  The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter

Review by: Jenny J.
Illinois, Grade 7

The plot of this book is about the five short stories of the love conflicts within the Greek gods and goddesses of greek mythology. The first short story was about Calliope also known as Hera fighting the troubles of Zeus and his unfaithfulness. The second short story was about Ava also known as Aphrodite deciding between two brothers who she should wed. The third short story is about James also known as Hermes. He has to face whether he should go after the woman he loves before it’s too late, or go to the woman who justs wants him. The fourth short story is about Persephone trying to decide to either stay the man she knows will love her forever or the man she has always wanted. The fifth and final short story is about Henry also known as Hades trying to open himself up to a someone who loves him and how he can get through showing his affections for her.

The Goddess Legacy had such a complex mix of drama, love, and going through real life experiences of love, doubt, and confusion.The Goddess Legacy is quite an interesting book and Aimee Carter was spectacular when it came down to detail and drama. If I had to choose who my favorite character from this book was, it would probably be Henry. I like Henry’s story because really is relatable to anyone who reads this book. Henry’s story went through the changes of opening up yourself to someone and I think that throughout middle and high school teens and young adults can relate to his story. The author did such a good job making this book seem credible and seem as if though the characters are real. If I could change one thing about this story it would be adding the love story of Eros and Psyche.

I would recommend this book to a person who enjoys plenty of drama, relatable experiences, romance, and Greek mythology for young adults.
