The Goddess Hunt (Goddess Test 1.5) by CarterPublished: March 1, 2012Publisher: Harlequin TeenPages: 92Received: purchasedA 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 short story was just what I needed. I've been craving the next installment of the Goddess Test series, yet haven't picked up the next in the series just yet.
It picks up right where The Goddess Test leaves off and you find Kate on her first adventure away from the Underworld and it is quite the adventure indeed. Kate and her best friend, James, are venturing through Greece when they stumble upon the Gemini Twins - Castor and Pollux. Kate still has a lot to learn about all of the gods and minor gods and this is her first step into this new world.
The Goddess Hunt is a quick read and the lovely part of this short story was that it gives us another glimpse into who Kate really is as a person. The challenge of helping Castor and Pollux with their problem shows that Kate is stronger than she looks. She stands up to Zeus and a few other council members in order to do what she feels is right. Luck may have been on her side this time, but can she keep her wits about her, deal fairly with the council and rule the Underworld along Henry's side? That's what we hope to find out in Goddess Interrupted.
