What is it like to be the daughter of the most beautiful woman in the world?

Hermione knows . . . her mother is Helen of Troy, the famed beauty of Greek myth. Helen is not only beautiful but also impulsive, and when she falls in love with charming Prince Paris, she runs off with him to Troy, abandoning her distraught daughter. Determined to reclaim their enchanting queen, the Greek army sails for Troy. Hermione stows away in one of the thousand ships in the fleet and witnesses the start of the legendary Trojan War.

     In the rough Greek encampment outside the walls of Troy, Hermiones life is far from that of a pampered princess. Meanwhile, her mother basks in luxury in the royal palace inside the city. Hermione desperately wishes for the gods and goddesses to intervene and end the brutal war—and to bring her love. Will she end up with the handsome archer Orestes, or the formidable Pyrrhus, leader of a tribe of fierce warriors? And will she ever forgive her mother for bringing such chaos to her life and the lives of so many others?

Synopsis:

From the acclaimed author of the Young Royals series comes a powerful story inspired by Greek mythology, told from the point of view of Hermione, whose mother is Helen of Troy. How does a plain girl live up to being the daughter of the woman whose face launched a thousand ships?

Synopsis:

Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it.

Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.

Henry's first wife, Persephone.

Aimee Carter brings on the drama in the second installment of the Goddess Test series, Goddess Interrupted. After Kate’s summer in Greece with James, she returns to Eden Manor only to discover that everyone has gone to the Underworld in preparation for her crowning as Queen. What is supposed to be six months of learning her role as Queen of the Underworld, morphs into a fight for everything Kate holds dear- her family, her position, and her relationship with Henry.

Goddess Interrupted has made me look at every single character in this series in a different way. So many secrets of their pasts are revealed that took me by surprise. I feel like I’ve been able to see them more in their god and goddess natures. Kate Winters will be the one to go against the grain. Already, she’s decided what kind of goddess she will try be and how she will handle her relationships.

In Goddess Test, Kate was an extreme worrier. She never tried to see past her worries for what could be positive outcomes. I still think this is true of Kate, but she’s trying to improve, trying to not let every misunderstanding bring her down. Her relationship with Henry is so strained because she worries about whether he loves her enough or if she’s a replacement for Persephone. I do sympathize with her because she tries so hard to believe that she’s made the right choices regarding taking the job and becoming Henry’s wife.

Kate doesn’t join in on the action because she’s new to her goddess body and powers. I wasn’t thrilled that while the council members went off to fight Cronus, King of the Titans, Kate stayed in the Underworld picking at her self-esteem. But, when she volunteers for a mission that will help their endeavors I perked up at the thought of seeing Kate physically contribute.

Carter closes Goddess Interrupted with the most saddening and explosive revelations. I can’t even fathom what will come of Kate and the other gods and goddesses in the next installment, Goddess Inheritance.
