book exceeded my expectations but it definitely met them. 

I liked the aspect about Greek Mythology, there was enough of it to create the aspect, but not too much where it would have felt like a non-fiction text. 

I liked Kate at the start, but she became annoying towards the end. Altogether though I thought that she was a fantastic protagonist. 

I didn't like Henry at all. I found him weird and creepy, and I definitely prefer James to him. 

I will be looking forward to the next book in the series as it will probably be about Kate and James.
