What a perfect ending to this series. Once the story gets started its just full of action. Josephine really packs in a whole lot for the final conclusion. I loved it! I don't want to give too much away but if you have read the other two books you must read this. Even if you are like me and didn't love Dreamless. Goddess totally made up for that.

 Love Triangle:
I LOVED Starcrossed and well I liked Dreamless but I was pretty upset with the whole love triangle angle. I am just so sick of those. I am really glad that in Goddess we weren't strung along for it. But I will admit I did cheat and peak at the ending because if Helen didn't end up with the guy I loved, I was going to walk away. I am so in love with the one character that I couldn't be okay if they didn't end up together, or if Helen had hurt him too much. I hardly ever peak at the ending but I really had to know. Anyways Goddess was an amazing read, especially after I knew it was going to end well for me.

Helen's Mom:
I hate hate hate her. I am glad at how things ended up with her and even though Helen hopes she has a happily ever after, I really hope that she doesn't. She was a scheming horrible person and that is all I will say about her.

Side Characters:
I loved Hector! He is one of my favorites. He is strong and noble and awesome. There was part in the book with him that I was in tears. The others like Cassandra, Jason and all them where awesome too. I must say though that Claire, Matt and Ari really upset me in this. I know Helen is forgiving but not me. They really made me mad.

The Starcrossed series started with a bang and ended with  a bang. I am so glad I picked this series up. I am really going to miss the characters but I feel like it had a great ending. If you love starcrossed lovers and Greek mythology then you are totally going to want to pick up this series.

  2. Ooh nice review! It feels like forever since I last read Dreamless as an ARC and since I didn't get one of this, it really feels like forever! Of course now you have me dying to know how the love triangle is going to be resolved. I almost have the feeling that I won't be happy with it. I don't know for sure, but it's just a feeling. Of course I need to be reaquainted with the story and characters! Although I always forbid myself from looking ahead, I just can't in good sense do that anymore! Great review, cannot wait to read this one!

    1. I had to look ahead. I just had to do it. I hardly ever will but I had to.
