WOW!!! I really loved this book. Just finished it a few hours ago, and my mind keeps dragging me back to go over one detail or another. I love characters whose personalities aren't clear-cut black or white - ones who are motivated by both good and evil. And Josie's addition of the Furies makes this possible.

I love the fact that she takes ideas from ancient literature and molds them into something that works well in a contemporary story. Placing the story on the island of Nantucket is pure genius in so many (untold) ways. We are left hanging at the end, but I don't mind it in this case because I still have so much to mull over in this book. (And a year to re-read the Iliad so that I'll be up to par on all of the back-stories.) That is not to say I won't be doing everything I can to wrangle an advance copy of Book 2!

I am proud to say that Josie and I will be traveling together on the Dark Days of Summer tour. I can't wait to meet her and congratulate her in person on STARCROSSED.

Olga Thank You for liking this book. I do not know why people have to say like all these things were overkills in the book. well, if we are going to talk about overkills, lets talk about how much i hate robert pattinson in twilight. honest to God, find a better guy. the movie just killed my appreciation for twilight books after watching the movies.

Lisa Amy,

Taking your advice for the recommendation and diving into this first book in the series...
