Plot: 4.5/5
If I’d reread the first two books before diving into this one, that would be a 5/5.
Anyways, here we pick up several months after book two left off, for obvious reasons. And then we go straight into this whole thing with politics/war/crazy, and shit went down and some peoples lives got threatened, and there was this knife that could kill everybody, and, man, it was EPIC.

Characters: 5/5
Ava: I really want to start with /Ava. There was a lot of stuff revolving around Ava in this book. Kate hated Ava for most of it. I understand where Kate was coming from with those emotions. She had perfectly reasonable reasons. But, you know, I think is one of those characters who just grew on me. Like, in the first book, I wasn’t sure about her. and then in the second book, I really liked her. and then, in this book, OMG, Ava. My heart was cracking down the middle. It was so emotional.
Henry: I still love him. I always will. To the ends of the earth. (See, Ava? This is me supporting you! As long as we love, Ava will not be… something.)
Cronus and Calliope: Douche bag and bitch. Actually, these guys were great antagonists. Their method and their plan, it made things real, you know?
Notice I’m not really saying anything about Kate. I just don’t know what to say about her. She was strong in a floppy kind of way, if that makes sense, which of course it doesn’t. And OMG, communication. These people need to work on it.
I kind of wish James had had a bigger role in this book too.

Romance: 3/5
I don’t feel like anything NEW happened in the romance in this book.
I know what you’re thinking: “But, Monica, they had a kid.”
And indeed they did. And there was some drama involving Cronus. Maybe I’d fee differently if I’d read the first two book more recently, but I feel the argument they have are the same, and the elements of their love are the same. And, in that way, nothing new happened. But I still like the romance.

2 extra credit points because of this genius thing I realized Aimee Carter did in this series.
Renaming the Gods.
By renaming Aphrodite Ava, she made her more likable.
By renaming Zeus Walter, she made him less formidable.
By renaming Hermes James, she made more relatable.
And by renaming Hades Henry she made him more lovable. I just don’t think I’d be able to say “I love Hades!” with the same zest I can when I say “I love Henry!”

Overall grade: 14.5/15

One and a half stars--some of it was okay, but too much of it made me roll my eyes. Irritations started with the melodrama and existential angst, then devolved into the main character's motivations and even the setting descriptions.

(For the record, I gave up on page 106. When the main character began talking about the devastation to Athens and how there were no more skyscrapers, that was it. I couldn't take it anymore. Athens has some tall buildings, yes, but there was no mention of the hills around the city. The hills are far more attention-catching than the tall/commercial buildings. When my disgust grew to the point where I found myself questioning whether the author had even googled photos of Athens, I threw in the towel.)

The main emotional conflict is that the main character's newborn son is being held by the antagonist, Chronos. Chronos wants to take over/destroy the world, but that was supposed to feel secondary to the urgency the main character feels to get her son back.

The only problem with that was I didn't give two shakes about the baby. There was literally nothing about the baby, or the descriptions of the baby, or anything, that I cared about. The baby could have been made of cardboard for all I cared. I found it easier to care more about billions of faceless, abstract people than I did about one baby.

Beyond that, the melodrama was just too much. The main character blames herself for everything, then turns around and snaps at her BFF(s) for saying something similar. It's her fault Chronos escaped, it's her fault he wants to destroy the world, it's her fault he can't be defeated, etc. etc.

Woop-de-doo. Overall, I advise you to not bother with anything but the first book of the trilogy. That one, at least, was mostly enjoyable, but it was all downhill from there. ( )

Okay, so this romance grew on me, and I'm beginning to like Henry alot. I think it was just that he couldn't show emotion that slowed the pace down, you don't have to be vulnerable and show someone that you care- though with his track record, you could kinda understand why he would be.

I wouldn't mind seeing these folks again, just to see who replaces whom... mwah-hahahahahaha... ( )

Setting: 4/5

Establishing a setting is something I think Aimee Carter does rather well. It's never been difficult for me to clearly see where the story is taking place even down to the intricate details. That's not to say that Carter spells everything out for you. Enough detail is provided that your mind can't help but fill in the rest. I could picture all of the scenes and I think that was my favorite aspect of this particular book.

Characters: 2/5

This is ultimately the aspect of the novel that I had the most trouble with. In the previous novels our main character, Kate, does spend a decent amount of time sniveling in the corner, but I not once felt that she was unjustified. Her husband was cold and no one ever seemed to be on her side. That's rough for anyone. In this novel Kate suddenly became about as ridiculous as my least favorite female character that I have stumbled across thus far, Bella Swan. "Woe is me." She goes from sniveling in the corner to freaking out on everything and everyone. If that is what happens right after pregnancy I want no part of it. That's not all though. She also becomes a huge drama queen with daddy issues. Perhaps that ties in to too many story lines.

Henry didn't annoy me quite as much as he normally does. His love for Kate is starting to shine through he stone exterior. His dialogue was a completely different story. An issue I have had since The Goddess Test is the fact that Henry never uses contractions. . .ever. Therefore I have found a lot of his dialogue frustrating to say the least. I don't know if this was an attempt to make him sound like he has been around forever or if it was an attempt to make him sound proper, but it annoyed me to no end. Especially since none of the other Gods seemed to speak that way.

The incestuous things James continues to say despite knowing about certain things grossed me out hardcore. I don't care if you are a God incest is gross. Although, he did make me laugh more when I pictured him as Nolan from Revenge.

Plot: 3/5

I think the biggest issue I have with this final book is that there are so many different plots going on that just seem to flop instead of being actually resolved. There is a huge war that just kind of sizzles out because someone, *gasp*, dies. During the war there was a brief scene with all the other girls Henry had courted prior to Kate that could have evolved into something so amazing. They are recruited to help fight and instead of showing the reader the part they play they just storm the castle and are never heard from again. We also run into Kate's paternal crises. The Gods are also trying to do sneaky things within the war that seemed to just flop for me. If it wasn't one thing then it was another. I spent my time reading The Goddess Inheritance stressed out and angry.

Writing:3/5

As mentioned before I think Carter's strong spot is setting. She does a great job throughout the novel establishing setting. What needs work are complete ideas. There are some ideas throughout the book that have so much potential but fizzle out rather quickly. I would have enjoyed more build up with a clear resolution. I'm excited that the ending is left open for additional books. To be honest at this point I think James is the strongest character and if he were to narrate future stories I would read them.

I wasn’t expecting to cry as much as I did in this book. There were so many emotional things that happen. I also know that a lot of my reaction to some of the circumstances could be because I have children.

Kate drove me bonkers in this final book. I just don’t understand why she refuses to ask for help. I mean, of course, try to take care of things for yourself. But if you can’t, you’ve got a great group of people behind you one hundred percent. Henry is definitely my fave as usual. He’s such a strong character, and doesn’t take things lightly. He tries to figure out the best decisions to make in order to make sure nobody is hurt, especially Kate.
This novel boils down to family. They should be behind you one hundred percent. Trust is also a big issue. Who should Kate trust, and why isn’t she trusting this person. Why is this person being so cruel. It’s a big game of who do you believe. Everyone seems to have their own agenda.
The Goddess Inheritance is fast paced. There is always some part of a plot that is being revealed. This was a great finale to a great trilogy. It pulls on the heart strings, and forces you to take a stand. ( )
