I promise not to go on and on about how much I love April White's past books...Instead, I will go on and on about how much I love THIS book. Before I do, I will direct you to a few reviews that are the most perfect of perfect for Death's Door. One was done by Nicole Emerald Book Reviews McCurdy ( and the other was by Curlyhairlass19 ( on Goodreads.

I highly recommend these two reviews because of the way they expressed everything I wanted to say but in a way, I never could.
Each of these reviewers touches on exactly why this very special author is able to take the reader to where they need to go and does it with humility, expertise, conviction, grace, and when necessary tongue in cheek. Read these words by them and you will know everything you need to make the smart decision to read this.

Now I am just going to add, this book is perfect for these times. There is much happening today and the roots of it go as far back as the beginning of this country. Through the detailed, researched, and incredible weaving of Edgar Allen Poe's life with our main character, Ren, we are able to experience the well-crafted tale, rich and full as is Ms. White's way...a learning lesson to carry us long after we have finished the book.

Carrying the story with after you read is what all authors want, I would think. The idea of learning something, changing perception, or becoming aware of something unknown powerful.

April White's way of mixing authentic history with a consuming story is a gift and we should take every chance we get to receive it.

Please, take a moment, click on the title and you will be better for it, I promise.

P.S. Since the title has the number #1 attached to it, I think there will be more to come with intrigue and the ways of Baltimore, with Immortal Descendants and others telling the tales. I cannot wait.

A gifted copy was provided by author for an honest review.
