Dear Reader,

Ever wonder what happened to Edgar Allan Poe leading up to his death? April White gives us a brand new take on his missing and unaccounted for days in Death’s Door.

Why should you read Death’s Door?

April White does an amazing job of pulling the historical figure, Edgar Allan Poe and turning him into a clocker. White’s books are researched and so well and she brings so much detail, she makes the history come alive. She takes a small thing, that the average person wouldn’t spend time thinking about and puts a spin on it.

But not only does April White use history as a plot point in her books, but the magic system she is building and her take on the main families and their descendants brings a fresh new perspective to the page.

Would we recommend this book and the series?

Yeses all around. We touch on this a lot, how we don’t normally enjoy the first book in a series because of all the world building, but Death’s Door being a prequel gives us an advantage. We know that the world has been built, and that while some questions don’t get answered we know we can find them in series as a whole.

Time travel + Edgar Allan Poe = an epic story
