Isnt it beautiful? Did you see the butterf lies? Yes, I saw the butterf lies, said Calliope. And the deer. And every other pointless piece of your afterlife. A dark cloud passed over Ingrids face. Im sorry you think its stupid, but its my afterlife, and I like it this way.
Upsetting Ingrid would only make things worse, and at the rate this was going, it would be ages before Calliope got out of here. Youre right, she said tightly. Its only that I never spend any time in this realm, so the process is unfamiliar to me.
Ingrid relaxed and ran her fingers through the rabbits fur. Of course you dont spend time here, she said with a giggle that set Calliopes teeth on edge.
Youre a goddess. You cant die. Unlike me, she added, skipping across a few feet of meadow. But it wasnt as bad as I thought itd be. If that idiot of a girl knew a damn thing, shed have known that Calliope wasnt just any goddess.
She was one of the original six members of the council, before theyd had children and the council had expanded. Before her husband had decided fidelity was beneath him. Before theyd started handing out immortality like it was candy.
She was the daughter of Titans, and she wasnt merely a goddess. She was a queen. And no matter what the council and that bitch Kate had decided, she didnt deserve to be here. Good, said Calliope.
Death is a stupid thing to fear. Henry makes sure Im comfortable. He comes by every once in a while and spends the afternoon with me, said Ingrid, and she added with a catty grin, You never did tell me who won. Calliope opened her mouth to say that it wasnt a contest, but that wasnt true.
Every part of it had been a competition, and shed worked for the prize far more than the others. Shed wiped out her opponents masterfully. Even Kate would have died if Henry and Diana hadnt intervened.
First shed lost her husband, and when she thought shed found someone who could understand her plight and give her the love she so badly desired, that someone Henryhad never given her a chance. Because of it, shed lost everything. Her freedom, her dignity, every ounce of respect shed fought to gain through the millennia, but most of all, shed lost Henry. Theyd been together, two of the original six, since before the beginning of humanity. For eons shed watched him, shrouded in mystery and loneliness no one could break, at least until Persephone had come along.
And after what shed done to him If anyone deserved to be punished, it was Persephone. All Calliope had ever wanted was for Henry to be happy, and one day he would understand that the only way he would ever be was when they were finally together.
No matter how long it took, she would make him see. And in the end, Kate would pay for robbing them of precious time from their future. The words escaped into the recesses of her mind, but her anger and bitterness remained.
Kate, said Calliope, spitting out the name as if it were poisonous. Her names Kate. Shes Dianas daughter. Ingrids eyes widened. And Persephones sister?
Calliope nodded, and behind Ingrid, a strange fog formed in the distance. It seemed to beckon toward her, but she resisted the urge to cut loose from Ingrid and follow it. If she deliberately disobeyed the councils orders, she would be permanently banished and her spot on the council filled by someone else. She knew exactly who that someone else would be, and she swore to herself that as long as she was still a goddess, Kate would never get anywhere near her throne.
Calliope eyed the fog. Have you ever been through there? Through where? The trees? Sometimes, but I prefer the meadow. Did you know the f lower petals taste like candy? You should try them. I dont eat candy, said Calliope, still distracted by the fog. She hadnt seen anything else like it while in the Underworld, and it must mean something.
Maybe it was Henrys way of telling her she could move on to the next girl. Perhaps he understood how awful Ingrid was after all.
How can you not eat candy? Everyone eats candy. Im not everyone, said Calliope. Stay here. So you can walk away? I dont think so. You need me to forgive you before you leave, or have you forgotten already? Calliope gritted her teeth. Of course she hadnt forgotten, but as far as she was concerned, Ingrid was never going to forgive her.
Even if she did, Calliope doubted every girl shed killed would, as per Kates ruling, which meant she would likely be stuck in the Underworld for eternity. That was longer than Calliope was prepared to wait. Unless you want me to attach your feet to the ground, you will stay, she snapped. You can do that? Instead she headed toward the fog and away from Ingrid, who at least had the decency not to follow her. The farther from Ingrid she got, the dimmer the meadow became, until Calliope was surrounded by rockthe real face of the Underworld now that there wasnt a dead soul around to inf luence its appearance.
