Coming March 27, 2012

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 into this book with semi-high expectations, after reading “The Goddess Test” I expected this book to be good but perhaps not as good as the first book but this book totally blew the first one out of the water. This book had so many deep conflicts that it literally evoked all my emotions, caused me to almost chuck my kindle across the room (I have since apologized to it for even the thought) and by the end though I wasn’t in all ways satisfied (You read the end and then tell me how you feel) I was satisfied in the sense that “Goddess Interrupted” ended perfectly; some conflicts were resolved one way or another and it also set things up for “The Goddess Inheritance”. The plot of this book was definitely really thought out, everything was planned accordingly and the action and slower moments were placed with strategic grace. The description in this book was amazing, how she described the characters and surroundings helped evoke the feeling of fear, awe, and sadness. There’s just something about this author where she can evoke the strongest feelings just by description alone. The characters were just as lively in this book as they were in the first. They each had their own opinion and personality. And there was some transformations blooming in this book, though they still have a ways to go the author provided us with an insight into what the future selves of them could be. The dialogue wasn’t fake or out of character, what the characters said seemed to fit them like a glove. The writing itself was filled with deep concentration and emotions, without this author’s particular style of writing I don’t think this book could have been as deep and conflicting as it was. It seriously evoked some strong feelings in me; some books can do that to me and some can’t. But boy when you do find a book such as this be prepared to grab a tissue and be well rested; this book will drain you both physically and mentally. And before you start this book be prepared to wipe out any future day’s plans, once you start this book it is hard to put down; you just HAVE to know what happens next; to see the fate of all of these beloved characters. This book was one hell of a ride but all I can do to prepare you is tell you to buckle up and be prepared for one roller-coaster of a book; it’s filled with both beauty and excitement. When you think you have a break something soon after comes and sweeps you off your feet once again.
Goodreads Summary:

Kate Winters has won immortality.

But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, 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.

Last Thoughts:
I would recommend this to any fan of “The Goddess Test” this will really knock your socks off. I’d also recommend this to you if you haven’t started this series, it really has a great re-telling of Hades and Persephone but with a lot more twists. I wouldn’t however recommend this if you’re not a fan of the whole underworld and Hades theory. If you have trouble reading books with twisted love and a re-telling of the Hades and Persephone tale than don’t read this. But this book is one fans of mythology and fantasy do not want to miss. It has some many elements that are suitable for teens and older. This author is both talented in creating an in-depth characters and stories but also creating something worth reading over and over again.

My Rating:
