Quick Review: Goddess Interrupted



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.

I was kind of unsure if I wanted to read this.  I really liked the first book and I was looking forward to the second book.  I've read a lot of not so good reviews for it though.  People say Kate is whiny and annoying.  BUT, I'm glad I read it.  I liked it and I think it's a perfect set up for the third book which I wish I could read TODAY.

I gobbled this book up.  It kept me interested.  I felt Kate in this book.  I felt her insecurities and self doubt.  For me, it was a good thing.  I think it's the times that life feels hardest and you feel the most doubt but choose to carry on that tells the real tale of who you are.  I felt like Kate had this going on.

Yeah, Henry is kind of a dumb head.  Not so brilliant when it comes to love.  But, I have hope that he'll figure it all out in the end.  

Persephone is a character I hope we continue to get to know better.  

That's all really.  :)  Do you agree with me?  Disagree?

Content:  some mild swearing and talk about sleeping around and sexual encounters.


  1. Ahhh, can't wait to get my hands on this book!!! Great review. I've read some that were up and down, just makes me want to grab it and see how I feel :)

  2. I loved this one as well! I like that Kate is a little unsecure. I mean she's presented with the incarnations of Greek gods, who wouldn't have freaked and been weird at first.

    I thought this one really does present some challenges for Kate as well. Henry, yeah, wanted to bop some sense into him. A pretty emotional read for me ever now and then!

    Cannot wait to read the third one, but I guess book 2.5 will have to suffice!

  3. I've heard a lot about this book!
    Can't wait to read it! :)
    Thank you!! :)

  4. I love mythology! I keep telling myself that I'll get to this book eventually, but I haven't read it yet.

  5. I only kind-of liked the first book in this series so I wasn't sure if it was worth it reading the sequel or not as there have been some negative reviews on this; but now I think I'll probably give it a try.

  6. This is one of those books that I really need to pick up one of these days! The first one was good, I hope this one is the same! Thank you for the review.

  7. I LOVED this book! I really liked the Goddess Test, but this novel was even better! Great review! However, I really didn't like Persephone at all, which is kind of funny because I like her in actual mythology.
