    1. Ok, so I am still currently reading this bookbut I LOVE IT SO FAR!!!First of all, one thing that you should know about me, is that I am a HUGE Edgar A. Poe fan. My students would tell you that I am obsessed with him. So, naturally I like to read anything associated with him. My review is obviously going to be biased :)My favorite story that Poe has written happens to be The Fall of the House of Usher. For those of you who do not know the story.Madeline and Roderick Usher are the last of this anc [...]

    2. This continuation of Edgar Allen Poe's 'Fall of the House of Usher' was surprisingly well written. I wasn't sure what to expect, expecially considering the fact that Mr. Poe has so brillianty penned the original novel, and thus - has set the bar rather high. It was disturbingly incestual throughout some portions, yet only because a deeply powerful and magical force was at play (as in the original story) - yet this spin delves more-so into actual (possible) history, and even includes Mr. Poe hims [...]

    3. I thought this book was great - moody, gothic, and insightful. One of the main characters was Poe, himself, and the novel provided a lot of insights into Poe’s tragic life. The atmosphere of the book invoked Poe’s tales – I need to reread “The Fall of the House of Usher” which this book expands upon. When I first started reading the book, it was a little hard to get into but as it continues, you are really drawn into the strange story of the Ushers and their extended family. The Celtic [...]

    4. Ever wonder what happened to Madeline Usher? This tale by Kiraly weaves the life of Edgar Allan Poe into the life of his characters from The Fall of the House of Usher.

    5. Wow - quite a disturbing/disturbed book! (Not that that was a surprise.) Quite a story and quite some characters, but "heroine" rather too inconstant to appeal.

    6. I really liked this book, if you admire Poe and liked "The Fall of the House of Usher"; you should find this an interesting read.
