I have gotten so sick of getting into series and having to wait a year or two for the sequels to come out. In the last 3 months i have started 6 series and will have to wait until 2014 and even 2015 to finish. ENOUGH, I said!! So I went hunting, determined to find a good series that had all the books already published. I found this trilogy on Good Reads and was excited to see all the books were out already and that they were on Audible! My mistake was not making sure ALL THREE books were on Audible. Uggggh!! I desperately want to finish this series! I will have to add it to my to-do list now, along with ALL the others. Like another review said I am surprised there aren't more reviews on this book. I would also agree with the review that I was also put off by the synopsis and didn't want to read this book initially. So much so, that for the first few chapters I thought it was going to be terrible. But to my surprise the book did a backflip and I fell in love with the twists and turns, and especially, the character development. I also like how there is a "love story" type situation in the book, but it doesn't dominate the story with puppy love or stupid triangles. There is actually a plot that isn't ENTIRELY about romance. The Greek mythology entwined in the book is intriguing and I highly recommend this book! Now if only Audible would get the other two books recorded already!

I really enjoyed this read. The book was engaging, interesting, extremely well narrated, but it left me wondering where the second and third volumes were languishing. The second in the series is Dreamless. It was published and out in May of 2012. I'm really anxious to read the sequels because this writer doesn't short change the reader with a couple of dozen dime novels to tell a story when she can tell a full and compete story in a trilogy. I love the characters she painted with her words and I'm so surprised that I'm the first to write a review on this volume because it should have scads of them long since.
I wonder if those who read it failed to post a review until they had continued the story in the sequels. If so, that's a pity because anyone who read the reviews would be downloading this book right now. As it is, I may have to go to Barnes&RobYou to download it to my Nook when I'd really enjoy it while on a long drive or even while cleaning house. I get so interested and into it that I fail to notice that I'm working or even working out, God forbid. Oh well... At least read Starcrossed because you will like it. I had had it in my library but was a tiny bit put off by the synopsis. That may need to be revisited in case anyone else had the same reaction. I thought, wow.... why didn't I read this sooner?
Do yourself a favor and don't put it off. It's worth it.
Oh, I nearly forgot. In my research, I put the authors name in my search engine and she has a website. So, I trucked on over there even though I should be in bed, and wouldn't you know? The third book in the trilogy is titled "Goddess." It can be pre-ordered in print but I think it can be downloaded now to my Nook. PLEASE, Audible... get these two recorded into audible books so we can buy them?
