Book Review | Starcrossed

Title: Starcrossed

Author: Josephine Angelini

My Review:

I have not read a young adult novel in years so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I recently picked up the international bestselling book Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. Surprisingly, I was hooked immediately and did not want to put this book down!

This riveting story is appealing to readers of all ages and I was drawn to the use of Greek mythology in the plot. The main character in Starcrossed is Helen Hamilton who knows that she is different and attempts to hide her gifts so that she is not noticed by others. When the dashingly handsome, Lucas Delos arrives as the new student at school, Helen discovers that she is a “Scion” (descendants of the Greek gods). Pitted against one another in an attempt to settle an ancient blood feud will Helen and Lucas be able to join together and overcome the Fates or will it start a new modern-day Trojan War……………?

This story has everything including romance, fantasy, adventure and drama. It is both haunting and I could almost envision the characters and storyline in my mind as I read it. The author has planned this as a trilogy and I eagerly await the next two books in the series. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini is one amazing book……a perfect summer read!
