Publisher Description

The perfect start to the Starcrossed series. 

Dive into the world of modern-day demigods with a dazzling new enemies to lovers novel from bestselling author Josephine Angelini. This Greek mythology series is ideal for fans of Alexandra Bracken and Chloe Gong.

New York City, 1993. It wasn’t Daphne’s choice to move into the heart of a struggle that has been secretly waging for thirty-three hundred years, but not much in her life has been up to her. Fate has brought Daphne, daughter of Zeus, and Heir to the House of Atreus to where the descendants of the Greek gods can shed blood over her once again.

Men are fated to kill for her.


But New York holds a surprise for Daphne and her cursed face—the same one that once launched a thousand ships. A series of murals painted all over town mysteriously pull at her in ways she can't understand. That’s because the artist is Ajax Delos, Son of Apollo, Scion of the House of Thebes, and Daphne’s mortal enemy.

She found the one worth dying for.


With the Fates manipulating them both like pieces on a chessboard, Daphne and Ajax must find a way to break the cycle of destruction set in motion by their ancestors before the walls of Troy, or risk becoming yet another pair of star-crossed lovers doomed to repeat the same fatal mistakes.

Absolutely loved loved loved this book

HAPPY PUB DAY Josie!!

Today is the day you guys, Scions is out in the world!!!

I loved loved loved this book, the characters were amazing, the setting (New York in the 90s) was amazing, the cameos from other Starcrossed characters made me so incredibly happy. This book was everything I wanted it to be and so much more!

“We made a deal. No one can kill him but me.” — this is one of my favorite tropes, we’re enemies and I’m supposed to kill you but I love you and can’t stay away from you.

Daphne was the true morally grey character in Starcrossed and I enjoyed seeing her perspective as she navigated through life in this book. We learn more about why she is the way she is and there were some parts I started to feel bad for disliking her in the Starcrossed series. I’ve reread these ones already but might have to go back again because of everything I’ve learned with Scions.

Let’s talk about Ajax for a second—or forever. I fell head over heels for him the minute he comes onto the page I was wanting more. “Tell me your favorite color, Daphne, and I’ll paint the sky with it.” 😍😍😍 I’m not 💯 sure but I might like Ajax just as much as I do Lucas or maybe more and I’m not even one bit sorry about that.

Scions is out now! If you haven’t read the Starcrossed series, one—why haven’t you-they’re amazing and two—you can totally read this one first as it’s technically a prequel but also a sequel. So just go read it okay because it’s AMAZING!
