It's always been just Kate and her mom--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 that 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 suceeds, she'll become Henry's future bride and a goddess.


"I care," he said in a trembling voice. "I care so much that I do not know how to tell you without it seeming inconsequential compared to how I feel. Even if I am distant at times and seem as if I do not want to be with you, it is only because this scares me, too." ~Henry

The goddess test literally blew my mind, Love? Mystery? Muder? Action? oh my! This debut book by Aimee Carter has it all. Kate is a great Heroine, she is brave, and completely
selfless, always putting everyone else before her. I couldn't help, but wish I actually
knew Kate! Even when people were mean to her and brought her down she still risked her
life for them and treated them with kindness they may not have deserved. The romance in
this book is so compelling, I cant even begin to describe it.It was purely perfect,
the tension between Henry and Kate is amazing, you can normally tell weather the man of
the story loves or doesn't love the heroine. In this story i was completely clueless! One
moment it would seem Henry loves Kate..the next it seems he is still in love with his ex,
but thankfully in the end everything comes together and it all makes sense1 (yay!) This book
had a very good plot, and character build, I found my self easily just flowing threw
the pages, I couldn't stop myself! I started reading it one night and then ending up staying
till 4am the next morning when i finished it, but it was SO worth it. Aimee Carter is
a very talented writer, I look forward to all her future books (: Oh and BTW this
is AMAZING and definitely my new favorite book, after downloading it on Netgalley I have
already read it TWICE and Preordered my hard copy (:

Note: Goddes Interrupted (The Goddess Test #2) is scheduled to come out sometime in 2012
                           -that is WAY too long ):

Purchase The Goddess Test: Amazon . Amazon UK
