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 PoeCheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look. Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares. His life depends on it.

"Does he sleep?"(Prolog) Es ist ja immer wie ein bisschen Überraschungsei schütteln, lauschen, öffnen, Schokolade ignorieren, Kern brechen und-Wenn man ein Buch nur aufgrund dessen zur Hand nimmt, weil einem ein einziges Wort anspringt. In diesem Fall war es der Titel allein schon der Alarmsirenen ...

5.0 Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
I forgot just how much I love this book until rereading it. Varen Nethers is just... Nevermore is based around Edgar Allan Poe's work which is a serious plus for me because who doesn't like the gothic romance and horror stories he wrote? Our MC is Isobel Lanley, the popular, blond haired and blue e...

I didn't like Nevermore. No, scratch that. I hated Nevermore.Reading the blurb, I figured this book would be awesome. I am a E.A. Poe fangirl, and hearing all the hype about this book made me want it that much more. I thought the concept was interesting- but it wasn't pieced together well enough for...

4.0 Nevermore
Man! Why did somebody not warn me that this book doesn’t end here? That the most MAJOR issue of the tale is unresolved? That the reader would be left somewhat sad and desolate at the end and almost devoid of hope? I raged on through to the end, desperate to see Isobel conquer, yet found a door slamm...
