Synopsis ( via Goodreads):
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
The Goddess Test was one of my favourite books of 2011 so i was extremely excited to get Goddess Interrupted to read and review and I can definitely say that it did not disappoint!
Kate has spent the summer months travelling and is back to spend her six months in Hades with Henry. However Henry suddenly seems colder and she is no longer sure of his feelings and before they can work it, the king of the titans threatens to escape and end the world and the gods with it.
This story is a worthy follower to the Goddess Test with a great mixture of romance, suspense, myth and just plain good story. Carter weaves the big picture with the smaller threads brilliantly so we see Kate having to confront her worst fears about her relationship with Henry while at the same time try to help save him from the clutches of the King of the Titans and Henry must come to terms with his past while trying to save the world.
Lastly without wanting to spoil any of the story, I cannot wait for the third instalment Goddess Inherited (OMG!!)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Goddess Interrupted and have no qualms about giving it four stars:-)
