The Goddess Legacy (Goddess Test, #2.5)

               The Goddess Legacy

               (Goddess Test #2.5)

For millennia we've caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aime e Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows.

Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness....

Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal....

Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another....

James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others-but never knew true loss before....

Henry/Hades's solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope....

Five original novellas of love, loss and longing and the will to survive throughout the ages.
Paperback, 304 pages
Expected publication: July 31st 2012 by Harlequin Teen 
 The Goddess Legacy is absolutely amazing. I'm so glad Aimee Carter wrote this book to show the whole backstory for the Goddess Test characters. It gives me the totally twisted insight to the characters that I've come to love so much in Carter's awesome Goddess Test series. With the intriguing backstory of their life as the original six sibling’s council, plus their children, I kept thinking back to Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted and saying, Okay, now I understand so much more and why this character did this or that. My favorites, of course, were Henry (Hades), Persephone, and James (Hermes). I love getting to see the full story of what happened between these three, and the depth of Henry's pain that James caused. I couldn't believe James was trying to do the same with Kate that he did with Persephone and laughing to myself, saying, Dang! James, boy. Don't you ever learn from your mistakes? I'm just surprised that Henry didn't rip James a new one when he tried this again with Kate, but James does have a soft heart for the ladies in distresses, especially when it's Henry's ladies.

I also loved seeing this from Henry's point of view and knowing what all happened to him and the reason why he thinks the way he does…and why he treated Kate like he did in the first two books. My feelings were proved right about Walter(Zeus). I always thought he was a real jerk, but now seeing what he actually did to Hera (Calliope) and the rest, I realized what a bigger, greedier jerk he truly is. And Ava (Aphrodite) and Persephone, their cat fight over Adonis and over James (Hermes) I know more of why these two girls hate the sight of each other. I love this part with these two.

I could go on with the awesome, fascinating insight with all the lives of these characters, but Carter has done such a super amazing job with giving the history of these characters. And if you love Goddess Test series as much as I do, you will want all the deliciously twisted details of back-stabbing, power-play, and forbidden lust with the Gods and Goddesses for yourself. I am so looking forward to The Goddess Inheritance so much more now that I got all the dirty little deeds of the gods and goddess lives. I highly recommend The Goddess Legacy as a must read, and Thank you Aimee Carter for another awesome novel.
