Review: Goddess Interrupted (The Goddess Test #2) by Aimee Carter

on Jul 29, 2013
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.



Genre(s): Young Adult / Romance / Mythology







Review: While I enjoyed this book it didn't capture my interest as much as the first book did.

I think author relies very heavily on the myths, and our previous ideas of the characters rather than presenting situations for the characters traits to be shown.

On a distant yet relevant note (I promise) in another book I was recently reading one character said in reference to the main character, "I think she's the only rational one here." Well that's how I felt about Kate while reading this novel. All I kept thinking was that she was the only sane one in the book. All the rest of these people are crazy, and not in a good way.

Kate acts very much more like an adult than a teenager, while Henry acts very immature and teenager-ish. Making it incredibly hard to believe at moments that he is thousands of years old and a God. The other Gods act out of character often as well. I still don't have a good idea of Henry's character.

There was plenty of intrigue in Henry and Kate's relationship. They make a great couple but the endless drama surrounding their relationship became very tiring at times.

If there's one thing that romance novels have taught us its that communication is key in a relationship. So it was frustrating when at the end, it was presented like if Henry and Kate had just spoken earlier in the novel, then everything would have been fine.

That was, to put it frankly....lame.
