Review: Nevermore / Nevermore Bk 1 / Kelly Creagh

Synopsis (Goodreads)

Cheerleader 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. 


My Take

Nevermore was a surprisingly good book. Although this book is 543 pages, it seems much shorter because you want to keep turning the pages!

Cheerleader Isobel is paired up with goth/emo Varen for a school paper for an English project. She's completely horrified to have to work with Varen. Varen suggests they do their English paper on Edgar Allan Poe- which he knows a lot about. While working with Varen, Isobel realizes there is far more to him than he portrays.

I really like how Edgar Allan Poe's work is intertwined within this story. Toward the end of the book, it can get a bit confusing.

There is no happily ever after at the end of this book. Because of this, I can't wait until the next book!
