First, let me say I love Edgar Allen Poe, his poems, the whole mystery surrounding him. Love him. So when I saw that this book incorporated his works and his life, I had to read it. The synopsis of this book didn't do the book justice at all. It was nothing like I expected from reading the back of the book. This book sucked you in the beginning with the normal YA high school teenage angst and setting then sucked you in in a different direction halfway through. Kelly created this vitual paranormal, supernatural world and characters on top of the real world. Her writing style is so vivid and beautiful I had worlds and dimensions and creatures appearing in front of me like a movie. I couldn't put this book down.
There was only one thing about this book that I didn't like. The Ending. I suppose there will be a sequel to this book. I don't usually have much patience to wait for a sequel to come out. I usually like to have the next book ready and waiting so I can finish one and go on to the other. But I will definitely have to get the next book when it comes out.