Now that she was closer, she could see that the fog wasnt really fog after all. Instead it seemed to shimmer in the air, a thousand tendrils of light reaching for her.
Calliope reached back, and the moment her fingers touched the strange glow, she understood why it had called to her. At last, after decades of waiting, he was awake.
Calliope smiled, and a rush of power so ancient it didnt have a name spread through her. With Ingrid nothing more than a distant memory, she stepped forward, and the anger shed harbored for so long finally found its purpose. Hello, Father. Each year I sat and listened as my classmates in my New York City preparatory school talked about how theyd spent the summers in the Hamptons or in Florida or in Europe with their rich parents, or au pairs, or as we grew older, boyfriends and girlfriends.
By the time we reached high school, I heard the same glitzy stories over and over again: escapades in Paris with supermodels, all-night parties on the beaches in the Bahamas with rock starsevery student vied for attention with exploits that got wilder every year. But my story was always the same. My mother worked as a f lorist, and because most of her income went to paying for that school, we never left New York City. On her days off we spent our afternoons in Central Park soaking up the sun.
It wasnt the Hamptons. It wasnt Florida. It wasnt Europe. But they were my summers. Let me say it again. I couldn't freaking believe my eyes when I read that. Now let's talk about Hades. My beloved Hades. I was hoping for something like this- Instead I got this According to Aimee Carter's mythology, Hades was a whiny, emo virgin. Hades, one of the Big Three, the badass Lord of the Underworld, was an angsty virgin.
Say whaaat? He has been alive for eons and he's never had sex? Not even with Persephone? Thanks for making Hades a unicorn.

Instead I got some emo god with no incest, no monsters or three headed Cerberus. I can forgive errors if the material is good over all. However, this piece completely bastardizes the source material by turning into a cheap romance, that lacks any [Warning: However, this piece completely bastardizes the source material by turning into a cheap romance, that lacks any emotional complexity or sense of excitement.
Kate is frustrating and I should feel for her easily. Loosing my mother is one of my deepest, darkest fears; so why can't I manage any sympathy for her? Oh, that's right: I mean she gets the deal of a lifetime handed to her on a silver platter and she just keeps complaining: I'm a progressive woman!
Not to mention this story all revolves around me supposing to believe that she will give up her freedom to save someone who she doesn't even care for. I can't believe that.
Nothing in her character makes me think she has that kind of moral code. Hades, oh my poor, poor Hades. I would have honestly preferred if they went the Disney root and made him the villain. Say what you will about Disney's Hercules, but Hades [despite being grossly misrepresented] is one of the highlights of the film. The deity in this book is a boring, sexually repressed virgin of all things! There is nothing wrong with being a virgin, we all are once, but for Zeus's sake, you are an immortal and you haven't tapped one ass?!?
I mean, have you met Zeus? I'll plow anything with a hole, no matter rain, sleet, goose or bull. For him to say "we don't abide lust" is the biggest crock in the world and only shows the further bastardzation of the biggest man-whore in mythic history.
Also how they were all presented were just stupid: Now the ending: What a gigantic-ass cop out. I don't want to "spoil" anything for you, but if I was Kate I would have told all the gods to go have one gigantic wank and flip them off. I know some of my friends here do not like the Percy Jackson series, but that children's book series has more emotional depth, accuracy, better character and handles the dark side of the mythos in a mature way.

They are not even in the Bible. Why would gods, who do whatever the fuck they want, follow them, or implore anyone else to follow them? Gods did not care about humans. Hell, they would kill off their own bastard half-mortal children if they were making too much of a fuss. I probably don't need to say this at this point, but I did not like the way Greek Mythology was handled in this book. The traditional myths were undermined and pussified. I was really excited when I first received a galley of this book, as I love it when an author takes old mythology and twists it in a new way.
