  1. Wow What an amazing journey I am astounded Sensational Five great stories, heart wrenching, exciting, wincing and cheering, though I can t bring myself to feel too badly for any of the Greek gods, wellEr except for Hades Henry because they are psychos Aimee Carter is a very talented writer Carter is just too much and I can t wait for the next chapter of her writing career after the Goddess test series because Carter tells stories that captivates and bring old tales back to existence anew I never [...]

  3. This was a great addition to The Goddess Test series Back story on main characters is always a great thing, and this was no exception We are in the viewpoints of Hera, Aphrodite, Hermes and Hades It was refreshing to be able to understand the characters a lot To read how they think, and how they feel and what their actions mean, meant a lot to me I felt that I could understand them better Especially Henry s viewpoint He is such a quiet and mysterious character and to be able to experience what [...]

  5. At first, I wasn t too excited for the Goddess Legacy, but I saw that many people were getting it from NetGalley so I thought Why not and requested it After reading it, I can say with confidence that I did not regret one second of reading the Goddess Legacy It s only a collection of novellas, so I judged them all separately and all together, they made a fantastic collection of love stories that were all twined together into a wonderful romance novella that I really enjoyed reading.It begins with [...]

  6. This was wonderful I am so happy that Aimee Carter wrote this Whenever I read a great book that has compelling characters, I always want to know MORE, especially about the backstory and thought process of the main characters who are not the protagonist This book did just that It gave an inside look into the lives of Hera, Aphrodite, Persephone, Hermes, and Henry All of them were well written and helped to explain certain questions that I had lingering from the initial series I am even excited f [...]

  7. 4,5 actually I so had the intention to never give half stars but here I am I really loved this collection of short stories hello 2105 reading challenge because you get to know different caracters better This enriches the whole series from an level of quite nice to good and complex Aimee must have made a study from the original myths and Gods to be able to write these stories That I like about them is that they are intertwined with everything that has happened so far, they explain sooooo much I m [...]

  9. ARC from NetgalleyWell, first, this book is an anthology of stories told from the perspective of different gods goddesses from The Goddess Test series I gave my opinion on each one below and after that I will tell you about my reaction to the book as a whole.Hera Calliope Well, I will say, reading her anthology was quite enlightening You really get a grasp at how she became who she is and how determined she is to destroy the council.Sad thing is, I don t blame her I felt ALL of her pain, hate, r [...]

  10. The Goddess Legacy was a wonderful addition to The Goddess Test series I was thrilled that Aimee Carter decided to write these short stories I was really able to fall in love with all the amazing characters that Aimee Carter created.I love the characters that Aimee Carter chose to write about and place into this book What was so great was the fact that I was able to dive deep into the feelings and emotions of these characters I was able to understand and even sympathize with them Even better, I [...]

  11. This is my first time reviewing a series of short stories because I usually don t enjoy them I had hoped that The Goddess Legacy would be different but unfortunately I didn t particularly enjoy this series of stories.The first story follows Hera Calliope and how she came to marry Zeus and deal with his infidelity I did not like this story Hera to me was not a sympathetic character so I found it hard to feel bad for her and then the way she acted so vindictive toward others really bothered me Ind [...]

  12. I rarely read anthologies I tend to stay away from them because most of the time, I only know one of the authors that have written the stories and I m not interested in reading short stories or novellas from series I ve never read before However, reading an anthology like THE GODDESS LEGACY really appeals to me because it s only written by one author, and all the novellas in the book are from the same series of which I ve read all the books E GODDESS LEGACY was a good addition to THE GODDESS TES [...]

  13. Este libro es perfecto, porque la autora logro algo que pocas hacen Haciendo un recorrido por los siglos desde que los Dioses derrocaron a los Titanes y asumieron el completo control, la historia que esta compuesta por The Goddess Queen, The Lovestruck Goddess, Goddess of the Underworld, God of Thieves y God of Darkness nos permite seguir un orden de los sucesos que desencadenaron todo lo que pasa en la serie y a la vez nos permite ver la historia contada por los diferentes protagonistas como se [...]

  14. A lovely novella with the background stories on some of the Greek gods following the whole goddess test After reading it I did understand where certain characters came from and their background and even hatred towards one another.Maybe not nessesary but a nice read.

  15. This novel was flawless I don t know exactly what I was expecting before I started reading it, but in the end, I was positive that it was a perfect reading I already knew that the novel was going to show 5 stories of some of the characters But I was surprised to discover that they re not any kind of stories, but the ones that have a major influence in the characters and the plot s evolution and in the same time, the ones that initiate the story line of the whole series These 5 stories are presen [...]

