Angelini brings an electrifying spin on Greek mythology where action, romance, and suspense fill the pages. I love how she has included the Helen of troy and Paris story in the modern times. What really engaged me about the story was the unique idea of how Helen first hated Lucas. Unlike many other fantasy novels the heroine of the book didn't fall head over heels with the protagnosist straight away. Instead she felt another strong emotion, hatred and this is what made me pick up the book in the first place.
I was constantly in suspense when I was reading it, wanting to know what happened next. It is defininetly worth reading and if your fans of Romeo and Juliet and starcrossed lovers story you would love this!
I cannot wait for the sequel.
