After Reading: Dreamless
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.
Oh man, I so love these books. I had to go back and re-read Starcrossed before I read this one, and now I'm really kind of wishing I'd waited a while so I didn't have to wait sooo long for the last book to come out. Because, yeah, they're just awesome, full of great characters, hot guys, and demigods. What's not to love? I can't wait for the last book so I can finally figure out just what Helen's mother has up her sleeve, because whatever it is, it's better be good! Other amazing things about this book? Orion. I kind of adore the name, just in general, and he added an element to this book that kept it from dragging in places where it otherwise might have. Plus, there are just lots of fun other characters to keep things interesting and entertaining. Definitely worth a read!
