Angelini delivers on the promise of all-out war between the Olympians and Scions (reincarnated demigods) in this Starcrossed finale. With the Great Cycle nearing completion, the Olympians descend and wreak havoc, as Helen’s various new superpowers cause an irreparable schism within the Scions. But readers desiring an answer to the most important question—will Helen choose Lucas or Orion as her true love—need to endure numerous past-life digressions and forays into Helen’s bland new world called Everyland before she makes a decision. Helen ultimately defeats Zeus through trickery rather than sheer explosive power, which is a nice touch. Angelini’s fans will be pleased. Grades 9-12. --Krista Hutley

Angelini culminates her brilliant series with smart twists and turns, emotional turmoil that rivals ancient Greek tragedies, and with stunning starcrossed lovers. I am particularly fond of how she addresses the battles both among the scions and with the gods--clever tricksy author that she is. Any day you get to yell "RELEASE THE KRAKEN" is fundamentally a good day in my book. The lovers plot line has expanded even more with nearly every character finding their counterpoint. Each of those loves are different and wonderful and reflect the characters personalities while exploring the various forms that true love can take; I was fascinated by the Cassandra experience in particular book as well--her disturbing coldness as Oracle allowing for a different kind of love.
For me this series has been a bright star in the night, an oasis in the desert, an ever-fixed island in a sea of change; So thank you, Josephine, for this series, for giving me this world to revel in and enjoy. The best thing about loving books, you don't ever need to say goodbye, so I'll just say, "till we read again old friend."
This is how it's done RIGHT.
It has too much to NOT to be a series. It's everything you dream of in a good book series.
All 3 books are amazing. The Story is chalked full of true imagination containing love, action, family, big reveals, huge betrayals, history, adventure, scary, funny, and all by great characters of this world and a few others.
The Storyline has similar attributes of certain formulas previously read, (It's SO much more though) Yet it is chalked full of originality.
All 3 books were so hard to put down. I loved the actual storyline as a whole. Definitely worth my time. I already know I will read this series again.
The main character is Helen Hamilton. Over the course of the books, Helen's journey is clearly displayed. This book brings that journey to a close. She has shed the skin of weak, hiding behind her best friend Helen, and has stepped into a new one that I believe fits her much better. Helen has found the strength she's been lacking in the previous books. Her powers grow exponentially, which causes some fear in her friends and loved ones. As Helen grows more powerful, she gains new enemies. She is betrayed by someone she trusted most in the book, which literally killed my feels. I wanted to shout at the author for doing this to readers. She is extremely loyal, but to a fault. Even she has her limits when she knows that someone is too far gone. Helen views love, hate, betrayal, grief, and so much more in all their glory. Her new powers startle her, and she grows into them slowly. As she learns her limits and boundaries (which she has almost none of) Helen then pushes them until they break. She proves again and again that she will do anything for those she loves. Lucas, Claire, Orion, and all the others propel her to do things she wouldn't have even considered before. The gods don't stand a chance when Helen's there. She's completely kick-butt powerful and awesome. Awesomesauce doesn't even begin to describe this amazing heroin.
Much of this book felt a bit cheesy. Helen does and says things, especially with love interest Lucas, that just doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the scene. They may be things that need to be said, but not in that exact moment. To be fair, when readers realize just how long they've been pining after each-other, readers will quickly and easily forgive them. Then of course, there's the final battle that the entire book is building towards. Helen makes a really hard decision that has it's repercussions. Let me say this, the final battle was WAY too easy. No matter how much I hate my favorite characters hurting, authors should not go easy on them. Helen has a brilliant idea that I can't fault, but dang it, I wanted more action. This will easily be one of my favorite books of 2013. I give the book five stars!
The only reason it didn't get five stars is that it was wrapped up a little too easily and without too much fighting or hardship for the main characters. This was a little unbelievable for an epic story like Olympus versus Scions in a battle that will forever break the cycle of thousands of years...
Other than that totally enjoyable.
