Goddess Interrupted - Aimee Carter

Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2) Serie: Goddess Test #2
Release date: 2012



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 Gosh this book is such an emotional rollecoaster. I laughed and I cried and I was frustrated and relieved! I read this book in one breath and was up most of the night. I think the author did a really good job of taking some elements of the Greek Mythology and mixed it with new elements. It's a really good book! I really looked forward to the reunion of Kate and Henry, but it wasn't what I expected at all! Henry was kind of a ass in the most part of this book, he became distant and didn't confide in Kate. That was very frustrating! Because of that Kate is doubting herself and Henry's love for her. On top of that she has to find the first love of Henry and her only sister Persephone. I really felt for Kate and she was very strong. There was one particular scene that was so heartbreaking! It was a scene between Henry and Persephone, which Kate had to witness and I cried really hard! It was so sad. In Goddess Interrupted Kate grows into a independent, stubborn, selfless and strong person who is determined not to lose anyone else she loves. Henry was seductive and secretive as always, but sometimes really frustrating because he doesn't say what he feels! Then there is this whole thing with Persephone going on. You see him struggling and sometimes he took some stupid moves, that made me feel like slapping him in the face! But then again, he can be really sweet! Goddess interrupted is a really great book which leaves you hanging with a huge cliffhanger! The end is just so right and yet so frustrating because now I have to wait till 2013!
