Summary from Goodreads:

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.

My Thoughts:

It took me a little bit to get into Goddess Interrupted for the fact that it’s been a long while since I read the ARC of The Goddess Test, which was one of my top 5 books of 2011. I couldn’t remember all the details but it wasn’t long before all of its sweetness and awesomeness came flooding back!

Goddess Interrupted was one giant race. A race to save Henry, a race to find answers. And it was one gigantic ball of frustration. Henry was… grrrrr….. Henry was still Henry, just not the good side of Henry we all want to see Kate live happily ever after with. There is reasoning but it’s frustrating. Yet it’s compelling in a way that makes you race through the pages to make sure everything is going to work out okay in the end.

The overall pacing of the book threw me a bit. I felt lost frequently, not sure I’d caught everything that had happened. That’s my only complaint about Goddess Interrupted.

If you loved The Goddess Test you’ll love this sequel. And if you haven’t read the first book I highly recommend you do so! I can’t wait for the third book! (my review of The Goddess Test)

4 out of 5 stars!

Nicolas Ghesquiere has finally shown his first collection for Louis Vuitton. And as I went through my photos after the show to take a closer look at each detail, I found myself falling in love with a lot of the pieces in the collection.
