Man, I’m all kinds of jazzed and excited to get be a part of the book blog tour for The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter. But, I’m also kind of sad at the same time, because it marks the end of such a wonderfully and kind of awesome trilogy. This is definitely a series that you might want to think about snapping up, if you’re a fan of Greek mythology that has a different narrative and interesting spins. I can’t wait to see what Aimee Carter comes up with next. Whatever it is, I know it’ll be definitely worth the wait and tons of exciting.

The Goddess Inheritance

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages: 304
Age Demographic: YA
Genre: Fantasy
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.

“What Makes the Goddess Series so Divine?”

For me what makes the Goddess series so memorable and divine, are some of the beautiful quotes and passages that make up the series as a whole. Aimee Carter’s writing is wonderfully fun, rich, entertaining, as well as gorgeous sometimes. There have been a few times where I’ve been inspired by some of those passages and I thought I’d share them with you today and see what you think.
“Keep trying until you have no more chances left.”

“Sometimes we misjudge what is possible and what is not.”

“Did you know,” he said, his breath warm on my cheek, “that that is the first time anyone has ever told me they loved me?” Startled, I did the only thing I could think of—I kissed him again. “You’d better get used to hearing it more often, because I plan on saying it to you an awful lot.”





“It hurts being the one who loves more”

“Being with Henry doesn’t mean you have to give up who you are. Henry doesn’t define you.”

“You never had to fight for me to begin with. I am yours and have been from the moment I saw you.”

In her he saw possibility. In her he saw the future. And when she was ready for it, he would be, too.”

“It takes loneliness in oneself to recognize it in another.”

“Love is the way I feel for you, the way you fill something inside me whenever you so much as walk into the same room. Sometimes love is quite, lingering in the background until you least expect it. But love it always there for you.”


“Sadness doesn’t equal weakness, sweetheart. If anything, it shows the love you have inside of you, and nothing stronger in this world exists.”

“Live this love now,” I whispered. “And never stop.”

“I don’t need to be ancient to be worth something.”

    I just love the story and characters, they make the story come to life and even more divine than the gods being written about.

  2. To me it's the character that I find very well developped and the fact that they are Gods and Goddesses! It's also the beautiful line and moments throught out the books!

    Henry is absolutely divine. Almost untouchable, but full of fire when he lets his guard down. And so protective. And passionate. And wonderful!

  4. CK

    I love how Aimee Carter sort of revamped a lot of the Greek gods and goddesses and explored their personalities in her own way. 🙂

  5. I love this series! Can't wait to read The Goddess Inheritance. I am dying to know what is going to happen with Henry and Kate.
    The most divine part of the series is the developments in Kate and Henry's relationship! Thank you for this tour and a chance at the giveaway!
