Goddess Inheritance - Review

The Goddess Inheritance (Goddess Test #3)
by Aimee Carter

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.

My review
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley for an honest review. Nine months have passed and Kate is ready to give birth. She is being held captive by Cronus and Calliope. She has a decision to make if she agrees to do what Cronus ask he will leave the world alone and she can keep her child. If she doesn't he will destroy the world and everyone in it. She has to try and figure out a way to keep her baby away from Calliope save the world and get back to Henry. The future lies with her decisions and she never knows who to trust.

Kate I had mixed feelings with in this book. She has finally grown up but she still makes bad decisions. She wants to do what is right but sometimes she doesn't think before she acts and most of the time it comes back to kick her in the end. If she would sit back and think and ask for help from some people it would be better. However the book would have been a lot shorter as well. She does really stand up to those more powerful to her in the end and I was glad to see that. Henry tries to do what is right in this book but he doesn't trust Kate enough to trust her with his plans. I really wish these two would have learned to work together more in the book. Cronus even if he is the evil guy in these books a soft side comes out in him around Kate and the baby. He does try to protect her when he can. All the other characters make an appearance in this book and you get to see more of them when they come together. Some of them I didn't know what to expect coming from them. I was pleased with how some of them turned out.

This book finishes up the series wonderfully. While I hate to see the series end I do like how it ended. It had plenty of action, betrayal, love and even heartache. I have loved this series from the start. The mixture of mythology and present time is something the author does such a great job of writing about. Most of the characters really grow in this book even the ones who have been around forever learn something about themselves I think. Tragic losses show both sides they have something to lose and to think of what they have left. The reunion is a touching scene in the book and one I really enjoyed. If you like mythology please, please pick this series up it is so wonderful I can't say more about it without spoiling it but I wish everyone would read it.
