As an unforgettable love triangle emerges, Josephine Angelini’s compelling saga becomes ever more intricate and spellbinding. The eagerly awaited sequel to the internationally bestselling Starcrossed, Dreamless delivers with a huge emotional impact that will leave readers satisfied — and longing for more.
Josie was born in a tiny town in Massachusetts called Ashland. When she meets people from Massachusetts and tells them 'what part' she hails from, she usually gets one of two answers. The first is: "Isn't that in Oregon?" And the second is: "I drove by it once on Rt. 9, I think."
Her next stop was about as different from Ashland as it gets without leaving the country. As soon as Josie was legal, she packed a bag and moved to New York City to attend NYU. Somehow, she managed to squeeze in a little higher learning between bartending shifts and graduated with a BFA.

Well, all my misgivings from the first book are forgotten. Rather than a book of two teens going through a very angst-y love affair this book is about selflessness. And I loved it!
Helen knows the Furies are destroying the Scions lives. Rather than let her family and others endure the agony of experiencing the Furies every time they meet, and the fights that surely follow, Helen has made it her destiny to find the Furies in the Underworld and end the curse.
The problem is she has to Descend to the U/World every night and endure torment and torture to get to her goal. She isn't making any progress on her own and it's making her really sick.
