Goddess Interrupted is about Kate Winters who has won immortality and has come back to the manor to become the Queen of the Underworld. But at the coronation evil strikes and shes literally a goddess interrupted.

In the second book of The Goddess Test trilogy, Goddess Interrupted  you see a lot of character development. You see a lot of Henry’s (Hades) feelings and you learn more of what he had to go through with Persephone. For some reason I felt that Henry (Hades) or Kate or however makes his life such a sob story should stop because she, Persephone, was only one part of his life. I still love Henry it’s just… that can’t be the only thing that comes to mind when he thinks of his very long life filled with dark endeavors  Kate wasn’t as annoying as she was in the last book, although I hated how she kept hating on Persephone  I understand why Kate’s a little jealous but in the end shes your sister and you haven’t seen it from her point of view. I also felt that Kate was a bit needy because she just wants all of Henry’s attention despite the fast approaching war. I actually liked Persephone because although she may have been a little selfish all she wanted was to make her own choices in life and be happy being with a person she actually loves. I understood that because I think everyone deserves their own options and choices. I also liked her feeling about Henry (Hades) because she always loved him but not in the way that he wanted. She always loved him in a friendship/sibling kind of way. She actually tries to show him that she doesn’t love him, that the person he thought he loved is a person that’s not her, and that he’s actually in love with Kate. I really disliked Calliope (Hera) in this book because shes going against her brothers and sisters and all her family members for revenge on Walter (Zeus) for cheating on her, Kate for being the object of Henry(Hades) eyes, and Henry for not loving her. I, for some reason found that stupid because she already acted revenge on Zeus by always hating and torturing his children and she killed Kate, the only problem in that is that she came back to life. Ava (Aphrodite) was just plain weird this time around because she betrayed Kate when in reality she should be thanking Ava because Kate saved her ass like three times.

This book for me wasn’t that great but was better than the Goddess Test. I hated how there weren’t any sword fights! I read the Goddess Test and the Goddess Interrupted because I thought there was going to be some epic battle scenes and she was going to learn how to fight. But no one taught her how to fight and when all the council members go to the battle you don’t see them fight either, you just see them come back bloodied, bruised, and battered. What do they do on the battle field? seriously, what do they do? I still hate their names and with a passion, too. The council members names don’t match up to their godly names and that pisses me off because I can never remember who their talking about. I wish the author put her thought process in the back of the book so I would under stand why Ares name is Dylan and why everyone else’s name is messed up. Kate couldn’t mesmerized fourteen gods and goddesses, while I mesmerized them and WAY more when I was like ten, so I call that a massive fail. I loved Ingrid, she was a great side character and frankly my favorite character of them all.  She was the only thing that made this book make sense and she always knew what to say. The ending to me is a fail because it makes me think of Breaking Dawn and that just pisses me off.

Overall, this book was OK and didn’t rank high with me but was better than the first book. I hope that in the third and last book, The Goddess Inheritance, it won’t be creepy because of the twist ending in The Goddess Interrupted and that she can keep the offspring, Henry(Hades) and immortality. I also hope the author with put more parts with Ingrid in it and make the ending worth waiting for.
