Book Review: Oblivion
Book 3 in the Nevermore Trilogy
AUTHOR: Kelly Creagh
PUBLISHED: July 28th, 2015
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
PREMISE: Isobel goes after Varen in the nightmarish dream world of Edgar Allen Poe.
MY REVIEW: It has always saddened me that Nevermore has never gotten the recognition it deserved. Yes, I give, it is cheesy paranormal romance. But it's like all the good things about paranormal romance and none of the annoying things.
There is a good plot. There is a solid romance (that is not unhealthy, thank you). There is solid characterization and character growth. There is no villifying the pretty popular girl, no love triangle nonsense, no bad boy who is a jerk but you love him despite him being a jerk nonsense. Literally all the things that can annoy me about paranormal romances sometimes, are nonexistent here. If you ever need to know how to make excellent YA paranormal romance without all the traps that the genre can often fall into, just pick up this series and follow its example.
This was a good, solid ending to a good, solid trilogy. I'm sorry to see it go, but I sincerely hope we see more of Creagh in the future.
WHO SHOULD READ: Twilight fans, Paranormal Romance fans, Edgar Allen Poe fans
