Waiting on Wednesday (9) Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to spotlight any upcoming releases you are eagerly anticipating!
This week was an easy choice — I just read the first book Nevermore this past week and absolutely loved it! I am in love with these two and the world Creagh has created — creepy and unique with terrifying creatures and nightmares and two realistic lead characters. Even better, just like the first book, this one looks like it will be over 400 pages. It may look a bit twilight-esque but this series by Creagh has absolutely nothing to do with the recent trend of vampires, fallen angels or Greek myths. The only bad thing is that I have to wait until January 24th 2012 before I can get my hands on it!
‘While Varen remains a prisoner in the dream-world, Isobel is haunted by his memory. He appears to her in her dreams and soon, even in her waking life. But is she just imagining it? Isobel knows she must find a way back to Varen. She makes plans to go to Baltimore. There, she confronts the figure known throughout the world as the Poe Toaster—the same dark man who once appeared to Isobel in her dreams, calling himself “Reynolds.”
Isobel succeeds in interrupting the Toaster’s ritual and, in doing so, discovers a way to return to the dream-world. Soon, she finds herself swept up in a realm which not only holds remnants of Poe’s presence, but has also now taken on the characteristics of Varen’s innermost self. It is a dark world comprised of fear, terror, and anger.
When Isobel once more encounters Varen, she finds him changed. With his mind poisoned by the dream world, he becomes a malevolent force, bent on destroying all—even himself. Now Isobel must face a new adversary, one who also happens to be her greatest love.’