  16. Review originally posted on my blog A Book ObsessionThe book as a whole I m a little bit torn about how I feel about The Goddess Legacy On one hand, I really enjoyed the deeper look into the other characters The purview is a little bit limited in the full length novels as Kate is the newcomer to the gods goddesses, and these stories let me see the pasts that influenced their current decisions On the other hand, that deeper look wasn t exactly a blessing, but of curse as all my ideals about them [...]

  17. Before I begin I am going to advise all potential readers to read The Goddess Test before The Goddess Legacy I appreciated Legacy so much because I was able to connect the characters actions and development to who they are in the later books The Goddess Legacy tells about the lives of five of the gods and goddesses in The Goddess Test before Kate Winters made her grand entrance.The first story is Hera s, or Calliope, as she is called in the other novels and later stories Hera takes us back to t [...]

  18. sybillinebooks.tumblrAs I ve mentioned in my previous posts I ve already bought The Goddess Legacy together with The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted Anyway, The Goddess Legacy consists of novellas which are told in the POV s of five different gods and goddessesageThe first story is told in Calliope Hera s POV It tells about her journey a long, long time ago I actually liked getting to know her It tells about how and why she is the way she is right now I think Zeus had a lot to do with regar [...]

  19. Rating 4.5 Oh gods Greed, lust, infidelity, injustice, inequality, cruelty, violence, grudges you would think the gods would be better behaved.But they are not I looooooooved The Goddess Legacy And I love it even than I would have loved it because now everything makes so much sense And now I understand the pain that Hades experienced before Kate.And honestly The only gods I don t totally dislike by the end of this book are Hades, sort of Hermes, and maybe a tiny bit Demeter.Everyone else Geez [...]

  20. Originally published at Winged Reviews.I am always hopeful perhaps naively so about the Goddess Test books, because I love mythology retellings However, the first two books were disappointing due to poor characterisation and predictable plots The latest offering, The Goddess Legacy, includes five short stories from the point of view of the other gods and goddesses and delves deeper into their histories and character While I was frustrated by of the same from Aim e Carter, some of the stories ma [...]

  21. I received this book via the publishers through NetGalley That in no way influenced my review.Never before have, I read a collection of novellas so beautifully intertwined The Goddess Legacy is a collection of five novellas centered on members of the Olympic council It is to serve as a prequel to the Goddess Test as well as the Goddess Interrupted Any book that makes you want to cry for someone who you have previously thought of as evil is a best seller The re telling of the Greek Gods stories f [...]

  22. Spoilers if you have not read The Goddess Hunt and Goddess Interrupted If you haven t read BOTH you will be reading spoilers Wow When I started reading this, I thought it was going to be a novella But this is 400 pages long and it is every bit or even engrossing than The Goddess Hunt and Goddess Interrupted It shows how things got to the point they are at now If you had questions, any questions, about how the Gods and Goddesses of Olympus had come to the point that they are now at the end of Go [...]

  23. I enjoyed the novellas in The Goddess Legacy I was able to get to know the characters a little bit by getting their backstories The first story was Hera Calliope, then Aphrodite Ava, then Persephone, then Hermes James, and lastly, Hades Henry Even though Hera s story explained her character well and she had legitimate reasons to be the way she was, I still can t stand her Her story was the worst to read for me because I knew nothing would change for her and she d spend her entire existence bein [...]

  24. Okay, so once again I will tell you guys that my heart melts with barest thoughts of Greek mythologies There s just something about it that pulls me in with so much force and you won t see me for days And with Carter s works, The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted, I m falling deeper in love with the mythology Instead of portraying Hades as a really bad dude, he s actually pretty decent, and I like this new twist on it And he s desperate for companionship, which he finds in Kate, and But the [...]

  25. This review contains spoilers for those who have not read The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted, while those who have read the previous books in the series have nothing to fear.A wonderful collection of novellas that together tell the story of the Greek immortals from their original defeat of the Titans to a few years after Kate s birth The stories begin with Hera, who doesn t want to be defined by her relationship with a man and wants to be recognised as a Queen in her own right Her betrayal [...]

  26. 4.5 starsThe Goddess Legacy is a collection of short novellas narrating the stories of 5 of the gods and goddesses in The Goddess Test series Hera Calliope , Aphrodite Ava , Persephone, Hermes James , and Hades Henry Each novella tells the background stories of theses characters, giving insight as to how everyone got to where they are in the series Each novella are interconnected and told in chronological order from when the original six came into power to Hades s search for a queen wife.I loved [...]

  27. THE GODDESS QUEEN I seem to hate Hera even at the end of this book then I did in the first two books, how could she be so bitter for such a long time All of her unhappiness she lives through she caused herself I am shocked that for such a long time she held feelings for Hades and nobody ever noticed How could she not notice that Zeus was using her, I think that he does love her, but he mostly sees her as a belonging that he can manipulate as he wishes I m sure that at the end of this book that [...]
