They are tropes. Kate is a total Bella Swan, the new girl whom guys are falling over to accommodate for no good reason. And Ava. Oh God, Ava. So unnatural. View all 9 comments. Jun 21, Savina M. It's official. Aimee Carter is now on my list of Authors who are fucking idiots didn't do enough research, right next to the Casts and dear Alexandra Adornetto.
How can someone fuck up Greek Mythology that bad? Even my twelve-year-old cousin, whose only knowledge of Greek Mythology is from The Lightning Thief , knows that there are twelve Olympians, not thirteen, and mortals can't dole out punishments to gods.
Okay, I've calmed down a little. Now on to the rest of the review. Summary Kath It's official. Summary Katherine "Kate" Winters, is your ordinary goody-two-shoes Mary Sue, who wants nothing but for her mother to live the remainder of her days happy. Annnnd out of the blue, Henry He's Hades, by the way. A fucking stupid name invites Kate to his manor to be his new bride. It's way more romantic than how I just explained it. Trust me. But his eyes drew my attention. Even in the darkness, they shone brightly, and I had a hard time tearing myself away from his gaze.
But it's not so simple. Henry is about to fade away, and unless he can find a new Persephone, his realm in the Underworld will be passed on to Hermes. For some fucking reason. To determine whether Kate is suited for Henry or not, the fucking coucil has Kate go through several tests. They're not just any tests. Yes, testing whether Kate sins or not. Not the twelve labors. Not going on some heroic quest. You wanna know what the test for greed is? Kate's offered a pile of dresses, and since she offered to share it with someone else, she's not greedy.
Kate gets to spend time with her mom, slut-shames Aphrodite, has sex with Henry And they fucking celebrate Christmas. The fucking mythology Since this is the 1 thing that irked me, I will address this first. Look at this stupid list. Let's start off with this list. Zeus doesn't appear much in this book, and the only thing wrong is his name, so let's move on to Hera.
From Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, Calliope was the muse of epic poetry, daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and is believed to be Homer's muse for the Iliad and the Odyssey. You hear that, Aimee? Calliope is a fucking muse. Why the fuck would Hera go ahead and name herself after a muse?
God, at least bother to search up a fucking name next time you write a book. And get this. Hera is in love with Hades. Hera, the goddess of family, so in love with Hades she almost killed Kate for it. Next on the list Doesn't appear in this book much. Moving on. She's actually Kate's mom in this book. Very motherly, very nice, yap yap yap. But wait. What's the name on the right of Demeter's? Wiki again: In Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power to talk to and control animals.
She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis, [ So pray tell, why the fuck would Demeter use Artemis' name? I remember Kate asking about it I just I can't. There are so many stupid inaccuracies about him that I can't list them all. Alright, fine. I'll try. So about the Underworld. For some reason, without Persephone, Hades can't rule by himself, and he's going to fade away.
But why the fuck would the responsibility be passed on to Hermes? He's already the god of messages, thieves, and I forget. He's one of the few that can go in and out of the Underworld freely, yeah, but why him?
Why not Charon, or Thanatos? And the reason why Persephone left was pretty lame. Henry's expression was blank. I did not stop her. So the book says there are thirteen Olympians. Hestia was replaced by Dionysus. When Dionysus was made a god, the Olympians argued on who should give up their place, and Hestia offered to do so. Next, Ares. Not much to talk about. And Aphrodite.
List Chapter or Page:
Ah, the target of slut-shaming. Of course, Aphrodite is portrayed as a bitchy slut here.
Except for Henry, all of the guys eyed her everywhere she went. I wasn't sure what else she'd been expecting. And when two guys, Apollo and Dionysus fought over Aphrodite Apollo, seriously? Yes, because when two guys get in a fistfight over a girl, it's the girl's fault when one of the guys get hurt.
I don't have much to say about the rest of the list, because thank the gods, they don't play a large role. Kate I didn't find Kate to be selfless. At all. She keeps droning on and on about how she wants her mother to be happy, how she wants her mother to stay longer. Seems selfless and filial, but in truth, she only wants her mother to stay longer because she "wasn't prepared to say goodbye".
