Nevermore

Nevermore - Kelly Creagh Well, I've had to abandon several books this week - at best, this is totally my fault. My brain has been reduced to mush due to some goings-on in my personal life. Very few books are sticking just now, nothing over-complicated, conceptualized, or long winded.I want to say it's because I needed light hearted fluff, but I'm reluctant to call this book fluff. It was really...damn...good.Nevermore by Kelly Creagh was exactly what I wanted to read this week. It had it all. It starts out as a high school teen book with a burgeoning romance between two people completely ill suited for each other. Throw in a project about Edgar Allan Poe and the book takes on a Gothic overtone that pleases this cryptic girl to the hilt.Added to this mix is bad/goth boy... Varen... oh, Varen, Varen, Varen... Varen makes this whole book insanely readable, especially when paired with good girl cheerleader, Isobel, as a potential love interest... And Varen is the new Patch (and Patch is the new Jace...soo)... Varen and his black clothing and his elegant hands and his green eyed gaze... Varen is so sensual to read. That. It. Hurts. Varen is the character you read because you need to read a sexy delightful scamp. Besides the physical description of this gorgeous goth there is a plus side... he has a brain... good goth this beautiful man has a brain!He's sublime to read. Especially if you are in the mood to fall in love with a new character.But, Varen aside... there is much more to this book. There is a creepy, mysterious plot that builds up for a large chunk of the book. In truth, I loved and hated that the reveal to this world took sooo long to get to. It was frustrating that I didn't know through a large chunk of the book what was going on, but I didn't completely hate that either. What did get to me was the large portion of the book spent in the dreamworld... it was convoluted and disjointed... exactly what I don't want to be reading right now. That said, it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. I suppose dreamworld is supposed to be weird and confusing. In that case it works. Well.I am in love with this book. Fervently. But, I have to give it a 4.5 of 5 stars... because the confusing dreamworld bits. I'm sure that part of the reading is just me.- review courtesy of www.bibliopunkk.net
