The Goddess Inheritance (Goddess Test, #3)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.




I am so sad to see this series end. I am completely smitten with Henry (and James), and this is a bitter sweet moment. This very unique spin on the Persephone and Hades myth captured my heart from book 1 (The Goddess Test). Sadly, Kate's story comes to a end with The Goddess Inheritance.

Just like the other books in this series, there is a lot of drama and betrayal going on. There is also a whole lot of Henry. (sigh) I was so happy see that he had a more active role this time around. He was present throughout the whole book, which made me very happy.

Of course, Kate is still Kate. She has matured a lot since book 2 (Goddess Interrupted). I was very impressed to see who she became. Of course, she's still pigheaded, which causes a lot of problems. That's Kate though.

The plot was pretty quick in this one. I managed to finish it in a little over 4 hours because it was so gripping. In true Kate fashion, she managed to be wishy-washy throughout 2/3 of the book, which really made the plot drag on. I was starting to get frustrated with the whole circular plot feeling, but then things picked up. I was catapulted into a hard-core battle of the wills. It was gripping and heart breaking all at once. Choices were made that had disasterous affects. Some of those choices were gut wrenching... leaving me twisting my face in disgust. You won't want to miss it!

As far as finales go, this was pretty solid. I was pleased with the ending, even if it left me a bit queesy in parts (due to a certain someone's choices). If you have read the other books in Aimee Carter's The Goddess Test series, do not let the finale go unread!

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
