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.
The Goddess Test was one of my favorite debuts of 2011. The sweetness of the story had me smiling in the end, and I wasn’t sure Aimee Carter could get me hooked on a sequel.
But hooked I was. This is one novel that throws second-book syndrome out the window. Goddess Interrupted was a powerful followup to Aimee Carter’s debut, The Goddess Test. With immortality on her side, Kate Winters is ready to be crowned queen of the Underworld. But when Henry starts becoming more and more distant, Kate isn’t sure she’s what he wants.
But a powerful force is brewing. Something strong enough to kill them all – immortal or not. And with every second that ticks by, their time is getting shorter and shorter, and they’re getting closer and closer to fading away.
In The Goddess Test, Kate was a strong girl, bent on reaching her goals once she had them set. In Goddess Interrupted, however, we see a weaker side to her. She starts breaking from the inside, and though I never shed a tear when reading, I actually found myself wiping away a few. Yes, I have to say, Goddess Interrupted was more than action and danger, there was an emotional side to it as well. And while many may say Aimee Carter literally twisted the whole Greek mythology thing, I don’t care. It doesn’t matter. She’s the writer, and her twist is what makes the book all the more unpredictable, and unputdownable.
I highly recommend Goddess Interrupted if you enjoyed The Goddess Test. Its a praiseworthy sequel with a killer cliffhanger ending that will most probably leave your mouth gaping. Yeah.
