The Goddess Test

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Synopsis:his novel was spot on. With so many authors jumping on the ePub bandwagon I've seen quite a distressing number of poorly edited novels. Which, even with a killer plot line and characters, the mistakes ruin the flow and kick me out of the story. I had no such troubles with this novel. I was fully suspended in Kate and Henry's world and loved every minute of it!
It's always been just Kate and her mo
m—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.

My Thoughts:
AMAZING!!!! A MUST READ! I DEVOURED IT IN 24 HOURS! From a reader stand point this novel pulled me in from the first page. I was fully engrossed and chasing the plot as fast as my eyes could scan the pages. A wonderful change of pace from the typical teenage angst novel. No annoying love triangle to contend with. Just a spectacular love story with a back drop of the Greek gods and goddesses. I loved the trials and tribulations the main character Kate had to face. The characters were fully developed, believable and most of all lovable.

From an editing standpoint t

I can't wait for the sequel!

Dang, this is the second novel I've come across about Hades and Persephone (I'm assuming that's the story it's about?). I will definitely put it on my list!! Love the cover too!
