 Great sequel to a great book :)

Wow. You know when you finish a book, and you just want to cry because it's over? That's how I felt finishing Dreamless. The characters are so well developed that you really feel like you know them. Orion, who is introduced in Dreamless, is a particular favourite of mine (and not just because I fell in love just from his physical description!). He's one of those characters that you just want to know more about - and the more you know, the more you like him!
Dreamless is set about two thirds in Nantucket, and a third in the Underworld. What's really great about Josephine Angelini is that she writes so clearly and easily understandable through potentially a potentially confusing plot. She is such an engaging and clear author - after reading Starcrossed I had been worried that she would not be able to write another book as good, but I'd say she's actually managed to do even better!
I am a major fan of love triangles. From the end of Starcrossed, I did wonder what sort of romance there would be in Dreamless, but what there is is perfect - a gorgeous, perfect Orion for Helen, but still a heartbreaking forbidden love for Lucas. The romance was prioritised behind the plot, and while it still played a major role in the book, it did not drown out the action bits, which often happens in these kind of books.
To sum it up, I loved Dreamless. The writing is flawless, and the plot and characters are well developed and great. 10/10 - you will not regret reading this.

 Amazing and Addictive

I adored Starcrossed and I was seriously excited when I came home from my boyfriends and found Dreamless waiting for me. My love for Angelini's writing is immense because it's easy to follow and understand.

I had my worries about Dreamless purely because Starcrossed was so good, I didn't know if anything that followed would be AS good. But Dreamless surpassed my expectations and I absolutely loved it. There was, once again, the right amount of romance, action and adventure all combined to make a truly amazing read.

We join Helen and Lucas as they continue to struggle with the news that they're cousins and the fact that they have to stay away together, which is obviously a huge struggle for these starcrossed lovers... who aren't allowed to be lovers.

But, there has to be a love triangle at some point, and Orion was a great addition to this little gang. Orion helps Helen on her quest as a descender because she just can't do it alone. She finds she's getting no where, and she isn't helping anyone. Although I said it's a love triangle, it isn't one of your typical really annoying love triangles - mostly because we know that Helen and Lucas just cannot be together because they're cousins. Helen just finds it insanely difficult to forget the feelings she had for this boy.

The story takes place in the real world and the underworld, but it's never confusing. You always understand where the story is happening, and to be honest it's written beautifully. Josephine has an amazing way of causing her audience to become addicted to her book. I only stopped reading because I had visitors and then my boyfriend came over for 5 days. Otherwise I'd have sat and read Dreamless as much as I could.

The twist at the end has set Goddess up to be amazing. I can't wait to get my hands on it, it's a huge shame it doesn't have an expected release date yet, but one thing is for certain: I'll wait as long as I need to to get my hands on that book.

 Perfect

A stunning sequel to the bestseller Starcrossed and definitely worth the wait!

The whole plot of the story is such an imaginative one that Josephine Angelini has kept up to the standards of creating a god like world. Based on the whole idea of gods and power, Dreamless captures the excitement, dangers and wonders of a new world. I particularly like how the Underworld is portrayed to the audience, creating such a lonely and barren place that the reader becomes to think of it as a nightmare, which is how it is intended to be as it is the Underworld, it is hell. However, although the plot and description throughout the book is engaging, I think some readers could find it to be a little slow in places, but this should not let this affect them as it is definitely worth the wait for the ending of the book.

Moving on to characters I have to admit that the main character, Helen, did at some points annoy me in some way, and I can imagine why some people may dislike her. However this did not ruin the book for me and I hope it doesnt for anyone else! Helen is similar to other heroines in other books, but what makes her different is her personality and how she reacts to things. At the end of the book I definitely admired how she acted. The descriptions and characteristics of other characters is also very well presented to us and I enjoyed reading about different characters and the detail Angelini gives creates a vivid image in the readers mind, making the story feel more believable.

Overall this is a sequel worth reading!
