The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter

Finally, the Gods and Goddess I know and love. The proud, lying, cheating, crazy lot of them. They seemed a little too good in The Goddess Test, a little worse (in a good way) in Goddess Interrupted, and just perfect in The Goddess Legacy.

I love that I understand the characters just a little bit better. I was never strongly against any character’s actions, but to know their back-stories really gave me a greater understanding and appreciation for the other two books. Actions make better sense and the characters are even stronger. I really enjoyed looking into Calliope and Persephone’s stories. They made me like them, even though they ended up hurting so many people.

I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I was a little disappointed in Henry’s story. I loved the peek into his head, but something was missing for me that kept me from being over the moon in love with it. I do love Henry a little bit more now, though, and feel like I understand him a lot better than I did the first two books.

Overall, The Goddess Legacy was an excellent group of novellas that gave a necessary peek into the lives of the characters we love to love, or love to hate. It makes them feel a little bit more like complete people, and I feel like I’ll have a better understanding of the choices and actions in the third novel. If The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted left you wanting just a little bit more, this is definitely a great book to pick up.
