Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention.
Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?
this book was... wow... soooooo amasing!!! im a HUGE percy jackson fan and i thought that the lack of info Josephine was giving the reader bout greek myths would make me annoyed and it did for a start but wow... their love is touchy, in a way that makes me curse all those normal boys out there hehe, but not only the love story was what catched my eye, but the characters, they were so amazingly described not to cry out loud. the reason im going to give this book a 4,5/5 is because the Delos family was far too much alike the Cullen family, and becuse something ese i can not tell you, because tha would be spoiling ;)
