A romantic, historical retelling of classic Gothic horror featuring Edgar Allan Poe and his character Annabel Lee, from a New York Times best-selling author. Annabel Lee is summoned from Siam to live with her father in 1820's Philadelphia shortly after her mother's death, but an unconventional upbringing makes her repugnant to her angry, secretive father. Annabel becomes infatuated with her father's assistant Allan, who dabbles in writing when he's not helping with medical advancements. But in darker hours, when she's not to be roaming the house, she encounters the devilish assistant Edgar, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Allan, and who others insist doesn't exist. A rash of murders across Philadelphia, coupled with her father's strange behavior, leads Annabel to satisfy her curiosity and uncover a terrible truth: Edgar and Allan are two halves of the same person - and they are about to make the crimes detailed in Allan's stories come to life. Unless Annabel stops them.

The sequel to Of Monsters and Madness from a New York Times best-selling author. Edgar Allan Poe and Annabel Lee return for more Gothic thrills in this mashup drawing on Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray. "Madness most magnificent!" --The El Paso Times on Of Monsters and Madness In mourning after the sudden death of her grandfather, Annabel Lee is devastated when her beau, Allan Poe, commits himself to an insane asylum to keep his second personality--callous serial killer Edgar--at bay. In need of distraction, she eagerly accepts her father's invitation to help with his medical experiments. But his scientific study is rapidly morphing into morbid obsession. And Annabel's own attempts to cure Allan are becoming morally questionable. When Annabel begins receiving mysterious notes and then her father is kidnapped, she's left with little choice.

The secrets he reveals force her to make a decision that may make her the most monstrous of all.
