Goddess Interrupted - Book 2 (Some spoilers)

August 13, 2016

Hi lovelies,

So if you read my last review "The Goddess Test - Book One" written by Amiée Carter. You would know that there are four books in total. This is a review of Goddess Interrupted - Book 2. I advise you not to read if you haven't read book one as this could contain some spoilers.

The synopsis: 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 isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler on 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.

My thoughts: Ok so first of all this book is so much better than the first one, I couldn't put it down from start to finish and I'm a sucker for a mythical love story.  I love a few of the new characters that were brought into this book as well. Although, as much as I enjoyed it I couldn't help but internally scream all the way through.

Kate has just come back from holiday with her best friend and wants nothing more to be loved by Henry (Hades) but does he do that? No! He's really distant and different compared to the end of the last book. That doesn't stop the coronation going ahead though but halfway through he is kidnapped and Kate being Kate has to go save him!

We heard so much about  Persephone in the first book and we finally get to meet her in this book. At first she's rude and I wasn't keen but towards the end of the book I grew to like her. The negative opinions is purely because the book is told from Kate's perspective and Kate doesn't feel like she can live up to Persephone and never be as good as her, As well as getting to know Persephone we get to know a couple of older characters a lot better which is lovely.

Small spoiler coming up - I'm very very happy to see that Kate and Henry finally did the dirt in this book of their own accord and there are slightly more details than in book 1. Call me a perv if you will, but I do like a cheeky scene!This book is loads better than the first. It's well written, it contains a lot more details and the plot is a lot bigger than the last.

 I do have two negatives though - well - not really negatives more like things I found frustrating. First of all the fact that Henry and Kate just can't catch a break. I love them as a couple and I envy them, I just want them to be together and happy but something bad always has to happen. Secondly, the ending is a huge cliff hanger. When I say huge I mean huge. I purchase the third book and began reading it straight away because it was just so unfair to leave it there. Completely unexpected!

I'm in the middle of Book 3 as you read this so keep your eyes open for the 3rd review. I hope you're all enjoying the 1st book if you've joined me reading the set.
My rating:

  2. Oh wow I have the first book of this series but have yet to finish it, I'm fine with knowing spoilers so it's no problem for me, but lots of things have happened looks like! I really need to start reading it and get updated! As a Humanities major, I'm always very interested in how mythology is used in a modern way to have new generations interested in it. Glad you've enjoyed it!
