The Goddess Inheritance
The Goddess Inheritance was a bit of a nail biter from beginning to end. The battle that has been looming since the series began comes to a head in this book and everyone on the council had to consider what they would be willing to give up top save the world. Perhaps the most touching part of this story involved Kate and Henry’s child. I won’t give away too much, but I will say that it added a very special dimension to their love story and my shipper’s heart was full. While there were characters that were definitely 100% evil, there were others that were more conflicted. I really like that because pure evil is so boring. I need a villain with depth, and this book certainly gave me those types of characters.
There are a lot of Greek mythology based series out there and this one is definitely in my top two. It does a good job of combining the original myth with the modern world, giving it a sense of history and a present day context all at once. There is something very appealing about Kate and Henry’s relationship and I think it’s the subtlety of it. Henry is one of those still waters run deep types and his lack of huge, loud declarations makes the dynamic a little different than what I usually find. I was very satisfied with the conclusion and those that are fans of the series will feel the same, I think. It was a book that was not without sacrifice and loss, but I always love a bittersweet ending. I am sad to see this series end but I am looking forward to reading Aimee Carter’s next project.
I received this galley from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
