Series: Nevermore (Trilogy, Book #2)
True love takes a twisted turn in the second book of this modern gothic romance trilogy channeling the dark brilliance of Edgar Allan Poe.
Varen Nethers is trapped in a perilous dreamworld—a treacherous and desolate realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel Lanley, plagued by strange visions and haunted by the nightmares of Varen’s creation, is the only one who can save him.
Isobel knows that her only hope lies within a Baltimore cemetery. There, in the early morning of Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday, a mysterious stranger known as the “Poe Toaster” will make his annual homage at the legendary poet’s grave.
Only the Poe Toaster holds the key to the way between worlds. But great dangers lie ahead for Isobel. An ancient evil, draped in veils of white, is watching, challenging her for Varen’s affections. When Isobel finally finds Varen, he is no longer the quiet and brooding boy who once captivated her, but a dark force, powerful and malevolent.
Could Isobel’s greatest love also be her greatest adversary?
LOVE! I am flying through this series and love it so much!
I’ve been enjoying this series so much and after finishing this second to last book, it makes me want to read the other right away despite me knowing I’m going to finish it extremely quickly and be sad it’s over!
It’s one of those books you look forward to reading all day and when you do get a chance to read it, it’s like you can’t stop.
Warning: This is a dangerous book to read at night because you will not sleep until it’s over!
I think this book flowed perfectly from the first book in the series and I think it has such a cool concept between real life and the dream world.
Butterfly Rating: 2 Stars
Varen was mostly in the dreamworld for this part so it was hard to have an butterflies come when he isn’t interacting with her.
Book Boyfriend Rating: 3 stars
You definitely got to see a darker side of Varen’s mind which affected the book boyfriend rating but I have no doubt that in the next book he can bring his rating up.
Age Recommendation: 13+
