Goddess (Starcrossed #3)
by Josephine Angelini


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.


The first thing I can say about Goddess is that it was full of emotions – be it love, heartbreak, suspense, or sympathy. There were a lot of unexpected twists, which made the plot all the more interesting. The story was really parallel to that of actual Greek mythology, so that was really cool. It made me feel like every character was important, and the story wouldn’t be the same if even one of them were missing, no matter major or minor character. There were times when I got confused with the POV changes, but that’s okay. What I loved most about the novel, though, was the ending. It wasn’t exactly a happily ever after, but it made me smile all the same. I’m glad that the characters were finally able to break the cycle and live their own lives even amidst the threats looming over them. Also, it’s great that in spite of the love triangle between Helen, Lucas, and Orion, the three of them were still able to find closure and contentment in the end.

Quotes From the Book

“Some things stay a little bit broken forever—even after they’ve been fixed.”

“But how could anyone be grateful for what they have if they didn’t know what it was
like not to have what they need?”

“She'd created her own hell, and now that she had learned to control her fear, she knew how to create her own paradise.”
