Review: Goddess Interrupted

Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2) Goddess Interrupted
Aimee Carter
Publisher: HarlequinTeen
Release Date: March 27, 2012

Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, 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.
I really liked The Goddess Test and was really excited to see where the story would take us in this book. While Goddess Interrupted wasn't as good as the first book, I still really enjoyed it. 

This book starts six months after the last book left off. A big part of what makes this series so great is the world. I love Greek mythology and Aimee Carter has taken a very unique twist on it. We get to see and learn a lot more about this world in Goddess Interrupted. 

There was a big emphasis on Kate and Henry's relationship. And not in the way you think. There was a lot of insecurity between the two--especially on Kate's part. She was constantly doubting Henry's feelings for her. And Henry had a lot of issues to work out before he could really get his feelings for Kate straight. I wish there hadn't been as much emphasis on this as it had. There were issues that needed addressing, but they could have gone quicker. 

This book was a lot more action packed. It was addicting and never boring. 

Even though Kate bothered me at times, I still liked her. She is loyal and tough. I wouldn't go as far to say that she was bad ass, but she was definitely fierce. 

I really enjoyed this book. Between the world and killer ending, I can't wait to return in the next book.
