Goodreads Synopsis: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 whom she would really rather not meet. Henry's first wife, Persephone.
I have to say I absolutely love stories about Greek mythology. As a child my parents would often watch films about this subject. So I’ve grown up with a love of all things mythological.
Goddess Interrupted is book two in the Goddess Test series, so I would recommend you read the first book which is called Goddess Test. The story carries on from the first book. Therefore I am not going to give too much of the story away in my review and I don’t want it to be a spoiler for people who have not read Goddess Test.
I have to say I was not disappointed with this book. The characters and the story line were great. I got a real taste of each characters nature and flaws. There’s a good mixture of heroes and villains, just enough to keep the reader on their toes.
The writing style flows nicely, which is what I enjoy in a book. Just enough detail without bogging the reader down.
The main character Kate was very likeable; she had certain qualities I could admire. She is by no means perfect, even if she is immortal. Sometimes it really does the reader good seeing character’s flaws, it somehow makes them more relatable. Well I just think Kate was awesome.
Would I read the next book in the series...... YES I would!! So I do highly recommend this book. But make sure you read Goddess Test first, this book follows on from there and you may get a little confused otherwise.
Story 4/5 – If you love a good love story with elements of the Greek Mythology then read this.
Cover Rating: 5/5 – I have to say that this cover really appeals to me, I love it. The girl is gorgeous and very goddess like.

About The Author:
I'm really not very interesting at all. I attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and received a degree in Screen Arts and Cultures (a fancy way of saying I was forced to watch a lot of old movies) with a subconcentration in Screenwriting. I write. I watch a lot of new movies. Read a lot of books. Tweet too much. Love dogs and have two spoiled Papillons.
