Goodreads Summary:

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 whom she would really rather not meet. Henry’s first wife, Persephone

My Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

I had enjoyed reading the enticing twist of the first novel, Goddess Test, but Goddess Interrupted really took me by surprise. It was much more thrilling than I expected, and the development of the plot was awesome. I loved the anticipation and tension. This book really kept me guessing, especially when it came to Henry. I really want to understand him, but he’s so mysterious and insulated. You never really know what he is thinking or what he might do. But apparently he’s not the only elusive character in the series, and the unexpected turns and betrayals of this novel just totally floored me.

I also was truly amazed how well written this novel was. I had enjoyed Goddess Test, and learned a lot about Kate. I could get inside her head and understand the trials and emotions she was going through. But in Goddess Interrupted, I actually felt as if I became Kate. The writing was so powerful that I actually could feel her emotions and physical pain. I even felt like it was me trying to rescue Henry and win his love. It really blew my mind how engulfed I became in the story.

But the real bomb shell was the twist at the end. OMG! I can’t wait for the third book!
