Review - Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter

Author - Aimee Carter
Publisher - HarlequinTeen
Release Date - March 27th, 2012, 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.

Kate went through a lot during The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted picks right back up as she is coming home to rejoin Henry and be crowned Queen of the Underworld. During the time that she wasn’t with Henry she was with James exploring and counting down the days until she could come home to her new life. I was quickly brought back into this beautiful world that Aimee has created.


Things aren’t as easy as Kate thought that they would be, Henry is being just as distant – if not more – than he was at the beginning of their relationship in Goddess Test. It doesn’t seem that Kate will catch a break so quickly in Goddess Interrupted. She has to fight for Henry and what she feels in her heart, and fight she does. It pains her that she has to go to the one person that has brought Henry so much pain, Persephone but that is what it takes so that is what she does. Not only do we get to see what Persephone is like but a completely different side of Henry that we’ve never seen before. I will say that Kate did tend to rant that Henry didn’t love her, or questioned those that told her that he in fact does love her.

We are given so much more with the characters in this wonderfully created sequel. I picked this up knowing that it would be a wonderful read based off of the first novel and I wasn’t disappointed. I devoured this in mere hours. If you haven’t read The Goddess Test I recommend doing so now then grabbing this one because you won’t want to wait to find out more. And the ending to this one can I just say OMG it left me O.O I was super shocked and absolutely cannot wait for the next in this series! Aimee has become one of my favorite authors with the way that she builds the worlds and her characters. I loved every bit of it and am still in shock over that ending!
