ENSHADOWED by Kelly Creagh
AHHH!!  I'm so so so excited to see the release of this cover!  I absolutely loved NEVERMORE.  It's a fantastically dark romance between a goth and a cheerleader and--bonus--it revolves around this dark dream world of Edgar Allen Poe.  I blew me away.  I don't think NEVERMORE gets nearly enough credit.  I checked it out from the library, read it, then immediately went out and bought it.  If that isn't book love then I don't know what is.  ---The truth---  I'm not crazy about this cover.  NEVERMORE's was better.  And I'm not crazy about the title either.  Whatever.  I will still be purchasing this on January 17th of 2012!  Can't wait.  Oh, I'm going to make it be January's pick for the 'Reading Circle' too. 

Here's the summary for ENSHADOWED:  While Varen remains a prisoner in the dream-world, Isobel is haunted by his memory. He appears to her in her dreams and soon, even in her waking life. But is she just imagining it? Isobel knows she must find a way back to Varen. She makes plans to go to Baltimore. There, she confronts the figure known throughout the world as the Poe Toaster—the same dark man who once appeared to Isobel in her dreams, calling himself “Reynolds.”  Isobel succeeds in interrupting the Toaster’s ritual and, in doing so, discovers a way to return to the dream-world. Soon, she finds herself swept up in a realm which not only holds remnants of Poe’s presence, but has also now taken on the characteristics of Varen’s innermost self. It is a dark world comprised of fear, terror, and anger.  When Isobel once more encounters Varen, she finds him changed. With his mind poisoned by the dream world, he becomes a malevolent force, bent on destroying all—even himself. Now Isobel must face a new adversary, one who also happens to be her greatest love.

And, of course, I think you should defiantly check out my review for NEVERMORE and Kelly Creagh's website: www.kellycreagh.com/

Well, I'm definitely going to read Nevermore (thanks to your review) so I'll add this one to the ever growing list too. I didn't read the synopsis, though; I want to read Nevermore first.

I couldn't agree with you more about Nevermore! I picked it up soon after it came out and absolutely fell in love with it. It was one of those sneaky reads for me where I didn't realize how totally and completely I loved it until I turned the last page and felt an immediate loss cause it was over! wow, can't wait for Enshadowed.

I also loved Nevermore! I didn't know that they released this cover yet, but I have to agree with you - Nevermore's was definitely better. Hopefully the novel under the cover will live up to the task! :)
