Summary: 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.
Review: Goddess Interrupted, the second book in The Goddess Test series, is a must read for fans of the first book. Goddess Interrupted has the return of fantastic characters like Henry and Kate with that added part that makes this series so memorable. The mythology!
I loved The Goddess Test! So, I was quite a bit excited to read this one. Thankfully, I loved Goddess Interrupted, too! My only complainant about this one is the slow start. It took me awhile to get back into the book and into the character's minds again. Nothing too much, in my opinion, happened. Kate was quite angsty and getting adjusted in the Underworld . Other than that minor complainant I hardly have no more complaints! It was just that fantastic.
Kate, the main character, is as feisty as ever. There were a few moments when I really wanted to slap some sense into her but she surprised me quite a few times during the book. Kate is such a strong character but she most certainly has her vulnerable moments. What I like most about her is that Henry doesn't have to come around saving her all the time. She's capable of taking care of herself. Henry isn't even around for most of the book, which really made me sad.
Speaking of Henry, I love that guy! He, like Kate, was moody and full of angst but I still loved him. He and Kate definitely have their problems which makes their relationship very real.
Most of Goddess Interrupted take place in the Underworld. I loved how Carter described the Underworld. It was perfect. There isn't much new mythology in this one, but I loved seeing the things I loved from The Goddess Test come back.
That ENDING was so intense and it really blew me away. The ending of Goddess Interrupted almost makes up for the slow start in the beginning.
Goddess Interrupted is a fun, sometimes deep, read that is definitely worth picking up!
