3.0 out of 5 stars Short and simple novella March 22, 2012
By Merin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After the events of The Goddess Test, Kate is on her six-month sabbatical from the Underworld, and has decided to vacation in Greece with her best friend James (aka Hermes). However, James drops her smack dab in the middle of a millennia-old feud between Castor and Pollux, the Gemini twins, and the gods of the council, which occurred when Pollux broke Castor out of the Underworld. Kate is a lot more sympathetic to the twins, and decides that she must help them remain together, even though it goes against the ruling of the gods (particularly Hades and Zeus).

Let me first say that I didn't think The Goddess Test was that great of a book. Being a huge fan of the myth of Hades and Persephone - I used the tale as my first telling in my Storytelling class - I had major issues with the way the mythology was used, and the "tasks" (for lack of a better word) that Kate had to accomplish in order to become Henry's wife. Some of these same issues are alive and well in The Goddess Hunt, and will most likely be present for the remainder of the series. However, I liked this novella well enough, especially the chapters from Henry's point of view, that I'm going to rate it exactly as I did The Goddess Test. There were some definite things I didn't like - again, with the inconsistency of her mythology - but I will say that Kate was pretty awesome in standing up to Walter. She's got a definite backbone, even if I can't always stand her decision-making.

Also, just a note: this isn't a stand alone story. If you haven't read The Goddess Test this won't make much sense. Just an fyi!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Bridge Between Book 1 and 2 March 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novella tells about Kate's six-month sabbatical. After passing the tests and becoming immortal in The Goddess Test, she marries Henry who is Hades the god of the Underworld. But she must spend six months away from him on Earth. She travels with James (Hermes) to Greece. James is her good friend but Henry's rival both for his position as god of the Underworld and for Kate's love.

While in Greece, James engineers a meeting with Castor and Pollux. They have been on the run from both Walter (Zeus) and Henry for many years. The brothers - one mortal and one immortal - had been separated by a bargain with Walter. But Pollux broke Castor out of the Underworld causing Henry to try to hunt him down.

Kate gets dropped right in the middle of the problem and gets some of the rose rubbed off her rose-colored glasses. She had thought that the gods were all good and now she learns that they have their faults too. Walter won't change his decision because of his pride. Henry has an over developed desire to follow the rules.

The story is told from both Kate's and Henry's points of view. Along the way we see how Henry feels about Kate and we learn about Kate's insecurities in regard to her future with Henry. This was a nice bridge between The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad October 22, 2012
By bcw518
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good series, and it's nice to see teen books that include Greek mythology, as it's always been an interest of mine. This novella wasn't much, but it was an interesting diversion for Kate's first summer away from the Underworld. I thought it was definitely worth the money I paid for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Henry's POV!! April 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kate's vacation in Greece starts off with a hike through a forest in which she and James quickly become lost. Or, are they? James seems to have had his own agenda for the vacation. In the forest they meet Castor and Pollux, the Gemini twins, who have been on the run from the council of gods for millennia. Apparently Kate and James's presence there has attracted too much attention, and soon enough Castor is captured and returned to the Underworld. Typical of Kate, she takes compassion on the brothers and is dead set on lifting their curse. Now all she has to do is change Zeus's mind, and hope that Henry finds it in himself to forgive the twins for escaping the Underworld.

Up until now, Kate has only seen the "good" side of the gods, but now she sees they have a tendency to hold old grudges, taking them way to personal. As a newly appointed immortal, she brings a new set of eyes and ideas, like compassion and forgiveness. I love that she is brave enough to go head to head against Walter/Zeus. And she does it with sass and determination! But Kate also begins to question if she made the right decision in joining the gods. She wonders if she will be forever at odds with the council's decisions and choices. If she will have to watch from the sidelines as lives are destroyed for the sake of the council's rules.

I like that this short story was told in alternating chapters between Kate and Henry. I think that if I'd read this before the second book, I wouldn't have panicked as much by Henry's seemingly indifference towards Kate. Here, he's clearly very much in love with her, and though it pains him to see her with James, he trusts her. I so wanted Kate to catch a glimpse of him! Just a tiny peek!

4.0 out of 5 stars We are in Henry's Head!! So WORTH IT! March 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Goddess Interrupted so I did read these out of order. I read 1 then 2 then came back to this 1.5. Still worth it! Its a short read and there is really no romance (sorry I cling to any romance I can between Henry and Kate) But we get inside Henrys head, and well that is totally worth it. I wish we could be in his head more but what I got was good enough.

We see what happened on Kates first week on her time off. It was neat meeting some new characters and seeing what they went through. I loved seeing her stand up to a member of the council and her get to see the other side of things. But most importantly I loved seeing Henry. I liked seeing how he really thinks of things. Since I read them out of order it was nice after the heartache in the 2nd book to just know a few certain things. I can't tell you just in case you have not read it yet.

So if you are looking for a fix between books then you should definitely read this!! Plus like I keep saying we get inside Henry's head, that should see you right there. Also for anyone who has not read this series, please go now and buy book 1 The Goddess Test!!
