Series Reading Order:
1. The Goddess Test
1.5 The Goddess Hunt
Synopsis: A vacation in Greece sounds like the perfect way for Kate Winters to spend her first sabbatical away from the Underworld…until she gets caught up in an immortal feud going back millennia. Castor and Pollux have been on the run from Zeus and Hades’ wrath for centuries, hiding from the gods who hunt them. The last person they trust is Kate, the new Queen of the Underworld. Nevertheless, she is determined to help their cause. But when it comes to dealing with immortals, Kate still has a lot to learn…. – via GoodReads
What I Liked: This is a novella intended to hold us over between The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted. It gives us a look at the future Queen of the Underworld. Kate is still a strong young woman with a sharp sense of right and wrong. Without knowing the entire back story Kate is able to discern that the gods are allowing their pride to blind them to the injustice they are inflicting upon Pollux and Castor. It was a nice quick read and Aimee Carter included a showdown between Walter and Kate.
What I Could Have Lived Without: James kind of got on my nerves in The Goddess Hunt. He was incessantly reminding Kate that she had a choice and she didn’t have to do what everyone thought she should. I mean it was great that Kate had someone interested in her best interest but James wants her so it’s not even close to unbiased.
Recommended For: Readers who have read the first book. It’s not necessary but it does add value to the book.
Avoid If: You have no interest in picking up either book in the series. It doesn’t stand alone well (which it wasn’t intended to)
