Publisher's summary

On the banks of Lake Drummond, on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp, there is a tree in the shape of a woman.

One dark, moonlit night, two artists met at the Lake Drummond Hotel, built directly on the borderline of North Carolina and Virginia. One was a young woman with the ability to see spirits trapped in trees and stone, anchored to the earth beyond their years. Her gift was to draw them, and then to set them free. The other was a dark man, haunted by dreams and visions that brought him stories of sadness and pain, trapped in a life between the powers he sensed all around him and a mundane existence attended by failure. They were Eleanore MacReady, Lenore, to her friends, and a young poet named Edgar Allan Poe, who traveled with a crow that was his secret, and almost constant companion, a bird named Grimm for the talented brothers of fairy-tale fame.

Their meeting drew them together in vision, and legend, and pitted their strange powers and quick minds against the depths of the Dismal Swamp itself, ancient legends, and time.

Once, upon a shoreline dreary, there was a tree. This is her story.

Creepy chiller will give you goosebumps!

If you could sum up Nevermore in three words, what would they be?

Creepy, gloomy, atmospheric.

What did you like best about this story?

The setting. Absolutely brilliant, gave me the creeps all the way through. Perhaps it was the creepy swamp filled surroundings but centainly set a very creepy backdrop for what was a very well written story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes towards the end with Grimm.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was creeped out, which doesn't happen with the vast majority of horror novels I read so this certainly worked.

Any additional comments?

This is the second book by author David Niall Wilson I have listened to (first being Ancient Eyes) and I have throughly enjoyed both of them. In addition the Narrator Gigi Shane was really enjoyable, she had a soft slow soothing voice which worked well for this story.*This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.
