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.After finishing the last page of THE GODDESS TEST, the first book in this series, I quite literally ran to the store and bought a copy of GODDESS INTERRUPTED. Well actually I drove, but it was quite fast driving.
Aimee Carter is a mastermind. She not only wrote one of the best books I have ever read, but has also created one of the best sequels I have ever read. I think she either is superhuman, or just knows exactly what I want.
Right from the very first page GODDESS INTERRUPTED takes off with Kate and Henry's new life. With Kate just recently becoming immortal, and even more recently moving in to the Underworld, there is a lot of stress in her life. Add to that a man she's supposed to rule with who shows little to no affection for her, a very angry and very powerful god after said man, AND a gorgeous ex-wife of said man who said man seems to still be in love with, well Kate has got a lot on her plate. This story is filled with drama, action, mystery, mythology, and a teeny bit of romance (well more than a teeny when it comes to a couple characters...). The story was never slow and had me turning page after page.
Along with the wonderful plot, the characters were still the ones I left in the first book. It's rare for me to connect and really love all of the characters of a book, but in this series I do. Aimee has created such wonderful characters that I just cannot get enough of! I'd have to say Henry is one of my favorite male characters of all time too!
Overall this was the perfect sequel to THE GODDESS TEST. I would honestly not change a thing about it, and if you haven't already started this series you need to! Right now!
