Goodreads synopsis: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 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.
Josephine Angelini's compelling saga becomes ever more intricate and spellbinding as an unforgettable love triangle emerges and the eternal cycle of revenge intensifies. Eagerly awaited, this sequel to the internationally bestselling "Starcrossed" delivers a gritty, action-packed love story that exceeds all expectations.
Fates thoughts: I truly enjoyed Dreamless. In fact i liked it even more that Starcrossed, if that's possible. Although a few things did kind of annoy me but overall i loved it.

Helen's character grew a a lot in this book but very slowly. In the beginning she's very exhausted and weak and just doing what she has to do without thinking. She kind of needed guidance, but a while in the book she managed to totally claim charge and realize what needed to do and when. But there where a few times where her slightly impulsive actions led to consequences.

There was a love triangle but i actually appreciated the author's decision because i like the new love interest, Orion. In fact I like the new love interest so much that I kind of want to switch teams. He's sweet and kind and well hot. He also really helped Helen and would die for her. I couldn't help but love him. He's also slightly mysterious and I cant wait to find out more about him in Goddess.   Lucas made some really bad choices in this book, i mean i can kind of see why but that doesn't mean i agree with them. I still like him very much, just not as much as i did in Starcrossed. I'm kind of mad at him for not even trying to really prove if him and Helen are really cousins or not. Throughout the whole book I was mentally yelling at him to please leave what he was doing and actually figure out the truth. But at the same time i want Helen to end up with Orion. Currently I cant choose teams so i guess the next book will determine it.

One of my most favorite characters in this book was Hector and his adorable hugs. Throughout the whole book he was all about helping his family and looking out for them even though he couldn't actually see them. He was really strong and just pure HOTNESS. He's protective but not too much and completely adorable. It would kind of be nice to see him have a little side story romance. 

The two romances that were developing were also really interesting to see. Claire and Jason were totally adorable together. Jason was a bit too protective, but i can see his point. Ariadne and Matt were both totally in love but none of them really did a move, i cant wait to see what will become of them in the second book.

The plot was really interesting, intense and fast pace. I could never tell what was going to happen next. the whole thing with Lucas and Helen being cousins really annoyed me. I mean come on no one can figure out the truth?

Anyway all in all i loved this book, it answered a lot of questions but also left us a few unanswered ones for the next book.I truly can't wait.
