Poe: Nevermore

"Nevermore" is the first in a paranormal thriller series following the adventures of a young woman descended from Edgar Allen Poe as she grapples with a tragic past coming back to haunt her, navigating a new romance, and facing a deadly curse inherited from the master of the macabre himself.
Elenora Allison Poe is twenty-four years old, drowning in debt and depression, and very alone, having been orphaned at the age of two and raised in an unloving household. Suffering from insomnia and PTSD from a traumatic experience seven years before, Poe keeps everyone at arm's length. Then, she meets homicide detective Caleb Frost and her life changes dramatically. Frost sees Poe's brokenness in perfect clarity and sympathizes with her. However, just when Poe is starting to let him in, she discovers a horrible truth: she is the sole direct descendant of Edgar Allan Poe, inheriting not only the last name of one of the world's most famous poets, but also a terrible family curse that takes the form of the master of the macabre's most haunting tales. If Poe cannot recognize the curse unfolding in time, it will destroy the lives of all those close to her and annihilate her sanity.
Of "Nevermore", Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media has said, "Ms. Martens succeeds at painting dark, suspenseful, sometimes horrific pictures. It is the kind of psychological horror that locking the doors and windows and reading with the lights on will not keep out."
