A page-turning psychological mystery that is equal parts horror, humor, and romance, Nevermore is the story of Varen—a Poe fan and Goth—and Isobel—a cheerleader and unlikely heroine. When an English Lit. project pairs the two, Isobel finds herself swept into Varen’s world, one that he has created in his notebook and in his mind, one where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel slowly learns that dreams and words can be much more powerful than she’d ever imagined. As labels of “Goth” and “cheerleader” fade away, Isobel and Varen slip into a consuming romance, braced against the ever-clearer horror that the most chilling realities are those within our own minds. When Isobel has a single chance to rescue Varen from the shadows of his nightmares, will she be able to save him—and herself?
OK, so this book was a little hard to get into, but I pressed through & found that it was well worth the few opening pages that I thought were going to kill me! The dynamics of the characters & the social scene of high school were dead on from what I remember! Poe has never been someone that I could get into reading, but through this book I found myself intrigued & curious about some of his works. My only issue with the book is that it's book 1 of a series!!!! UGH! The way it ended.....grrrr. BUT I will be watching for the next one!
