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. Each Scion has a power, and Helen’s is the ability to travel to Hades. Helen is determined to use her talent to stop a war amongst the gods and change her destiny, which is to live a life patterned after that of the tragic Helen of Troy. But her quest may cost her Lucas Delios, the boy she loves.
Dreamless was a great book. I liked it better than the first because they book expands more onto the gods and the history of the some of the characters. Also a bunch of characters are introduced. A love triangle starts to form, which I think would have been annoying because so many of those exist, but it actually made the story better. Like every Greek story there is always a prophecy and hers, in a quick summary, is that when all the houses of scions are connected there will be a war. And with all the new characters you see how this is possible. It adds to all this tension and suspense that seems to be slowly dragging through the book making you waiting for the bomb at the end of the novel. Some of the most hated people are now people that are trusted and make huge sacrifices with the added pain of characters like Hector who can't even look at his family.
There is a lot more romance in this novel and you can't help but feel sad for Helena and Lucas because of them thinking they are cousins. If you weren't aware they were cousins read the first book again because they tell you in the first book, so you should read the first book. Also the gods play a much bigger part on this novel. Helen gets to totally kick butt in this book because she really can hold herself up against a god.
Also HADES is in this, and of course he's the only good god in this novel. You kinda already expected this. Persephone is not like in the Percy Jackson series and actually likes Hades and is positive about her situation. I liked to watch each of the characters struggle with their own demons and try to make something of themselves of what they should do. The end of course was a bomb; it wouldn’t be one of my favourite books if it didn’t have that. You will have fun reading this book but don't read it because you will not get it if you have not read the first book. The series is getting a lot more epicer and the next book will be the last in the series.
