Review:

Goddess Interrupted picks up right after The Goddess Hunt ends. Kate has returned from her vacation in Greece and prepares to officially become Queen of the Underworld. Unfortunately fate has other plans and now Kate and Henry are in a fight not only for their lives but that of every man, woman, and child on the planet.

I really love this series, the character progression is something that keeps me coming back. Kate on the other hand *sigh* she just frustrates me to no end. On the surface, I love Kate, she is smart, strong,brave, and has an infectious personality. What is frustrating is her insecurities about her relationship with Henry. Her behavior in regards to Henry is downright pathetic and is a serious character flaw. Henry at least has an excuse to be distant, Persephone screwed him up badly. You'd think Kate would be doing everything in her power to make him forget about Persephone but nooo..... she'd rather brood around the castle like a spoiled child. Kate even throws James in Henry's face knowing damn well she has no romantic feelings towards him. It made me really dislike her. On the upside at least her character is consistent in her behavior between books.

On the flip side Ava, James, and Henry were highly enjoyable. Even with Henry disappearing for chapters at a time you still felt his presence in the pages which was nice. Ava also remains close to Kate in Goddess Interrupted. I liked that there relationship remained close despite everything going on. Even the "bad guys" were enjoyable. Calliope and Cronus are certainly a twisted pair. Yet, in a way I find Calliope worse than Cronus. Her hatred runs deep and knows no bounds. I am also convinced she is off her rocker nuts. Calliope made Persephone look like a saint compared to her.

Overall the romance, action, and character development makes Goddess Interrupted a worthy addition to the series. After the OMG cliffhanger ending, I cannot wait to see where the characters are headed in the next book. In the end I will be rating Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter ★★★★.

    1. If you plan on reading the series make sure to pick up The Goddess Hunt which is free on Amazon at the moment. It really nicely bridges the gap between book 1 + 2.

  2. Yes! That ending was something, wasn't it??? Ahh! So glad to see you enjoyed this book. I also got frustrated with Kate because she just sounded all needy and all. And yes, Calliope, I thought, was worse than Cronus. I think what made her worse was the fact that she was so emotional. There was no way you could reason with her. Great review!
    Cheers!
