The Goddess Hunt

The Goddess Hunt
by Aimee Carter

Kate Winters just became the wife of Henry, also known as Hades, King of the Underworld.  As part of the deal, she spends fall and winter with Henry, but spring and summer out in the mortal realm.

It being her first time out in the world, Kate as James (Hermes) to escort her and they head out to Greece.  But it's not all sipping drinks by the water and getting a tan.  James has taken a slight detour and Kate's relaxing summer has become something much more dangerous.

Initially going to just check up on his brothers, James leads Kate to Pollux and Caster (now Lux and Casey), fugitives in hiding from Zeus (Walter) and Kate's new hubby.  While the visit is supposed to be friendly, it becomes much more serious when the other gods discover where she is and who she is with.

Now Kate must fight Zeus's decree to do what's right, even if it means going against her new husband, as well.

Final thoughts: Reading this and The Goddess Legacy, as well as re-reading The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted, I now have a much better vibe about this story as a whole.  What I love best is really getting to know Henry in these.  With just the two novels on their own, Henry is hard to get to know, but Hunt and Legacy really let you get into his mind and make him much more sympathetic and helping the reader to understand why Kate loves him so much, with such little time.  I like this novella.  It's a super fast read, but adds so much depth.

Rating: 5/5
