Kate Winters has won immortality.

But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, she’ll have to fight for it.

Becoming immortal wasn’t supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she’s as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he’s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate’s coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.

Henry’s first wife, Persephone.

Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2)Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars









I may have wanted to punch Henry in the face a few times but Goddess Interrupted was undoubtedly an excellent sequel to The Goddess Test. I'm still thinking about it. So, this one picks up where The Goddess Test ends - Kate and James spend the summer travelling around Greece but summer's over now and it's time for Kate to head back to The Eden Manor for her coronation as Queen so she can rule the Underworld alongside Henry.

Although it'd be understandable if Kate was afraid/reluctant to head back to see Henry, she's not. In fact, she's quite excited to see him again. After all, she is in love with him. However, trouble awaits Kate and the rest of the Gods in the form of - you guessed it - Calliope.

First off, I quite enjoyed The Goddess Test but it wasn't the sort of book I was thinking about after I was done with it. Goddess Interrupted, however, was way better. The story just kicked up a notch in this one. After just a few pages in, I realized how involved I was with the characters. I loved the return of Ava, she really is quite lovely. We meet Persephone in this one and really, I'm so glad the Aimee Carter didn't make her out to be evil. I mean, she was supposed to be Kate's sister after all so I wanted them to get along. The story was fact-paced from start to finish and I didn't stop reading even to take a break. The thing that Calliope did to Kate at the end - although I kind of saw it coming earlier on, I was literally screaming in my head when the book ended the way it did. I need to read The Goddess Inheritance now!

The only thing that probably frustrated me was, unsurprisingly, Henry. I wanted to give him a kick in the butt and make him wake up because it seemed like he wanted to wallow in self-pity. A good guy wouldn't hurt someone the same way he was right? I was so mad at Kate throughout the novel for not being more assertive and sticking up for herself but I was glad that she in the end finally called Henry on his B.S. , although she forgave him too soon.

All I can say is that if you liked The Goddess Test, you will love this one because it is so much better! This is a fresh YA series away from vampires, werewolves and fairies and definitely worth checking out!
