I requested Goddess Interrupted as I'd seen potential, amidst the frustration, in The Goddess Test. I thought that, given time, hard work and thoughtful application to her prose, Carter might be a good author one day.

Unfortunately, that didn't quite happen here and part of me understands why. A lot of the reviews for The Goddess Test focus on:

GAH! The mythology! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and

A VIRGIN!? A VIRGIN!? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

After reading
There are many series came out in last few years on mythology, and most of them were adapted from Persephone Myth. Among them all I think,The Goddess Test was one of the best series, better than another adaption Abandon
Goddess Interrupted took place exactly after six months where The Goddess Test ended. The book started with Kate’s return to Henry, ready to acc...more

Seeing as I just finished the book, I'm going to need time and a bottle of vodka in order to process that ending. Epic cliffhanger to rival Holly Black's 'White Cat'.

Why yes, it did take me a while to process this book.. in a good way, of course. Mostly because I really wanted to save a review until I had the chance to read 'The Goddess Hunt' (the novella before this book).

I hold a soft spot in my heart for this series. It was one of the first books I publicly reviewed (The Goddess Test) and I l...more

No, seriously. The hell? Was this fanfiction? Fanfiction of a novel which is a modern-day retelling of a Greek myth?

Where was Awesome!Kate? I looked through the ENTIRE book for her. Where was the mouthy, sassy, confident young woman of the first book and novella? Where was the verbal slapdowns? Where was her sure-footed consistency in knowing she was doing the right thing, even if the other gods didn’t believe she was? Where was my feisty girl?

The cover is gorgeous. The Goddess Test was wonderful, I want this so bad!!

Cronus has awoken. Calliope wants revenge. Henry is in danger and Kate Winters has to track one soul out of a billion down in the Underworld, a soul she fears she will never live up to, and ask for her help.
Persephone.

Wow! This was one hell of a sequel!!
While the first book, Goddess Test, was structured around the possible relationship between Henry and Kate, Goddess Interrupted takes things up a notch. An old evil awakens, a plot for revenge thickens and the seeds of doubt is weaved throughout...more

I read Aimée Carter’s The Goddess Test last year and was disappointed in it, but saw enough potential in Carter that I was curious about the sequel, Goddess Interrupted. As it turns out, it’s better than The Goddess Test in one major way, but has problems of its own. Overall, they come out about equal and I’m giving them the same star rating.

The biggest problem with The Goddess Test was its bowdlerization of the Greek gods. Carter had rendered the gods nearly unrecognizable by making them believ...more

Posted on Book Chelle.

I read Aimee Carter’s The Goddess Test last year in a few hours. Afterwards, I proceeded to read it a couple more times. Carter spoke to me through the Kate’s voice. I fell in love with the retelling and reinvention of who Henry represented, and all the emotions felt through Kate. Goddess Interrupted was a great follow-up. I laughed, I cried, and most importantly, I loved.

After a six-month vacation in Greece, Kate finally comes home to Henry. But instead of a great welcome...more

Oh why oh why do I do this to myself? I read and reviewed The Goddess Test last year and was ultimately meh about the whole experience. There were just so many things I couldn't buy into. Quite frankly, a whole town created for this ONE girl (yeah, yeah, yeah I get that she was the last girl to get tested for Queen of the Underworld but STILL!)? Not to mention all of the gods and goddess running around in these constructed roles. Nope, couldn't fall hopeless in love with it even though I wanted...more

I may be rating this higher than I would have if I hadn't just read (and disliked) Underworld a week or so ago. Out of the two of these books, Goddess Interrupted is definitely better...in my opinion. Just thought I'd pass on that little nugget of information.

I've been desperately hoping that someone would come up with an awesome new take on the Hades/Persephone myth, which explains why I've been blowing through everything I can find that's even slightly related to their story. This series, unfo...more

First Thoughts:

From the front cover to the summary at the back I was already in love with this book. The cover itself is so gorgeous and beckons the reader to it and once I started this book (with much excitement) I never wanted to put it down. This book was so much more than I could have asked for; with all the conflicts and emotions this book about drained me by the end. And the end…well that’s not something I’m going to reveal but it was definitely a huge cliffhanger but so worth it!

