"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."

First Line: Calliope trudged through the sunny field as she ignored the babble of the redhead trailing behind her.

Review: If you are a lover of Greek Mythology be warned that Goddess Interrupted does not follow the actual myths. Carter has taken the myths and put major twists to pretty much all of it. And for a person like me who loves her Greek Mythology at times it can be frustrating but when I read it and take it for what it is, it's actually an enjoyable read.

First and foremost I still can't stand Henry. He infuriates me through the entire novel. It is so wrong the way he treats Kate. Plain and simple I do not like him even in the end when he did try to make things better between the two of them the damage had been done as far as my feelings towards him goes. Although I have to admit Carter did do a great job writing his character because it takes a lot for me to get so emotionally pissed off at a character. I think I might have had understood him better if there were a few chapters written from his point of view.

What I was interested in going into this novel was how Kate and Persephone would interact. And Persephone definitely made things interesting. As far as Kate's character is concerned she is a much stronger character then in the previous book but my biggest complaint about her was she whined so much about her insecurities with Henry.

What I did like was how Carter incorporated the Titans into the story line. And I actually like Calliope the Villain of the story, ( I know what a weird thing to say) only because she was very consistent character wise and with her hatred towards Kate even after her major plans failed she still found ways to disrupt Kate's life, the ending which is a major cliffhanger being one of them.

Overall I found this to be a quick read and I'm even looking forward to the third book in the series.


  1. Your review reminds me of a middle-grade/younger YA book I just read with my daughter: The Princess Curse. It's a mix between two fairy tales (12 Dancing Princesses & Beauty and the Beast) and contains some Underworld elements. I really enjoyed Princess Curse, so I think I may enjoy this one too.

    1. I like the sound of The Princess Curse, but I have to wait a few more years before my girls are old enough to truly enjoy the middle grade books.

      If you do decide to pick this up check out Goddess Test it is the first in the series.
