Book 3 – The Goddess Inheritance
The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter is the last book in her Goddess Test series and this installment takes place nine months after Goddess Interrupted. Goddess Interrupted ended on a bit of a cliff hanger and so this final book gets right into the thick of things. The Goddess Inheritance is a true final book in a trilogy as everything that came before really comes to fruition in this book. There is no bitter let down or other WTF-ery going on here so readers won’t be left with that feeling of disappointment that sometimes comes when a book series ends.
As with the previous books this story is told from Kate’s POV and all the usual suspects make an appearance. Though some appear less than I would have liked there are good reasons for any disappearances. Events proceed quickly and before you know it you have reached the end of the book slightly breathless and a little battered from everything that happens. There are battles and other conflicts and no one makes it to the end of the book unaffected in some way.
While the climatic battle scene does come across as a little quick The Goddess Inheritance is about more then actual fighting and so I didn’t mind the lack of detail there. Though I do think this story could have been better if it had been more involved. Or maybe it was and I just missed some of those details as I did read this book when I was sick so there are some details that might be a little hazy. But the fact that I managed to read and retain most of this story is a really good sign as normally when I am sink my brain can’t hand reading. All in all I was pleased with how this series ended. I liked Carter’s mythology and easy writing style. I am not sure what she’s coming out with next but I’ll definitely be reading it.
