Of Monsters and Madness

ofmonstersandmadnessWritten by Jessica Verday

It is always tricky when an author starts messing with a real character from history. I usually don’t like it. Jessica Verday does an excellent job of weaving Edgar Alan Poe into a Jekyll and Hyde story. Brilliant. It took me a while to figure out the connection between Edgar and Alan. The book has a good headstrong female character which I like and enough history to make it almost believable. There is enough blood and mayhem to please many of our male readers, too, I would think.
