Teaser Tuesday: Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!  

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini.

Dreamless - Macmillan

Don’t waste a perfectly good act of heroism with a bad one of your own!
-- Chapter 8
Demigods don’t get the flu or the sniffles. They go mad.
-- Chapter 9

As far as sequels go this one is delivering on its promises. I liked Starcrossed well enough and Dreamless improves on most of the things that I criticised in the first book. Well, apart from the fact that everyone is too busy suffering to do some maths, but I suppose that would defeat the purpose of one of the major plot points. Ancient mythology with a modern twist? Sign me up anytime.

In case you were wondering: The cover in this post is the UK edition. If you know the US cover, tell me which one you like better. I’m still undecided.
