The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

The Goddess Test

[April 19, 2011]


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.
I adored this book.
I genuinely liked Henry. He wasn't this "dark" guy that was really just an ass. He was likable and sweet to Kate, but a little messed up. Understandably so, all things considered. I liked Kate. She was strong and focused and really cared for the people in her life. Her mom, Henry, her "servants." She was just a genuinely caring, intelligent person. 

I really enjoyed the writing. It kept me engaged and was just a fast read. It was mostly predictable, but there were some twists. Though I could kind of tell how it would end, I still needed to know exactly what would happen.

It's an enjoyable retelling of my favorite Greek story. Really well done, honestly. I can't wait for the sequel!
