Review: The Goddess Legacy by Aimée Carter

The Goddess Legacy is scandalous, daytime drama in book form. Seriously, someone please give this author an Emmy award. Wow, you’ve got drama, intrigue, deception, adultery, lust, murder and mystery. The list goes on. This is a mature YA read.
Aimée Carter takes an interesting twist with the Greek Mythology we have come to know. This book contains five novellas that prequel her current Goddess Test series. We start at the end of the War of the Titans when the Greek gods are taking their place as leaders. The novellas take us through time and show us the evolution of Hera, Aphrodite, Persephone, Hermes and Hades. 

Wow, Hades! I have a new love and respect for him. He is all sensitive, gentleman. Hera is vengeful and conniving and I can’t wait to see what she does next. She’s the one you love to hate. Aphrodite, well we all knew she was a slut being the Goddess of Love and all. Zeus should be in a chastity belt that shocks him with one of his own lightning bolts whenever Mr. Happy stands at attention. Hermes, oh Hermes you naughty boy. My gosh, I’m telling you, it’s like Days of Our Not So Young and Restless Gods. Now, I need to read the Goddess Test Series to pick up where the novellas left off. Must find out what happens with Hades' storyline.
