Goddess Interrupted Review

304 pages

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 (ARC):
I actually enjoyed this novel more than the first one. Kate has grown a lot since the last novel but still has some of the same insecurities and fears. I loved seeing Kate's bravery in trying to save Henry and her other friends from the King of the Titans. Henry is still the mysterious, brooding type who you just want to see happy with Kate. The conflict between Henry and Kate causes a lot of emotion on Kate's part and I really empathized with her. The meeting between Persephone and Kate was everything you expect it to be and more. It brings up a lot of questions and answers about Henry for Kate. There is also the romantic triangle between James, Kate, and Henry even though it seems a bit one-sided on some parts. Other than the romantic drama there is a fair amount of action. I was completely hooked and the ending leaves you with a cliffhanger that makes you anticipate the next book. I definitely recommend that you read this novel but make sure you read The Goddess Test first.
