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.

I really, really loved The Goddess Test, so when I saw The Goddess Interrupted on netgalley, and thanks to auto-approval, I started it that night! I was not disappointed at all. It had everything I could want in a second book.

The book picks up right after Kate and James come back from their sixth month trip to Greece. Kate can not wait to see Henry again, but it isn't going well in the Underworld right now, and what is happening could actually kill the Gods. When Henry and his brothers are kidnapped, Kate takes it upon herself to do whatever she can to free them, even if that means finding her sister, Persephone.

What I love most about these books in the characters, especially Henry. There is just so much to him, but he is such a sad person and I really want him to find the happiness that he so deserves with Kate.

The only thing I had a little issue with was Kate's inner monologues. After a while, the constant repeating of herself was getting very, very annoying. Other then that, The Goddess Interrupted was amazing!

The plot was very intriguing and I loved Aimée Carter's take on some classic Greek myths. The writing flowed very nicely and I was able to finish the book very quickly. It ended on a crazy cliffhanger and I can not wait for the third book! 


  1. Unfortunately I was very disappointed in this book. The ending was a sure shocker (even though I guessed it would happen at some point) . . . but overall an interesting turnpoint for the series. Great review.

  2. This series sounds interesting, but I still haven't decided whether to pick it up or not. You're pushing me over to the try it side. :)

  3. OMG. I CAN'T freaking wait for this book. I LOVED The Goddess Test. Goddess Interrupted is on my TOP TBR pile. I <3 Henry. UGH I hate cliffhangers but I can deal with it. Wonderful review.
