Verdict: Page Turner. Suspenseful. Horrific. Freaktastic. NEVERMORE will take you on a journey unlike you've ever experienced in a YA novel before. It's an emotional roller coaster taking you from happy to anticipatory, frightened to encouraged, sad to hopeful. Creagh takes its time developing the plot, giving the characters good motives for their actions and allowing you to feel like these are people whose actions and psychology you can comprehend. She does a great job of describing a brand-new, scary, chilling dimension, so much so that I actually saw a Noc in a nightmare shortly after finishing this novel.Read more ›
NEVERMORE brings a fresh and dark take to the young adult paranormal romance genre. Its original mythology centers on the works of Edgar Allen Poe, and the story is scarier than most, almost bordering on horror. Because of this, the book should appeal to dark fantasy fans. The novel's greatest strength, however, lies in the relationship between Isobel and Varen and its development. Instead of the instant, unexplained attraction seen in other books, their relationship grows over time and for realistic reasons. Character development for Varen is strong; he's more than just an angry goth boy and he becomes an appealing and desirable lead. Isobel was also likeable. Even though a cheerleader, she's depicted as quick, loyal, and not vapid: someone outside of the stereotype. The novel also had consistent pacing that had me turning pages to see what happened next, even with its long length.
Despite these strengths, there were some aspects that could be improved.Read more ›
I love to read and sometimes I have gone a bit too far reading crappy literature because I find some small little detail enchanting. Nevertheless, allow me to assure you that this is not the case with "Nevermore". I am in my early twenties now, but while growing up I fell in love with Poe so you can imagine how delighted I was to find the many references to his books and life spread through out this title.
Sometimes, since I read rather fast, I can't conceive to put a book down until I have finished it. I have to admit it made me rather anxious that I could not do the same with this book. The narrative during the first half of the book is tremendously slow so it took me many different sittings to progress but when I did progress the twists in the story were capturing and I could not stop thinking about it while not reading it, always wondering about what was really going on and what was about to happen.
I also found interesting that although the physical connection and encounters between the protagonist were not strong, the psychological and emotional bond between them grew steadily and was able to capture and move me deeply.
If you are an adult worried about some of the scenes imbedded in some of the paranormal romance books you wont have that problem with this book at all. All the same if you are a young adult like me and enjoy the physical tension emanating from fantasy and paranormal novels, you wont be disappointed either.
This book is intensely romantic but it is also smart and I think it speaks a lot about how damaging some prejudices can be. I think most parents would have a great time reading this title -probably moms would enjoy it more though-.Read more ›

So few books these days are truly romantic. This is one of the rare ones that doesn't rely on physical attraction but actually creates an emotional bond between the characters. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Shadowswept
