This was a well-written and fun story. I mean, what an AWESOME idea for a storyline. Poe is one of those characters that you will never forget - so "real" and one I could easily relate to. I really like the character Frost and the adventure that the author takes us on throughout the whole story. Very impressive and I can't wait to read more of this series.

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Poe: Nevermore by author Rachel M. Martens is a fascinating thriller, the first in a six-book series, inspired by the life and writings of Edgar Allan Poe. Elenora Allison Poe is a young aspiring writer for whom life has not been at all easy. The death of her family when she was only a child and the abuses she suffered throughout her teenage years turned Poe into a frightened young lady, suffering from PTSD and insomnia. When she meets an intriguing young detective, her life takes an unexpected ...more

I received an e-copy of the book from Story Cartel for review purposes.


I like the concept of a woman named Poe with a family curse related to Edgar Allen Poe. It's just that I'm pushing 40 and this isn't exactly targeted to my age group. I feel too old for books that have severely damaged, mentally ill, characters with horrible childhoods.

I know it's fiction and all. It was hard for me to believe that Frost comes out of nowhere and instantly wants to help Poe, and be with her.

I had issues with

I received an e-copy of the book from Story Cartel for review purposes.

Rachel M. Martens horror story was riveting. I wanted to read it because I love the poetry and stores of Edgar Allen Poe. Yes, I wanted to get to the end, but I couldn't keep reading because the story was so horrible, which the author intended, I know. My biggest problem with the book was the repetition. The descriptions of the characters reminded me of the conventions in classic epic poems such as the "Odyssey." If I had to

Poe, Nevermore by Rachel M. Martens I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of the few books that I can say I truly lost sleep over. Not for being scared but for wanting to know what happened next, and then next. Yes it is in the thriller/paranormal genre and it is under the umbrella with the Romantic movement of the 19th c. as our dear Edgar Allen Poe wrote in. It starts out light enough, narrating from the main character’s voice as she heads into work a

This was a free download from storycartel.com, for my review.

Several reviews give you details from the book. So my review won't duplicate them and no spoilers.

The awesome covers, what grabbed my attention, along with the brief preview and what caused me to download it.

This was the first book, I've read with a paranormal feel to it and I liked the tie in with Edgar Allan Poe. It's so well written, Rachel grabs and holds your attention. Keeps you reading, excitingly focused on Poe and Frost's r

Poe is a young woman who has been through enough to kill most people, but she is still alive. She feels dead inside, yet she continues to push forward as best she can. Meeting Frost starts to change her life at a time that she has to have someone, or she will die. Then things get complicated beyond what they already were. Poe is under the curse that effected Edgar Allen Poe, unless she is just totally out of her mind from the abuse and things that she had been through. Her physical pain toleranc ...more

I got a review copy of Poe:Nevermore from Story Cartel (storycartel.com). I loved it! Poe has so many layers, you're always finding out something new. Her interaction with Frost kept drawing me deeper into the story, and all the back story was as compelling as it was chilling. With all the death and gore, I'm impressed that Rachel kept a glimmer of hope for the characters running throughout. The climatic scene was awesome, and the setup for the next story makes that one a must-read also. Nicely ...more

I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

I really like paranormal stories, so it was no surprise that I liked this book. It is well written and fast. But I have to point out that at some points it was a little harsh and "violent". Of course even the synopsis of the book prepares you for that, but still I would like less hard descriptions.
