A bargain with a mysterious stranger will change her destiny as Kate Winters agrees to take the Goddess Test. But every girl who has taken the test has died… Get swept up in the story about which Cassandra Clare says, “A fresh take on the Greek myths adds sparkle to this romantic fable.”
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 amazingly possible. If she succeeds, she’ll become Henry’s future bride, and a goddess. But what Kate doesn’t know is that no one has ever passed THE GODDESS TEST.

I found a couple of flaws in this book. The god of war didn’t want anything to do with war, though his possible reasoning is understandable. Some gods stayed out of the narrator’s way or did things that I didn’t think they would. But overall, this is a great story, and there are small details in the book that hint at some future parts, which help tie in everything.
I liked it but
I liked this, but the names bothered me. Sofia means wisdom, but is given to the goddess of the hearth. Hera was renamed Calliope, who is already a Muse. Irene is a Grace, but this Athena’s new name. The only one that I can approve of is Philip for Poseidon (lover of horses)
