The Goddess Test

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1)

It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

(My Thoughts)   5  STARS
I have to say Aimee Carter surprised me in the Goddess Test. I didn't see the ending coming at all. She totally caught me off guard with it, and I love when a book can do that. The ending is amazing! WOW! I really liked Kate. She’s handed one of life’s most heartbreaking situations, waiting for her mom to die, and living with death looming is why she can’t let anyone else die, even when it’s a girl who hates her. Kate is strong, caring, and willing to do what it takes so others don't have to go through the same kind of suffering. At first, I didn’t really like how Henry treated Kate. It seemed Kate was giving up everything for him and he didn't seem to be giving anything back to her. But in the end, Henry came through for Kate, and I love his character and can’t wait to see what he does next and how his character will grow. James is also one I'm waiting to see where his character goes. I have a feeling I’m really going to like him in the next book. I really did enjoy The Goddess Test. It’s definitely must read! And so waiting for the second book Goddess Interrupted.
