Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

ISBN: 9780330529730
Publisher: Macmillan
Pages: 514

Destiny brought them together. The gods will keep them apart.

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is--now it's getting harder. She's having nightmares of a desperate desert journey, visions of three women weeping tears of blood. And why is she possessed by the sudden, unstoppable urge to kill the handsome new boy in school, Lucas Delos?

A love written in the stars . . .

A feud started in ancient Greece . . .

A curse not even the gods can break.

I really enjoyed reading Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini! I loved the Greek Mythology, especially the “Houses” and the Furies! My favourite characters were Helen and Cassandra. Despite Helen’s mysterious, (and possibly dangerous) heritage Cassandra welcomes her into the Delos family as she knows what it is to be hunted and feared. As due to Cassandra’s status as an Oracle, her power to see the future as well as, communicate with (and sometimes for) the Fates is highly desirable as a weapon against other Scions. I really like the cover of Starcrossed as throughout the book it is inkeeping with the story whilst also having multiple messages or meanings.
