Goddess Test, Book 1.5
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…
Review: I really liked the first novel and the short story we discover here is placed between the first and the second volume of the series. We had not had the opportunity to see Kate far from Henry and it was a pleasure to discover that here.
Kate is therefore with James on the way to Athens but they stop so she can be presented to Pollux and Castor, two persons on the run, trying to hide from the gods. But of course, as soon as they meet, Henry and Walter, who were looking for them for a long time will do anything to get them back. But Henry soon realizes that he must put his pride aside and help Kate in her quest.
This novella will permit for Kate to realize that the gods are also affected by errors and even if they do not like to admit it, Kate is determined to bring justice whatever happens and whoever it might be. It was a nice little story and I think it allows us to put into perspective all the things Kate thought about. I confess that I am now very curious to see what Aimee Carter holds for us for the second novel. Greece seems to be populated with good future intrigues.
