Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter

Review of Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter published by Harlequin Teen
Goddess Interrupted
Author: Aimee Carter
Genre: Young Adult
Format: ebook
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: 3-27-12
After 6 months of living apart from Henry, Kate returns hoping to build on what she and Henry had. Instead of courtship, she finds the gods preparing for war against a terrifying power. Now Persephone is back in the picture and Kate must face her biggest fears and their common enemy.

When Kate came back to Henry, she expected to pick up where they left off – in love.  Things didn’t exactly go as planned when Calliope decided to unleash something that had even the gods wondering if they could survive.  Where The Goddess Test set up Kate’s new world and gave you an introduction to the gods, Goddess Interrupted picks you up and throws yo in the middle of an epic battle where those that seemed invincible must face the one thing that could destroy them.  Of course, in the middle of this, Kate and Henry are still trying to figure out how to be a couple and where their feelings fit into all of the chaos around them.

I think what I liked most about this book was the insight into Henry’s character through Persephone’s presence.  Finally, the ghost that has haunted his relationship with Kate is real and can be confronted.  I thought it was a good dimension of the story and let us see Henry as a little more human, as someone who could show that he was hurt.  Although her being there is not Kate’s favorite thing ever, I think it moved their relationship forward.  One thing that kind of bothered me was Kate’s constant begging.  She begged Henry to love her and to tell her he loved her.  Kate is not always sure of herself, but it seemed inconsistent of her to battle a titan one minute and beg for love the next.  I’m hoping that this aspect of the story will get a little more light in the third book and I certainly wouldn’t let that keep you from reading this one.  Goddess Interrupted was a little more serious than the first book, but it was filled with a lot of intrigue and action.  I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to book three!

  1. I bet you love that the heroine’s name is Kate. I feel the same when I’m reading Kelley Armstrong’s Darkness Rising where the heroine is Maya. 😀

    This is the second positive review I’ve read in the last few days. I can’t even remember why I removed the series from my tbr, but I might have to reconsider.

  2. I have to say that I am loving these books. Greek mythology is a big thing with me so I enjoy the twist that Aimee Carter displayed with these. I agree with you about the demanding nature of Kate towards Henry but, putting the god aspect aside, that was how I was able to connect with Kate in the novel. I was in a relationship where it was hard to really read the affection from my boyfriend and it came to a point that whenever we were with each other or talked to each other I had no idea how he was even feeling. I wasn’t as demanding as Kate had been but I do see where she is coming from when she took on such a responsibility as go through the trials in order to not only save Henry but to realize that she loves him. I’m glad you enjoyed the book and thank you for a wonderful review, Kate! Have a wonderful day!
