Book Summary: Katrina’s still haunted by her encounter with the Headless Horseman - the night he beckoned to her. Now he has risen again, slashing heads and terrorizing the quiet countryside.

Her only joy during this dismal darkness comes when Ichabod Crane, a gorgeous young man from Connecticut, moves to Sleepy Hollow and their attraction turns to romance.

When the Horseman marks Ichabod as his next victim, Katrina, despite dangerous efforts to save him, sees no other choice than for them to flee.

But the Horseman awaits. Now it’s up to her to sever the horror and alter the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Book Review: Do you like the movie Sleepy Hollow or even the television series from FOX? Then this book may just be for you.

This book kept me riveted from the first page to the very last. Katrina is definitely not your sort of run of the mill damsel in distress. In fact, it is a role she rather loathes all together. It doesn't help either when Brom is already planning their wedding. It is something Katrina doesn't want.

Sleepy Hollow is haunted by the Headless Horseman. Katrina knows he is real. She has seen him before and she fears she could be his target. At first the Headless Horseman hasn't been seen in quite some time but then headless bodies appear. It appears the Headless Horseman has returned.

I really enjoyed this version of events from Sleepy Hollow. The storyline was not boring and the characters definitely had dimension to them.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves anything to do with the Sleepy Hollow world either it being from re-telling or from a character's point-of-view.
