How do you defy destiny?
Helen Hamilton has spent her entire 16 years trying to hide how different she is - no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood... and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together - and trying to tear them apart.

Where are the Sequels?
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!
First novel of a trilogy?
