Goddess Interrupted
Goddess Interrupted - Aimee Carter I realized while reading Goddess Interrupted that I am too much of a fan of mythology, particularly Greek and Roman mythology, to ever read this series with a critical eye. Yes, it is flawed, but it is above all fun. Yes, there are some distinctly uncomfortable moments about all of the incestuous relationships that exist around the gods. However, they are so unabashedly unashamed of their behavior, so god-like, that one cannot help but shrug off the moral issues and just go with it. Besides, these are the Greek gods. They are famous for their eye-raising behaviors that would get a normal person shunned. Therein lies their appeal – at least for me.

Kate remains a fascinating character as she struggles to adapt to her new life as an immortal and learn more about her new family. She proves that she is as tough and determined as ever, battling against the impossible to save her loved ones. She has a backbone and a crafty intelligence that others tend to underestimate. More importantly, she never lets the other gods scare or intimidate her when she has every reason to be both. Because she is so strong, her moments of fragility are particularly poignant. It is all too easy to empathize with Kate as she fights for her love as well as her life and her place as Queen of the Underworld.

The story itself is rather goofy if one truly examines it. Calliope is insane by every stretch of the imagination, and her determination to obtain revenge against Kate for her punishment seems extreme. That she would snap so thoroughly after Kate’s success is a convenient plot point that does not bear scrutiny. Her extremist reactions can be rather amusing, however, and her misguided partnership with Cronus is fascinating if only because it shows just how unraveled and single-minded she has truly become. Persephone’s involvement in the story is somewhat understandable, as it adds another level of friction to the story and forces Kate to verbalize her feelings about her situation and take action. Still, Persephone is not a sympathetic character either, no matter how Kate views her desire for happiness. It makes for some uncomfortable scenes.

Goddess Interrupted is not meant for critical analysis. Lighthearted, it is meant to entertain, and entertain it does. For one, it never takes itself too seriously. The story flies with plenty of ups and downs to hold a reader’s interest. Kate’s fate is anything but set in stone, adding a level of suspense to the existing dangers. They may no longer use their Greek monikers, but Ms. Carter ensures readers know who each god is with sly nods to their powers and their personalities. The ending raises a new batch of questions and sets one’s heart racing as to what the future holds for Kate, Henry, and the rest of the Council.

Goddess Interrupted (The Goddess Test #2)
Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test) - Aime Carter

Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, 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.

 

 

 

Goddess Interrupted Review on K-Books

 

Wow, that is all I can say right now, just Wow. This book was incredible. I was a little reluctant to start it as I heard some people say it wasn't as good as the first one but I loved the first book and the novella, The Goddess Hunt, so much that I just had to start it. I was not disappointed, I was completely hooked from the first few chapters and couldn't stop reading, I just needed to know what happened.


Kate has passed the tests, she has been granted Immortality and she cannot wait to be reunited with her husband Henry. But her happiness is short lived when they are attacked and Henry is taken prisoner. Kate will do whatever she can to save him, but the one thing she must do is face her biggest threat. The person who could destroy her marriage and take Henry away from her forever. The one who destroyed his heart and left him broken, Persephone.


This instalment in the Goddess Test series just completely blew me away. I love books that include mythology so when I received the first one for review last year I just fell in love with it. I adore Greek Mythology and my favourite myth is that of Hades and Persephone so to find a series centred around them is the perfect series for me. I loved the first book and this one just had me completely sucked back into this world and hanging on every word waiting in anticipation for what was going to happen next. I was definitely not expecting the events that followed and I couldn't stop reading.


Kate is incredible, I really felt for her so much throughout this book. I know some people call her whiny and annoying but I do not get this feeling at all. She has been thrown into this world where she finds she is gaining powers she does not understand and all she wants is to have Henry by her side to help her. Kate really goes through a lot in this book and I just wanted to reach into the book and give her a hug, especially when seeing the way Henry reacts to Persephone.


I loved seeing Kate and Henry's relationship throughout this book. They definitely have their obstacles even though they are married. I feel like their relationship is just so different from those in other YA literature. I love that Kate is not afraid to show her feelings and goes through hell to make sure Henry knows how she feels whereas Henry is the one always holding back and afraid to show his feelings. It's so opposite from other books and I love that. 


I really had mixed feelings about some of the characters throughout this book. The main one being Henry. Oh, I love Henry so much but man did I want to hit him sometimes in this book. It's one of those times where you wanna reach into the book and just rearrange it a little, i.e pushing him and Kate together. My heart really broke for her when their relationship was so difficult and I wanted to hit Henry so bad for treating Kate as he did and he just broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes. But, he definitely redeemed himself by the end and I loved him again so much. The end scenes with him and Kate are just so cute and sweet I couldn't help love him and sit there going 'AWWWW'


This book was without a doubt incredible and boy did it end with a bang. I could not believe the ending and it made me rethink which characters I actually wanted to kill. It's such a twist and I definitely did not see it coming. It left me gaping and shocked by what had happened and I cannot wait for the third book. I just need the third book now and I cannot wait to see what happens. It's such a cliffhanger ending that I know I will be reading the next one as soon as I can get my hands on it. 


A fantastic instalment of a great mythological series and I can't wait to see what happens next. Roll on October.

Because I love this post too much to let it die
Goddess Interrupted - Aimee Carter

I would have left this book alone, but this part of the blurb made my blood boil and I had to say something about it:

"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."


If anyone's a threat Kate's happily-ever-after with Henry, it's Henry himself. He loved Persephone, but she didn't love him. She not-loved him so much that he eventually set her free and that's how The Goddess Test happens. If Henry is still so in love with Persephone that he is unable to fully commit himself to his relationship with Kate, that is his fault, not his goddess ex-wife's. It's unfair to blame her for a problem that is solely his because she can't control how he feels.

Persephone's feelings matter just as much as his. He may still love her, but how does she feel about him? If she does not love him or want to be in a relationship with him, then she is no "threat" to Kate and Henry's relationship and it disturbs me that they're trying to turn her into one. It feels like a cheap play for drama that pits girls against one another over a boy. It feels like it's also trying to say that any girls connected to the guy you like are a threat to you and your future with him. Even if she's an ex-wife of his that doesn't love him, never did, and never will.

YA PNR is riddled with problematic elements right now such as slut shaming, unhealthy relationship models, and rape culture, just to start off the list. Girl-on-girl hate over a boy is one we don't need to add to the list.


I wish I were old enough for a stiff drink.

Goddess Interrupted - Aimee Carter Ugh... what? I'm really not sure what happened here. This is a case of heroine fatigue. Kate, pushed to her limits by book 1, is shoved right off the cliff in book 2. Carter's voice was still so strong and there was still enough for me to love the characters so I'm not giving up yet.
I'm a little sad with what happened to the romance. Carter has a deft hand at squeezing the most angst possible out of a scene. It's a talent, except when it alienates me from the characters. One scene got me to the point where I don't know if I can root for Kate and Henry anymore. I think that Kate staying might be worse for both of them. I know that's not how it's going to work out. It's a romance! That being said if Kate where a real life friend I would be taking her to a divorce lawyer.
