The Blurb from Goodreads: 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.

The Review: "If I were a better man, I would be able to show you the love and affection you deserve. As I am not, I can only offer you what I'm capable of giving. But I assure you, just because I do not show it, doesn't mean I do not feel it.”

Last year Aimee Carter left me astounded when I read her debut novel The Goddess Test and now Goddess Interrupted is here and she has done it yet again. Goddess Interrupted is a captivating, intriguing and magical read – one that I managed to devour in 24 hours and I’m dying for more.

Kate Winters has spent the last six months on summer vacation, away from Henry as per their arrangement. But now it’s time to go back and be crowned as Queen of the Underworld and be forever tied to Henry. There is nothing more in the world that Kate wants than to be with Henry but when Henry starts acting secretive and distant with her, she starts questioning everything she was once lead to believe.  Soon she finds out that Cronus – The King of the Titans, is trying to escape his prison and he is hell bent on killing the one’s Kate cares about most.  When Henry is kidnapped by Cronus, it’s down to Kate to try and rescue him but she needs help from the one person she never wanted to meet…..Persephone’s…..Henry’s ex wife. Can Kate and Henry overcome the obstacles of their relationship and can Kate keep all her loved ones safe?

Goddess Interrupted is absolutely beautiful read and I loved every minute of it. I started reading it and I honestly couldn’t put it down but I have to admit, I was a little disappointed at the start of it. After the ending in The Goddess Test, I was expecting Kate and Henry’s relationship to be completely different because they are in love with each other now. So admittedly, the first few chapters threw me because everything wasn’t all hearts and flowers between them but, what I got was something so much more. It was so raw, emotional and real – that it was so heartbreakingly good and it bought me to tears a few times. Kate and Henry’s relationship is really put through the tests during this book and I felt for both of their situations but I’m just glad they became a stronger couple for it. Their moments together at the end of the book really were a joy to read, I loved every minute of it and I think Aimee Carter did a fantastic job creating a couple that do have faults but are perfect for each other in every way.

This time around we get to know our favourite Gods all the more and I thought they all bought a level of mystery with them. Each and every one of them has two personalities; their human side and their Immortal side, and trying to unravel them was really fascinating. I especially loved getting to know Ava better and of course, Henry was the best to get to know more.

What I enjoyed about this book so much was how unpredictable it is. I honestly didn’t know what was going to come next and let me say, I am so shocked with the results….but in such a good way that I need the final book now. Honestly, the ending of the book is going to blow you’re mind and leave you speechless – yeah it’s that good!

Overall, Goddess Interrupted is just as good as The Goddess Test if not, even better! And I cannot wait to see what is next installed for us.

Great review! You have gotten me to change my mind about this book! I wasn't sure if I wanted to read it after the first book not going so well for me, but now I am definitely curious. :)

Debbie said...

Nymeria said...

My favorite goddess is Athena! :)

Tasnim said...

I really like Zeus

caroline.taylor078 said...

My fave is probably Aphrodite!

mimz said...

I think that would be Athena.

Bex said...

I'd say Apollo, simply because he's a hottie and he's the God of the sun, prophecies, archery, healing, and music, among other things. Otherwise it would be Ares because he's the God of war and he is dangerous... and if he's good enough for Aphrodite he's good enough for me! :-)

I love Athena cause she's the goddess with it all, really intelligent, beautiful and can kick ass cause she's also the goddess of war! I like Posidon and Zeus as well, and Hermes!

Elodie said...

I still haven't read The Goddess Test thought I'm dying to .. I love Greek mythology and I still haven't read a YA book about it. I'm glad you enjoyed Goddess Interrupted so much Donna. I love when books are unpredictable too .. it's always annoying to figure out what's going to happen at the end of the book very easily and quickly.
Thanks for the amaing giveaway !! It's so generous of you to offer your copy of the book, particularly since you liked it that much :) !! It's also very sweet to open the giveaway to Europe : HAPPY FRENCH ME !! :)
If I had t choose my favourite goddess I'd go with Athena because I love how brave and kind she is.
I also love Poseidon and Zeus !!
Thanks again :)
