Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.
Angelini brings an electrifying spin on Greek mythology where action, romance, and suspense fill the pages with delectable entertainment. I have a weakness for books involving star-crossed lovers. Well, this tantalizing read put a whole other spin on defying destiny when it comes to Helen's and Lucas's love.
When Helen's eyes locked with Lucas, I just knew it was going to be love at first sight. Wrong. I could have never guessed the turn of events that would lead these two to avoid each other with deadly passion. The tensions between these two were so delicious; I could only wonder how any fight could be so sexy.
STARCROSSED is wrapped up in heart-pounding action, loads of drama, and an unforgettable cast of characters. I loved the Greek elements in this book and how Angelini crafted it into a captivating modern day tale.
I know I'll be highly anticipating the next release in this series. As with some of my favorite series, STARCROSSED left me wanting more. I'm ready to jump back into Angelini's world. Just Delicious!
I'm just a girl with a crazy book obsession.
