We were pretty bowled over when The Goddess Test, author Aimée Carter‘s debut novel, was first released. The captivating story pulled many of its main threads from the ancient Greek myth of Persephone and Hades, but recast the story in a modern high school setting: when Kate, grappling with her mother’s impending death, meets the brooding Henry at school, she never imagines that he could be the King of the Underworld–or that, in marrying him, she could save her mother’s life.
Now, the release of a tantalizing clip from the book trailer for Goddess Interrupted has us quivering with anticipation once again. As the sequel to The Goddess Test, the story of Kate and Henry only gets darker. Kate is on the threshold of being crowned the Queen of the Underworld, but sinister work is afoot . . . and Henry’s life is at risk.
Goddess Interrupted will be released on March 27, and the full trailer is slated to be released on March 21 (you’ll be able to find it on the Goddess Interrupted app on Facebook). We’re happy for this holdover in the meantime!
