There’s some kind of magic fairy dust in this woman’s words. There just has to be, because she did it to me again. Except Josephine Angelini didn’t write a story that kept me up past the midnight hour reading this time. No – this one was read within just a few hours because there was no way I was putting it down. Well, except for that whole “taking care of my kid” thing. The state kind of mandates that I do that. Spoilers may follow.
Helen is still a fantastic lead in my eyes. She’s strong, yet vulnerable, and is constantly striving to put her best foot forward. She’s always pushing and always fighting.
I didn’t even want to like Orion when we were first introduced to him, mostly because I was still swooning over Lucas after reading Starcrossed such a short time ago. That said…yeah. I loved him. He was a great addition to the characters that I already adored so much. Lucas is going through a dark time in Dreamless, but it’s understandable. At least, it was to me. By the end of the book, it’s safe to say that I loved him even more than I did after Starcrossed, and that’s saying something. I’m interested in seeing what’s being set up for Matt, because I got a sense that he’s going to play a larger role in the next book.
I really like the direction that this plot is going. The downfall of reading a book on its release date? Having to wait a freakin’ year for the next one. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how this all pans out!
