Starcrossed / Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
OVERALL: 4 stars
Starcrossed (Starcrossed #1) - 4 stars
Helen isn't a normal high school girl, she is a demigod. She doesn't realize this until the Delos family arrives in Nantucket and changes her life for ever. Now there is a centuries old family feud and a star crossed relationship with Lucas to deal with. Making it through that year of high school isn't going to be as easy as she was hoping.
This book was a fantastic take of Greek mythology! The characters were amazing Nd well rounded. Helen did get a little whiny at times but I have found that the main heroine sometimes has a right to whine every now And then. Lucas was a teenage heartthrob and up for the tantalizing hero challenge. Overall I would recommend this book to people that have a fascination with Greek mythology and would like a different take on the tales.
Dreamless (Starcrossed #2) - 4 stars
As the battle continues Helen has to face the underworld over and over again to find a cure to the furies. With hector out of the family and everything trying to separate Helen and Lucas from being together Helen finds support when Orion meets her in the underworld to help her.
This is a wonderful continuation to the first book. Helen is still a little whiny but I got over in while I was wrapped up in the story. I like how this one involved Claire and Matt a lot more and I love all of the developing relationships. Can't wait to read the next book in the series!
