Title: The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters

Expected publication: April 16, 2019

Publisher: Amulet Books

 

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!”

Guys, I am really excited for this book. I have an obsession with Edgar Allan Poe. My most prized physical possession is a collection of Poe’s works published in 1912. It is beautiful. My dog is named Poe. I have plans to visit Poe’s grave in Baltimore. I. Love. Poe. When I spotted this book posted on Metal Phantasm Reads I got little hearts for eyes. I absolutely cannot wait to read this book!
