And that’s another thing I don’t get, if you’re supposedly related to him why didn’t you want to kill him The wait for Dreamless was a long one, so I couldn’t wait to dive right in the day it was released. You’re not complaining about them Yes, I’m letting Helen freaking Heavenly Hamilton tell you why this book sucks.

I would if I could, if only so this book could end sooner and I didn’t have to suffer through a month of reading it. His known abilities are being able to sway the hearts of others, sense emotions, open one way portals, super strength and speed, cause earthquakes and being able to breathe underwater.

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini – review

But time is running out–a ruthless foe plots against them, as the ancient Greek world collides with the mortal one. He really wants to help Helen but he’s more accepting and open than she is. Why can’t you like do something constructive like learn to fight?

Why the Delos clan hasn’t figured it out about Helen. And while that by itself is great, we’re told that Claire is sort of weary about dating guys who aren’t the same race as her i. Claire is very intelligent – with an almost extensive knowledge of Greek mythology and history – and hopes to be top of her class and go to Harvard University.

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

This book is excellent example of how to ruin series which had plenty of potential. If I really had to choose, I’d probably–oh, come on, I can’t choose!

No, quite frankly I’m not. Known powers are super strength, healing and speed and shadow-bending. I should make it clear that there are many different ways to judge a book, and I’m judging Dreamless in relativity to Greek myths. Descendant of Helen of Troy she is gifted with the face that launched a thousand ships, yet her fate is also cursed.


She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three shelter cats. I’m miffed that he and Helen still don’t know the truth at the end of Dreamless, and I worry what that will mean for him in the next book.

I’m actually not really sure what team I’m on for possibly the first time ever in my life. I honestly don’t even know why, I just do. Why everyone bows down to you? I didn’t really care for that too much.

Angelni she still trains with the Delos clan, Helen and Lucas are coming to terms with the fact that they cannot be together. Matt Millis —A mortal childhood friend of Helen and Claire. So I guess now, I’m going to start my rant. Creon Delos —The main antagonist of the first novel.

Dreamless continues the story of Helen Hamilton, a shy girl living on Nantucket Island whose desire for an ordinary life was thwarted when she discovered she is a Scion, a descendant of a Greek god and a mortal.
