Early Review: Goddess Interrupted

Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2)Goddess Interrupted
by Aimee Carter
Harlequin Teen
releases 3.27.2012

My Thoughts On:
Goddess Interrupted is a continuation of the Goddess Test series that picks up where book one left off. Kate Winters is married to Hades the Kind of the Underworld and things are going to be looking up for her. After six months on earth, in fact six months with Henry's (Hades) brother James she is coming to the underworld tanned and ready for six months with her husband. What she arrives to is being in the middle of a battlefield and not a romantic reunion, but a future getting colder and more alone by the minute.

Aimee Carter has created a modern adaptation of Greek myths in her Goddess Test series and this time around nothing is getting easier for her characters. With a whole host of unfaithful ladies and a titan on the loose nothing seems to get done in the underworld and this time Kate is conflicted about her feelings and in her motivations.

James reminds Kate that she has a choice in her life and in her future so at the cusp of the coronation ceremony when Kate hesitates as Henry asks if she would take up the role as Queen of the Underworld, it sums of the whole book really.

With Goddess Test there was a lot of character and plot development and a greater hint of amazing things to come with the great characters in this series but with Goddess Interrupted, I felt the story was just that interrupted.
I cannot wait to see what the third book brings to us readers.

Book Blurb from the Publisher:
