Epic, mind-bending, and as sweet as it is vicious, Lani Lenore's Nevermor is Book 1 in a dark fantasy trilogy based on the legend of Peter Pan, geared toward a more mature audience.
Reading Level 16+ - In 1873, 15-year-old Wren longs to escape her life in a London orphanage. Prompted by a world she sees in a dream, Wren begins to believe in a world called Nevermor, an island at the edge of the universe, where all dreams go. She discovers the Rifter, a wild, volatile, and strangely handsome boy who guards the realm of dreams from terrifying nightmares. Wren begins to desire her own life there - to escape with her brothers without fearing that anyone will tear them apart.
Wren falls in love with Nevermor - and with the Rifter - and yet the more she learns of a conflict between the Rifter and a wicked, black-hearted man called the Scourge, the more she comes to realize that Nevermor is not a place for children.

I had the pleasure of reading this before it was published when Lani Lenore was still an unknown, unpublished author. And this story is absolutely incredible. It's an eerie, dark , retake on Peter pan and I couldnt put it down. Im buying this as soon as possible!
To start, Nevermor is not as closely related to the original story of Peter Pan as you'd expect. Actually, it's much better! There's a lot of action, some romance, some parts that will make you angry/sad/happy/mushy. The Rifter is quite the character - hardheaded just like you'd expect a boy to be. Wren, though young herself, has had to grow up a lot and you can see the motherly role that she takes on. Lani Lenore is an extremely talented writer. I absolutely LOVED Nevermor and can't wait for the second installment in the trilogy!
Amazing Couldn't Put It Down
I have followed Lani Lenore for a couple of years now, and when I found out she was going to be a published author, I was so excited for her. Nevermor is an amazingly well written book; there is a great character arch for both Wren, the heroine, Rifter, the hero, and even the minor characters, such as Wren's brother Henry and Rifter's friend Nix. There is never a dull moment, and never a second when you doubt the talent this author has. I am anxiously awaiting Lani Lenore's publishing of the next book in the trilogy, and any other writings she may publish!
