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. --Goodreads
Kate returns from Greece, but Henry shows her no affection as they have a serious matter to attend to.  The King of the Titans has escaped and is after Kate.  But if Henry loses Kate, he may fade and he can’t afford that when there is such a mess in his kingdom.  Now that Kate and Henry are married, Kate thought it could have been different between them and that Henry would actually treat her as an equal, rather than just a burden.  When all of those that have the power to kill the Titan get kidnapped by the force they are trying to murder, Kate has to find a way to help them.  However the only people who know how to get to the gates, where the Titan took them, are Henry and Persephone, Henry’s ex-wife.  In Goddess Interrupted, things heat up quickly and in the Underworld, they never cool down. 

It’s unusual of me to like the sequel of a book more than I liked the first one, The Goddess Test.  However, this one was so much more awesome than the first one.

The cover is the only thing I had problems with, really.  I liked how they kept the same girl on the cover for the two first books, it looks like but I don’t like the model’s stance.  It looks awkward how she is looking behind her shoulder.  And it makes me laugh every time I think that the model is saying something like What are you doing?  How dare you interrupt me, a goddess?

Everything else was pure fantastic-ness.  I loved all the characters.  There weren’t much new characters this time around but you did get to meet Persephone.  In The Goddess Test, Henry still is attached to his ex-wife and it is clear that he has feelings for her.  After meeting her, I first wondered why Henry feels this way (but it is later explained in the book).  Persephone was comic relief at its best and even a bit of added drama.  I loved Carter’s characters and easily fell in love with them once more.

Carter goes, without a doubt, on my favorite authors’ list.  She just made this story come to life and I loved every minute I got to spend in this world. 

The plot never let me take a breath or slow down at all.  It was a fast-paced, wild ride through the Underworld.  I loved all the journeys in the book and would quickly re-experience them any day.  The ending just left me hanging.  I hate cliff-hangers, but when they are good ones, just like this one, I know I can imagine a million different ways how the next book is going to go.  It gives me time to love these books even more. 

Goddess Interrupted is an action-packed, fast-paced piece of work that won’t let you breathe until you have the third in the series in your hands.

  1. I really liked this one too, Gina! I thought it was a good change in direction, loved all the action, and enjoyed the growth on the parts of Kate, Ava, and Henry!

  2. I also really liked this one! And like you said, I don't normally like the 2nd book as much, or better, but I think her books are getting better and better, and the first one was so good! You can see my review here.
