This book left me thinking one thing... I NEED MORE!! My Review of Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

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.


Initial Thoughts:
Seriously!! Your going to end it like that!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!! That's just... oh geez... thats so wrong!!!! I need more!!! I can't take that ending!!! I NEED MORE!!!!!!

Now on to the Review:
I'm still completely entranced by the storyline in this book. The whole Helen of Troy / Greek Gods thing... DEFINITELY LOVE IT! This book gets big points just for that! The series makes me want to read more Greek mythology books for sure. Starcrossed was a favorite of mine all last year, and now, Dreamless seems to be pretty close to the top of that list as well. Best part of the book had to be Orion! Gotta love when a new character just blows you away! He's not alone though, Helen had a whole set of new surprises in this book too! Loved the suspense! The action! And most of all.. The forbidden romance!!! I'm a total sucker for forbidden romance! The mystery in the story definitely got this reader's brain working, I was right there with the characters, tied to the plot, searching every page for answers! And completely and totally shocked when their whole world came tumbling down! I didn't see it coming at all!! Everything leading up to an ending that left me screaming.. Don't end there!!! Simply put, I wanted more! I need more! This book left some unanswered questions that I'm aching to figure out! The release of Goddess in 2013 feels like an eternity away!!! Five stars from me of course!! This series is just amazing! :)
