Review by Amber I

From Goodreads
How do you defy destiny?
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.

My Thoughts

Wow, what a fantastic book this was. I loved every minute of it. It had my interest from the first page and kept me intrigued til the last!! I could not put it down!! I found myself trying to sneak time to read it as often as I could.

I loved the romance story in it. When we finally see the boy Helen falls for, her first reaction is to kill him.  It was weaved into the story so easily. It wasn't love at first site or they didn't get all over in love within a few pages and drive me crazy.

This book has been on my brain ever since I started it. I keep going over it in my head. It was just awesomesauce!! Trust me when I tell you are for sure going to want to read this book! And soon! It is going to be very hard waiting for the next one.

  2. Wonderful review! I think I'll be reading this! :)

  3. Your reviews always catch my eye and this book looks interesting so I might be inclined to give it a chance.

  4. I have a little crush on this book myself. I have got to get a bound copy of it because I know I will be re-reading it! Hate that I will have to wait until next year to read the next book too!
    Truly Bookish

  6. thanks everyone. I just loved it. I honestly was trying to read it every chance I had. I bribed the kids with ice cream so I could get some more reading It was just a great read.

  7. YAY for Starcrossed! I've read this book too and I LOVED it! Just like you, I enjoyed every minute of it and it remained stuck to my head long after I've finished it! It's so complex and the characters are totally likeable and its whole idea was fantabulous! I need to re-read it before writing my review, but I could go on and on forever! It's a great read!<3
