A spin-off from Josephine Angelini’s irresistible Starcrossed series. Mysterious demi-goddess Daphne meets the totally hot Ajax for the first time in sultry NYC. This is where it all begins.
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 first review of Starcrossed
Oh, wow, did I love these books!!! First we got Daphne, of the day of that she meet's Ajax for the first time, and then there was Starcrossed, where it was so freaking good, and I just absolutely loved it!!!! Because yeah, it was one of my most favourite books ever!
And yeah, while I wish that the short story could've been longer, and that we could've had a real interaction between Daphne and Ajax, and have them actually have a conversation but yeah, it was a great short story, and I really enjoyed it!!!
I loved rereading Starcrossed! Their first meeting, their reaction because of the furies, and all the times that they have to be pulled apart, until they save each other, that was just so epic, and wonderful, and then there was the start of the training, and how they really fell in love, and then they find out that they're cousins? That really sucked!
Expect that we know they aren't, and they just believe it because if they thought about it, for like, just a second, not the implications, but the fact itself, that they'd know that it wasn't right, because the math didn't add or subtract right!
So loved this book and short story, and I can't wait to reread more!
