Book Review: Goddess Interrupted

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.

GODDESS INTERRUPTED is really a book filled with action yet it is also a time of learning and growing up.  Kate has won her place yet now she has to grow into it  emotionally.  There have been a lot of drastic changes in her life in the last year and she just isn't sure that she deserves the good things.  There are points in the book where there is a bit too much angst for my liking however before it really gets over the top Ms. Carter introduces other things into the story line.

GODDESS INTERRUPTED is the second book in the Goddess Test series however you won't need to ready the first book to be able to enjoy this one.  I feel that you might enjoy it more if read in series but it certainly isn't a requirement.  I do recommend this book to young adult readers. Adults might enjoy it (I know that I did) also as long as they don't mind the drama that comes with growing up.

I rate this book a 3.75.

***I did receive this book from NetGalley for a limited time in exchange for the review.  No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.
