This book takes too long to get to the good parts (I literally had to make myself read most of this book), and then the intense stuff happens, and we are right back at square one, the same place Isobel started at the beginning of the book... So wasn't worth the wait to get it.

The second in the Nevermore trilogy, this book suffers a bit from sequel syndrome. The plot feels a bit stretched out, particularly as very little happens that is a major plot twist. The novel is also much lighter on the Poe references and elements which made the novel less ominous, although regular appearances from Pinfeathers did make things a bit better. However, the most difficult element of the novel is that Varen is so absent. His Goth darkness really helped balance out Isobel's cheerleader lightness in the last novel and, while Isobel has grown in this book and her friend, Gwen, does bring the sarcasm, the book suffers from his absence. That said, I think the book is enjoyable for what it is. But if you're desperate for more of Isobel and Varen, I'd suggest holding off on reading this book until the final book in the trilogy comes out and then reading them together, because many of the same plot threads that were unresolved at the end of Nevermore remain so at the end of Enshadowed.

Loved it ! I forgot how beautiful Kelly Creagh's writing is. This was darker than Nevermore and of course more FRUSTERATING because of well... don't want to give it away : ). Here's hoping the 2013 release date for the 3rd installement sticks !!

I just finnished this book and it was NOT worth the wait! i was so disapointed. 3/4ths of the book is Isobel preparing to go to the Poe Toaster. The ending leaves you in the same place as where you started. The book was extremley drawn out, confussing, and boring, but i absolutley loved the first one.
