Review: The Goddess Hunt
By Aimee Carter
Release Date: March 1, 2012
Series: Goddess Test
A 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....
This was a great lead way into the next chapter in Kate's life, it was like a side adventure and I loved it. Especially because it was about the Gemini Twins (me being a Gemini adored it). Castor and Pollux are in hiding, until James and Kate run into them in the woods in Greece. Of course being that Kate and James found them, Ava was following them and somehow Ella was too and her with her dogs went after Castor and Pollux. Turns out that Pollux is a god and his twin brother (from different parents but still twins) is mortal. When Castor died Pollux went to his father asking if they could share their immortality,which they could as long as one stayed in the underworld and the other with the living. One day Pollux got Castor out of the Underworld and they have been on the run ever since.
Kate being new to all of this didn't realize how much Pride these Gods and Goddesses have, all she saw was two brothers who loved each other so much they can't live with out each other. Being that her mother just passed away she knows what the feels like. So she fights for them, she fights against the Gods to let them be. It turns out good for them in the end but Kate has learned things she wasn't sure about. With James putting ideas in her mind that she doesn't have to do this, be with Henry and all.
Again I really loved this little side story and I can't wait to get into the next book. The characters are so interesting and seeing them as regular people but also knowing they are gods makes it even more interesting. I love mythology and it's fun to find out new little things, like not all stories are true (at least in the world of the goddess test). On to the next one ...
