From Goodreads:

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.

The premise of this series intrigued me. I jumped at the chance to review this book in The Goddess Test series.  After reading The Goddess Interrupted I cannot wait for the next installment of Greek mythology brought in to modern times with a twist. 

In my opinion, this book was so unpredictable, which I think is a great thing. Not only is a great example of a love story but also love lost. As far as the action in this book, it was jam-packed with fear, fighting, love and triumph. Kate, the newest member to the Gods is head strong, some would say stubborn. She felt rejected but kept pushing for the man she loves and for their future never giving up. I could sense her feelings and could put myself in her shoes as well as many of the other characters. This series is a must read for anyone and any age looking for a love story with excitement or if you prefer excitement with a love story. A perfect balance of fables and fiction.
