I have always been in love with Greek Mythology; so once I heard about The Goddess Test I had to buy it and give it a read. It was not anything like The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan. The Gods and their myths weren't portrayed under his standards nor from the original text that we all come to know. Aimee Carter has intricately twisted the most enjoyed Young Adult (YA) genre, with Greek mythology as well as added some mystery.
Unlike most books we read where we often are capable of predicting what comes next, that is not the case here. With each page I flipped, it was all news to me. At most times never knowing what comes next.
Right from the beginning I was caught off guard from the strong empathy I had for the relationship between Kate and her mother. A result from Aimee Carter's vivid story telling. Kate sacrificed WILLINGLY to always be by her mother's side. Trying to spend every minute that her mother has left. Not ever living a normal teenage life that usually consisted of friends, parties, and even boys. So much so that I admittedly cried at only being on pg 17.
The tests that Kate must pass are 7 tests that aren't known to her. Being tested when she didn't even know that they were happening. Her resentment towards Henry and his home changes through the book, and you'll come to find out that Henry aka Hades isn't at all who we thought he was. I can't say much more without giving away the juicy parts. BUT! I am pleased to say that the ending was quite pleasant. Though cliffhangers are occasionally welcomed and greeted with a "Yay, that means there's another one" this did not end that way. I am very content with the ending. I loved how things played out. AND! I WILL read it's following: Goddess Interrupted (The Goddess Test #2). <== Yay, that means there's another one!! =D
