The Goddess Hunt by Aimee Carter

The Goddess Hunt by Aimee CarterA 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....

The Goddess Hunt is the novella between The Goddess Test (Book 1) and Goddess Interrupted (Book 2) in The Goddess Test series. I recommend reading it before you read Goddess Interrupted because it provides information that may be useful when reading the second book.

The Goddess Hunt is only around 70 pages, so I was able to read it pretty fast (in about an hour or so). Despite it’s length, it felt like I was reading a full length novel. Not because it was paced too slow, but because it does such a good job of telling a well rounded story. The Goddess Hunt starts of where The Goddess Test ended and ends around the time that Goddess Interrupted starts.

I really liked how the story was told. Since Kate is away from Henry while in Greece, we get to know more about her relationship with James. Aimee Carter also alternated the points of view between Kate and Henry. One of my favorite parts of this novella was that we got to see inside of Henry’s head. He’s always so guarded, so it was refreshing to know that he was able to feel some emotion.

The Goddess Hunt was really good. Immediately after finishing it, I went to grab Goddess Interrupted because I couldn’t wait to read it. Though it isn’t necessary, I recommend reading The Goddess Hunt before reading Goddess Interrupted, because it makes the story even more well rounded. If you have yet to read the first book in the series, The Goddess Test, then you should really go out and get it. Aimee Carter is a really amazing writer, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

You can expect my review of Goddess Interrupted to go up within the next few days.
