Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

There was a pretty little novel I read a few months ago that I absolutely loved: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. I've been eagerly awaiting the second novel Enshadowed since then, and you can imagine my face when I realized it was pushed back from January 2012 to August 2012, two years after the release of Nevermore. You know the classic D: for expressing sadness on the Internet? That does not even begin to cover it. Still excited, though. I will be patient (and it can be a going-away gift instead, since I expect to be moving away for college around that time)!

 Enshadowed (Nevermore, #2)Enshadowed
by Kelly Creagh
August 28, 2012
560 pages (hardback)

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.

  2. OMG I cannot wait until this book comes out. I finished NEVERMORE a couple of weeks ago and it was freakin' aMAYzing. There characters were so lifelike, I feel for them hook line and sinker.

    August is SO far away!!
