It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would, to be completely honest I was half and half about reading this book when I first saw it, but I am glad that I picked it up and read it. I love Greek mythology and out of some of all the books that I’ve read I’d would say that this is one of the better ones. This book was different to other YA books that I read and I enjoyed reading something new.
I loved the character they were well rounded and enjoyable to read throughout the book. The story was captivating, and I found it easy to read. I was quite surprised by the tests, I thought that they would be more of a main feature in the story and more obvious throughout the book as well. I found myself wondering when the tests were going to start. But by the end I thought that the actual tests were quite clever in the way that they were laid out throughout the book and the concept of them as well.
I enjoyed the romance throughout the book it wasn’t instant nor was it that cheesy either it just seemed right for the story. And I can’t wait to see how it continues in the next book.
Overall I found 'The Goddess Test’ an interesting read and would recommend it to anyone who loves Greek mythology.
