Starcrossed - Josephine Angelini (2011)

I really like this book. It had a massive cliff-hanger, with so many unanswered questions and now I have to wait for the sequel. Props to Angelini for branching out and not utilising werewolves, vampires or even the nephilim but demigods - that being the descendants of Greek gods. It was really hard to put this book down, so it was devoured pretty quickly.


  1. I loved the characters. They were so diverse. The combinations of their actions and personalities wove the the story together flawlessly. I loved how the relationships were so real. They weren't like instant, they took time like they would in real life. Helen and Lucas' relationship progressed nicely. They had amazing chemistry even in the beginning when they weren't so fond of each other. Helen is a breath of fresh air and so likable. She was a strong heroine. If life gave her lemons, she made lemonade! Lucas is intelligent and super cute. He is also the love interest of this story!

    I liked how the Greek mythology was so twisted. It took it to a whole new level. It was so Percy Jackson but not Percy Jackson at the same time. I liked how they all had special talents. One thing I found odd was Atlantis. It just seemed weird to be in this story to me. I loved learning about Helen's powers and heritage right along with her.

  2. Your comment is longer than my post!
    And yes, I totally agree - the inclusion and manipulation of Greek mythology was great.
