Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.

During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

My review of:
The Goddess Test
Goddess Interrupted 

Though I have read the past few books in the series and didn't end up not overly impressed, I started reading The Goddess Inheritance hoping that it would outshine the previous two.Though it still wasn't spectacular, I did like it better than I did the second book in the series.

Like in the last two books in the series I really didn't like the main character, Kate. She often acted on compulsion and did things that didn't seem logical. I really don't think the character seemed to think things through very much, and very little emotion was portrayed in the writing.

Other than Kate many of the other characters I really didn't like. Some were plain rude, others had some of the same issues as Kate did, and many of them were very hard to understand. I really, really haven't like Henry in any of this books, and this time is no exception. I have no idea why anyone would like him, but that is my own personal opinion I suppose. He really doesn't seem like all that interesting or nice of a guy in my point of view. I really don't how Kate began to just accept him as her partner in the first place.

Just like in Goddess Interrupted, I really thing there was very much going on in the story. Pretty much nothing happened other than Kate going to go see someone over and over and over and over and over.... and then a random scene in between all of that.

Finally... there's going to be a spin off. I don't think I'm going to read it. Though I liked the first book in this series a bit, I really don't think there is going to be any way that it will be better after the second and third books in the series. 
Maybe more like 2.5...


  1. I have mixed feelings about this series. I really liked the first two, but that was mainly because I love Greek mythology. Kate...I have some issues with her. And I've never really liked Henry either. But the Greek mythology is really interesting to me, so I'll still read the last one. But a spin-off? I'm not sure how I feel about that.
    Anyway, great review!

  2. omg I totally agree!! all Kate did WAS go visit everyone over and over again. Like you I also only really enjoyed the first book. Wow, we definitely have similar taste..
    a spin off? it depends on who is in it and what the plot is about

    awesome review!
