The Goddess Test Series by Aimee Carter

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.

This book was quite easy to get into. Although a journey outside of my normal genres, I was completely fascinated!  Aimee has a great writing style & a wonderful world that she's created. I instantly fell in love w/ the characters and the premise for the story brought Mythology into modern times in a clean concise way. 

 A 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's 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....

Just a short Novella, but it was kinda cool to read about Kate's first summer away. So easy to jump into a novella like this when you are already in  love w/ the characters & the story! A nice bonus & a DEFINITE read for any Goddess Test fan!
Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it. Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans. As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future. Henry's first wife, Persephone.
LOVED IT! Plenty of action, drama, conspiracy & soooo much more! Another great chapter in the Goddess Test series, although, the way Aimee decided to end this one almost killed me....STILL may kill me.....I just finished it & I'm shocked & horrified!!!!!! 

 COMING JULY 31, 2012...
