Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.

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.


Aimee Carter has created a masterpiece. The Greek Gods are incredible by right but when you have an author that can humanize them the way that she has then what you get is simply incredible.

This book was magnificent.  It had the humor, the danger, the bickering between every single God and Goddess.  It had relationship problems, love and oh did it have some raging hormones going on!  It just doesn't get much better!

Kate and Henry were phenomenal in this book.  They love each other and in comes through on every page. 

They now have a reason to fight in this war.  Kate has given birth to her son, Milo, only to have him taken from her by Calliope and Cronus.  They have to get him back no matter what because he is more important to them than anything else in the world.

Kate is a bit of a martyr in this book and she is willing to sacrifice herself over and over again to save her family, but what mother wouldn't?  She would have been better off to have talked about her plans with Henry.  If Henry had known what she had gotten herself into then things might have gone a bit differently.  Lives might have been saved.

Henry knows that Kate is planing to give herself over to Cronus to save her family but he know there is a better way.  He knows that while he might get Milo back there is no family without Kate and he will do everything in his power to save her and his son.

The other Gods and Goddesses have plenty of page time.  James is still there helping Kate every step of the way even when it gets him into trouble.  Diane, Walter and even Ava are also trying to help in any way they can.

The Goddess Inheritance is the final book in this series. 




I don't think its over!

Seriously after finishing this book I don't think we have seen the end of this gang.  There were several ways this story could continue on.  It could continue with Kate and Henry or maybe even have a few spin offs.  I mean come on James has to find his HEA and according to Kate he is supposed to do that within a short amount of time.  Ava's son Eros makes an appearance and I can see that story going somewhere.  So yeah I don't think that this lovely world will be ending anytime soon.  We just might have a longer wait than any of us had hopped for.