I went in...more

Goddess Interrupted was totally awesome. Well Done, Aimee Carter. WELL DONE! Aimee Carter turned her pen into a mighty sword and wrote a fantastic sequel novel for the Goddess Test series. Carter definitely stirred up my emotions. I wanted to crawl into this novel and knock the Hades out of Henry (I couldn't resist) I thought Aimee Carter had me steaming hot in the Goddess Test with Henry, but this time she had me boiling hot with him, and the cliffhanger ending is driving me crazy. Oh I wish I...more

"If I were a better man, I would be able to show you the love and affection you deserve. As I am not, I can only offer you what I'm capable of giving. But I assure you, just because I do not show it, doesn't mean I do not feel it.”

I'm not going to lie--for the majority of the time I was reading this book I was angry. Really angry. Not angry as in I didn't like it, but angry as in "How could [insert character] do that to [insert character]?" But if a book managed to make me feel so angry that I wanted to rip a character's head off then that's because I was involved in it enough to do so. Which means despite all the things that happened in Goddess Intterrupted and how predic...more

Twists, drama, betrayal, a little bit of romance and a touch of the unknown are what fans of Aimee Carter's Goddess Test series can except to find in her sequel, Goddess Interrupted. I couldn't wait to jump back into this series. I wasn't sure what to to except with this sequel, as I had a lot of unanswered questions after reading the first book in this series, and I definitely received a few answers I wanted and then some. What Aimee did with her storyline completely took me by surprised. I was...more

Cover Impressions: The cover is quite beautiful and matches well with the previous one in the series. I like the styling of the model in a simple dress and headband with natural wavy hair. Although a small part of me does wish it showed some reflection of the opulence of the Underworld palace.

Confession time: there are parts of parts of this book that I liked. And no, that wasn't a typo, I really mean "parts of parts", because it's difficult to get behind any one aspect of this novel completely. But I felt like there was an attempt, at least, to acknowledge, and even address a few of the problematic issues, and that's more than can be said for most YAPR books. Furthermore, I was thoroughly impressed by the fact that characters in this book actually had arcs.

I know, how revolutionary,...more
Jenny
Meh. I didn't like it much. Here's why:

Kate in this book is: insecure, codependent, maudlin, petulant, jealous, desperate, idiotic.

These things are fine with me - in small doses at low moments of inner struggle or whatever. We all have our times of self-doubt and insecurity and we all let it make us a little bit crazy once in a while. It could have provided some decent character depth to have a heroine who went through some heart-wrenching moments of self-doubt. But this "I'm not good enough" ra...more

Please please please be great because I loved your first one, but so many times the sequel falls short. Please please please be great.

So it was. I loved it...again a great book. Again the beginning wasn't great as I remember the beginning of the first lacking, but once this author gets going, she really hooks me in. Chic lit with all the emotions...jealous, anger, guilt, regret, joy, closeness, rejection and so many more. I was bawling toward the end. Main touched such true emotion. Great writin...more

Ohemgee! How amazing was this book?
And that ending- what was that!?
It wasn't as predictable as I thought.
I feel sorry for James, and Ava I know she would never have done what calliope claims. She's even loyal and a good friend. A friend that any girl hopes to have.
Despite all I really shockingly Like Pespherone, I think she'll be a good big sis.

Rating: 3.5/5

A bit darker and fraught with more emotional intensity than its predecessor, Goddess Interrupted takes us beneath the surface both literally and figuratively as Kate descends to the Underworld after her absence over the summer and finds the progress she made with Henry before her departure lost behind his reinforced defensive shields. The tenuous thread of hope she mustered after he saved her life in the previous book quickly frays, the stark realization that she’s in a relationship...more

Goddess Interrupted was simply brilliant! I thoroughly enjoyed The Goddess Test and was so glad I was able to dive right into the second book immediately! I felt that this one took a bit of time to really get to the action, though. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it as much as book one but it quickly picked up and I read the second half without even looking away from the page once! It definitely did not disappoint.

Kate has made her choice. She decided she wanted to become immortal...more

This book could have been so great!Goddess Interrupted is darker and has a lot more action than The Goddess Test. There is more world building, more of the characters personalities are
revealed, and there are some seriously freaky things going down in Goddess-town.

You know a book is beyond words fantastic when you never want it to end, when every page you read you wish 10 more replaced it. Well, that is definitely the kind of book GODDESS INTERRUPTED is. Aimee Carter sure knows how to invoke every possible human emotion with her writing. My heart nearly pumped out of my chest and the tears, oh there were tears. I could feel everything that the characters were feeling. I’m so in love with this story!
