Varen Nethers is trapped in a perilous dream world -- 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.
The Poe Toaster.
Oh wait, I have an even better one!
Don’t give me that look. I’m sure I‘m not the only one who imagined this.
Starting Enshadowed was a huge mistake. And before you go all berserk on me, no I don’t mean that it’s a bad book. On the contrary, it’s a very good book. What actually made me say this is the ending. That god forsaken ending. Then again, Nevermore had a frustrating ending as well, so I guess I should have seen it coming.
What bothered me about the ending, besides the obvious things - those who have read the book know what things I’m talking about - is the fact that book three will be out in fucking 2013. 2013. What the hell? That seems like a lifetime away.
Why couldn’t I wait until all three books are out, and then start the series? Why? Because Nevermore was too tempting. Now look at me paying the price. Enjoy watching me beg and suffer.
Buy it. Join the suffering.
The reason why I’m not giving it five stars is Varen’s absence. Isobel is great, but not great enough to cover up his absence. The story was also lacking at some points. Too much parenting going on, not enough magic. This got me a bit bored.
And the ending. That fucking ending. Someone please hand me a gun.
