Synopsis

How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

I absolutely positively loved this book. It was amazing! This is something different from the normal paranormal romance books & it was a non-stop addictive read. Helen is an extraordinary teenager. Her mother left when she was a baby & her father raised her. She is special & doesn't know why or what her abilities include. All her life she hasn't known why she was different until a family moved to her island. They were all extremely beautiful & everybody was drawn to them. When Helen first saw Lucas at school, her first instinct was to attack & kill him. In her attempt the whole school was flabbergasted & couldn't understand why Helen would want to kill somebody she hadn't even met. This was built into her genes & she didn't understand why she was so angry with him. Lucas & Helen are drawn to each other, they can't be apart, but they can't be together. They have explained that Helen is a demigod & that's why she has wanted to kill Lucas, because his family are as well. They are from different families & that causes an instinct to kill one another. Somebody is trying to kidnap Helen. Lucas is trying to find the culprit & protect Helen in the process. Helen started training with Lucas & his family to build her strength & find all her abilities. While in the process, Helen ends up confiding in her best friend since birth Claire. Claire is not surprised & knew Helen was special. Ever since they were children Claire was testing Helen to see if she could be hurt. Helen was surprised, but relieved. Helen's love for Lucas grew stronger, but they cannot be together because of their families. The kidnapper is found & another is attempting to kidnap her as well. They are discovered & defeated. What will happen to Helen & Lucas & their love for each other? We will have to wait for Dreamless. This book was fantastic & highly recommended to everyone. I rated it a 5stars.

I really enjoyed this, it was a new twist on the Greek gods and all the demo gods inbetween. And it was very well written and didn't destroy all the mythology that we all we all know and love. a brilliant YA novel that anyone can enjoy.

It's a novel take on the classic Greek love story. The entire novel sticks to old Greek literature but with enough imagination so that it feels like a modern tale. It's a really engaging series and the main characters really endeared themselves to me.

A brilliant work of fantasy and mythology, all wrapped up with a modern twist. Helen is the ideal reluctant heroine, and Lucas compliments her perfectly. The ride never stops!
