Summary: 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?
My Review: This is the second book in my favorite series. I was worried that it was going to be boring considering the end of the first book, but it most definitely was not. No, no, fret not I’m not going to spoil it, but it was far from boring. This series makes me so damn happy, I can’t even describe it. I gotta tone down my happy for this review other wise it will be a hot mess. *deep breaths*
So unless you’ve read the first one, you’re gonna have no idea what on earth I’m talking about half the time. So everyone should go read the first one and love it as much as I do.
This book is pretty much a filler book between the first and the third. That’s not saying it’s not a good one, I’m just saying that it kind of set up the rest of the story and I’m totally fine with that. I’m sad that I didn’t get to see Varen as much in this one, but y’know, what can ya do? But of course, when we finally get to see Varen, he has changed and he breaks my heart. That’s what happens to all my book boyfriends. I’m used to such activities at this point.
This book honestly made me so much more excited for Oblivion, which I have to wait a life time to finally read. I think I can make it though. I’ll get through this long long wait.
Again, I know that this one is a short review, like my last, but short and sweet is good sometimes. I’ll be posting my monthly favorites this Sunday, and hopefully another review before then. We shall see, we shall see. I hope you’re all having a fantabulous day and happy reading!
