Review: The Goddess Inheritance

The Goddess InheritanceThe Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love or life. Henry or their child. The end of her family or the end of the world. KATE MUST CHOOSE. 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.

As frustrating as Goddess Interrupted had been, The Goddess Inheritance made up for it immensely. At the end of the previous book, Kate was kidnapped by Calliope, and we begin this one with her a prisoner at Cronus’ island, with Calliope using the threat of taking her baby. Calliope, has not really grown as a villain, by which I mean she is still that one-dimensional jealous woman as she has been throughout the series (with the exception of the Goddess Queen short story) but Cronus begins to emerge as a formidable foe. He was a big threat before but now he is in the flesh, trying to have Kate be his Queen in exchange for his mercy.

The plot in this book spans through several arcs, which meant we had lots of stuff going on. First Kate was rescued, then Henry had to be rescued, then they have a battle, he has to be sort of rescued again – eventually though the battle is won by a literal Deus Ex Machina (which is why I was sort of disappointed). The ending was bittersweet, though, and ushers in a new era for them. I definitely liked how Kate was challenged through the book, but it also did not hurt that Cronus had a soft spot for her. Seems her status as Queen of the Underworld, as someone who knows loneliness and death, does have an effect on others! It also brought out the ex-mortal in her, which worked in her advantage. Overall, a good conclusion to the series!
