Chiara's Review: GODDESS INTERRUPTED

Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
Book 2 of the Goddess Test series

About 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.

Review:
The story starts with action showing us the sentence that the villainous Calliope is serving. Easily, she run away and make a plan to destroy our gods. Meanwhile, Kate comes back from her holiday in Greece during 6 months, missing Henry. She finds him out very changed. As if the old Henry she met had ever existed. Is she only important to him to reign the Underworld? Has he always been the cold and lonely person who she met?
But after they can solve their love problems, the gods have to face the rage of Calliope, who has invoked a dangerous and powerful ally, so much that he can kill the gods who had been inmortals until now.

The book is a real page-turner and gripping. Even we will see how the strongers gods go down and Kate is the only one who cares. To ubicate her family, Kate must contact with the person whom she hate for breaking her husband's heart. Persephone, her sister. She has been the centre of every thought in the mind of Henry during ages. There is one problem: Persephone left the inmortal life a long time ago and maybe she doesn't want to know anything about them.

Despite of Kate's suffering, she'll find out the feelings of the mysterious and silent Henry who had never cleared them before. With an elaborated and interesting plot, the author lead the way to an eagerly awaited third book, The Goddess Inheritance.

Among action's moments, there are also times for humor which reduces the nervous tension in the story, such as like this:

"You two--?" I said in a strangle voice.
James focused on the fire, and Ava shrugged. "I am the goddess of ---"
"Love and sex. Yeah, I got that". I frowned. "Is there anyone you haven't slept with?"
"Daddy and Henry", she said, and I supposed that was better than no one.

There are a possible love triangle among Kate, Henry and James, whom we'll discover some secrets which will help to Kate to decide between both. The variety of described feelings make us to see that even the gods are prone to them like the rest of mortals.

A wonderful trilogy from which we could enjoy the third and last part next October.

I read The Goddess Test and loved it, can't believe I haven't read this one yet. Glad to hear it was gripping and that you enjoyed it! And I didn't know this was going to be a trilogy, that's awesome! Thanks for the review.

I'm dying for reading the last part. I hope it won't be extended to 4 books like Fallen (innecesary).
