Title: Goddess Interrupted
Series: The Goddess Test #2
Author: Aimee Carter
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
From the Publisher: 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.
Oh. My. Goddess.
This is without a doubt one of my favorite books so far this year (I know, I know – it’s still only January -but it was incredible!). It took me a bit to get into The Goddess Test when I read it last year, but by the end I adored it.
This book completely blows that one out of the water.
I lamented at a lack of character development in the first one – but this book oozed with so much of it that my heart ached. I physically ached while I was reading this book. My emotions ran the full spectrum while in this story – rage, love, sorrow, joy… it’s all there, written beautifully by Aimee Carter.
Carter has taken a well known world of mythology and re-imagined it in a way that remains true to the spirit of the myths while creating a new world that I personally love to visit.
The scenes between Henry and Kate are my favorite, even if they were the most painful to read sometimes. I see so much of my own personality in Kate – the way she thinks, particularly about love – that it’s impossible for me not to connect with her. I do, however, think Aimee Carter is cruel with the way she ended this book.
HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO ME AIMEE?
Talk about a cliffhanger ending! When I realized that was the final sentence of the book, I very nearly shouted in frustration – in public. I need to know what happens next. Aimee told me on Twitter the next book comes out in December, so I have to wait nearly a year to continue the story… but oh it will be worth every second of the wait.
A snippet that made me giggle:
I didn’t know how that ranked as far as romantic gestures went, but I was pretty sure it was at least as high as getting me a puppy.
