Book Review & Pre-order Giveaway: Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter

Title: Goddess Interrupted
Author: Aimee Carter
Release Date: 27th March 2012
Published by: HarlequinTeen
Edition: ARC e-copy from NetGalley
Pages: 304
Genre: YA, Fantasy

Blurb (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 Rating:A MUST READ!!!


My Review: Firstly I'd like to thank HarlequinTeen and NetGalley for giving me the opportuntiy to review Goddess Interrupted, I was so thrilled to get my confirmation email. After reading The Goddess Test I was left dying for more.

What to say except...I LOVED IT!!! Aimee Carter has given us a fantastic, thrilling, nail bitting continuation in her Goddess Test series. This book has more action, more suspense and so many twists and turns you'll be on the edge of your seat.

I must admit this book it plays with your emotions. At times I really felt for Kate and had my little teary moments while others I was so frustrated with a certain Henry aka Hades (let me say he does justice to that name!), at one point I wanted to jump in the book and give him a good slap around the ears. Even through those feelings I still hung onto every word, and the ending was most definitely a jaw dropping moment. Aimee has most definitely given us a 'gotta have the next book NOW' cliff-hanger, very well done!

This book starts 6 months after The Goddess Test when Kate is returning from her holiday and ready to start her 6 months with Henry. From the first day she arrives back all hell breaks loose in the underworld. We're taken on quite a ride. We have all our old characters back and meet a few new ones, one in particular that also needs a kick in the pants (Haha I had too).

I don't want to give too much away so, I'll just say that if you haven't read this series yet than go get your copy of The Goddess Test and start now, so your ready for when this amazing book gets released.

    As a Goddess I would have the power to control and manipulate time.
    This would allow me to help my devoted and fanatical worshipers to make amends for their past failures and mistakes by having a second crack at it.
    Also it would allow me to relive those wonderful first moments that I had with 'THOSE' books ♥ you know the one's that you wish you could discover and read for the first time again! ♥
