For millennia we’ve caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aimee Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows.
Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness….
Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal….
Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another….
James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others-but never knew true loss before….
Henry/Hades’s solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Goddess Legacy, especially since the ending to the previous book in the series, Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test #2) left me hungry for more. I love how Aimee Carter publishes these novellas between the actual books so that her readers are kept entertained.
The storytelling was magnificent, without saying any spoilers, I was able to discover so much more about the gods and goddesses of Olympus. I have never really liked Hera or Calliope but reading this made me almost feel sorry for her and wish that she would find some sort of happiness. All of the stories in this novella were great but it was hers that I especially loved reading.
Being the self-declared Greek mythology buff that I am I was intrigued to read this novella. In the first book Carter shocked me with how she portrayed the gods and goddesses but in this novella she goes behind the scenes and begins to explain to her readers why they are the way they are.
This is a trilling read from the very beginning, and by the time you are done you will feel as if the gods and goddesses of Olympus are a part of your family.
So four stars to The Goddess Legacy for a job well done. the only thing i didn’t like about this novella was the fact that A) it was a novella (I wish it had been longer) and B) after a while of reading it some (aka most) of the gods and goddesses started to get on my nerves.
So if you want to go deeper into the minds of the gods and goddesses of Olympus that Kate Winters knows, and if you want a very entertaining read, I highly suggest you grab yourself a copy of The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter.
