My English review
I really liked the first novel and the short story we discover here is placed between the first and the second volume of the series. We had not had the opportunity to see Kate far from Henry and it was a pleasure to discover that here.
Kate is therefore with James on the way to Athens but they stop so she can be presented to Pollux and Castor, two persons on the run, trying to hide from the gods. But of course, as soon as they meet, Henry and Walter, who were ...more
Wow, Aimee has done it again and blown me away with her amazing storytelling. I absolutely loved The Goddess Test which I read early last year after getting it for review from Netgalley and it still sticks with me as one of the best Greek Mythology retellings. I love the perspective Aimee takes and how you see a nice, loving side to Hades, something I would never have thought of before reading this series. Add that to the fact that I adore mythology, specificall ...more
So basically the main character, Kate, is Persephone. Only she isn't because Persephone gave up her immortality and is now chilling in the Underworld (I have no intentions of reading further in this series, but ...more

—Puede que tú no aprecies tu matrimonio, hermano, pero yo aprecio el mío. —Henry le dirigió una mirada acerada—. Respeto y honro la opinión de mi Reina.
Nunca lo había visto de esta manera. Pero Hades es el más hermoso de los tres hermanos. Hermoso por así decirlo, fiel.
En todas las películas que he visto, que trata de mitología griega, ponen a Hades como el perro, el malo, el odioso, el Rey del Inframundo, pero Henry deshace toda la opinión negativa que te ...more
I forgot how BAD this series is. (I didn't remember hating the first book as much.) The writing is amazingly bad. The dialogue is so bad you want to read it out loud and laugh at it. The plot, everything is ridiculous. Fight scenes out of nowhere, out of character gods. Just stupidity.
So this wins one of my worst books spots.
Don't waste your time or braincells.
I found a plot, that while a novella told me what I needed to know! Filled with some danger, some humor, some brotherly love and great dialogue, The Goddess Hunt by author Aimee Carter looks to be a lighter paranormal series with some great ideas, characters and just enough ...more
In deel 1,5 lees je over het moment waarop Kate het huis van Henry verlaat en voor 6 maanden de wijde wereld in trekt. Ze gaat samen met James naar Griekenland voor een zon, zee, strand vakantie, althans dat dacht ze. Daar aangekomen ontde ...more
This takes place immediately after the events in The Goddess Test (book 1). Kate and James are off to Greece to begin Kate's six month sabbatical from Henry. Them going together sort of bother's me a bit with James' known interest in her. And she JUST got married to Henry! Why couldn't it have been Ava that went with her or something?
Anyways my initial thoughts were Greece is a great choice place. it would give her the opport ...more
I liked reading from Henry's point-of-view. I wish there was a book all about him. He brings a different perspective to the goings-on within the books. I hope that Ms. Carter brings more of his thoughts into the next book. His ideas and thoughts about everything that was happening were very interesting to read. I enjoyed it.
And while I enjoyed this, Kate still gives me trouble. Kate is a fiesty, interesting girl, but she's not my favorite heroine. Her mat ...more
The character's motives seem to change a lot between the books. I think that the first two books (The Goddess Test and this one), you can seem who Henry is as a character, but in Goddess Interrupted, it is completely different. I'm not sure why so much change is ...more
When Kate elects to spend her first six months away from her new husband henry travelling Greece with James, she runs across two rogue demi-gods, Castor and Pollux, and elects to help them escape capture after a thousand ears on the run.
The Goddess Hunt is not aptly named – it’s not about anyone hunting Kate, but about the hunt for the two demi-gods, twin brothers Castor and Pollux. According the legend, one of them is immortal and one mortal, an ...more
I feel like we got spoiled with The Goddess Hunt. It is told from alternating points of views, Henry's and Kate's, and it was lovely.Along the way we see how Henry feels about Kate and we learn about Kate's insecurities in regard to her future with Henry. I just loved hearing from Henry because I love him as a character and he masks his emotions so much, that seeing into his head was really neat. I really h ...more
Omgg Me encanto! Es cortito y se lee muy rapido es algo fresco que entretiene y la verdad hace enamorarte mas de los personajes. Si leiste el primer libro, estas en la mitologia griega y quieres leer algo rapido es el perfecto
Omggg Hades dios muero con el es tan asjksjsjkhdg. Kate es muy noble la verdad es que es buena chica y eso me gusta mucha fiel a sus ideales y fuerte i like that. James es un amor tambien pero Hades is my Bae ...more
Do you remember last 2 week’s Friday issue? Yup, I’m continuing with Aimee Carter’s Goddess Test series. And actually I’m putting it in mini review section, as it is a really small novella. I doubted if I should write the review, but I thought it would be good, so here it is.
The book is a small adventure of Kate’s and James’s while she went on her trip to Greece, yes, the book starts nearly right after the events in Goddess Test, so if you haven’t read the book ye ...more

I think anyone who is reading this series should definitely read this before they read Goddess Interrupted. I'm not sure if it is going to play a part in the next book or not, but the fact that she pissed off Walter (Zeus) seems like it is going to be important.
It also strengthens where she stands. Where she stands with Henry and where she stands on her feelings about the Gods in general. I liked this becaus ...more

Having passed the tests and won immortality, Kate is free for the summer. Not really wanting to leave her new husband, Henry, but forced by her mother to remember she is still a teen finding her way, Kate heads to Greece with James. What should be a pleasant summer trip is far from it when James decides to visit some very old friends. Too bad they don't want to be found especially by the likes of the Gods. Drawn into the struggle of Lux an ...more
Annoyingly for us UKers, this novella (set between books 1 and 2) actually came out AFTER book 2. I think it would've been good to read the stories in the order Carter planned.
Kate is on her 1st 6-month break from Henry and she wants nothing more than for summer to be over so she can get back to Henry (and officially become the Queen of the Underworld) and James is determined to make her summer with him unforgettable. They're in Greece and Jam ...more

"And an asshole. I am quite proud.”
En menos de medio año, volvería a ser suya, y se aseguraría de recordarle por qué se había casado con él en primer lugar. Hasta entonces, la espina que James había clavado en su corazón sólo podía hacerlo más profundamente, pero como había hecho durante los últimos miles de años, tendría que soportarlo.
Por Kate. Por sus vidas juntos. Y porque no tenía otra opción.
