Dreamless Review

487 pages

Can true love be forgotten? As the only scion who can descend into the Underworld, Helen Hamilton has been given a nearly impossible task. By night she wanders through Hades, trying to stop the endless cycle of revenge that has cursed her family. By day she struggles to overcome the fatigue that is rapidly eroding her sanity. Without Lucas by her side, Helen is not sure she has the strength to go on. Just as Helen is pushed to her breaking point, a mysterious new Scion comes to her rescue. Funny and brave, Orion shields her from the dangers of the Underworld. But time is running out--a ruthless foe plots against them, and the Furies' cry for blood is growing louder. As the ancient Greek world collides with the mortal one, Helen's sheltered life on Nantucket descends into chaos. But the hardest task of all will be forgetting Lucas Delos.

Well this novel brought out a lot more than the first novel. While this story was a bit slow, it gave a lot more background information than before. Helen is trying to grow in this novel but she's also killing herself to try to stop all the revenge between the Scions. I felt so bad for Helen and Lucas at the end of the previous novel but then Orion appears in this novel and I'm torn. I want to see everything work out with Lucas but Orion is an amazing character as well. I love the way that Greek mythology is tied into this story. I'm a huge fan of mythology based novels and this one is no exception. There is still a lot that isn't revealed by the end of this book but a lot of things are also solved and made right as well. Everything that happened in the last half of this book made this an exciting read. I can't wait to see what happens in the next novel in this series and how the love triangle will end. I definitely recommend this novel if you like mythology and have also read the first novel Starcrossed.
