Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.
During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.
In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.
With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.
Even if it costs her eternity. (Goodreads)
Kate is a character that I will never get tired of reading about. She has such a great head on her shoulders. While she does have a bit of a martyr complex, she does genuinely care about the people around her, especially her little family. She is willing to do anything to protect them. There were some times in the book when I was beginning to wonder if she was going to give up, but thankfully she pulled it back together and returned to the normal headstrong Kate that I know and love.
I have loved Henry every since I first started this series. The more I read of him, the more I love him. He grows from such a lonely man, to a loving, caring husband to Kate. Henry is definitely on the list of my favorite guys of all time.
We see quite a good bit of the secondary characters as well in this novel, though not really in the same aspect that we have seen them in the previous books. They all have a very serious demeanor that goes along with the feeling of impending doom that they face. It was really interesting seeing this different side of them.
The ending of the book was very bittersweet for me. Something major happens to one of my favorite characters. While I hate to see this happen, I believe it also set up a spot for another book in the series, or even a spin-off series. I, for one, would love to see either of those options happen. (Especially if we get to see more of Henry, he is beyond awesome.)
Overall, I love this series. If, by chance, you haven’t read this series yet, I definitely recommend that you do. It is so great, and definitely worth the read.
Thank you Harlequin Teen for allowing me to read and review this advance copy! My life is now complete.
