eBook Review: Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

Goodreads:  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.

This is another awesome instalment in the Starcrossed series.  I couldn't wait for the release of this one after the ending in Starcrossed and it didn't disappoint.  The cover is beautiful too!

Helen and Lucas are unable to be together because they are apparently related somewhere down the line.  The tension between them causes problems for the whole family.

Helen must travel to the underworld in order to destroy the furies.  Destroying the furies will allow freedom among the Scions and putting a stop to the fighting.  Helen must travel in her sleep, but also keep safe from those trying to stop her from succeeding.

Enter Orion! He is on a mission to help Helen succeed and in the mean time feelings develop between the two.

Will Helen be able to get over Lucas enough to give Orion a chance?  Will she be able to destroy the furies to save the Scions?  Will she die while attempting her mission? What will the consequences be?

Amazing! Josephine has an unbelievable way of drawing the reader in that keeps turning pages until it's finished.
