When shy, awkward Helen Hamilton sees Lucas Delos for the first time she thinks two things: the first, that he is the most ridiculously beautiful boy she has seen in her life; the second, that she wants to kill him with her bare hands.
With an ancient curse making them loathe one another, Lucas and Helen have to keep their distance. But sometimes love is stronger than hate, and not even the gods themselves can prevent what will happen. The first book in Josephine Angelini's thrilling series, Starcrossed is a passionate love story that began thousands of years ago in a world of gods and mortals.
This book was interesting and I even learnt a bit about Greek myths. I love how when we first meet Lucas all Helen wants to do is kill him which I found really funny. There are quite a few comments in this book that I absolutely loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Starcrossed is one of those books where you just have to keep reading it as soon as you pick it up, even when it's four o'clock in the morning and Star-crossed is a novel which looks strongly into the beliefs of Greek Mythology.
