Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 432 pages.
GODDESS is the third and final book in author Josephine Angelini’s Starcrossed Trilogy.
It was not easy choosing a book to watch for the week of May 28th as there are a few books releasing that week that I’m
anxiously desperately awaiting. But as I’ve loved Josephine Angelini’s series longer than any of the others, I just had to choose GODDESS as the book to spotlight this week.
I am so very excited to read this next book in the series. I loved both STARCROSSED and DREAMLESS and cannot wait to see how this series ends. I’ve been trying – and failing – to get this book onto my reading pile for the past few weeks. But I think because it is a series-ending book I may not be trying as hard as I could.
Because as much as I want to know what happens with Helen, want to know whether she chooses Lucas or Orion and want to know who wins the war, I don’t want to see this series end. I’m not ready. And I cannot imagine, even with over four hundred pages, that this series can be wrapped up in just this one book.
I love the way the author introduced the mythology in the first book in the series. I love the new landscape she created in the sequel. And I’m ever so curious as to just what picture she’s painted in this final installment.
The back cover copy mentions a tyrant, a lover and a war. Which makes this book sound so unbelievably epic. And with passages that start off like this one – “I can’t think of anyone in the world who deserves to be loved–loved more–more than you,” Helen said, her voice breaking… – I am even more excited to see how this beautiful, tragic and amazing love story ends.
Yes, I think this series is awesome. Yes, I love how angsty and suspenseful each of these stories are. And, yes, you better believe I love the star-crossed love story. So, as much as I think there are a few books releasing the week of May 28th that deserve the spotlight, there is no doubt in my mind that, for me, GODDESS is the book to watch this week.

About the Book
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.
