Book 2 (Book 1: Starcrossed)
Can true love be forgotten? As the only scion who can descend into the Underworld, Helen Hamilton has been given a nearly impossible task. By night she wanders through Hades, trying to stop the endless cycle of revenge that has cursed her family. By day she struggles to overcome the fatigue that is rapidly eroding her sanity. Without Lucas by her side, Helen is not sure she has the strength to go on. Just as Helen is pushed to her breaking point, a mysterious new Scion comes to her rescue. Funny and brave, Orion shields her from the dangers of the Underworld. But time is running out a ruthless foe plots against them, and the Furies’ cry for blood is growing louder. As the ancient Greek world collides with the mortal one, Helen’s sheltered life on Nantucket descends into chaos. But the hardest task of all will be forgetting Lucas Delos.
I read this book awhile ago so this will be short. I absolutely love this series. As a huge Greek/Roman mythology fan I love how intricate this book is with mythology. The trilogy is primarily based on Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey and Virgil’s Aeneid. I feel really sorry for Helen and I feel sorry for her and Lucas. I really dislike Helen’s mother for the lie she told in the previous book. Also, I really miss Hector and wish he was in the book more. Orion is a good replacement and he is equally enjoyable to follow. The book leaves readers with lots of promise for exciting things to come. Especially with its’ climatic ending.
The next book in the trilogy will be out some time in the future.
