We all walk though dark places in our lives, some darker than others. Eleanor Poe has been through vast deep darkness, and pain that is often kept well hidden. Poe's pain is still a bit too fresh, even raw in areas, and she is working so hard to heal. With the new challenges from the curse, and everything she has been through, the upcoming events in her life will make or break her. Major life choices have to be made, and consequences borne out. Poe is now living with Frost, his little sister Trina and a very special little cat named Church. Poe's longing to be as normal as possible is stronger than ever. However, so are the the forces that wish to cause her complete demise. Tori is a new person in her life, and her concern for her foster mother hasn't left her alone. What keys do they hold to her life at this time? What curse is going to be brought to bear if she can't thwart it? This installment in this series is no less interesting than the prior books, and even more intense. I really enjoyed this well written read, but I do have to give it a much needed warning label. One for being addictive! The other warning, for having very sensitive subject matter. Among other things, this book deals with child abuse, and rape. It contains three intimate scenes. They are handled with care, and are meant to help others understand where Poe is coming from. However, it could trigger anyone who has been through rape, and or abuse trauma. I'm looking forward with anticiapation to the next book in this in-depth, well-written, creative and very intense series. Long live Poe, and may we continue to walk with her on her life's journey to break the curses, and be happy.

This third installment of the “Poe” series, finds the beloved cast of the first two books struggling through even more evils. There is a clear focus on character development which gives the reader a better understanding of the minds of many supporting characters. The third book is an introduction and reaffirmation of strong female leads. This harkens to the stark reminder and warning of violence done onto women in the U.S. which comes at the beginning. This introduction sets the reader up for a story which is fast paced, driving through heart pounding scene after heart pounding scene until you are teetering towards and then off a cliff. As I was reading the story I found myself falling into the twists written so eloquently by Ms. Martens. I found myself questioning strong characters, and reanalyzing what I knew about the broken ones. This installment was the best yet, and I cannot wait to see where the fourth book brings Poe, Frost, Trina, and all of the other characters I’ve watched endure and grow. “Poe: Death’s Mark” is a beautifully written thriller about real life struggle, human relationships, and fighting to beat all odds; a story which seamlessly integrates paranormal elements and the historical writings of Edgar Allen Poe. I won’t spoil the ending, because I encourage anyone who loves thrillers, Edgar Allen Poe, and wonderfully written characters to read this series. However, I will say the ending tore through me. I cried, I was frightened, and I was left wanting more. I greatly anticipate the next book in the “Poe” series!

I love a good suspense filled story that I am on the edge of my seat for. Predictable writers annoy me and insult my intelligence. With this third installment, I was not disappointed. I couldn't put it down! I found myself rooting for the characters when things started going well while also wondering where the next twist would be and then being horrified and even shouting out "Oh Gross!" when it appeared! I love the character development of Poe's new relationship with Trina, a character who is also fragile yet strong. I wondered how that would develop and loved that it had such depth rather than just glossing over it with a faint relationship that had no strength to it. Nothing shallow about these characters. I also loved how some of the other minor characters are developing into strong roles with unpredictable futures. I am dying to see how they are portrayed in upcoming books and I find myself grabbing my old copies of Edgar Allen Poe books in search of what story they might segue into next! Ms. Martens is definitely not afraid to tackle difficult subjects and really show the behind the scenes of some of them which is hidden from view. I think we all have some TV-Version of what domestic abuse might look like. But, Martens tackles it head on and shows how it consumes the abused and traps them all before they even realize they have been trapped. As for depression and anxiety disorders, let's face it, Poe has those going. Martens shows the hidden side of those and how the anxiety can force the depression into an even deeper whole that seems like it cannot be escaped from. I applaud the character for working so hard to gain baby steps to sanity and I hope Poe helps to encourage those that suffer with anxiety and depression to do the same.

This story depicts the tragic heroine's first hope for a future and her battle to hold onto that hope. She did it again. Rachel Marten captures the essence of Edgar Allen Poe in a wonderfully and colorful book. This book kept my interest for all 300+ pages. The Poe legacy, the Poe curse described in detail through the lives of Tori, the Poe decedent and her friends and foes. A must read for all Poe fans and new Poe readers. After reading this book, if you haven’t read the original Edgar Allen Poe books and stories, you will want to. Happy reading ! I was given a pre-release copy for review from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
