This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't read the first book, The Goddess Test.

Goddess Interrupted is an electrifying and shocking sequel that left me with my mouth hanging open and begging for more. Not only did Carter manage to create a sequel that was better than the first book (which was already superb), she passed it by many miles. So epic!

Though I don't study on the actual mythology, I love reading YA Greek mythology re-tellings! And the Goddess series is one of my most favorite mythology series ever. The characters are wonderful, and the plot is always fast-paced and fantastic. I can't even believe that Aimee Carter made me fall more in love with Kate and the entire ensemble in this sequel than the first! I was pulled right back into the story immediately, and I was shocked and surprised by the loads of twists and turns that Goddess Interrupted takes. Loved it!

The characters are what makes this series whole. Kate was pretty naïve in the first book, but now, she's strong and tough, and she has grown a backbone and isn't afraid to take up for herself. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that our protagonist transitioned from naïve to fierce all within a sequel. I'm so thrilled! And she wasn't the only great character: while we don't see a whole lot of Henry in Goddess Interrupted, what parts he's in are superb. I even like him even more than I did in The Goddess Test! And Ava, James, everybody was good! PLUS, there's a new character (no spoilers) that made the book even more awesome.

And that ending! Woah! Another great part about this series is that Carter doesn't hold back with the bad guys being absolutely wicked. Based off the ending, I can't wait to see how the series concludes in The Goddess Inheritance - the ending to this second book was so fast-paced, climatic, and thrilling, I couldn't put it down!

Overall, Goddess Interrupted is a great installment to a fantastic series. A pulsing and marvelous sequel!
