Reviews for Starcrossed
I'm completely in love with this book
Sometimes I feel so dumb. I can't believe that I had such a wonderful book at home and it took me almost two months to start reading it. This is really something that I don't know how to explain to you.
I'm completely in love with this book and wishful for the release of the second one.
To be honest with you all, in the beginning I thought that maybe the story was a little too childish, it was only when Lucas appeared that everything was set in motion and star to develop in an enthusiastic way. Unfortunately, the first chapter has low quality if we compare to the book as a whole. Forgetting about the first chapter - especially the first five pages - and we have a great surprise which end's with the introduction of the Delos' family in the story. This is the moment that the veil of mystery is uncovered, we totally forget about time and we only want to know some more about what's really happening.
I really enjoyed the book, in some way it seems that we only have erotic books in our bookstores, so this story was, for me, something new and separate from our market tendency. Mythology is such a great theme, there are so many topics to explore, so I don't understand why we - Portuguese readers - don't have more of these books to read.
The characters are great, it was a job well done with their construction, just like it was the scenery. For me, everything was so well set that it was almost normal to see people using special powers; it was just like this was something that we see every day in our neighborhood. Although they were only teenagers, I keep forgetting it, because their behavior was similar to an adult and not a 16 year old teenager. I loved the relationship between Lucas and Helen, just like I loved Jason and Claire. Since the beginning I noticed that something special was waiting for them. Another character who made me curious was Hector, I believe we are going to see more of him on the next books.