Carter managed to take every interesting about the Greek myths -the lust, violence, cruelty, and romance- and stomp on it, turning it into melodrama soup. Vindictively, I might imagine. There was really no trace of the old mythology besides the fact that Henry was supposedly Hades, and Kate was his new Persephone she crapped on that myth too, by the way. What kind of name is Henry for a god anyway?
It's a name for 19th century carriage boys. And don't get me started on the name Walter. She gave, Zeus, the King of the Gods, the name Walter.
Just uuuuggggggghhhhh. And the book was boring too. Kate did nothing. Nothing happened to her. She sat around, was fed and clothed by servants, and flirted with an attractive man.
That was it.
The tests that supposedly verify her worth as an immortal being were a joke. But instead the tests happen very boringly without the reader's knowledge. So apparently, if you give away clothes you didn't even want in the first place, you are goddess material.
Hey, I gave my favorite pen to Amanda Lukevitch last week, does this qualify me for immortal life? Come on, at least make me a nymph or something!! Kate's best character trait not that she has many, the boring lump that she is is that she is selfless, willing to sacrifice her life for others. And the romance between Emo McWhiney and Kate was as dull as the tines of a spork. No spark or anything. Not the slightest bit of tension. This could be because all of the characters were as flat and dry as cardboard.
And I just love how Kate wasn't tested on things like intelligence, judgement, or leadership ability She's chaste, isn't that all what matters? View all 72 comments. Mar 01, Cory added it.

May 17, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it did not like it Shelves: This was a truly terrible book, but I feel so bad giving it such a low rating. It's like I just kicked a puppy. A really stupid puppy that's wet my bed for the 47th time, but still I've read a lot of unrealistic heroines in my day, but Kate tops the list.
She's not all that terrible: I'll give her some points. She is kind, caring, with a soft spot bigger and more tender than a newborn's head. The first sentence of the story gives us a preview of her character: No father, and her mother has been terminally ill from cancer for the last four years. She's known suffering, and she is kind, compassionate, and caring; she will forgive just about anything. Kate is endlessly supportive, endlessly optimistic, even while she's scared that she'll fail and let everyone down.
She just doesn't give up. If I wanted to read about saints, I'd go read the Bible.
Enough with the martyrdom already. The key to writing a good character is for them to have flaws. Believable flaws. Kate's flaws aren't so much flaws as they are embellishments of her oh-so-perfect personality. Even her flaws are good ones. It's like going to a job interview. When the interviewer asks "What is your biggest weakness?
That sums up my feelings about Kate. She's just too perfect to be a good, believable character. Her friendship with Ava I didn't feel like Ava added anything to the story besides making Kate look good in comparison. Ava's existence seems to serve the purpose of highlighting Kate's good nature and willingness to forgive.
So in the beginning, Ava fakes friendship, only to abandon Kate with no choice but to cross a river, knowing full well she is afraid of water. Despite the cruel trick, Kate becomes her best friend anyway, no matter what kind of idiocy Ava gets herself into. There is very thinly veiled slut-shaming here.
Kate assumes fault for everything. Someone dies? It's her fault. She saves someone's life, only to have them die again? Her fault. Because of me. That phrase is repeated by Kate throughout the book and I became sick of it. You're not a serial killer, Kate.
Nobody died because of you. Stop assuming fault for everything bad that happens! Even if something is clearly not her fault, it's still her fault because she trusted the wrong person Regardless, she is so sympathetic, which is why I feel like I'm kicking a helpless animal every time I criticize her character. I mean, how can you not feel for her after reading this: It sucks to know that you're a replacement.
The other female characters in the book seems also to serve the purpose of highlighting Kate's godliness. They fight. Screeching, yelling at each other, everything short of hair-pulling.
I am so sick of the trend that only one single female character can be truly good, and all other females in the story serve as bitchy foils, be they friends of the main character or not. Henry himself didn't register on my radar much. He spends the majority of his time moping about and being depressed, despondent, and feeling hopeless.
