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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Before reading I was about to congratulate Hades and Kate, our newly married couple, and about to welcome Kate to underworld

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

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?

2.5 Stars

I liked the end
the other parts were veryyyy slow.

World building: ★★★/5
myths yes! but this world was a bit plain.
Characters: ★★★/5
Kate was annoying & stupid in this book (rather than the first) & she was full of doubts & I really wanted to punch her in the face!
Henry is my favourite in this series. (& Theo but his role is not much.) tho he acted weird in this book but at the end I liked him again.
Written style: ★★★/5
at least half of it was slow paced. but it was good in general.
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.

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

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

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!)?

Well this one had the meanest cliffhanger... I mean, really? Anywho... Kate returns after her 6 months away and all hell has broken lose in the Underworld. There was a freaking love triangle and it got on my lasttttt nerve. What made it worse was that Henry wasn't confused about if he wanted Kate or Persephone.. no, he'd chosen Persephone time and time again and Kate was still trying to make Henry love her and want her.

The book was provided by the publisher Harlequin through NetGalley for an honest review with no compensation provided.

Kate is now married to Henry, as husband and wife, he fantasizes about their married life and that she’ll be happy forever. Little does she know that’s not the case. The book opens up with a ceremony to announce she is queen of the underworld. Until a surprise attack led by Cronus, King of the Titans and some of the Gods themselves get attacked. This is only the first plan out of

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 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

This book moved so slowly and I felt like nothing really happened even obviously though things did. The climax of the story seemed to be dead in the center of the book and it wasn't even that climactic. If anything, the last page was the most interesting of the entire book. I feel like this book was a step down from The Goddess Test because any love that I had for any of the characters just disappeared. I really didn't care what happened to them in the end and that saddens me. Kate was so a

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
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
Natalie (Never trust a duck)
The last book ended with Kate leaving Henry for the summer, going off to Greece with James. This book begins with Kate arriving back at Eden manor/Underworld, what have you. And naturally, she expects Henry to be waiting there with his arms open so she can leap into them and have one happy reunion. Maybe that's just what I wanted, but suffice to say, it didn't happen like that. In fact, there was no loving reunion when in the last book they said, and I quote, "I love you," to each other.

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.

Recommends it for: Tamlin apologists but also ACOMAF trash; it's a win/win.

but oh my GODS the ending?!?!!!!!! (view spoiler)



K cool this book was fine. I was really just passing the time until my copy of ACOWAR was delivered. This book is super cliche, but I'm a sucker for it. It has the worst of love triangles, so if you really don't enjoy them; stay clear.

But since I'm somebody who likes to torture herself; I indulge in way too many to say I don't "enjoy" them.

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.

Full video review found here: Youtube

Goddess Interrupted was a fast paced, adventurous installment to the series. The stakes were so much higher, giving way to drama and action. We delved deeper into the Greek mythology, taking a look at the Gods, the Titans and exploring the Underworld.

Calliope's character development was a strong point in the story; she has become a great villain. Her hatred for Kate is understandable, yet she goes to the extremes in her

Can I just start with saying that I'm só glad that the whole ' He doesn't show me that he loves me' crap is over? I'm gonna be such a happy reader after I finished this review and started reading the last book.
I absolutely adore the way Aimee Carter writes out all the Greek gods. It makes mythology so much easier to understand for someone who has little to no information about the Greek gods. I found it more than interesting to see how Kate handled Persephone. her attitude, I love love love it!

With all of the positive reviews people are giving this book, I have to wonder if I read the same book as everyone else, or if I just got a copy whose cover had been swapped. The first book was just as bad as this one, but I love mythology and I thought the concept was interesting, so I picked up this one--even though I knew it was going to be bad, I tried to give Ms. Carter a chance. but, no.

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

Kate seems to think that Henry is becoming closed off again because he doesn't love her like she thought he did, but I think that he's doing it because he thinks that she is having an affair with James like Persephone did. I can believe that James never mentioned it to Kate that Henry might think that, I think the reason he didn't is because he also loves Kate. I think that its also why he tried to talk her out of going back because he was hoping that she would end up with him.

So wow. This book was a whirlwind. The first little bit seemed to drag on but dang did it take some nasty turns. Calliope is such a horrible horrible person. and why Ava, WHY?

One thing I didn't like was how much of a snot Persephone was and how much of an ass Henry was through most this book. It gets annoying.

I love Kate even more with this book it was so good. Better than the first. I can't wait to read the next and find out what happens!!!!
