Book: Goddess Interrupted
Author: Aimee Carter
After surrendering her mortal life, Kate's about to be crowned queen of the mythical Underworld, home to the Gods. Her king - dangerous, mesmerising Henry - the boy she sacrificed everything for, is becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then he is abducted in the midst of her coronation. Forced to take up her role in a bitter war between the Gods, Kate battles to save Henry's life. Worse, her only hope of victory means turning to Persephone, Henry's first true love...and the greatest threat to Kate's future. Kate now knows that rescuing the one she believed to be her destined soulmate could mean losing him forever. 'A fresh take on the Greek myths adds sparkle to this romantic fable.' Cassandra Clare on The Goddess Test
I can honestly say this was brilliant, and beat it's predecessor by miles. I loved the Goddess test and I didn't realise this series could get any better until I read this book! Boy, carter is good.
The Book was pretty easy to pick up, because although it didn't start right from the point that the last book left off, it was very easy to understand! The plot was very good, and extremely unique, giving you twists and turn where you would never expect, and made you see the greek gods in a whole new perspective! I love greek mythology and this didn't fail to give.
The writing was beautiful as Carter's always is. So descriptive and whimsical, and such deep emotions that you felt them yourselves. Even the way she built up the characters so you you see them in your mind and connect with them and get another and better understanding of them.
That was another thing. We learnt a lot more about the characters and got to know them and their personalities better. We even get introduced to some new characters and some crazy secrets about the characters, but in this novel the characters true colours were definitely shown.
Tis book was a merely of gorgeous myths, articulated in the most whimsical fashion and I adored it!
