Guys, I am beyond thrilled to be taking part in The Goddess Inheritance Tour hosted by Kismet Book Touring. The Goddess Inheritance is the final book in a series I've loved since page one, through all of Kate's ups and downs, and I can't wait to share with you why I think The Goddess Test series is divine. But first, a little about this final installment in Aimée Carter's mythology-themed saga:
Author: Aimée Carter
Series: final book in The Goddess Test series
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: February 26, 2013
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository
Above all else, my favorite aspect of this series is the mythology, which is kind of funny, considering I would have done anything to get out of reading Edith Hamilton's Mythology when I was in school. But Aimée Carter has done something that my teachers only dreamed of doing: she made mythology fun. And while I did enjoy mythology on the whole as a youth, I would have enjoyed it so much more if it had been presented in the way that it is in this series. Not that I think these books are a substitute for what is taught in school, but kids might be more interested in the subject matter if they could see that mythology doesn't have to be boring and stodgy, the way it was taught to me.
Another reason I can't get enough of this series? Despite the fact that Kate is put through the gauntlet time and again, you still kind of want to be her. She's just finding herself when we meet her in the first book, but what girl wouldn't want to be a goddess? Granted, that crazy immortal family is part of the package, but they just make life interesting. The romance and the friendships more than make up for those insane in-laws, though. Kate and Henry's love has been tested, but it is true, and I love how it was portrayed in these books. It's emotionally trying, but it's also depicted as two people, facing their own fears to be with one another, and I can't get enough of it!
I'm going to miss all of these characters so very much, but I'm excited to see what Aimee Carter has in store for us next. And on that note, I'll leave you with some of my favorite quotes from the series:
