Poe: Nevermore - E-Book

Poe: Nevermore is an Edgar Allan Poe-inspired thriller in which a young woman must race against time and death to save those she loves while struggling with depression, a new relationship complicated by her past, and an abusive former foster-father. Elenora Allison Poe is twenty-four years old, drowning in debt and depression, and very alone, having been orphaned at the age of two and raised in an unloving household. Suffering from insomnia and PTSD from a traumatic experience seven years before, Poe keeps everyone at arm's length. Then, she meets homicide detective Caleb Frost and her life changes dramatically. Frost sees Poe's brokenness in perfect clarity and sympathizes with her. However, just when Poe is starting to let him in, she discovers a horrible truth: she is the sole direct descendant of Edgar Allan Poe, inheriting not only the last name of one of the world's most famous poets, but also a terrible family curse that takes the form of Edgar Allan Poe's most haunting tales. If Poe cannot recognize the curse unfolding in time, it will destroy the lives of all those close to her and annihilate her sanity. Nevermore is the first in a six-book series that follows Poe's trials and the curse she bears. It was named a Finalist for CBR's 2013 Clue Awards for new Mystery/Suspense/Thriller novels, and earned First Place in CBR's 2013 Paranormal Awards in the Contemporary Gothic category. Chanticleer Book Reviews and Media has called Nevermore "the type of psychological horror that locking the doors and windows and reading with the lights on will not keep out" and acclaims the combination of tension and complex characters in the novel, including powerful antagonists. "There is a Gothic, smouldering shroud across this book, as if Anne Rice or Poppy Z Brite have infected the writing," says Self-Publishing Review.
