Wow! What an amazing journey! I am astounded. Sensational! Five great stories, heart –wrenching, exciting, wincing and cheering, though I can’t bring myself to feel too badly for any of the Greek gods, well …Er… except for Hades- Henry because they are psychos!
Aimee Carter is a very talented writer! Carter is just too much and I can’t wait for the next chapter of her writing career… after the Goddess test series because Carter tells stories that captivates and bring old tales back to existence anew. I never get tired of the way Aimee Carter portrays her Greek gods and it’s amazing to read about their actions and reactions to certain issues. Honestly, its just plain weird! And the Drama! OMG! Kate has a lot to fix in her new family, and I am glad she has the strength to take them on because after reading this book, I am certain she is what the gods need. The Goddess legacy was no different from Carter’s books it was enriching, fascinating, emotionally draining and I loved every minute I spent reading this masterpiece. I love how some of our questions where answered and I smiled at Henry’s reaction when he’d first seen Kate and hers to him! The only problem I had with this book, is that it was too short especially Henry/Hades tale, but no matter I would let my imagination go wild.
Okay… when they say “the gods must be crazy”, this book took that phrase literally! Take Hera/Calliope for instance, I understand everything she’d went through and I understand she didn’t get the life she’d wanted, but in the end… she became the worst of the lot! She is prideful and ruthless and bitter! I almost felt sorry for her… Almost. I didn’t! Serves her right! Zeus, well what can I say? He is the male version of his wife; the only difference is that she believes in fidelity in a way and Zeus not so much! The maddening aspect, in a good way … of this book, is seeing that the gods act like teens, and are ruled by their emotions, it was comical and I finally realized that each one of the gods doesn’t really merit to be called a god…. Er… Well… Hades does and Kate too. All I can say is that this book rocked! And I will read it over and over again despite how royally messed up and dysfunctional this family is... er… except for Hades …Agh! Henry. I can’t wait until the third and final book The goddess Inheritance! Well-done Aimee Carter!

Jenn I don't like the change in the cover though, they had pretty much the same girl on all the other covers, now they've got this blond chick instead.

I think it's because the girl on the other books is supposed to be Kate, and since she doesn't have a story in this book they had to put a different girl on the cover.
