Firstly, I’d like to say that I am sorry for not posting my TT. Hopefully, I’ll remember next time!

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.

Kate is back from her six months at Greece. However, instead of falling into the arms of Henry, embracing each other for the first time in 6 months, Henry is cold and desolate. And what’s more frightening is that Henry has a large cut across his face, but what could make a god bleed?

Kate. If I ever find you, I’d like to say this; *clears throat*
I never, NEVER. Have seen such a cry baby, helpless whiny teenager like you before. I cannot even count on my fingers of the times you’ve cried, just stood there sulkily or whined/complained. You’ve infuriated me enough, but it so happens to be that you cannot shut up either even though you are so dull headed. For 20 pages you barely say a thing then you go off like you’ve had an epiphany. Talking about epiphanies, you need a few ones for your facts about Greek mythology. Okay yes, I know my Greek stuff because its my favourite genre but I’m sure Irene/Athena taught you well enough in The GoddessTest to work out who was who. Eg: Walter : Zeus *dies in fustration*

Henry is rather…nothing. He barely talks but I can feel his caring-ness for Kate and he is still the most loveable character here. Ava..I know she’s Aphrodite, but that doesn’t give her the right to be a slut. She was rather disturbing and annoying as the ending came closer. James is alright, I don’t like how he’s trying to get between Henry and Kate but then at times, he is really gentle and empathetic.

Goddess Interrupted is a really fast read. I envy it’s plot…it’s really good that I wish it could be mine. There was so much action and twists going on I thought my mind would combust. Thankfully it didn’t but it left me awed. BRAVO!

*Contains spoiler for the next paragraph*
The slightest flaw in the plot was the ending. This is the second time Henry and Kate had sex and it was due to Ava (well this time) and Calliope. I think I may know what Aimee tried to do but is just not necessary to make it another ‘accident’. I felt sorry for Kate after that. I HATE YOU AVA!

Goddess Interrupted contained several ups and downs for me, though I still rather liked it. Greek mythology lovers should look out for this book as it will most likely please them. Well structured, beautiful retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth.

    I really want to read this series. I feel like this storyline in something new in a saturated dystopian driven YA genre. I’m definitely picking this up next time at Barnes & Nobles.
