Starcrossed Series

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini - Rated 4.4/5.0

Book 1: Starcrossed
Book 2: Dreamless
Book 3: Goddess

Helen, the Scion star of this God based series is a wonderfully written character. The book starts out with a new family moving to her small Nantucket island home that she immediately despises. She begins to discover her Demigod powers with the help of the Delos family, from being able to fly to her ability to create lightning with a single thought. Lucas is a character that the reader falls in love with as much as Helen does. Will these star crossed lovers find happiness and free will, or do the Fates hold their lives in the balance of an age old war between the Gods and their children? This series boasts historical accuracy, (as much accuracy as mythology allows) well thought plot lines, and deep characters with strong ties to each other that you can feel throughout the series. Josephine Angelini knows her Greek mythology and uses her knowledge to retell the story of Troy through a modern setting. Beautiful and haunting!
