Summary of the Book:

Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family—the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead Artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: “Let them see me!”

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to say that I have been a fan of Poe’s for a very long time. So when I came cross this book and it has him a teenage at the beginning of his creative phase I had to have it. The centers around Poe wanting to write the dark works he is known for and fighting against his family and muse to keep his sanity. He tries to escape all of that by going to college. The dark and creepy tale is perfect for any Poe fan and those discovering him for the very first time.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
