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.
Aimée Carter, how cruel can you be to leave us with that kind of Cliffhanger! I’m DYING to know what will happen next to Henry and Kate now.
Okay, so for those of you that don’t know what this series is about, we could describe it as an adaptation of the Greek myths. Why adaptation? Because it isn’t true to the original characterization of the gods, which is fine by me. If you want to take something and make it your own, you’ll have to change so part of it right?
Now, in this sequel, Kate and Henry face new threats now that they are married. Some are external (like Calliope looking for revenge against Kate and the other gods) and some are internal (like Kate never ending questioning of Henry’s love and Henry’s tendency not to really show her he really cares…) Seriously, their biggest enemy has to be them when it comes to having a healthy relationship (or as healthy as it can be.) A new character also makes an apparition in this novel, Persephone. Well, new is relative, as we spoke of her in The Goddess Test. We simply didn’t see her.
In Interrupted, my biggest character crush was on Ava. I really liked her, and how she was there for Kate. The one character I really wanted to punch was Walter, because we wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for him. Zeus, seriously, can you be less of an ass with YOUR WIFE!! I felt bad for Calliope, but it still doesn’t make up for what she did all those years (after all, she killed so many girls that were facing the test….)
Aimée Carter did it gain, in my humble opinion. She wrote a book that was addicting and captivating, a novel I couldn’t put down until I had read the last pages. She finally gave of more of the relationship between Kate and Henry, something I was really craving for after book number one. Still, the only thing that could make everything better would be to get book three now. Right this second. No?
