WOOHOO! I simply adored this book. Not only was it addicting, but it had non-stop action! Starcrossed is one of those book that has you addicted even before you get more into the story. It’s like, your mind just knows that this book is going to be good. So you keep reading until you hit the last page. And then be upset and mad cause your adventure is now over and you must wait!
The plot in this book is mind blowing. Let me the first to tell you sometimes fate sucks. In this book, fate just does not let them be. Lucas and Helen from the start are fighting against fate. I admit that I liked them fighting. It gave you more tension between the characters. You felt their love grown with each growing frustration.
The characters were a whole another set of story. Each characters had such a unique identity. They all had their flaws. I like how each of them played a role in Lucas and Helen’s life’s. They all stuck by each other as a family and did what they thought was best. Now some may think that some decisions were wrong, and I thought so too. But in the end, I knew they did it out of the kindness of their own heart. They were only looking out for each other.
The modern day use of Greek mythology totally rocked. I have seen books pop up everywhere with this plot line and I adore every single one. Ms. Angelini took Greek mythology and added a great new twist to the story. She kept the power of the Gods and Goddesses, just added a great heart-breaking love story and lots of action. Ms. Angelini created a amazing world that any reader can dive into. I can’t wait to read the next book!
