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.
In Josephine Angelini’s compelling conclusion to the masterfully woven Starcrossed trilogy, a goddess must rise above it all to change a destiny that’s been written in the stars. With worlds built just as fast as they crumble, love and war collide in an all-out battle that will leave no question unanswered and no heart untouched.
Alas, the Starcrossed Trilogy is coming to an end. Starcrossed and Dreamless took readers through a whirlwind of emotions and gave readers insight into the alluring world of Greek Mythology. If you enjoyed the insanity of the first two books, then be prepared to be blown away when you get your hands on Goddess.
Goddess takes us deep into the heart of the mythological world. Angelini is able to capture the essence of the story of Troy from all aspects. In Goddess, Helen has flashbacks from the real Helen of Troy’s eyes. Readers are able to understand the choices Helen must make – no matter how much we don’t like them. Our eyes open to all of the people of Troy – Lucas, Cassandra, Orion, Achilles, Aphrodite, Ariadne, Hector…oh, Hector. Goddess will take you through a storm of emotions. Helen has the weight of the world on her shoulders, and the only way to win is to defeat the gods. The war is starting, but can she defeat the gods or is history deemed to repeat itself?
Over the course of the Starcrossed Trilogy, Helen has gone through hell and back. Literally. She has found out that she is a demigod, she found her true love, only to have him ripped away from her, she has been dragged to and from the underworld repeatedly. There’s no end to what Helen has gone through. She must make the toughest decision of all in Goddess, or risk shattering everything – including her heart.
In Goddess, Helen makes a huge transformation and readers get to see who she was always meant to be. She becomes stronger, smarter, and more defiant than ever. And she has to, because she’s the key to changing everything. As the cover says, “She must fight, or they will fall.”
Josephine Angelini did an outstanding job in the end to this electrifying trilogy. As always, her writing was magical. Readers can easily escape in her books for hours and not realize the time going by. It is often difficult to end a series, but the way Angelini ended it was like a new beginning. So, WovenMyst would like to thank Josephine Angelini for this compelling mythological series that has stolen hearts around the world. Goddess will hit shelves May 28, so don’t forget to grab your copy!
We would like to thank HarperTeen for providing us with an ARC of Goddess for review.
