Summery-
It is here, the war that everyone has been preparing for for over three thousand years. Now it is time for Helen to step up and realize who she is, the reincarnation of Helen of Troy. With new powers that come as a result of here actions in Dreamless, can Helen defeat the Twelve? Or more importantly, can she stay sane long enough to be able to even fight the Gods? When truths come out and the ancient and modern world clash, is anybody really safe?


My Thoughts-
This book was amazing, however it was too short. Throughout the entire book I felt like something more could be explained. Or what was explained could be elaborated more on. However, Josephine did an excellent job with what she wrote. Everything made more sense in this book than any of the others, (Which is what she wanted to do, I think), and was beautifully crafted so everyone (well, almost everyone) got their happy ending.

Reading through this series it was exciting to see how each person changed and developed, even though some did not. Characters people didn't like very much get some justice behind them and end themselves with very noble acts.

The only true problem I had while reading this story was the epilogue. It felt way to long and that the author was trying to rap up a story that wasn't completely closed. I feel that if she wanted to Josephine Angelini could write another novel that explains more of what ends up happening to everybody. Some parts I was okay with the wrap up (Jerry and Kate) and others I wasn't (Lucas's situation).


Overall I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.


Hope to have you reading again soon,
