The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter

The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter
Release Date: February 26, 2013
Publisher: HarlequinTeen

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. -

This has been one of my favorite series to come out in a while because I love Greek mythology so much, first, and second because I love the story that Aimee Carter has created in this series.  It's unique to Greek myth, brings something fresh to these old tales, and it is all about Hades who, as you know from prior posts, is my favorite Greek myth god.

The Goddess Inheritance was a perfect ending to what has been a wonderful, entertaining series.  The characters are just as intriguing, loveable, and unforgettable as always.  I loved the new closeness that the reader gets to witness between the Greek god family.  Up until this book, we've seen them but never really got to know them thoroughly.  In this book, a great portion of the story is lent toward building those relationships, integrating Kate into the group, and working as a team to defeat Cronus.  I loved this aspect of the story.

Kate and Henry are, of course, my favorite characters, and I loved them in this book particularly because at this point, all the barriers are down, and they are who they are supposed to be together.  I loved how loving and caring they are together, and how each is so eager to sacrifice for the other.  Kate, in particular, really came into her own during this story.  She has grown, changed, matured, and
has reached new depths.

The story itself was exciting and suspenseful.  Loved the fighting!  Also, it was probably, at least to me, the most emotional of the three books, which gave it a greater depth and invested me even more thoroughly into events and their outcome.  There was a really good twist that, although I suspected it, was still a bit of a surprise to me.

Aimee Carter has created an amazing world here, and her storytelling made it come alive.  All in all, this is one of the most beloved series I've read in the last two years.  This book was an amazing and had a rather perfect ending to round things off.  My only regret is that it's now over, but I know I will be rereading these books for years to come.
