'Her brow wrinkled with worry. She knew that he wasn't exaggerating - Lucas had changed. His face was so pale it reflected the moonlight, and his eyes were a dark blue that bordered on black. It was like looking at the midnight twin of her sunshine Lucas. He was still beautiful, but so sad it was painful for her to look at him.'

This is the second book in the [b:Starcrossed|9721690|Starcrossed (Starcrossed, #1)|Josephine Angelini|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1305531230s/9721690.jpg|10862992] Series by [a:Josephine Angelini|3406550|Josephine Angelini|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1298407165p2/3406550.jpg]. I got this in a First Reads Giveaway, along with the first in the Series. I was really looking forward to reading this one, and It didn't disappoint. Helen's strong character continues to grow in this book. She takes the burden of the World on her shoulders,as her friends seem to be growing apart from her.

I really like Helen's character;she's selfless and stays strong throughout everything that's thrown at her. She's having to balance her 'normal' life of School and Family, with her not so normal life of descending into the Underworld every night. Just when she thinks she's alone, help arises in an unexpected place.

I really enjoyed this book, I feel lucky to have won this book, and to have discovered a new series of books that I love. I can't wait to read the third in the series, and see what else Angelini has in store for Helen and her friends.

Dreamless (Awakening), is the second novel in the Starcrossed series. I will say that I really did love the first novel in this series, Starcrossed and though I liked/loved this novel I still have to say that book #1 was my favorite.

Dreamless (Awakening) now has Helen Hamilton coming to terms with the fact that she is a Scion (a descendant of a Greek god and mortal) who has the power to descend into Tartarus as well as a few other powers that the people descended from her House can lay claim to. Helen also is dealing with her love for Lucas Delos and another Scion named Orion who she can be with in a way that she cannot be with Lucas. Helen, Orion, and the other characters that make up the Delos clan with Helen's mortal friends Matt and Claire do their best to help Helen on her quest to destroy the Furies.

Once again I have to say that Ms. Angelini has her Greek mythology down pat throughout this novel. We find out more about Helen and Helen's mother Daphne in this novel. The only reason that I gave this novel three and a half stars is the dreaded love triangle set up in this novel and the dumbing down of characters.

Seriously I loathe love triangles in novels for a variety of reasons but in this novel it was 100 percent not necessary. First of all there was already a lot of moving parts going on in this novel and I didn't really need to have one more thing thrown at me as a reader. Reading about Helen and how much pain she was pointing herself into every night trying descending into Tartarus in order to fight the Furies was really all I needed to read about. I have no idea why every Young Adult novel I read always has a love triangle (looking at you Hunger Games and Twilight) going on.

The other plot point that I thought was seriously goofy is that in this novel Helen and Lucas are led to believe something that if anyone with basic math should have known was a lie. I thought it was beyond dumb myself and then the Ms. Angelini clues in the readers to the lie as well which I also didn't think was a good idea. If anything all it did was increase my frustration. First, I can do math so I already knew that this plot point was a lie. Second, it caused me to get really annoyed with everyone in this novel who can somehow decipher ancient Greek texts and have the power to fly and swim under water without breathing but adding 1 1 together was too hard.

I still really liked this novel and was glad to see the appearance of some other Greek gods and goddesses in this novel. I would recommend to fans of Starcrossed in order to find out what happens to Helen. ( )

It's not often that I say that I loved a sequel (especially a middle book in a trilogy sequel) as much as I did the first book but I most certainly did here. Angelini did a wonderful job of continuing her story, expanding the mythology and carrying me away. I love this series, the Greek mythology and all the characters. I found myself laughing to myself at points because Angelini used phrases that I remember reading myself in the Greek poems that these stories rely on. My only complaint is that there were a number of what I'm going to call printing errors in this book. They usually showed up as missing words in sentences. Not something that would be Angelini's fault but that of people at the publishing house who should have proofread it better. ( )

No le doy el 5 porque no me ha parecido tan espectacular como Predestinados, aun así quiero seguir con el siguiente, tal vez no sea un final de estos de "necesito el siguiente" pero el libro es adictivo y te hace querer saber que va a pasar.
Todavía espero que desmientan algo xD ( )

I read the first book and I couldn't stop there! The second book is filled with passion and love that'll make you come back craving for more. Lucas and Helen's love is unbreakable. Or is it? ( )
