"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m featuring Aimee Carter’s upcoming release of the second novel in the: Goddess Interrupted.
Author: Aimee Carter
Release Date: March 27, 2012
Description: Kate Winters has won immortality.
But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, she’ll have to fight for it.
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.
Why I’m excited: I absolutely loved Goddess Test, the first book in this series. I love mythology stories, and this deals with the Persephone/Hades story. It’s not really a retelling of the mythological story, it’s more like Kate and Henry’s lives are loosely based on the Persephone/Hades story, almost like the next generation, but with no actual relation to the original. I have been anticipating this book since I closed Goddess Test. These are quick reads, I think I finished the first book in about 3 days because I was so sucked in. Anyway, I’m super excited for this AND it counts toward the Sophomore Reading Challenge I plan to participate in. (2012 is the challenge year for me).
Preorder Goddess Interrupted from Amazon (Paperback) or Barnes & Noble (Paperback) or The Book Depository (Paperback)
What are you looking forward to this week?
