THE GODDESS INHERITANCE by Aimee Carter
About THE GODDESS INHERITANCE (taken from goodreads.com)
During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can’t stop her–until Cronus offers a deal.
In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he’ll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.
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.
Review of THE GODDESS INHERITANCE
Was I ever disappointed in this book. If you’d read my reviews for the first two books you’ll see how much I adored them. This book let me down. I’m actually really upset about it. The first two were great but this one had so much wrong.
First of all the whole book seemed rushed to me. As I was reading I was thinking slow down this is all going so fast. It starts off a whole nine months later when Kate is about to have her baby. That’s a huge jump but I understood that maybe the author wanted the baby to be born for most of it so I ignored that. As soon as she had her baby though things were rushed again! She escapes right away only to go right back. It was all just so confusing for me! I also hated that this book was the exact same as the second! She wants to sacrifice herself (once again) to save the others. That can get really repetitive really fast. I think most of my issues with this book were plot related. It just wasn’t good. It was full of action but really boring.
The characters seemed to get worse in this one too. I loved every single character in the first two but they kind of died. I thought Kate was a great heroine but in this one she was whiny and stupid. She refused to listen to anyone! Since she’s now married and has a akid she’s really full of herself and thinks she can fix everything. I was upset with how little of Henry there was and when he was there he was asleep or something. I love Henry and more of him would have made this book better. James was the same, thank god, as he was a favorite. I hated Walter. I don’t know what was going on with him but he was really stupid. Ava was also really annoying and instead of being a strong goddess she was weak and pathetic.
I was expecting a lot from this book and unfortunately I didn’t get it. I hate disappointing finales.
3 out of 5.
