"From the Shadows" is a collection of dark poetry. Stevens' work rekindles the great lyrical storytelling style of Edgar Allen Poe with a dark imagination influenced by such masters as Neil Gaiman and H. P. Lovecraft.
About the Author:
E. J. Stevens is a graduate of the University of Maine at Farmington with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Erica has worked in a variety of jobs that demonstrate the human condition including schools, psychiatric hospitals and (*shudder*) shopping malls. She currently resides on the coast of Maine where she finds daily inspiration for her writing.
I'm not familiar with poetry terminology so this review will be short and sweet. :)
What I can tell you is whether or not I liked a book. I certainly enjoyed E.J.'s collection of poetry. She has a wonderful way with words and is able to tell a whole story in just a few lines of poetry. I think that's the most important part of being a good poet, and it really shows talent.
I really enjoyed it and recommend that you check out "From The Shadows" and other upcoming titles!
