Josephine Angelini is one of those amazing authors that can create both fantastically developed characters and a kick-ass plot. Dreamless was just as amazing as Starcrossed—there was tons of adventure, mystery, romance, and of course, mythology! What more could you ask for?
As Helen parades around the Underworld trying to find and destroy the Furies, we get an in depth look at one of the most explored places in Greek mythology. There was nothing interesting about Angelini’s Underworld, but we did get to meet an awesome new character, Orion. Orion adds a lot to the story and I am really looking forward to seeing more of him in the next novel.
Angelini manages to keep romance alive in the story despite the ridiculous Lucas/Helen situation (this is the only aspect of the trilogy that truly irritates me beyond belief). Even though Lucas and Helen spend a lot of time a part, they are constantly thinking about each other and I still believe in the strength of their relationship.
The storyline in Dreamless is just fantastic. Not only is it action-packed, but it is also surprising and incredibly exciting. As soon as Dreamless was over, I wanted to pick up the sequel (which unfortunately won’t be released for another year). The ending is just amazing and I need to see where Angelini takes us next.
