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.

Reviews: The Goddess Test / Goddess Interrupted / The Goddess Legacy

It is quite easy to say that The Goddess Inheritance was at the top of my list for sequels / end of trilogies that I was looking forward to in 2013. For the last couple of years, The Goddess Test series has taken me on an incredible journey. Following Kate and Henry's journey has been an emotional roller-coaster, and as much as I was sad to reach the end, I had high hopes for these two.
 
If you remember, Goddess Interrupted ended on a crazy cliff-hanger. With The Goddess Inheritance picking up shortly after Goddess Interrupted's ending, readers are thrown immediately into the action.
 
Kate, over the course of this series, has grown into one incredibly strong character. And her strength shows in this final installment. I have never once really disliked Kate, but her often doubting of Henry and their relationship, especially in Goddess Interrupted, had put a strain on me really loving her character. A lot of that changes in this last installment. Kate, finally, has come into her own. And so has Henry, for that matter.
 
There was a lot to love about The Goddess Inheritance. However, I must admit that I was not sold on our bad guy. Sure, we know that Cronus has done plenty of bad in his time. But with The Goddess Inheritance, he never really felt bad, bad. I think, overall,  I probably pitied him more than anything.
 
Final Verdict:

The Goddess Inheritance was a really great read. Not as epic as I had hoped, but still amazingly good. It is really sad to see this series go, but I have extremely high hopes for Aimee Carter in the future.
