The Goddess Inturrupted

”The Goddess Interrupted is the second installment in the ‘Goddess Test’ series. I loved the first book in this series- ”The Goddess Test” and really loved the unique concept and twist in Greek myths. This book was bit slow going compared to the first book but I still  enjoyed reading.

Kate is back with her Husband Henry but he seems very distant. She believes that he is still in love with his first wife Persephone who left him for a mortal. Kate is immortal now but there is some greater power which can snuff her out along with the other gods whom she thought were untouchable. Cronus is back for his revenge and an insider helped him to escape. As everyone is fighting a lost battle with Cronus it is up to Kate to find a way to help her husband and other Gods. But for that she has to seek out someone’s help whom she never dreamed or wished of meeting, Henry’s first wife.

My rating: 3 out of 5. Other than the fact that it was slow moving, I like the story. I recommend this series to those who love reading stories about Greek Myths.

The Goddess Hunt The Goddess Hunt is a novella followed by the first book in the Goddess test series. I am not a big fan of short stories or novellas but I wanted to read and see which character of Greek myth is involved in the story. What is it with all the “1.5” books? Is it a requirement now for series? Seriously sometimes I am bored to trilogy and big series. But now that I have already started this series there is no turning back!

Kate is free to stay away from her new husband Hades and his underworld for 6 months so she plans a vacation to Greece. But soon she is involved with mythical gods and their issues. Castor and Pollux have been on the run from Zeus and Hades’ wrath for centuries, hiding from the gods who hunt them. Some how Kate gets involved with them, it is hard for them to trust her as she is Underworld queen now but she wants to help them. When everyone gets involved she gets into bad side of the immortal world.

My rating: 3 out of 5. I liked how the story was told by Hades perspective as well, I would like to read a complete book written from his view point.

The goddess testThe Goddess Test by Aimee Carter is the first book in Goddess Test series. I love reading stories related to Greek Mythology and I have this burning passion to know more. So obviously when I came to know about this book’s concept I just wanted to read it. Greek Mythology has some of most entertaining, delightful and sinful stories. 

This book is about a test, Kate is the chosen one for this test. She had made a deal with dark and handsome Henry who claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld. Kate is not really in a mood for this game because her mother is sick and soon will be dying. But when Henry brings her friend back from death and agrees to keep her mother alive till she is ready to say her goodbye she agrees for this bargain. Now she is stuck in a big palace training for her big test. But soon she realizes that there is no way to go back if she fails, because every girl who had taken the test has died. 

It is a interesting read, I finished this book in a day. But some parts are poorly written but  I enjoyed reading this modern tale of Greek gods. I never read much about Hades because he is always considered as terrifying one with no mercy. But this story gives completely different opinion about his character. My rating: 3 out of 5.
