Dreamless (Starcrossed #2)
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...more
I NEED this book! Soon. Like now!! Or yesterday, whichever is best!
UPDATE: GORGEOUS COVER
Oh no…a love triangle. Didn't see that coming -.- Angelini, please do it tastefully!
So this is a link to an email from Angelini that actually does clear up this date discrepancy. Thank you to Angela who emailed the author!
I can't. Form. Comple ...more
I loved Dreamless so much more than Starcrossed, although I was still disappointed with several aspects of it unfortunately. Still, it was an excellent read and I genuinely enjoyed it. I felt that it was an extremely well-done second installment and I was especially impressed by the character development.
Helen grows a lot in this book. Unfortunately, it's a rather slow growth, and it takes a while to really get into it. She starts out uns ...more
Hold on a sec while I pick my jaw up off the floor…
I’m suffering from one GARGANTUAN (love that word) book hangover. Seriously, I’m a mess. You can’t see me right now, but my hair is doing that I’ve-never-heard-of-a-brush thing, and my clothes are direly craving the ironing board (that I never use), and my emotions are off somewhere crying in a corner begging for a shot or bottle of Tequila.
And the buttprint on my very comfy couch is getting larger. I’d like to think that the largeness of ...more
A........ a love triangle?!?!?!?
After spending about three weeks researching for an hour-long presentation about Helen and Paris and knowing how their relationship truly was (which I will be editing on my Starcrossed review very soon), I hate this book even more, and she had to add a love triangle into this already jumbled up, mixed up mess?!
Oh, Helen, my dear. 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.
The main thing I can recall about reading this book is that it was so incredibly boring. It took me so long reading it, trudging through it by bits and pieces at a time because it was so completely, utterly unabsorbing. I'm always amazed at how a plot-driven book can be so dull, but this book proves that it can ...more
"A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort."
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the antithesis of a sophomore slump. Angelini steps up the action and the passion and the sizzling tension in DREAMLESS; in fact, breathing isn't an option. You'll be holding the air in your lungs and turning pages faster than you can believe.
Helen Hamilton just can't ...more
My Lucas, Helen and Orion:
This book is excellent example of how to ruin series which had plenty of potential. So what would I recommend not to do?
*Change heroine from lovable girl into whinning self-pittying girl.
*Take away banters and interactions between hero and heroine which were the most interesting part of book #1 and which made this s ...more
I stayed up all night reading it! Definite must read!!!
My review before I read this:
"A... Love.. Triangle... WTF... I now completely DETEST love triangles.. I mean, it is good ...more
Are you, Jose Angelini, one of the descendants of, um, I don't know... Is there Greek goddess of torturing by cliffhangers? Just to make one thing clear - I wouldn't mind if you leave the love story as it is. Yes, I am that kinky.
Second book in Starcrossed series picks up where first one ended so maybe it would be good idea if you refresh your memory before you start reading. Dreamless is more focused on Helen's role in the new world she found hersel ...more
Hi, my name's Helen. I am the absolutely STUNNING AND PERFECT LOOKING protagonist of this book. In fact, I'm the most freaking beautiful girl in the world. No joke. The face that launched a thousand ships and all that. Doesn't matter that beauty is subject to the eyes of the beholder and different cultures have different definitions of beautiful.
Last book ...more
Okay, so this is a toughie for me. I am a huge Starcrossed fan, it is such a well-executed, thrilling story with characters that I just absolutely fell in love with. The wait for Dreamless was a long one, so I couldn't wait to dive right in the day it was released. Honestly, though, I found myself really struggling to get back into the story, and at about 20% in I had to shelf this one for a few weeks. I finally sat down today and finished it, and I was a little disappointed ...more
I thought I would hate Orion, but he actually turned out okay. Though Helen annoyed me a bit at some parts, she never crossed the line th
Screw the format I usually follow.
I can't do it today. Not after I read this rainbow turd of a book. That's right, I said rainbow turd. And when I say rainbow turd, you know the book's shitty. If you don't want to read my entire rant about why Dreamless was even more insipid than its shitty predecessor, I'll briefly summarize why I hated it: it was way too long, the character is on the same Mary Sue level as Bethany Church, a ...more
I finally finished reading Dreamless by Josephine Angelini last night and I have to say that I like it as much as I liked the first one. Maybe even more. Anyway, the novel is another take on the Greek Mythology and if you're my reader then by now you should know that I simply love anything about Greek Myths.
First of all, I have to say that I appreciated Helen even more in this book. She was one bad -ass chick and I love her for that. I wanted to hug her every time ...more
It's not crying because it's not entirely bad. I am not saying it's bad, its just thatI didn't enjoy this as much as I enjoyed the first book.
Read further to know why.
Starcrossed ended with a huge
Okay going back, Helen is a Descender meaning she is could go down to the Underworld eventhough she isn't dead yet. Why does she have to ...more
Another One-Sit-Read for me, this is the second book in the Starcrossed series and it is the second time I stayed awake most of the night to finish this fascinating story.
I am doing the pretzel dance! What is the Pretzel Dance you say? It's when every limb is crossed while jumping up and down maniacally :o] Yes, I am doing the Pretzel Dance after finishing the last page of Dreamless! Yes, it was 4 ...more
Again, what I really adored about this book was the heavy focus on mythology. And though it was much of the same stories this time, this one had an extreme focus on the Underworld and Helen's travels in it as the Descender, as well as her meetings with ...more
