Summary

A Midnight Dreary, the long-awaited fifth volume in The DeChance Chronicles, picks up outside Old Mill, NC, when Donovan, reminded that he has promised his lover, Amethyst, and Geoffrey Bullfinch of the O.C.L.T., a story, draws them back in time to a vision of the final chapter of the novel Nevermore - A Novel of Love, Loss & Edgar Allan Poe

At vision's end, they realize that they have to act to free Eleanor MacReady from the trap that holds her on the banks of Lake Drummond, in the Great Dismal Swamp, and to rescue a princess who has not known freedom in at least two centuries. 

The rescue that ensues crosses worlds and dimensions, wandering through Poe's tales, the fables of the Brothers Grimm, and finally to a confrontation on a mountain in Germany.  

This novel draws upon characters and plots from many of the author's novels, including his stories of Old Mill, NC, The O.C.L.T., Nevermore, and the vampire novel Darkness Falling.

It is rich with sorcery and adventure. Welcome to the world of Donovan DeChance.

Solid Ensemble Story

When looking at the prospect of many characters from many other works joining together there's a certain amount of trepidation before taking that journey, but considering I've been familiar with Wilson's work in the past I figured it was worthy of taking the jump. It was certainly the correct idea as the characters were brought together easily and seamlessly in combination with world building and background, but despite all that it never got too long or slow building, rather it was like you had attended a reunion with the characters before they dove into their next adventure. That adventure was sufficiently Poe-esque with some dark and gothic stylings but never getting scary, and it certainly provided enough entertainment throughout to keep the story going. There's a couple of interesting set ups and memorable scenes before a dramatic final encounter.

I really enjoyed the narrator, he definitely added to the story.
