Sum It Up! For fans of the series, it is a must read conclusion.  

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 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.

I have greatly enjoyed all of the Goddess books. This is the final book in the series and it does not disappoint. While it may not be my favorite young adult series, I think Ms. Carter does a fantastic job of incorporating the mythology into her own story.

Readers will see some development in Kate's character and even more in a side character, Ava. Henry, however, spends a lot of time off stage or not able to be developed leaving our male hottie somewhat flat. Kate is intended to be a strong-willed and very mature teenager, but readers will likely get just a teenager vibe for most of the story. For me, the greatest characters in the story were the bad guys. Ava and Cronus are entertaining and perplexing as their characters evolve throughout the story.

The plot was entertaining and did not leave any loose ends at the end of the series. I think it could have been a bit more developed, but overall, I am not complaining about how things wrapped up. Carter throws some new revelations at readers that will annoy some and thrill others. Kate sure was thrilled about one in particular ;)

For fans of the series, it is a must read conclusion. For readers unfamiliar with the series, be sure to start at book one. You will definitely need to. This book is for sure a young adult, but it is an enjoyable one. I am interested in Carter's next project, PAWN The Blackcoat Rebellion.
