Where I got it: From NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review
For millennia we've caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aimée Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows.
Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness….
Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal….
Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another….
James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others#151;but never knew true loss before….
Henry/Hades's solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope…
I’ve really enjoyed The Goddess Test series thus far, and while I really missed Kate in this companion novel, it was interesting to find out more about the history and lives of the council, leading up to how they got to the events and circumstances surrounding The Goddess Test.
This book contains a short story focusing on each of the main characters from the council that we meet with Kate in the main series, and gives us plenty of background into their history, the history of the council, and their relationships to each other. In reading this, I found that characters I hate, I hate more, and characters I love, I love even more.
This was so fun to read, especially because it fills in some gaps and makes some hidden connections to the main trilogy. Fans of Greek mythology definitely must check this one out!
