Nevermore
Nevermore | Kelly Creagh
7 posts | 29 read | 12 to read
And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore! -- from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe At once an homage to one of America's greatest writers and 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 a Lit. project pairs the two together, Isobel finds herself steadily 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 can be much more powerful than she'd ever expected, and that pain and despair come in all shades. As labels of "goth" and "cheerleader" fade away, she sees more in Varen than a tall, pale outcast, and a consuming romance is braced against the ever-clearer horror that the most terrifying realities are those within our own minds. When Isobel has a single chance to rescue Varen from the shadows of his own nightmares, will she be able to save him -- and herself?

I love a good YA series & Poe's creepiness. Bonus, this book was written by a librarian that lives in my city & the main characters 'live' in this city, Louisville KY. (Yes I wear shoes and have all of my teeth. Did I miss 1?) Varen is your typical goth, emo kid. Isobel is your typical cheerleader until she meets Varen. Creagh spins a tale from Poe's quote: All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. #keeplouisvilleweird #dejavu

vkois88 Whaaat?? How did I not know about this? #Stacked 12mo
WhatThePuck @vkois88 it's a trilogy. I was about to do reviews for the other 2. Loved books 1 & 2, but book 3 fell flat. It also took 8 months longer to publish than originally expected. The publisher didn't like her original ending and made her rewrite it. Which is why I don't think book 3 hit it's mark. 😔 12mo
vkois88 Oh no!!! Well I'll definitely have to try to track down the first two, at least 12mo

WhatThePuck @vkois88 Book 3 is still worth the read, just be guarded. Lol. 12mo
vkois88 Gotcha lol 12mo
CatLass007 Yes, you forgot this one: “How do you pronounce capital of Kentucky?” 12mo
CatLass007 Also, how close a relative is your spouse? 12mo
WhatThePuck @CatLass007 Frankfort? Only 1, that I know of. Kentucky has some of the strictest laws concerning what you're allowed to do with family. One bad gene can ruin your reputation forever. 🤣 #themoreyouknow 12mo

Mehso-so

Like I totally need to stop reading guilty pleasure trash. Fer sure. In this like another Twilight rip-off, I like pretend I'm this popular blonde cheerleader with this like homophobic, abusive jock boyfriend but I like fall for this like this goth guy and stuff who reminds me a lot like Chris Angel. Anyway, there is like this Edgar Allen Poe tie-in and fantasy world and stuff. So like read it because like it's true about teens and stuff!

Dusty, empty shelves because I'm moving and most of the books are packed up! ? This series was a classic case of "don't judge a book by its cover". I really enjoyed the Poe themes and subtle nods to him throughout the story. Overall it's a good "fluff"/binge read/YA series but it's NOT paranormal erotica as the cover art would lead you to believe. ?

Love the Nevermore series! Shamefully, I've only read the first book and I need to get back to it. Also, it appears I have a small infatuation with Mr. Edgar Allan Poe... @outofprint
