Gr’s summary
Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it.  Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.

Henry's first wife, Persephone

The Way I See it
The cover is absolutely beautiful and this seemed like a great Olympian adaptation! Bingo Bango...Was I right, I’m typing this up with a cat that ate the canary smile;) I really enjoyed this book, Ms. Carter pulls you into her world and keeps you strapped in! I didn’t always agree with Kate, but I loved that her “moral” code was truly pure. There were times I found myself saying “Kate, wake up already!  Just Do It!  If you want it...Go.Get.It.,” and there were times I wanted to shake her, and times I wanted to hug her. I don’t have to agree with a characters actions to enjoy reading, but I do have to understand where they’re coming from. Kate might not have the most self confidence, but come on, she’s surrounded by God’s, and she’s just recently been made one herself. The fact that she contends and follows her heart, shows a lot of courage!  James and Ava made the story very enjoyable.  You gotta love the supporting cast, without them my heroine would have been all alone.  Also, Something I NEVER saw happening took place, and I was like...”What the bleep!” I wanted to hate Persephone, but I had to agree with James, every one deserves to be happy. (It doesn’t mean I have to like her either.)  I’m glad she does what she did.  We all know how selfish she is, but at the end of the day all she wants is Henry’s happiness.  Speaking of the end of the day, Holy brutal cliffhanger Hera!!  Jeez, so glad the next book comes out in a few days!  Y’all are going to want to pick it up right away!  I highly recommend this book.  It's a great great read! 

My Fav’s
He has his flaws, but he loves Kate, and wants her to be happy happy happy!  I can’t, and won’t fault him for that!  He seemed to hold back somewhat, but all and all, I could tell his feelings were genuine.  He has had to deal with being a shadow, and he has had loss in his time.  I truly hope he finds his H.E.A. 

 So Y’all know I like my girls to “kick a**!”  Well, Kate is comparable to a lamb, but she is in the midst of Gods that have ruled, and protected humanity since the dawn of time. That would be “intimidating” to say the least!  We have always seen the Gods be selfish, vindictive, and all around cruel. Kate stays true to herself, and is unwavering.  I love her for that.  She might not be a “bad a**,” but her moral compass, and will to do the right thing make her top-notch!  That is why I love her :) 

My Rating
4.0 Cronus, Golden Haired, Greece, Stolen Kisses, Snowing Filled Stars! This was a delightfully fun read! Go and grab your copy!


  1. glad you liked this one so much. I just finished the last book yesterday and it was great. I have to say that James is also a character I really like in this novel.. though I believe that Kate needed to be more kick butt than what the author wants us to believe she is.

    great review,

    1. I'm totally with you!! I'm really looking forward to the next book! Eeeeeeeep!!!

  2. The Goddess Test series has been on my TBR for a very long time now. It's so good that you enjoyed this one. I've heard the final book has a sad and happy ending. I can't wait to hear what you think! Awesome review, Ria! :)

    1. OmG!! My heart just skipped a beat!! I'm nervous, starting the book in the morning oh.boy. Fingers crossed...I hope its not what I think it is...*sigh* I'm usually a really good guesser, just ask Lindy! Isn't that right Lin?..

    2. Yes! It drives me crazy!!! Ria always guesses the endings and plot twists in the stories! She's never surprised by anything that happens! I would love for a book to catch her completely by surprise!!!!

  3. Wonderful review. This is one series that I haven't read any of but certainly would like to. I have the last book so I guess I should get reading the first two.
