Starcrossed Trilogy by Josephine Angelini

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—now it's getting harder. She's having nightmares of a desperate desert journey, visions of three women weeping tears of blood. And why is she possessed by the sudden, unstoppable urge to kill the handsome new boy in school, Lucas Delos?
A love written in the stars . . .
A feud started in ancient Greece . . .
A curse not even the gods can break.

So the book overview got my attention, but I really didn't know what direction the story was headed in. I was so extremely surprised & totally delighted by this book, I couldn't put it down. I READ IT IN JUST a lil over a day! Josie is an amazing storyteller. Her characters are so well developed & very easy to fall in love(or hate) with and its just so refreshing!
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.

Ok if someone would have told me that Dreamless was better than Starcrossed I would have lol'd em! Guess what....? EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST! Helen is so my Hero!!! As we go deeper into the story, we find out more drama, more lies, more characters to love & definitely MORE characters you'll love to hate! I cried several times in this book & I held my breathe ALOT! The only bad part about the book is the long wait for the final installment......NEXT YEAR!
