Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
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.
Release Date 27th March 2012
A fantastic sequel to The Goddess Test. Kate has passed the test and is now Henry's Wife, after spending her summer with James she's excited to get back to Henry and officially become the Queen of the underworld and rule by Henry's side. But when her coronation is interrupted by Cronos, the king of the Titans and the only being capable of ending the world and the council, Henry has to leave her to try and stop him. Unfortunately Henry and the rest of the council end up needing saved by Kate, with help from James, Ava and Persephone.
I actually quite enjoyed finally meeting Persephone, the girl who broke Henry's heart and make him want to fade into death rather than take on another wife and Queen. Kate faces some trials and tribulations in this book and tries to come to terms with the knowledge that Henry will never love her the same as Persephone.
This book made me realise I'd quite like to read a story from Henry's point of view. Because I'm just as confused as Kate about Henry's feelings towards her and would like an answer. I was the same with the Morganville series and Rachel Caine wrote a short from Shanes POV and it cleared it all up for me.
Loved this book and can't wait to read more.
