TITLE: Of Monsters and Madness
AUTHOR: Jessica Verday
PUB DATE: September 9, 2014
PAGE COUNT: 276 pages
AGE RANGE: 12 and up
GENRE: Romance > Historical Retelling 

A romantic, historical retelling of classic Gothic horror featuring Edgar Allan Poe and his character Annabel Lee, from a New York Times best-selling author. The first in a new series.

Annabel Lee is summoned from Siam to live with her father in 1820's Philadelphia shortly after her mother's death, but an unconventional upbringing makes her repugnant to her angry, secretive father. Annabel becomes infatuated with her father's assistant Allan, who dabbles in writing when he's not helping with medical advancements. But in darker hours, when she's not to be roaming the house, she encounters the devilish assistant Edgar, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Allan, and who others insist doesn't exist.

A rash of murders across Philadelphia, coupled with her father's strange behavior, leads Annabel to satisfy her curiosity and uncover a terrible truth: Edgar and Allan are two halves of the same person - and they are about to make the crimes detailed in Allan's stories come to life. Unless Annabel stops them.

  1. I love that it's based off of an Edgar Allen Poe poem; that's a very interesting concept, and I want to see how the story is retold.

  2. I think one of the reasons I want to read of Monsters and Madness is because it's a retelling of Edgar Allen Poe's writing. The other reason would be because I don't read too many creepy stories and I definitely should! I guess I'm just picky :p Thanks Beckie!

  3. I think this sounds awesome! I always liked EAP and his short story, The Tell Tale Heart has been a big favorite :) thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks so much for the giveaway. Some books are meant to be read in print copy and this is one of them. Just look at that amazing cover art! Crossing fingers, toes and eyes! LOL

  5. The cover really intrigues me! At first, I thought the girl was levitating and it definitely made me look twice! If a book makes me look more than once at the cover, I just have to read it!

  6. Edgar Allen Poe is the reason I want to read this story! My favorite Poe story is Fall of the Hpuse of Usher but I love TheBlack Cat too!

    Because I love all Poe stories!!

    thank you :)

  8. After reading Bethany Griffin's Masque of the Red Death retelling and Kelly Creagh's Nevermore series (at least the first two books, the third one's STILL not out :C), I'm intrigued by all Poe retellings, even if I don't love the original stories...

  9. Mary DeBorde
    I've loved Poe since I was an adolescent - my mom had an old collection/anthology of his stories & poems. My favorite was The Balloon Hoax!! :)

  10. First of all I love the cover and I love gothic. My favorite Poe story is The Tell-Tale Heart. I once memorized the story and gave my rendition for a project in English class.

  11. I always liked The Pit and the Pendulem and The Raven.

  12. I've read the Annabel Lee poem one day in English, and I really liked it, this book should be intereseting

  13. The reason I want to read this book is mostly because of Edgar Allen Poe.

  14. My favorite Poe is A Cask of Amontillado. It's frightening and kind of funny at the same time. Thanks

  15. The cover of this is amazing and it makes me very intrigued to read the story
