Waiting on The Goddess Test

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event here @ Inkk, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: The Goddess Test

The Goddess Test

by Amiee Carter

Goodreads Summary 

Every girl who had taken the test has died.
Now it's Kate's turn.
It's always been just Kate and her mom - and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear that her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld - and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy - until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride and a goddess.
If she fails...

So Obviously THE GODDESS TEST has been out for a while, so I must have been living under a rock back then, and had no idea this was out. Book Three in the Goddess Test series recently came out last month ( Goddess Inheritance) I was so drawn to this plot because it reminded me sooo much of the movie Pans Labyrinth. 

Pans Labyrinth is About a girl who has a sick mother, and horrible soon to be step dad. She Meets a fawn and he tells her she is a princess and belongs to another life, but she must prove it by passing three test. If you haven't watching the movie  it's a must see! Yes, it's all in spanish but the subtitles are easy to follow. 

Anyways, the Goddess test reminds me so much of the movie, and I would love to check it out. I know this isn't a new book, so if you have read it let me know , what are your thoughts? What are you waiting on this week. 


  1. Awesome! I loooved this series!! And ooh, if you plan to go farther in the series, I recommend reading The Goddess Legacy too--pretty sure that was the title. It was book 2.5 and had a few short stories about the other gods and goddesses and gave you some insight to their actions! Totally worth reading!
