Synopsis:

A page-turning psychological mystery that is equal parts horror, humor, and romance, Nevermore is the story of Varen—a Poe fan and Goth—and Isobel—a cheerleader and unlikely heroine. When an English Lit. project pairs the two, Isobel finds herself swept into Varen’s world, one that he has created in his notebook and in his mind, one where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel slowly learns that dreams and words can be much more powerful than she’d ever imagined. As labels of “Goth” and “cheerleader” fade away, Isobel and Varen slip into a consuming romance, braced against the ever-clearer horror that the most chilling realities are those within our own minds. When Isobel has a single chance to rescue Varen from the shadows of his nightmares, will she be able to save him—and herself?

this book is great..
at first... you will think...it's worse to feel in love with a hooligan than a vampire...but then if that hooligan is not that dark, morbid and bad... but instead gentleman to the bone, serious but with a good sense of humor, remembers your favorites, stick to his words, hides into mystery but is really really handsome, and suffered a not so good family drama...would you not fall in love?

i find this book a lil bit thrilling, engaging and interesting. The characters developed and emerged slowly, but in a reallly really good way, keeping up with the thrill given to readers who can't get enough. The book is filled with forbidden romance, action, i could almost consider this as vampire tale, though it's not. The plot is wonderfully written, and the story is just wonderful, especially as it depicts Edgar allan poe and the reason behind his death. i also love to mention, that Varen is the kind of guy that makes you hate at first but would later be lured to his charisma and attitude.
I like the book and wish that their romance would develop into something greater. this is a cliff-hanger and i can't wait to read the sequel.

Isobel has a great life: she is a cheerleader, her boyfriend is a star on the football team, her friends are great (members of the screw squad). That changes once she is partnered with the weird Goth guy, Varen, in English class to do a project on Edgar Allen Poe.

Varen is mysterious, and he doesn't seem too interested in Isobel. However, Isobel finds herself drawn to him, especially after she takes a peek at his notebook, only to find it filled with strange stories and drawings. Strange things start to happen both when she is alone and when she's with Varen. She can't tell whether it is a dream, or reality.

NEVERMORE was so captivating. I have never read anything like it before. It was really fast-paced and intriguing;

Varen...he's so something....and Isobel is just amazing..really beautiful...

i just finish reading..it's thrilling..though at the end i expect it to be just what everybody expects...but then..don't despair..because there is a sequel..oh..i can't wait..
