True love takes a twisted turn in the second book of this modern gothic romance trilogy channeling 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 has also now 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.(l

My Thoughts:
If you have not yet read Nevermore, go run to the bookstore/library and get a copy. Yes, it is that awesome.

Enshadowed takes place two months after the end of Nevrmore. Isobel is carefully devising her plan to get to Baltimore and find the Poe Toaster so that she can save Varen. But she is not alone in her planning. Funny and clever, Gwen is the ultimate best friend. She  goes out of her way to help Isobel achieve her goal. 

Isobel does manage to reenter the dream world. But it is darker this time, more twisted. As for the ending…wow. It was completely unexpected. 

I have read a couple sequels this year, and they have all been disappointed. But, Enshadowed was amazing. It was dark and suspenseful and, most impartantly, it was SO worth the wait.