This was emphasized and mentioned many times in the book. So in truth, Kate is only saving her mother for herself, not actually wanting to download time fore her mom. Kate is a Mary Sue cardboard cutout. It's not the worst part of the book, and I have read about worse heroines, so I'll leave it at there. Conclusion It's been a while since I was so enraged by a book. It's not even a so-bad-that-it's-good book, it's a so-bad-that-it's-bad book. So if you have a working knowledge of Greek Mythology, stay well away.
View all 14 comments. I loved it! Simply, completely, loved it. I can barely begin to say how much. From the very beginning I was caught. I love Greek Myth I always have. The story and characters were brilliant. I loved all the characters They were all so fabulous and entertaining. They were each so different and unique and I loved seeing them in the story.
I think Kate was just brilliant! I think she reacted to things believably and naturally, and she was a wonderful person. She was kind and considerate, while still being strong and brave. I found I really liked Henry. He was a kind, considerate person, and I think he was a great match for Kate. I really felt for Henry, and his history with Persephone.
I like the way the author changed the tale and showed it in a different way, which actually allowed Hades to be the good guy in the picture. I liked the opportunity for him to be an actual person with feelings and a heart The relationship between Henry and Kate was excellent. I really liked how it developed over time and how they got to know one another.
It was very sweet and normal, and I never felt like anything was forced. It seemed very natural and I liked that.
I was shocked with the twists and revelations at the end of this book! I think the author has done an exceptional job here. It was so smart and wonderful NOW, people!!

Goddess Test is another novel that sets an enjoyably creative take on Greek mythology. I also love how this book uniquely centers its story on one of the least liked Greek gods-of course you know him- Hades. I'm reading the sequel in the near but not definite future. View all 7 comments. Feb 25, Kelly rated it it was ok Shelves: I was excited about The Goddess Test from the moment I first heard about it.
The myth of Persephone and Hades has always held a certain fascination for me, and I enjoy reading adaptations of it and seeing what different authors do with the story. The queen candidates must first pass a series of tests, however, and someone keeps mur I The queen candidates must first pass a series of tests, however, and someone keeps murdering the young women before they can complete the tests.
Enter Kate. She has felt set apart from other teens for several years, ever since her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Now Mom has one last wish: Then a classmate plays a prank on her that goes horribly wrong. Only Henry aka Hades , the mysterious resident of Eden Manor, can help Kate, and there is a price to pay: Sometimes it moves a bit too quickly, in fact; it takes Kate several months to fall for Henry, but those months are summed up so briefly that it feels abrupt to the reader.
On the other hand, this quick pace means The Goddess Test is emphatically not one of those YA novels that bogs down in hundreds of pages of angsty school scenes. The Greek gods as presented here are defanged and moralistic versions of themselves, and in most cases not very fleshed out, either.
The problem starts with the nature of the tests: This is an odd fit with Greek myth. The sins are interpreted in troubling ways, too. It disturbs me that Kate is told that she has sinned when the consensuality of the act is dubious at best. At first I thought she was written inconsistently, but as the story progressed it became clear that this wild inconsistency is an essential part of her character. The Goddess Test ends with two occurrences that cheapen everything that has gone before.
One of these occurrences concerns a huge lie that has been told to Kate for a long time. As I mentioned above, though, the writing itself is good. This could be a fun light book for readers who are less obsessed with mythology than I am. Feb 25, Ceilidh rated it did not like it.
I love Greek mythology. I love Greek tragedies. I love the gods and goddesses and what they all represent and the timeless stories that accompany them. As with all people who love something, I am weary with re-imaginings and modern day updates of these tales. Some can be brilliant and really update the text to fit with the modern era, others can fail miserably.
They were handled well and without overtly saccharine bucket-loads of cheap emotional grabs, and it was interesting to see a paranormal YA character dealing with such a difficult problem. Of course, this was quickly shoved aside for the plot, or what substituted for one. How can you make Hades dull? The Hades-Persephone myth was twisted into a more teen friendly shape where Henry was made into the victim, which bugged me to no end. Then again, these characters are so un-godly it makes sense to twist the myths to fit them.
Kate is fine for most of it until she falls into love-struck too-annoying-to-live territory, typical for paranormal YA heroine these days it seems, and Henry is just dull.
