Product Description

Tasked with descending to the underworld and killing the Furies, Helen must endure hellish torture whenever she goes to sleep – she wanders around the various levels of hell with no idea how to complete her task, and she’s beginning to suffer from extreme exhaustion. Although she still trains with the Delos clan, Helen and Lucas are coming to terms with the fact that they cannot be together. Lucas believes that the only way Helen will complete her quest is if he leaves her alone completely, so he tells her he doesn’t want to see her again and that he never loved her. Distraught, Helen carries on with her mission, and for the first time meets another person down in the shadowy underworld: Orion, descended from Adonis and with the power to control desire, he is the heir to the house of Rome and an outcast. He’s also kind of hot. Confused by her conflicting emotions but glad to have an ally in hell, Helen begins to realize the enormity of her task . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Gut wrenchingly heartbreaking 14 Jun 2012
By Ms. C. A. Anderson VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Already a fan from the first book, I seriously couldn't wait for this book and Angelini did not disappoint.

We are brought straight back to the both shocking and saddening cliffhanger from the last book that Lucus and Helen are actually cousins. While we know, from Helen's mother Daphne's conversations previously that this is not true, Helen, Lucus and the rest of the Delos clan and everyone else do not and what we witness is heartbreaking in it's entirety as they try to stay away from each other when they clearly still love each other. Star crossed lovers they are - Romeo and Juliet all over again.

While this is constantly in both Helen and our minds every time they are in the same room, or near each other, an important task is now in play. Helen is the Scions only chance of freeing those such as Hector who have been Outcast. The only way thought to do so is to kill off the furies which enrage members of the same house and other opposing houses to attack their own flesh and blood such as Hector, to pay a blood debt. Helen is the Descender and is tasked with descending into the Underworld to find a way to set the Outcast's free, but while she has been chosen to do so, she has been dealing with Hell, quite literally and it is taking it's toll on her.

While she constantly wanders the Underworld every night for weeks trying to figure out how to complete her task of saving the Outcasts, she is suffering from exhaustion due to the lack of sleep since every time she goes to sleep she descends. What doesn't help is that while both Lucas and Helen accept that they can't be together, Lucus has taken to cutting her off completely from him in a cruel and hurtful way that see's even the reader surprised.

By JK TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Lovely, dreamlike sequel with beautifully descriptive locations and nicely worked fantasy characters. Josephine Angelina writes in a style that flows. She carries the reader along and Dreamless was a pleasure to read.

The opening themes of unrequited love, Helen and Lucas, spur Helen along in her quest to rid the Underworld of the Furies. She's such a believable character and a great mix of romantic lead and young, warrior queen. There's always a sense that whatever trial Helen is forced to undertake she'll come through fighting for what she believes is lost and for what she believes is right but; don't feel too comfortable at this point. Just when you feel Helen might be reaching the end, there's a huge amount of uncertainty, the author twists the plot and introduces the beautiful and seductive Orion.

Orion meets up with Helen when she's at her most vulnerable and maybe, just maybe, this mystical Knight with his gift for 'controlling desire' has the power to make her forget true love?. I'm not telling you anything else about the plot - read the book!.

Rich, full bodied fantasy packed with drama, romance and energy. Enough depth to hook in any fan of the genre and recommended for this age group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, Love, LOVE 2 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
Dreamless is the second book in the Starcrossed trilogy, a Greek mythology-inspired series about Helen Hamilton, a young Goddess. If you haven’t read the first book, you might want to look away now as there are some spoilers of the Dreamless predecessor coming up.

So, when I first read that summary I was a little dubious. I mean, it’s a love triangle (something I both love and hate) and it all sounds rather dramatic. But in reality, Josephine Angelini has managed to be completely convincing, so I believed every emotion that Helen was feeling. She doesn’t all of a sudden stop loving Lucas, which is something I was quite concerned about. In fact, she doesn’t stop being in love with Lucas at all. (Phew!).

I actually think Orion is a really great character that brings a whole new dimension to the series. He’s a connection to Helen’s mother, he has intriguing new powers and he develops an interesting relationship with the Delos family.

I think what makes the Starcrossed series so great is the relationships, and the characters that are involved in them. I’m not just talking about the relationship between Orion and the Delos family, but between all of the characters in the trilogy, including Helen and her dad Jerry, and Helen and her mum Daphne. Both of those relationships, while completely contrasting, are believable and relatable, and show us different sides to Helen’s character.

Extremely well written and captivating, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Starcrossed (and Dreamless) to another YA fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars a must read 16 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent 2nd book of the trilogy. It does not suffer from second book syndrome where you can tell that some authors are just saving everything for the finale. This is just as actioned packed as the first. The only reason it is not a 5 star rating is because there were as we have come to expect a few frustrating cliff hangers
