This was a great addition to The Goddess Test series. Back-story on main characters is always a great thing, and this was no exception. We are in the viewpoints of Hera, Aphrodite, Hermes and Hades. It was refreshing to be able to understand the characters a lot more. To read how they think, and how they feel and what their actions mean, meant a lot to me. I felt that I could understand them better. Especially Henry’s viewpoint. He is such a quiet and mysterious character and to be able to experience what he’s feeling was interesting to say the least. What I didn’t enjoy was that Henry’s version felt rushed. It was way too short. I felt so sad for him. Persephone treats him so badly, and he cared for her so much. Why I don’t even know.

I found out a lot more about Hera this time around and I didn’t like her character at all. She felt whiny and selfish. The same with Aphrodite. Their excuses for their actions felt so selfish and if there’s one thing I dislike in characters, it’s selfishness. I understand Aphrodite is the Goddess of love, but it felt more like she was lust struck instead of love struck. I didn’t particularly enjoy how she treated Hermes. Yes, it seems like I’m hating on all the women characters in this one, but I just couldn’t side with any of them. I miss Kate though.

Aimee is a wonderful writer and I love her spin on the classic Gods and Goddesses. I hope to own all the books in this series. By the way, all the covers are gorgeous. Kudos to the publisher for keeping them all similar.
