As the only scion who can descend into the Underworld, Helen Hamilton has been given a nearly impossible task. By night she wanders through Hades, trying to stop the endless cycle of revenge that has cursed her family. By day she struggles to overcome the fatigue that is rapidly eroding her sanity. Without Lucas by her side, Helen is not sure she has the strength to go on.
Just as Helen is pushed to her breaking point, a mysterious new Scion comes to her rescue. Funny and brave, Orion shields her from the dangers of the Underworld. But time is running out. A ruthless foe plots against them, and the Furies' cry for blood is growing louder.
As the ancient Greek world collides with the mortal one, Helen's sheltered life on Nantucket descends into chaos. But the hardest task of all will be forgetting Lucas Delos.
I loved this book way more than when I read it back earlier this year.
The new character Orion for once is so adorable even though I amTteam Lucas :D
But I think in this book and in the whole trilogy it isn't that kind of love triangle like in other books but I would say it's like the one of The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare because Helen loves both, the same as Tessa in TID.
Okay. The Hades really freaked me out at some point but yeah :D
Anyway. At some point in this book I was so confused like Helen was because of Lucas actions but afterwards the only thing I thought was that it must have been really hard for him to do it.
Orion was Helen such a support in the Underworld which is why I like him that much.
Jason annoyed me a bit with the whole 'Helen-you-are-a-Scion-but-Claire-not' thing but well... I can understand him aswell..
It was a great sequel to Starcrossed !
