Aimee Carter’s The Goddess series

Genre

Myth based fantasy fiction

Review

Honestly, Carter’s series was an interesting read for me. I love Greek myth and so it propelled me to finish up the series but it felt as if I was reading a series half-complete. It lacked the gumption of other Greek myth based novels that I have read; leaving me unsatisfied. However, perhaps this was the point? Greek myth is wildly unsatisfying because not all questions are answered, and time flows in a strange sporadic manner.

In actuality, this series is more ‘traditional’ to its original inspiration, and marks it quite differently to other adaptations in this genre.

It is a good, light read; and Carter notably blossoms in plot and writing in her sequels.

It carries so much potential as to what Carter could have developed, and secretly, I hope that she does!

Who is it for?

Anyone who is die-hard Greek myth fan – yes, it adds to your repertoire.

Read Again-ability?

Perhaps, but if Carter comes up with more books, I would 100% be reading them!
