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....

The Delight

I love books that mash mythology with modern and I’ve had my eye on the Goddess Test series for a while.  So, when this novella was available for free, I grabbed it up a few years back.  Yeah.. took my time, but I got to it eventually, right?


So, the events of this novella take place after the first book.  The heroine, Kate, is on a six-month holiday in Greece with James (aka Hermes) before she takes up her place next to Henry (aka Hades) on the god’s council.

They encounter Castor and Pollux and Kate finds herself squaring off against Walter (aka Zeus) and her own dear Henry to defend the twins’ right to be together.  But, it gets complicated and she sees a whole new darker side to the benevolent gods she thought were on the council.  They can make mistakes and they can get stubborn and prideful.

I enjoyed the further series development that was evident even to a newbie like me and I enjoyed the opportunity to get to know some of the main players.  It’s definitely got a YA feel to it, but I think its a series I might like so I’ll definitely be going back to the beginning.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
