- The cover. It snagged me. I admit it.
Summary from GoodReads:
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.
Okay, I’m going to confess. I succumbed to an incredible amount of cover pressure when it comes to Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter. There were a number of reasons why I shouldn’t have picked this book up (and liked it!).
First, I’m almost always disappointed by covers like this – well, not by the cover but the content inside. Secondly, I haven’t read the first book of the Goddess Test series, and picking up book two first is a big nono for me. Third .. it’s a young adult romance and I’ve had it with them.
Those reasons said, there was one huge reason I picked up the book in spite of all of my instincts screaming NO! I had just read a really dark, intense book and I wanted something light and fluffy and I love, love, love Greek mythology. So I gave it a go.
Folks – I DEVOURED Goddess Interrupted. I read it in one straight sitting and I could not tear myself away from it. I was thirsty for the last 10% of the book! But could I be bothered to get a drink? No.. because I needed to know!
Even though this was the second book in the series, the story is not so complicated that I couldn’t get into it and get the gist of what happened in book 1 – and I’m glad I started with book 2 because I think book 1 might have turned me off when it comes to the series. As it was … I still wanted to smack Kate around a little bit, but I still, I was hugely entertained and had a lot of fun seeing the Greek myths come to life and interact with one another.
Final result – surprised me (and I rated it well as a result), hugely entertaining, and the perfect read for a day on the beach.
