“Oblivion” is the third and final novel in Kelly Creagh’s ‘Nevermore’ Trilogy. In this novel, cheerleader Isobel Lanley is heartbroken over the loss of her boyfriend Varen Nethers, who is trapped in the mysterious Dreamworld. Despite her misery, Isobel refuses to roll over and take what life has given her. Isobel’s lucky break arrives through the reappearance of Reynolds, the ghostly Dreamworld vigilante, who sends her back to the Dreamworld to find Varen and destroy Lilith once and for all.

“Obilivion” is an incredible read and a fantastic conclusion to the ‘Nevermore’ Trilogy. The plot is gripping and interesting, and seamlessly blends horror, fantasy, and Edgar Allen Poe poems together. The plot also has no slow or dull moments in it. The characters in “Oblivion” are wonderfully well-written, and they are all lovable and unique in their own ways. Isobel and Varen’s relationship is written in such a way that it does not feel repetitive of other fictional couples, and also does not read as boring or loveless. The Dreamworld setting of “Oblivion” is clever and eerie, adding to the novel’s sense of claustrophobia and fantasy.

Overall, “Oblivion” is a truly worthwhile read, as is the rest of the ‘Nevermore’ Trilogy. The author of this review highly recommends “Oblivion”, and believes it to be suitable for ages thirteen and up. There is some symbolism and deeper meanings in “Oblivion”, but the amounts are very limited. Due to this, the author of this review would not recommend this book an unsuitable choice as an essay or ‘book talk’ book.
