Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

(Starcrossed, #2)
by Josephine Angelini
Released |May 29th 2012 by HarperTeen|
Edition |E-ARC|
Helen needs to get through hell in two ways: by night they reflected the underworld, even worse torments her day that Lucas and they may possibly love. In the underworld, Helen meets Orion. The more time they spend together, the closer they come to. Then something totally unexpected happens, the forces calculated for holding and Lucas Orion: The four houses are combined and Scion, a new Trojan war seems inevitable!

Just like Starcrossed, the cover to Dreamless is absolutely breath taking :D The colors, everything! And just like Starcrossed, the content within the book was just as amazing as the cover! Great sequel :)

The one thing I wish I did before I read this sequel was to reread Starcrossed. Authors, this is why you shouldn't wait so long to release your next book! I forgot almost everything LOL! Not everything, but most of the things that popped up again in this book. Ridiculous :) There was some tidbits of back story to the previous book which really help me out tons! Really Janina? I didn't even realized how much I had forgotten...How awful!

The characters were still awesome :) This book pretty much pick up where Starcrossed left off, if I'm not mistaken. Still loving Lucus :) That boy, so dreamy *sigh* I wish there was tons more of him in this story :) Like every single page more? Helen was also awesome. She went through a lot in this book and had to make tons of decisions and think she did an awesome job with them. She really grew as a character and the task she faced in this book was no joke! Not really much romance in this story, but the glimpses of it and the heartache was so there!

Jason was a tad weird to me in this book. He acted so strange towards Helen that it through me off. What up with that? And Matt and Claire were great. They brought more elements to the book, which was an added bonus. And the new addition! Orion, I really, really liked his character :) He was a total sweetheart. But I don't dig the hints of romance between him and Helen. I'm just so angry with the "ISSUE" between Lucus an Helen. But he was an awesome character and I'm glad we were introduced to him in this book! And we saw some gods, whoop whooop! :)

The action was amazing and this book was definitely a page turner! AND WHAT is going to happen in the next book? With that ending between the three, I really don't know! And did Helen ever ask Cassandra what Hades told her to ask her?! I don't think she did! Will that play a part in the next book =O

I definitely recommend this series if you like mythology! Josephine Angelini did a wonderful job with this sequel! I can't wait for book 3 :D Ahh! Thanks to Edelweiss and HarperTeen for an E-ARC of this book :D All thoughts are my honest opinion!
