If you haven’t read the first book, Goddess Test, be aware that there are spoilers in the description and review. You can check out my review of Goddess Test here.

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.

This Blonde’s Review:
I have been eager to know where Aimee Carter was going to take this story from the start. At the same time I’m disappointed it’s over!

We’ve already fallen for Kate in the other books in this series, so with the way the last book ended I know I was impatient to find out what was going to happen to her. What will Kate have to do to protect her child?

I enjoyed watching Kate’s struggle to be accepted by the other Gods. They see her as the youngest, the one with the least experience and the least to offer. The fact that Cronus seems to care for her as much as a Titan can care for anyone leads to them also not trusting her. Kate will do what she has to in order to protect Henry and her child.

On top of that, she has so many other things she has to deal with. She’s dealing with knowing that Calliope wants to take her child and not knowing if the child will live. She doesn’t know if she can save her child and her husband. She finds out who her father is and has to deal with knowing he wasn’t there for her when he could have been. And she has to accept the betrayal of a dear friend. She has a lot of self pity in this book, but she still stands up and does what she can.

This book didn’t give us much information about the war, even though avoiding is was supposed to be a big factor in the book. Really, the book wasn’t about the war or the other Gods. This book was about Kate.

If you enjoyed the other books in this series I know you’ll want to read this one.