I can't imagine he's any use as a god, he doesn't seem capable of anything besides pouting and sulking. The plot itself is absurd. The land of the dead, in Michigan. Random residents of town are inhabitants of Henry's little kingdom. The pantheon of gods, which includes Zeus, Apollo, etc Somehow, my copy of Bullfinch's Mythology made the glaring error of omitting Henry from its list of inhabitants of Zeus' marbled halls. This is one instance when things would have gone better unexplained What I thought was the major plotline, the tests, were weakly glossed over.
They seemed to be put together in a rush when the author realized she completely forgot the major plotline, and I didn't find the result any more credible than the rest of the book and its characters.

Now, I have been in the midst of a passionate love affair with Greek mythology since the 2nd grade.
I am perpetually in the throes of a burning passion, you may say. I love it all - it's like a soap opera times Greek mythology contains some of the most entertaining and delightfully sinful stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading, telling, reenacting Anyway, did 2.
Anyway, did you hear that, Ms. Sinful was the key word, there. And here leads to what I didn't like about this book. Literally, if you catch my drift. Sorry, children. Look, I understand - and appreciate - artistic license. You can bend your material a bit. But when you have ZEUS - the king haha, pun!
You know you've done something wrong. You made a wrong turn somewhere, Ms. Let us ponder. I think I know. But do you realize that Greek mythology came about before Jesus was even a twinkle in the great God's eye?
The Goddess Inheritance - Aimee Carter
Zeus was fucking his sister in peace thousands of years before that, Ms. Shall I draw you a time line? I think I shall! Kronos ate his kids. Zeus married his sister, killed his father with the help of his brothers Word of the Day: Jesus came out of Mary's magnificently holy vagina.
Was that skillfully crude time line enlightening? I really hope so. Wanna know why?
Because I actually have some hopes for this trilogy. And here is where I talk about what I actually kinda liked about this book and why I gave it almost three stars. It felt real and Kate's motivations and feelings behind it were probably her most redeemable and interesting qualities. The relationship between Kate and her mother was probably the strongest in the book. That's just depressing.
Especially 'cause he's Hades, and I've always had a soft spot for him. However, his character portrayal was The occasional fits of rage were good, because that's fitting for any Greek god, really, but now I feel I must touch on the most ridiculous thing this entire book managed to spout out: A virgin , I tell you.
I'm really tired of these immortal and supposedly drop-dead sexy and yet another pun men in these YA books who never manage to get laid. Oh, I know! Maybe he's saving it for the Lord.
You got me there, Ms. Carter, I'll admit it. It was a fairly decent twist. Kate held my attention well enough. I don't hate her.
I don't love her, but I don't hate her. She's kind of on the fence for me right now. We'll see how the second book goes. And so, if Ms.

Carter can pull her shit together and stop talking down to us good readers, and cut it out with that Seven Sins bullshit, and let Henry fuck I will enjoy the second book. I really will, Ms. Overall, you had a good idea. So please, please, grant my wishes and don't let me down like most books I read nowadays.
PS - I feel I should add this in: Look at that cover. That is one beautiful cover. I am a binding whore, admittedly. I know that that sounds wrong, don't feel the need to point out the poor word choice as an attempt to save me from future word vomit.

Ok, enough with the music and happiness. We're getting serious. As in- "when I was a 10 year old, I liked every single book there was out there!! Just warning ya, folks. However, her only hopes are to save her mother.
So, obviously, in this action packed book, Carter makes this a life or death scenario. I mean, what did you expect?? Unicorns and rainbows?? A f-ing hot dude who gets a girl to take a test and marry him Should you read it??
Totally your choice. View all 6 comments. Feb 26, Steph Su rated it did not like it Shelves: Um…did I read a different book than many others? After reading rave reviews all over Goodreads and the Internet, I was expecting something swooningly romantic and highly inventive.
