The Goddess Hunt by Aimee Carter is a novella to bridge the gap between books 1 and 2 in her Goddess Test series and picks up immediately after events of book 1 take place. As with Goddess Test the multiple POV and its something that works for this book. Although I think I would have preferred to see more from Pollux, Castor, and/or James instead of just Kate and Henry. Especially since we got a small taste for Pollux’s POV in the opening chapter. I think that having Pollux’s view on things would have really added to the storyline of this novella. 

This novella picks up almost immediately after The Goddess Test ends and deals with part of Kate’s time away from the Underworld. In truth, I feel like this novella could have been expanded out into a full book and I would have enjoyed it all the more. I liked seeing Kate in a new setting and it would have been nice to “see” a bit more of Greece than we actually got to see through her eyes. It also would have been nice to get a bit more detail for the story as I thought that events happened too quickly. I know it was a novella but everything just felt rushed I think I would have enjoyed this more if there had been more detail and history included on Castor and Pollux. Especially about their feud with Henry and Walter… Hades and Zeus, respectively. 

While I may have wished The Goddess Hunt  to be longer it did do its intended job and keep me interested and engaged in the series. It kept me invested in the characters and I am looking forward to seeing what happens in book 2. The Goddess Inheritance. All in all this is something that I would recommend if you read and enjoyed the Goddess Test and think that its worthwhile to read this story before continuing on to the next book.

      I’ve enjoyed the series so far. They aren’t super detailed but they are nice quick reads.

    Thanks for the review! I’ve read some mixed reviews about this one and can’t decide if I want to buy it or not. Maybe I’ll wait a while.
