Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Kat Winters has survived her Goddess Test, fallen in love, and is approaching the end of her pregnancy. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her child and her husband, Henry. Cronus offers her a deal. If she promises her loyalty to him, he will not kill humanity and he will let Kate keep her child. Unfortunately, if she agrees to his terms, he will wipe out Henry, her mother, and the other gods. If she chooses wrongly, it will cost her everything. Listeners of Carter's first two books in the series (The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted) will be quickly pulled back into the story and thrown into a whole new adventure. Character portrayals by Brittany Pressley are superb, and listeners will be enchanted throughout. If the first two books are not in your library's audio collection, purchase them with this title because listeners new to the series will be looking for the first two. This title would be a good addition to any school or public library that already has the first two books in its collection.—Elizabeth L. Kenyon, Merrillville High School, IN --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From Booklist

The third Goddess Test title finds now-goddess Kate Winters married to Underworld king Henry, and they’re both held captive with exiled Titan king Cronus. This is thanks to ruthless Calliope, who is determined to take Kate’s new baby, along with Henrys and even Kate’s life. Meanwhile, Cronus’ plans to dominate both mortals and gods are rapidly progressing, with potentially devastating consequences. This take on Greek mythology again blends fantasy, romance, and suspense—and occasional gory conflict. While Kate’s contemporary, detailed narrative can sometimes be ponderous and melodramatic, series followers will appreciate her continued experiences and the fact that there’s some closure—although there’s definitely room for a follow-up. Grades 9-12. --Shelle Rosenfeld

Format: Paperback
Setting: 4/5

Establishing a setting is something I think Aimee Carter does rather well. It's never been difficult for me to clearly see where the story is taking place even down to the intricate details. That's not to say that Carter spells everything out for you. Enough detail is provided that your mind can't help but fill in the rest. I could picture all of the scenes and I think that was my favorite aspect of this particular book.

Characters: 2/5

This is ultimately the aspect of the novel that I had the most trouble with. In the previous novels our main character, Kate, does spend a decent amount of time sniveling in the corner, but I not once felt that she was unjustified. Her husband was cold and no one ever seemed to be on her side. That's rough for anyone. In this novel Kate suddenly became about as ridiculous as my least favorite female character that I have stumbled across thus far, Bella Swan. "Woe is me." She goes from sniveling in the corner to freaking out on everything and everyone. If that is what happens right after pregnancy I want no part of it. That's not all though. She also becomes a huge drama queen with daddy issues. Perhaps that ties in to too many story lines.

Henry didn't annoy me quite as much as he normally does. His love for Kate is starting to shine through he stone exterior. His dialogue was a completely different story. An issue I have had since The Goddess Test is the fact that Henry never uses contractions. . .ever. Therefore I have found a lot of his dialogue frustrating to say the least. I don't know if this was an attempt to make him sound like he has been around forever or if it was an attempt to make him sound proper, but it annoyed me to no end. Especially since none of the other Gods seemed to speak that way.

I think this book gave me three new wrinkles in my forehead. Seriously. On the one hand, Kate was a lot less whiny and oh-my-goodness-I-don't-think-Henry-loves-me-after-all than in the last book (which gave me serious Harry Potter #5 flashbacks), but can you say over the top martyr complex? It was unreal, and I just couldn't understand why she was doing half the things she did. She lied. She said horrible things about--and to--people. She turned on her former friends. She planned to spend eternity with a monster to "save" her husband, baby, and oh, yes, the world. Just about every decision she made called for her to sacrifice herself, and at least half of them also totally went against someone else's plans. (Not that she knew these plans, but still. She decided each and every time that she and only she knew what to do and gosh darn it, she was gonna do it no matter what!) She finally pulled things together at the end and made some moderately good choices, but it almost felt like too little, too late by that point.

Am I sorry I read it? No--after the cliffhanger at the end of #2, I had to finish the series. I did want to see how everything ended up. And it is a happy ending--mostly. Parts of the book (and series) still bother me--not the least of which is an eighteen-year-old who has already been forced into marriage (which I was actually mostly okay with--retelling of Persephone and all that, goodness knows way worse things happen in those Greek myths) being tricked into getting pregnant and giving birth while imprisoned all in order to further an evil villain's plans. She's eighteen.

Parts of this book were messy, parts were pretty darn convoluted, and a lot of it felt uneven.

I'm in love with this series. Persephone has always been a fascination of mine, along with Greek Mythology, so when I began to read this series I am sure that you can imagine that I was in a literature heaven. The best new take on Greek Mythology since I can remember, and I love it. This book just adds to the greatness of the series and I am sure that every one will feel the same way.

Format: Paperback
This book has it all! Love, war, heart-wrenching moments, and more! Possibly the best ending of a series I have read, though I wish it would go on. So nine months after being kidnapped and pregnant, the day has come for her child. Ava had a part in this, mostly because to protect her husband but Kate is still very mad at her. Cronus is there trying to get Kate to side with him and she will not be harmed along with her son. But agreeing to anything will leave Kate to be with just her son. All Kate wants is to take her kid and be with Henry and put Cronus back in his place. Soon after her son is born, she has this vision with Henry and the rest of the council. Soon it comes true, Henry has entered the island, ready to take them back. Things don't so go pretty though. While Henry fights Kate must find her son. Ava helps her to find her son and soon Kate starts to hate Ava slightly less. But you'll know why when you read this part of the book. Quickly everyone is there, Henry is in the room and notices the boy and is told that is his son. He can't do much right now, Calliope has him held tight along with a weapon that could hurt him. This was the only weapon that could actually harm a god, since nothing can do much damage to a god. Kate does everything she can to distract Calliope so Henry can have a chance to fight back. In the distraction Kate gets stabbed in the arm, that's all Henry needs to get free and fight back, only problem is Henry got stabbed in the chest. That's when things go south, Kate falls into a vision and has to be pulled out before she doesn't ever come back. She wakes up and finds herself in a room in Olympus. Her mom is there taking care of her and finds out Henry is in bad shape and they are doing everything they can.Read more ›
