From the cover:
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.
I didn’t really love the Titan story arc in this series. It felt kind of like a cop-out. Why couldn’t there be other problems for Kate and the other gods to deal with, rather than some ancient-as-time supposedly unbeatable pre-god god? It was just way too implausible and, to be honest, kind of annoying.
Other than that, though, the book was fine. I liked the interaction between Kate and Persephone, even though I didn’t really love Persephone as a character. I don’t know. I just felt kind of mediocre about Goddess Interrupted in general. If it wasn’t necessary to read this book to finish off the series, I’d tell you to skip it.
