Synopsis
(Goodreads)



After accidentally unleashing the gods from their captivity on Olympus, Helen must find a way to re-imprison them without starting a devastating war. But the gods are angry, and their thirst for blood already has a body count.

To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a diabolical Tyrant is lurking among them, which drives a wedge between the once-solid group of friends. As the gods use the Scions against one another, Lucas’s life hangs in the balance. Still unsure whether she loves him or Orion, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, for war is coming to her shores.




                                                     


This is yet another series that I need to start!
Since I love Greek mythology,
any book based on it is
definitely going to be appealing to me!
From what I've read and heard
of the Starcrossed trilogy,
it's a riveting, fascinating one,
so I need to get books 2 and 3, since
I do own the first one.
Another thing I love about these books
is their covers, especially
for the first and third books!

  1. I love the idea of taking the old Greek myths and basing modern novels upon them. I believe that this series also takes place in our times which is another interesting twist.
