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.
Gorgeous! Love the girl's blue dress and that background. This might be my favourite cover out of all the Australian covers of the series!


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

After reading The Goddess Interrupted last year, I have been anxiously waiting for the sequel to release because I need to know what happens to Kate and Henry after that ending! While I didn't love The Goddess Interrupted as much as The Goddess Test, I'm glad that The Goddess Inheritance wasn't disappointing!

The Goddess Inheritance is about choices which Kate has to make in her life. The main 'enemy' in this book is Cronus, who strangely desires Kate while brewing a war against the gods. Kate and Henry's fragile relationship is further challenged, with the addition of their child. The story itself is mainly focused on Kate trying to save Henry, her child and also stopping Cronus from defeating the gods. What I particularly enjoyed from this book are the moments between Kate and Henry. Their relationship has faced a lot of challenges but they are finally able to overcome these challenges with their love for each other.

In The Goddess Interrupted, I was sometimes annoyed with Kate. She has some 'trust' issues, particularly about Henry and that becomes a huge obstacle for their relationship to grow and develop. However in this book, Kate finally is able to trust Henry and love him freely without any doubts and uncertainties. Kate has certainly grown and developed throughout the course of the series, approaching problems in a strong way which she would not have done in the previous 2 books.  Henry, on the other hand, also grows from the previous 2 books, starting to be more open and showing his affections more often towards Kate. I also enjoyed reading about the other Gods although Cronus is a character I feel conflicted about. He's 'evil' but I feel pity for him throughout the story.

The Goddess Inheritance is the satisfying conclusion to the Goddess Test series! In this book, Kate and Henry must undergo a final challenge before they can love each other freely without any obstacles. If you love re-tellings of Greek mythology (particularly a certain Greek god called Hades), then you definitely should check out this series!

  2. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this series so freaking much! I thought it was definitely satisfying! Greek mythology is such a favorite of mine :) I agree that though I love Kate, she did annoy me with all her trust issues and whatnot, but it was nice to see a different side to her in this book! I totally loved Henry, but who doesn't? LOL! Great review :)
