Here is the Goodreads synopsis
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 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.
Saying goodbye to a series is often bittersweet. I have a love/hate relationship with final books because as much as they break my heart, they also offer answers to questions that I’ve had since the beginning. The Goddess Inheritance wraps up Aimee Carter’s series with action, tense emotions, and romance.

Nothing ignites excitement for a book quite like a killer cliffhanger. Goddess Interrupted left off with exactly this. Those dying to find out what happens next will be thrilled to learn that the novel dives straight into the plot. The answers that the cliffhanger left us all desperately wanting are delivered quickly, and it was worth the wait.

These gods, goddesses, Titians, and everything in between are this huge, dysfunctional family. The theme of family, forgiveness, and love is such a strong one throughout the entire series. They, like many other families, may not have a perfect relationship but they do care for each other. They may hurt each other at times, but they are there for each other when it’s needed. These family bonds, that have been formed over many years, are something Kate is still getting used to. Aimee Carter flawlessly shows how Kate learns and grows within this environment.

The final battle with Cronus comes with tears, injury, and sadly some goodbyes. Death has a role not just in this novel, but the overall series. The idea of immortal life and what is truly means to have eons stretching before you is a daunting one. Aimee uses the newly immortal to contrast the ageless gods and show that living forever may have just as many pros as cons.

The ending of the novel can only be described as bittersweet. The survivors, while mourning their losses, are taking hopeful steps towards more fulfilling relationships. Getting to see how these characters have grown, especially when factoring in The Goddess Legacy is the true testament of the series. The changes in not just the main characters of Henry and Kate, but all the characters is staggering.

A bittersweet ending to what is a profoundly character driven story. Thank you Aimee for letting us share Henry and Kate’s journey with them to it's wonderful conclusion.
