Waiting on Wednesday (33) - The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter

9:00 AM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: April 19, 2011

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now 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.

If she fails...
I absolutely can't wait for The Goddess Test! A pretty cover and a plot description that sounds so awesome... yes, please! I'm sensing that this novel will be the first in a new rise of YA novels with spins on Greek myths... something I'm not complaining about at all! I'll definitely be looking forward to reading Aimée Carter's take on Hades and the Underworld with her debut novel.
