Goddess Interrupted

Goddess Interrupted
by Aimée Carter

Exactly six months after leaving her new husband for Greece, doing so only because that is the deal that had been struck with Persephone hundreds of years before, Kate is finally back.  She's ready to be a wife and she's ready to be Queen of the Underworld.

But just as she's about to make her final vow and take on her new duties, her world is attacked by Cronus, King of the Titans.  When her husband (Hades), along with Walter (Zeus) and Phillip (Poseidon) are kidnapped, it's up to Kate, Ava (Aphrodite), and James (Hermes) to seek out the one person who can lead them to Cronus's prison... Persephone.

How is she to find her husband when she is forced to work with the woman who stole his heart and broke it so long ago?

Final thoughts:  The first book was better.  This book was a broken record of "I LOVE Henry, but he doesn't seem to love me!!" followed by everyone else saying "Yes, he does!" then "You're right! He does!... No, wait!  He doesn't."  Kate threatens to leave often while also promising to never go if Henry would just say the magic words (or something like that).  It's a giant pity party for Kate.  It's frustrating because she's suddenly become very whiny.  I just wanted to reach through the book and shake her a few times. The pacing is also awkward and strange.  There are long section where we just read Kate whining, then something HUGE happens, and then we're back to whining, with little explanation of that huge thing.
I'll read the third book, if only because of the cliff-hanger.

Rating: 3/5
