Why the Goddess Test series rocks my socks off

Hey everyone! Happy Friday. icon smile Why the Goddess Test series rocks my socks off Today I have something special for you: as part of The Goddess Inheritance tour hosted by Kismet Book Tours, I get to share ”What’s Divine About The Goddess Series”. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this. I am terribly saddened to see this series come to a close, but I am glad that I get to see it off in such a fun way. Why do I love The Goddess Test series? Find out now.

I feel like The Goddess Test series is very character driven, especially in Kate’s case. Since characters are the most important to me in a story, this is a very good thing. icon smile Why the Goddess Test series rocks my socks off My favorite thing about Kate is her development throughout the trilogy. She truly comes into her own and goes from a sad and alone girl to a powerful goddess who isn’t afraid to voice her opinion. It’s such a drastic change from the beginning, and I adored seeing her become stronger with every book. Also, let me say you do not want to mess with her when she becomes a mother. She will not stand for anyone messing with her child. Go Kate!!

Henry is pretty dang awesome. While he was very cold and dark in The Goddess Test, he learns to open up and love in Kate’s arms. I can’t fault him for his coldness, either. I mean, he’s thousands of years old, his dear wife left him for a mortal, and he’s the god of the Underworld. I am sure that would take its toll on anyone in his situation! My favorite thing about him is that it is so obvious that he adores Kate, no matter how difficult a time he has expressing it. He will do anything to make her happy, no matter the cost to himself. You gotta love a guy that takes care of his woman. icon wink Why the Goddess Test series rocks my socks off

James is another one of my favorite characters. He and Kate were so funny together. He’s always trying to make a move on her which can be quite hilarious depending on the situation. I think James had the biggest heart out of them all, yet also was the most god-like in that he likes to mess around with the mortals. It’s terrible but also true to the god lore. You can’t fault this guy for his ways. He’s honest about them and makes no apologies. icon wink Why the Goddess Test series rocks my socks off You can’t help but love James.

Calliope is the goddess that I loved to hate. Seriously, there is absolutely nothing redeeming about her and it’s brilliant. I could feel Kate’s hatred towards her for all the wrongs that Calliope did to her. Kate will not let this evil being walk all over her or mess with her man. I’m pretty sure one of my favorite scenes involved Kate finally giving her what she deserves.

Besides the character’s, the story line is very original and captured my attention from the first page. Every year waiting for more of Kate’s story was pure torture! Getting to know all of the gods and goddesses as well as their human personas was a very fun time! I love how Aimee gave them little qualities here and there that made them almost human in some ways and easier to understand. The whole Cronus trying to break out of his prison and take over may seem overdone, but I liked the spin that Aimee took on it. This is definitely one of my favorite Greek mythology series. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t already. Since all the books are out, there’s less torture for the readers when the cliffhangers happen. icon wink Why the Goddess Test series rocks my socks off

Kate must choose.

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.