The first quarter of the book consists of a really confusing series of exchanges that go something like this: She dies. Now I must go and save again the life of this girl who treats me like shit. They are tropes. Kate is a total Bella Swan, the new girl whom guys are falling over to accommodate for no good reason.
And Ava. Oh God, Ava. So unnatural. View all 9 comments. Jun 21, Savina M. It's official. Aimee Carter is now on my list of Authors who are fucking idiots didn't do enough research, right next to the Casts and dear Alexandra Adornetto.
How can someone fuck up Greek Mythology that bad? Even my twelve-year-old cousin, whose only knowledge of Greek Mythology is from The Lightning Thief , knows that there are twelve Olympians, not thirteen, and mortals can't dole out punishments to gods. Okay, I've calmed down a little. Now on to the rest of the review.
The Goddess Legacy (Goddess Test #2.5) by Aimee Carter
Summary Kath It's official. Summary Katherine "Kate" Winters, is your ordinary goody-two-shoes Mary Sue, who wants nothing but for her mother to live the remainder of her days happy.
Annnnd out of the blue, Henry He's Hades, by the way. A fucking stupid name invites Kate to his manor to be his new bride. It's way more romantic than how I just explained it. Trust me. But his eyes drew my attention.
Even in the darkness, they shone brightly, and I had a hard time tearing myself away from his gaze. But it's not so simple. Henry is about to fade away, and unless he can find a new Persephone, his realm in the Underworld will be passed on to Hermes. For some fucking reason. To determine whether Kate is suited for Henry or not, the fucking coucil has Kate go through several tests.
They're not just any tests. Yes, testing whether Kate sins or not. Not the twelve labors. Not going on some heroic quest. You wanna know what the test for greed is? Kate's offered a pile of dresses, and since she offered to share it with someone else, she's not greedy. Kate gets to spend time with her mom, slut-shames Aphrodite, has sex with Henry And they fucking celebrate Christmas.
The fucking mythology Since this is the 1 thing that irked me, I will address this first. Look at this stupid list. Let's start off with this list. Zeus doesn't appear much in this book, and the only thing wrong is his name, so let's move on to Hera. From Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, Calliope was the muse of epic poetry, daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and is believed to be Homer's muse for the Iliad and the Odyssey.
You hear that, Aimee? Calliope is a fucking muse. Why the fuck would Hera go ahead and name herself after a muse? God, at least bother to search up a fucking name next time you write a book. And get this. Hera is in love with Hades. Hera, the goddess of family, so in love with Hades she almost killed Kate for it. Next on the list Doesn't appear in this book much.
Moving on. She's actually Kate's mom in this book. Very motherly, very nice, yap yap yap. But wait. What's the name on the right of Demeter's? Wiki again: In Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power to talk to and control animals. She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis, [ So pray tell, why the fuck would Demeter use Artemis' name?
I remember Kate asking about it I just Aphrodite: The goddess of lust and beauty. Need I say more? Hades: Ah, the big one. Hades was the god of the Underworld. He tricked and kidnapped Persephone his niece!
He was charged with maintaining the balance, which meant he was not about to randomly grant dead people their lives back. No, he was not in the business of patching up broken skulls and sending dead souls back into the living world.
He was as sexually active as the rest of his family, pursuing nymphs left, right and centre. Are you noticing the common thread here? Accountability is a human notion; gods are above it. In the event that said gods wanted to make humans prove that they were worthy of being immortal, they sent them on a quest. Not moral fibre.
Is that the best you can do? Try not to mix your religions, it always ends badly.
You might also want to keep in mind that gods are not sweeter, kinder versions of humanity. They have no humanity. Not looked at wistfully and tenderly.He could break her grip if she lowered the knife. Home sweet home, I said as I drove through the gate. Ava trailed after us, dragging her feet and scattering the pebbles as if she were trying to make as much noise as possible.
Gods did not care about humans. Mar 01, Cory added it. I love Greek mythology and how Rick Riordan put a new twist on it in his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series but still managed to stay true to Greek mythology.
Forget me. She wouldn't eat or drink. The plot itself is absurd.
