Publisher: Atheneum Books for Young Readers
Author Website: www.kellycreagh.com
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.

Varen is changed. And now Isobel must face a new adversary—one who also happens to be her greatest love.
Description from Amazon

Why I can't wait? 
I adored Nevermore.  I thought it was so original, so well-written, and so much creepy fun.  This Richmond girl loves Edgar Allan Poe, thought I also have a soft spot in my heart for this book since I won this in a contest from Wastepaper Prose long before I became a reviewer.  Nevermore ends on such an enormous cliffhanger too!  Where exactly *is* Varen?  Is he alright?  Does he still write in purple ink?  Can Isobel rescue him yet again?  Oh my goodness, you see why I need this book.
