Mini Monday: The Goddess Inheritance (#3) by Aimee Carter

The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter
Book 3 in a trilogy
3/5 stars
My reviews for:  The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted

Basically...when mass destruction gets a little boring, you know you've lost interest.
I felt bad, really I did.  I wanted so badly to love this book, especially when I paid $9 for it...especially when I absolutely ADORED book 2 and really enjoyed book 1.

Thing is, this one was my least favorite.  The action was lacking, to say the least.  Kate and Henry were still good characters, but their romance was missing so much.  I really don't know what happened, when in the last book I was dying of giggles and squeals and "OMG GET TOGETHER"s over their romance.  Usually a baby in the mix can really do me in, particularly if I love the parents, but not this time.  The villains weren't big enough (not with all the incredible Greek mythology out there where the villains are FREAKING SCARY), and the heroes didn't have to do enough (I've seen minor characters in Percy Jackson do way more than these leads).  I was expecting more, based on the events at the end of Goddess Interrupted, but I didn't get it.

This book reminds me of...
Weak villains
Overestimation of greatness
Confused endings
Strong hearts (because Henry and Kate really stayed strong)
Sweet love
Family trouble

Summary -
(Spoilers for the first 2 books!)
Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.

During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.
In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.
With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.
Even if it costs her eternity.
