An infamous love, destined nevermore,
For death could not claim, the enchanting Lenore.

Cursed by the malevolent spirit of the Headless Horseman, Ireland Crane ventures to Manhattan in search of a way to break her soul crushing bond. Instead, she discovers the lines between fact and fiction are blurring once more. Croaking ravens. Telltale hearts. Could the works of Poe be coming to pass with handsome Wall Street Midas Ridley Peolte as their unwilling target?

She walks the Earth, a plague on mankind,
searching for he, her rotted heart doth pine.

Together, the two unknowingly release a dark force death itself could not tame. Surrounded by the unrelenting violence and mayhem they’ve unleashed, Ireland feels her control over the Horseman slipping. Before the beast within consumes her, she and her crew must follow the clues of the dead to right a centuries’ old wrong. Will it be enough to sate the Horseman’s appetite?

Hell hath no fury like a ghoul scorned.

My Review:

 It would be safe to say that this one was my favorite in the series. It’s also safe to say this is one of my favorite series. I can’t even explain how much I love this book. One of my favorite author’s is Edgar Allen Poe, I have read his stories and poems so many times, I can give great detail in explaining the stories, as weird of a guy as he was I found him and everything he wrote to be fascinating. When I read the synopsis for this book and realized that Ireland, Noah and Rip were going to be encountering the essence of Edgar I got chills. This story is once again told in the past and present, It was like reading two stories that came together as one at the end and I think it was so nicely written and extremely well down. The chapters are labels with either Edgar or Ridley so it’s never confusing as to who the story is about. The end gave me the goosebumps, I can’t wait for the next one.

Oh Noah can I love you anymore…yes, yes I can. I snort laughed quite a bit in this book and some parts I had to put down to stop giggling over what was said. This book I had a bit of a heartbreak and I might have got a bit misty eyed. Ireland is a complete badass and I absolutely adore her. I do feel bad for her but I also think a part of her might enjoy what she is.

This book has a touch of horror, a bit of romance, lots of amazing action and some really funny parts. The next book needs to come out ASAP. I can’t wait to see what happens and I loved that the themes are literary type themes. Oh my god this is just so well done!!! I can’t wait to see what happens next. Stacey once again wrote an amazing book/series that I just can’t get enough of.
