Summary (cr: goodreads)

After accidentally unleashing the gods from their captivity on Olympus, Helen must find a way to re-imprison them without starting a devastating war. But the gods are angry, and their thirst for blood already has a body count.

To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a diabolical Tyrant is lurking among them, which drives a wedge between the once-solid group of friends. As the gods use the Scions against one another, Lucas’s life hangs in the balance. Still unsure whether she loves him or Orion, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, for war is coming to her shores.

In Josephine Angelini’s compelling conclusion to the masterfully woven Starcrossed trilogy, a goddess must rise above it all to change a destiny that’s been written in the stars. With worlds built just as fast as they crumble, love and war collide in an all-out battle that will leave no question unanswered and no heart untouched.
My Review: (also in goodreads)

This is the the last installment of the Starcrossed trilogy following Starcrossed and Dreamless. This reveals the consequences regarding the decision of freeing the furies. Betrayal and realization is basically the theme of this trilogy's conclusion. I wanted to slap Matt but he realized that the fates were doing this cycle all over again. It broke my heart to see friends in conflict and families apart in this installment, especially the sudden death of one well-loved character. I liked Hades than Zeus here but I guess its the author's way to prove a point. Every decision made had consequences and even though everything is temporarily halted, there was still the threat of the higher beings clouding above them.

Till the next read..
