Review: Goddess Interrupted
Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“The Goddess Test” ended with Kate becoming an immortal and James accompanying her on her first Spring/Summer abroad.
“The Goddess Interrupted” picks up with Kate and James returning from their time abroad. Kate is anxious to get back to Eden Manor to be with Henry. All during their time apart, where ever Kate went, she looked for Henry hoping to catch glimpses of him. Upon her return home, however, he seems distant and Kate is devastated.
As Kate tries to come to grips with this “all-too-distant” Henry, the Gods are dealing with the waking of Kronus and the imminent threat of his escape from Tartarus. Kate, who can’t stand by and watch the destruction, works to help in any way possible which turns out to include tracking down Persephone and getting her to help. As if Henry wasn’t distant enough, now we have to drag the former love of his life into the fray.
I really loved “The Goddess Test” and was curious to see how Aimee Carter would handle the continuation of the story. Well she handled it beautifully, and she remained true to the spirit of the Greek Mythology she took her inspiration from, which I applaud her for!!!
Calliope is back with a vengeance and at the center of all the chaos. You know what they say about a woman scorned! And I reveled in the fact that Persephone was integral to the story thereby driving that wedge between Kate and Henry even further. All the miscommunication and partial psychic visions just made that wedge bigger and bigger! Then to give us that cliffhanger…ARGH! So Aimee, how long are you going to make we wait to find out how that gets resolved??
Personally, I loved “Goddess Interrupted” just as much as “Goddess Test”…I’d be hard pressed to choose between the two. Aimee Carter is an easy author to read and her stories grab me and make it nearly impossible for me to put down. I really look forward to reading and enjoying more from her.
