I've been highly anticipating Goddess Interrupted ever since I finished the first book in the series last year! Aimee Carter took me away to a world rich with Greek mythology, but one that still held one foot strongly in the mortal world. This time I knew that I'd be able to dive deeper into the characters, their lives, and the unique problems that they faced as gods and goddesses. I couldn't wait! As soon as this book arrived, I had to devour it.

When I first met Kate last year in The Goddess Test, I fell in love with her bold and brave attitude. Even though she started out as a bit tough to love, she soon transformed into a character that I could really get behind. That's why it was so hard for me when I started reading Goddess Interrupted and realized that the same old Kate was back. Tough to love, thoughts that bordered on depressing. The only reason I was able to cope with it better this time is because Aimee Carter does give Kate a mind of her own. Kate knows she's being that way, she tries to battle it, she just doesn't always win.

That's not to say that Kate's attitude isn't warranted. I'll warn you that Carter's characters face their fair share of issues in this story. From waking Titans, to old love affairs, there is a lot that is laid bare in this installment. I had a great time getting to know more about the cast of characters and how they were all linked. Kate and Henry's relationship didn't steal the show, but instead contrasted nicely to the feelings of war that were floating around the palace. So yes, Kate did have a reason to feel so down. I'll give her that.

What really saved the day for me was the ending. Once again Kate proved herself to be a stubborn and fiery character. I won't spoil, but let's just say that this is a cliffhanger that will make your mouth drop open! Upon reading the last page I was speechless. Despite any qualms I may have had while reading, the ending is more than enough to keep me reading on in this series. Bring on more Kate and more Henry. I'll be here to read it.

This was the book that made me decide I liked the first one. I’ll get to the reviewing so you may know why.

Point 1: You know, there’s this thing that I never once noticed before joining goodreads. It’s called the second-book-break-up-syndrome. And I NEVER ONCE NOTICED IT BEFORE JOINING GOODREADS.
Thank you for ruining second books for me, goodreads.
I’m sorry. You all know I love goodreads, but I was perfectly fine before knowing about or noticing the second book break up syndrome. Before it was just series, book 2, break up, annoyance. Series, book 2, break up, annoyance. Now it’s all connected and I know it it’s even MORE annoying.
What I’m trying to say is, yes, there is some second-book-break-up-syndrome going on in this book.
Urg.

Point 2: despite the aforementioned second-book-break-up-syndrome, it was in this book I truly fell in love Henry. No, I was not in love with him at the end of book 1. I liked him, I was emotionally attached to and invested in him, but not in love with him.
Now I am. :)

Point 3: I was sad because James became a kind of non-character. We didn’t see him much, and when we did see him, I felt like he wasn’t there, doing or contributing anything to the story. :(

Point 4: If you don’t like love triangles, good for you, cuz this book doesn’t have one. It has a love something, but whatever it is, it’s not a triangle. It’s not a square either. It’s kind of, I don’t know, maybe a web? Anyone, it’s like everyone is connected to everyone else in this giant web of unrequited love. It was almost, kind of, really depressing.

Point 5: Cliffhanger!!!

Let it be said that THE GODDESS INHERITANCE is now on my list of books I am anxiously awaiting, and hoping the world doesn’t end before next year when they all come out.

I was really hoping I would like this one more than the first book but I didn’t. The characters still haven’t grown on me. I don’t care about any of them and I really don’t like Henry. The best word to describe him is blah.

However I did enjoy the plot. even though I didn’t like the characters, I never once thought about putting the book down and starting something else.

I will probably get the third book, The Goddess Inheritance, but I wont run out and buy it the day it comes out. It’s worth continuing but it wont be taking priority. ( )

really a 3.5

Okay, so the only real problem I have is that she's a 17 year old who is marrying a guy XXXX times her age.. let's but it this way, HE remembers what it was like BEFORE humans were on the planet. Being in her spot I would be pissed at everyone for the reason I was born.. literally the ONLY REASON she exists- but that's just me.. still gonna read the next one though... ;] ( )
