How do you defy destiny?This sounds like a unique and engaging story that I can't wait to get my hands on! That cover was what first caught my attention too. I love the colors and I love the dress she's wearing, with the wind blowing it. It looks and sounds great. What are you waiting for this week?
Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen 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.
"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine
