Book Review / Dreamless by Josephine Angelini (No Spoilers)

Below is the description for book 1 in this trilogy, Starcrossed, to avoid spoilers for those who have not read book 1

How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

My Review

What I loved about this book...
Obviously as this is book two in a series there is a lot that I cannot say here so as to avoid spoilers but what I enjoyed the most in this books it the plotline.  There were so many twists and turns that definately left me guessing what was going to happen next and trying to figure out the 'bigger picture'

What I was not fond of with this book...     
A large part of this story is following the main character Helen as she embarks on something that I cannot say as it will spoil the story but I did feel that nearer the middle of this book it did drag but the start and the finish defiantely made up for the slow middle.
