True love takes a twisted turn in the second book of this modern gothic romance trilogy that channels the dark brilliance of Edgar Allan Poe.
While Varen remains a prisoner in a perilous dream world where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life, Isobel travels to Baltimore to confront the dark figure known throughout the world as the Poe Toaster. This man, the same man who once appeared to Isobel in her dreams and abandoned her in Varen’s nightmare world, holds the key to saving Varen.
But when Isobel discovers a way to return to this dream world, she finds herself swept up in a realm that not only holds remnants of Edgar Allan Poe’s presence, but one that has taken on the characteristics of Varen’s innermost self. It is a dark world of fear, terror, and anger.
When Isobel once more encounters Varen, she finds him changed. And now Isobel must face a new adversary—one who also happens to be her greatest love.

THIS SERIES FEEDS MY ANGST METER
LOVE THIS ESP. WHEN SHE PUNCHED REYNOLDS AND THEN THAT PLOT TWIST! WE NEED A MOVIE! All 3 BOOKS SHOULD BE ADAPTED
Kind of a disappointment
I have been dying for this second book to come out and when it finally did I bought it right away. But I got really busy with moving (which actually never happened). But I finally read it within these last few days and found myself quite disappointed. 3/4 of the story is all about getting to the dream world. Then when she finally gets there not much happens at all and then the end of the book. I was hoping for a resolve considering how long the book dragged on about getting there. I am hoping that the third book will be way better. But I have to say that the first is by far the best thus far.
I thought this book would have been a little more interesting. To be quite honest, nothing exciting really happened, unlike in Nevermore. The first book left high expectations which this, in my opinion, did not succeed like I'd hoped it would. The ending could've been better too, with all do respect.
