It’s definitely no secret that we here at Frolic are OBSESSED with Rachel Smythe’s incredible web comic Lore Olympus. We simply can’t wait for Saturday each week! But because there are a whole lot of days in between each episode, we’re here to help with a great YA fantasy series you should check out: The Goddess Test series by Aimeé Carter!
The Goddess Test follows teenager Kate. Her mother is dying, and her last wish is to move back to her childhood home. Once they reach the small Michigan town, Kate knows something is off. But when she meets Henry, a handsome stranger who claims to be Hades, God of the Underworld, her whole life flips upside down. She agrees to spend the winter with him, attempting to pass seven tests. If she succeeds, her mother will live and she will become Queen of the Underworld. If she fails, she’ll lose her mother forever.
Like Lore Olympus, this series is such an enthralling, unique Hades and Persephone retelling! You’ll fall in love with Kate and Henry right away, and stay with them through the rest of the series! If you’ve got a serious Lore Olympus hangover after last week’s AMAZING episode, why not pick up a copy of The Goddess Test? We promise you won’t regret it.
