Starcrossed - Josephine Angelini I am contemplating whether this was a good read or not. It reminded me of Twilight, only instead of vampires and werewolves, we get an inaccurate retelling of Greek mythology.

The story centers around Helen Hamilton who gets caught up in trouble when the truth about her being has surfaced. She doesn't understand why she wants to kill Lucas Delos, or any Delos for that matter, and it was only a matter of time until they actually managed to kill each other. Then the unthinkable happened. With an act of saving a life, the curse that bound them to kill each other seemed to have gone but new feelings between Lucas and Helen has taken it's place. But just as they had finally grown closer to each other, other forces threaten to break them apart.

Helen and Lucas' vow of eternal love for each other had ended so abruptly, it kinda left me hanging there. Although, the ongoing family feud was interesting as it progressed, even if my insides writhed in discomfort at reading inaccurate rehashes of Greek mythology. As for the sappiness factor, i wasn't all too weirded out and i liked the fact that it didn't focus too much on the romantic side. The balance between the romantic conflicts between Helen and Lucas and the conflicts between their families was just spot on.

Overall, it was really interesting. It's not deep literature material, but it didn't need to be. I actually liked the way it was written, and it was not overblown with description. I might pick up the next book in the series if it promises to be better than this one.
