Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

His life depends on it.

I wanted to like this book. I really did....  It reminded me alot of the Vampire Diaries though. Isobel reminds me of Elena (just less of a bitch), and Varen reminds me of Damen. I didn't care for TVD, either. I wasn't miserable reading these books, but the magic wasn't there.


I don't know what exactly it was, but I just didn't find myself falling in love with the characters.

I like how Isobel stood up for Varen, but he just didn't do it for me. He just wasn't a very likeable character.

I think I'll wait for its sequel to come to my library instead of purchasing the sequel, "Enshadowed".
