'Her brow wrinkled with worry. She knew that he wasn't exaggerating - Lucas had changed. His face was so pale it reflected the moonlight, and his eyes were a dark blue that bordered on black. It was like looking at the midnight twin of her sunshine Lucas. He was still beautiful, but so sad it was painful for her to look at him.'
This is the second book in the Starcrossed Series by Josephine Angelini. I got this in a First Reads Giveaway, along with the first in the Series. I was really looking forward to reading this one, and It didn't disappoint. Helen's strong character continues to grow in this book. She takes the burden of the World on her shoulders,as her friends seem to be growing apart from her.
I really like Helen's character;she's selfless and stays strong throughout everything that's thrown at her. She's having to balance her 'normal' life of School and Family, with her not so normal life of descending into the Underworld every night. Just when she thinks she's alone, help arises in an unexpected place.
I really enjoyed this book, I feel lucky to have won this book, and to have discovered a new series of books that I love. I can't wait to read the third in the series, and see what else Angelini has in store for Helen and her friends.