None of the immortal characters ever seem like fully fleshed out beings, let alone gods. They never convinced me that they were anything more than childish plot devices. The Greek gods could be childish but they could also be ruthless, passionate, cunning, devastatingly dangerous, charming, every other emotion you could think of.
Goddess Test Series
Here, the characters just served to keep the meandering plot from going too off-road. And this was all well and good for the most part.
Like I said, it was mediocre but not awful. Then we got into the second half and things changed. What made up the supposed plot and the tests that were so important in deciding whether or not a teenage girl was worthy to become an immortal and co-ruler of the Underworld and the dead become more and more contrived to the point where I was rolling my eyes every other page. Not once was I convinced that Kate was goddess material and the so-called tests just made me think that the Olympians need to hire a new manager or something.
How can one establish a relationship if there is no trust and never was from the beginning? And Kate is okay with everyone lying to her, or as they put it, hiding the truth from her to keep her safe because those are the rules. It was poorly constructed, it was incredibly contrived and it was a pure and simple dick move. It immediately destroyed any sympathies I had had with the book.
But the big reveal that makes everything okay for everyone except the reader just throws my ability to care out the window and frankly, it pissed me off. Can we stop using characters, especially teenage girls, as pawns in stories? Can we treat them with a little more respect than this? View all 18 comments. Der Anfang war echt anstrengend und ich war mehrmals kurz davor es abzubrechen.
Es wurde nie etwas hinterfragt, sondern einfach alles nur hingenommen. Allerdings wurde die Story ab Seite echt noch ganz gut und auch das Ende hat mich neugierig auf den 2.
Band gemacht. Okay, this was just so messy and meh and just BAD i don't even know how i got through it and actually finished it, so i'm giving myself a star for my hard work.

This book like Shiver and Fallen were Twilight descendents. The writing style is similar as well as the characters.
James and Dylan are immediately mesmerized by her and want to hang around her. Ava is Alice who's bubbly and enjoys clothes. Kate, on the other hand, hates pretty clothes but is stuffed in them anyway like a human Barbie doll another Twilight factor The other thing that really annoyed me was that the author didn't stay true to Greek mythology at all.
Follow the Author
I love Greek mythology and how Rick Riordan put a new twist on it in his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series but still managed to stay true to Greek mythology. The author didn't do that at all, in fact, she murdered it. I'm sorry but what? Hera in love with Hades? It would have made far more sense it Henry was Zeus and let's not forget Hera was the goddess of marriage, she wasn't supposed to go around falling in love with people.
Let's not forget James who was going to inherit the Underworld when Henry did. Turns out James is Hermes. Hermes, ruler of the Underworld?
Did the author do any research at all? Hermes and the Underworld do not mix. Couldn't she have suggested a more realistic choice like Chiron or something?
At least someone who actually has a connection to the Underworld. And what is with the building stuff out of French fries— architecture was Athena's field. If you're a fan of Greek mythology or original story lines, steer away from this book. Kate Winters has always had her mother by her side, but now she's dying and Kate is driving to Eden, her mothers childhood home, for her last request.
Kate only wants to take care of her mother and spend as much time with her before she goes, but her mother insists she go to school. So Kate reluctantly goes, but is quite content to stay invisible.
She's not here to make friends, she's here to take care of her mother. Soon she meets Henry.
Lonely, haunted, and claims to be the god of the Underworl Kate Winters has always had her mother by her side, but now she's dying and Kate is driving to Eden, her mothers childhood home, for her last request. Lonely, haunted, and claims to be the god of the Underworld, Hades, and while Kate thinks he's crazy, she can't deny that he's brought back a sorta friend of hers back from the dead right before her eyes. But at a price. If he could bring Ava back, does that mean he has the power to save her mother?
See a Problem?
Henry strikes a bargain with Kate, and if she passes the seven tests, she becomes his wife, and a goddess, but if she fails, then she will loss so much more then she ever thought possible.
Do you know the story of Persephone? The land got cold while she was away. She wouldn't eat or drink. Her mother Demeter, pleaded with Zeus on her behave, and eventually Zeus made Hades give her back if indeed she hasn't eaten or drunk anything from the land of dead, but as it turns out, Persephone ate some seeds, so it was agreed that she could spend six months with her mother above ground, but she would also have to spend the other six months with Hades, as his queen.
