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.
|It was kind of a pain to get through. I liked that the base of the story was about Greek mythology but that wasn’t enough to keep me completely invested. I couldn’t stand the main character, Helen. She completely annoyed me! She was so pathetic and all she did was whine. She was completely selfish, she refused to train even though she could help out people who were risking their lives for her. The only thing she cared about was trying to get Lucas to sleep with her. My other issue was the writing. It wasn’t fluid and it was just so choppy. Especially when she switched POV on the drop of a dime. It started off strong but towards the end, it kind of fell flat. I’ve read the blurb for the next installment and might check it out to see how it is.|
