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.
MIND BLOWING. EPIC. EVEN BETTER THEN THE GODDESS TEST! WHY AM I USING ALL CAPS? I DUNNO. YOU TELL ME. PERHAPS I SHOULD STOP. OKAY, FINE. I KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE IT WHEN REVIEWERS SHOUT AT YOU. Happy now? That's good.... let's get back to the book at hand, shall we? Yes, we shall.
In Goddess Interrupted, Kate has been vacationing in Greece all summer and is returning to the underworld for fall and winter, to serve as Henry's wife and queen of the underworld. But even before she can unpack, the titans are here, and they've abducted Henry. Needless to say, it seems like Summer was a bit more fun the how fall is beginning for Kate.
The one thing I disliked about this book is how Kate went from a selfless being, to someone who cared more about if Henry loved her the way he loved Persephone, more so then stopping a titan who could end the world as we know it. Thankfully she got better halfway through, so if you start to get mad at her, just keep going.
The drama in this book was really rich, with unexpected plot twists and a one heck of a cliffhanger ending. You never who who was good and who was bad. It was something that few authors could pull off without reader fatigue, but Aimée Carter is one of those authors.
I already mentioned the ending, so I'm going to elaborate. The ending is something NO ONE will be able to see coming, that makes the wait for The Goddess Inheritance even more painful then it was without a doubt going to be. Though most of you won't have the will power, read this one after you have the 3rd, so unlike me you won't have to suffer.
One of the best sequels, EVER. My favorite read of 2012 so far!
Cover Comments: I love the trees, and the expression on the model's face. The font is a really nice touch too.
