The Goddess Test Review

Title: The Goddess Test

EVERY GIRL WHO HAS TAKEN THE TEST HAS DIED. NOW IT'S KATE'S TURN. It's always been just Kate and her mom--and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear that her mother won't live past the fall. Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests. Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she suceeds, she'll become Henry's future bride and a goddess. IF SHE FAILS...

Mythology collides with this unique story about a girl who tries to do right by her mother.

Kate and her mom moves to a small town where her mother wants to be when she dies. She has cancer and was given six months to live four years ago. Kate knows she is on borrowed time. Kate doe not want to say goodbye to her mother. As Kate starts the new school, she is stared at, as all new students are. Ava is threatened by her, but still invites her to a party. However when Ava and Kate arrive, Kate discovers that Ava is playing a trick on her to send her a message to stay away from her boyfriend. After something horrific happens to Ava, Henry shows up and offers Kate a deal. A deal that will change her world forever.

I love mythology. Therefore, the Goddess Test has been on my TBR pile for WAY too long. I so loved this story and how the Greek mythology was worked into it. There were so many surprised for me, I read through this book extremely fast! It was exciting to see Kate and Henry’s relationship blossom, and thrilling too how Henry never pushed Kate into anything. The plot was so insanely cool to find out about the tests that Kate was going through, and to find out who the council actually was. It is definitely a great read and you will not be disappointed.

My Over All Rating:

5 Star