It is the story of how the seasons came to be. Aimee Carter breaks in the world of Greek Mythology and captures the legend of Hades and Persephone, weaving it into brilliance and beauty in her remarkable debut, The Goddess Test. I've always loved, loved, loved, Mythology. I loved that hate and passion and the creation and destruction of it all. It's always been an element I've been fascinated with, so I went into this book with high hopes and was so glad that it did not disappoint.
Carter brings something fresh and exciting into this awesome world and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I really enjoyed all the characters, in fact there wasn't one I didn't like. Each and every single one of these characters are beyond thrilling, each has there own unique role and each have a part they play, and I gotta tell you, these characters weren't anything I ever expected once this book was said and done. It's just I so adore her strength and tolerance. I mean, look at all the things she's went through?
She couldn't bare to see anyone she loved or cared about or even hated, die. She is the most selfless character that I have ever meet and I loved that through it all, she stayed true to herself. Truly loved him to bits. There is a kindness to Henry that was such a wonder to see in the god of Underworld, and quite refreshing I might add. When you think of Hades, you think cruel, dominating and well, evil, but instead we get someone tortured and haunted by past failures with a guilt-ridden heart but there is almost like an underlining of hope that lingers when every he speaks or moves or touches.
He's captured in a way that is so breathtaking and heartbreaking that it's completely mesmerizing. Such a fascinating creature. While the storyline wraps around the myth of Persephone, it's shaped in a different way. This is the stuff I love about books. Authors get to break away from traditional folklore and create something unique and bright and amazing.
But I can also understand that some readers may not like the idea of there favorite mythology characters being taken out of there original design and conveying them in a different light, but for me, I had a blast with this concept!!
I loved the entire set-up to this world and that ending had me completely floored! It shocked and awed me at the same time. Freaking Kudos! Simply put. I loved this book! It has everything I look for in an escape. Unique, romantic, mysterious, compelling and ingenious. I was captivated from the very first page, till the very last and all I want is more.
An instant favorite! I can't wait to see what Carter has planned next in Goddess Interrupted. Is it yet?!?! A Remarkable debut!! Big thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Teen for giving me an opportunity to view an early copy of this amazing read View all 65 comments. Dec 05, Hannah G rated it liked it. I'm rating this book 3. This book was good. Originally I thought the tests would be more dramatic and not as underwhelming as they were. That was a bummer. But the way the author did do the tests which was do them in plain sight without the heroine knowing was interesting.
Overall I liked this and it was a quick read. One thing I didn't like was that Kate was so selfless. I know that's what most heroines are made of. But what really bothered me was that to save Ava's life afte I'm rating this book 3.
I wouldn't have offered to spent six months out of the year for the rest of my life to bring her back from the dead. So I do wish that Kate did have some self preservation. I liked Henry. What I really liked about this book was how the author put a twist on the classic story of Hades and Persephony.
The Greek mythology was mixed really well in this book. The love story I was kind of like how? How did Kate fall in love with Henry. I felt no romantic or physical connection between both characters. And I would have liked it to be more falling slowly and passionately in love. But it was good not great but good. Jan 07, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aimee Carter is a debut author and only 24 years old!
To start with, I felt abashed that this book made me cry so easily! The Council offer him a deal, they find him a suitable wife within a century and he retains his position. Demeter then finds Ingrid and Henry grows up with her, loving her deeply whether platonic or romantic is unknown. When she comes of age he reveals his identity. And she accepts him, not knowing exactly how much it means to him.
He is devastated by her death and those that follow. He wanted to give up early, but Demeter wouldn't let him and decided to have her own child. When she turned seven Henry went to just look at her in Central Park. But Cerberus ends up ruining Kate and Diana's picnic and is the source of one of her Kate's happiest memories. But it did not just make her happy. Seeing her for the first time gave Henry hope.
Personality Edit Henry is described as the best of the Gods, he is selfless, compassionate and kind. He is quiet on the outside, but very loving. He is brave and seems to be more mature and faithful than his brothers.
