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.
Because the ending of Goddess Interupted, I had been dying to get my hands on this book. I needed to find out what would happen next to Kate, Henry and company. On thing is for sure, Goddess Inheritance is an amazing ending to his series, being packed with action and twists. This is one series that is sure full of emotions: love, betrayal, heartbreak, revenge and more. This book, like the entire series, won’t leave you bored. Aimée Carter gives us everything we could have asked for this final book, giving us the perfect ending.
I love the characters created by Aimée Carter. Kate is full of layers, and we get to see more of those in this book. She has new reasons to fight, a new person to fight for, and she comes out as a kick-ass heroine in Goddess Inheritance. She wants and needs to prove to those who doubt her how strong she can be. She’s ready to die for those she loves. That’s one of the reasons why I loved her in this. Their romance, and their love for each other really made me swoon. I adore those two together and also Henry. He shows us a different side of him too in this book, and he proves us once again why we root for those two together.
This book also shows us different sides of the characters we have already met and loved. I really wish we could get more from those secondary characters in the future. They seem like the kind of characters that would have interesting back-story that would be really worth reading. Of course, I can forget Chronus, the creepy and crazy villain who we can’t help but sympathize with once in a while. The way he sometimes acts toward Kate shows us a human side of him we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I liked him as a villain because he was more complex than simply being mean and cruel.
Aimée Carter created an amazing world with characters you can’t help but love. This is a series I have loved from the first book to the last, and I’m sad to see it end. I’m excited to see where Aimée Carter will take us next, with her future projects.
