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 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 succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.
The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter caught my interest on the very first page. The Goddess Test revolves girl named Kate who is trying to deal with the fact that her mother has terminal cancer and doesn't have very long left to live. Her mother wants to move back to her home town "Eden,Michigan" to live out her last days and Kate wants her mom to be happy, so they move to Eden. While there Kate has to juggle with her mother's illness, a new town, and new kids at school. When she gets invited to a party she thinks that maybe things may be turning around ...until everything goes horribly wrong. She finds herself thrown into a place where no one is who they seem and every decision she makes could be a test that has serious outcomes. This story is laced with Greek Mythology, Betrayal,Love, and Loss. This debut novel is most definitely a MUST READ!!! This is the first Greek mythology book I've read and I can't wait to read more!
