Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.

During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

The Review: You all know how much of a fan I am of this series. Both The Goddess Test & Goddess Interrupted I rated 5 stars because I thought they were fantastic but now, here I am rating the third and final book; The Goddess Inheritance, only  3 stars. What is going on? I honestly don’t know but I do know that I just didn’t enjoy it as much as the previous books….and here’s why. 

After the huge cliff-hanger in The Goddess Interrupted, nine months has passed and Kate is being held captive by Cronus – unbeknownst to Henry. Now here lies my first problem. I was excited to pick up right where The Goddess Interrupted ended, however as you can see, its set nine months after and Kate’s just about ready to have the baby. I didn’t enjoy this – I felt as though we missed out on keys parts of the story like Kate being held captive, Kate dealing with being pregnant etc. But instead the story jumped and we’re told what had happened. 

My next problem came with the storyline. For the first time ever, I felt it was predictable. I have never ever thought of this series that way before. It’s one of the things I loved the fact that it was so unpredictable and I honestly didn't think there was many exciting twist and turns and for a third book, I felt it was very slow paced. The characters don’t know how to stop the war so there was a lot of thinking on their part. I wanted action, I wanted excitement and I wanted something epic but, unfortunately The Goddess Inheritance didn’t live up to my expectations. I also wanted more from Kate and Henry – I didn’t want to see the relationship drama like they had to go through throughout the previous books but again, it plays a big role, but this time Cronus is a part of it. The whole Kate/Cronus, Henry/Calliope romance thing bored me. You knew which way it would go despite the all the drama and evilness that was happening. 

And my third problem lay with Kate. I’ve read a ton of reviews previously where people complained about Kate – that she’s whiney etc, which I never understood but again, for the first time ever, I seen it in her this time around. I felt she repeated herself a lot, she constantly questioned everything and it took a while for the Goddess in her to finally come out. Maybe it’s me, maybe I expect too much from final books because this isn’t the first time this happened too, so I am eager to see what everyone else thinks.

Despite my problems with this instalment, I’m still glad to see this series come to a close on such a high note. The ending saved this book for me, it ended perfectly and who knows, maybe one day I’ll try re-reading this series and hopefully change my mind about the last book. 

Thank you NetGalley and Harlequinn Teen for giving me the opportunity to review this book.

It was a shame this turned out be be quite predictable. I'm not a fan of messy romantic plants either, so I don't think this will work for me. I'm glad the ending wrapped it up well for you though. Great review!
