Goodreads: 4/5 stars
Helen Hamilton is just trying to make it through high school. Possessing the ability to run faster than most human beings (among other powers), she knows she’s always been different from most kids. When the Delos family moves onto Nantucket Island, she has the sudden urge to kill Lucas—one of the Delos boys. The closer she gets to him, the more she sees the Three Fates, who are behind her murderous thoughts.
After a brief visit with death, both Lucas and Helen realize the Three Fates aren’t following them anymore, and that they actually care about each other. Lucas teaches Helen how to control her powers since certain Delos family members want Helen dead. The extended Delos family members believe that, if they kill the last of the Four Houses (Helen’s), they can raise Atlantis. But the further Helen and Lucas dive into their relationship, the more they learn about their roles in previous lifetimes—and how destiny will always keep them apart.
I had originally debated whether I would give this book 3.5 stars or not, but decided to go with 4. The reason? I couldn’t stop reading. Even though I’ve been finished for days, I still think about the characters and wonder what’ll happen in book two. I know everyone’s comparing this book to Twilight, but it seems comparing every book with a falling-head-over-heels relationship to S. Meyer’s work is pretty popular these days. While there are similarities, I like to read books for their stories and not base them on something I’ve already read. Where’s the fun in that?
