Dreamless Review


As the only Scion that can enter Hades at will, Helen descends to the Underworld in search of a way to overcome the Furies and end the cycle of revenge that has cursed the Scions. But she’s running out of time. Each descent weakens her both in mind and spirit. A mysterious stranger might be her only salvation, but the price may be her love for Lucas Delos.

As an unforgettable love triangle emerges, Josephine Angelini’s compelling saga becomes ever more intricate and spellbinding. The eagerly awaited sequel to the internationally bestselling Starcrossed, Dreamless delivers with a huge emotional impact that will leave readers satisfied—and longing for more.

What I Loved
Book Two
The middle book is always the killer book in a trilogy, I love the middle books but at the same time they drive me crazy because I'm so close yet so far from the ending. So many answers I want now and I have to wait, but I loved this one. Dreamless kept me entranced and captivated throughout the entire book. Lots of both good and bad things happened by the end of the book.
Wow this book is filled with so many emotions; desire for the off limits, exhaustion for a seemingly impossible task, betrayal, developing feelings for another. . . the list can go on and on. Helen was being pulled in so many directions and I could feel her pain.
Helen: She was amazing in this book, I admire her for her stamina and continually dealing with her horrible trips to the Underworld. Also handling another heart breaking situation that I don't want to say what it is. Her willingness to fight and learn how to defend herself without her abilities. I really do love Helen in this book and I will be 100% rooting for her in the battles to come. 
Greek Mythology 
My favorite thing about this series. I love any retelling or use of Greek mythology in books and Josie does wonderfully with creating her own use of the heroic mythological characters and archetypes. I will also admit that I love Hades especially when he is used as the brooding good guy and I'm so happy with how Josie portrayed Hades in her version. Oh and we get to meet Morpheus, WOW, I would love to visit him in my dreams.     

Didn't Like
Having to wait for the final book, killer!

You have got to read this series especially if you love the tale of Romeo and Juliet mixed with Greek mythology.
