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.


MARISSA'S REVIEW:
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Goddess Interrupted, just as much as I did The Goddess Test.  We return to the story at the tale end of Kate and James' summer in Greece.  Kate is nervous to say the least, about seeing Henry after 6 months of absence - especially when she heard and saw nothing of him the whole time. Add in the little seed of doubt that James has planted regarding the choices Kate can make about her future in the Underworld and where Henry's true love lies - and we have ourselves an intriguing story.

Kate grew in two contradicting directions in this book.  On one hand we have the strong willed woman prepared to battle to save her new family and the man she loved.....and then we have a Kate that is weakened in spirit by her love of Henry and her uncertainty of his feelings for her.  The poor girl is a roller coaster of emotion.

I found Henry to be too void of outward emotion during this book.  I was just about ready to scream and tell Kate to hell with Henry, choose James!!  I had to keep reminding myself that Henry had been through far too much with Persephone to truly outwardly project his love and feelings for Kate. But like Kate, I needed something concrete to prove it!  And after a test of his own with Persephone....I felt my heart break in two for Kate. 

Now Calliope is a true evil lead! She's utterly obsessed with Henry still and after escaping her punishment embarks on releasing the mighty Cronus from his cell so he may wreak havoc on the world and destroy all at his pleasure. Kate must and will do what-ever is needed to bring down Cronus and Calliope.  But of course the ending.....is a monster cliff-hanger that will have you hitting your book against the table in frustration of knowing that you must wait another year to find out what happens!!!


ENJOY!
