What an irritating read! I had started this expecting to be blown away. Instead, I got a Twilight-esque story with a plot that was staring me in the face.
The author seemed like she was trying to be subtle and sneaky with her plot. As if you didn't really know that the 3 sisters were the Fates, and that you didn't know that she was a demigod. You didn't know that the guy that she had tried to kill was (of course) going to be her soul mate. And you didn't know that there was going to be a near apocalypse if Helen was to be with said soul mate. But I knew it as soon as it started, and that made me crazy. The whole idea was so painfully obvious to me, I was at the point where I was just trying to force my way through the agonizing idiocy. And don't get me wrong, the Angelini can write, but she needs to either stop trying to be subtle, or actually BE subtle. The false subtlety was beyond frustrating.
This felt like such a Twilight rip-off. Helen's super shy and thinks everyone hates her. In reality everyone completely adores her. (Heavenly Helen? Really?) The guy she hates turns out to be a superhero, and she happens to be his perfect match. Oh, and of course he's the most beautiful boy on the planet. AND his sister sees the future. AND he can tell if people are lying (mind reading?). Helen then chooses to sacrifice their love for the greater good, but it doesn't go the way she planned. It was all so similar to Twilight that I wondered if Angelini had simply changed it to Greek mythology instead of vampires.
The killer part of it all is that Angelini really is a decent author. She has talent. It was smoothly written. Even the perspective changes were well done. The plot was just so glaringly obvious and over-used, and that cancels out all of the positive.
I just can't bring myself to give this any more than 2 stars. I hope the sequel will be <s>a little</s> a lot more original.
