The Goddess Legacy

Aimée Carter’s Goddess Tests novels now have a companion book in The Goddess Legacy. Inside she gives me five original novellas about her fabulous characters from the Goddess Tests novels. Meet Hera/Calliope, Ava/Aphrodite, Persephone, James/Hermes, Henry/Hades and see Kate Winters star of her Goddess Tests novels as a little girl too. She takes me deep inside her world building focusing on the original six over throwers of the Titans giving me documented myth and her own take on the legends, she goes beyond the stories of her series to the beginning giving me a glimpse of how it all came to be. It was such an engaging book that I read it in one sitting, she had me so engrossed in all her mini stories I couldn’t put it down and when I finished it all I wanted was to go back to the beginning and read them again while at the same time lusting for the one to come.
In the beginning they were six, the children of Cronus, King of the Titans, they were tired of being pawns in their father’s rule so they overthrew him and imprisoned. They became known as the Greek Gods, they were Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Hades, Demeter and Hestia. But their rule was not without dissension as they fought among themselves for supremacy often inflicting cruelties that rivaled the reign they overthrew. But there were also among them stand outs, real heroes and heroines who deserved our fealty, who fought through the darkness and gave us light. And after eons of being revered and feared by humans they were also dying and now are on a quest to discover why. Will they persevere or will they fade into nothingness like so many before them.
