Second Look: SLEEPY HOLLOW by Dax Varley (Audio)


Dax Varley’s Sleepy Hollow (2014)

From Goodreads:

Katrina is 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.

I have so, so many thoughts about this book.  Most of them are not that good.  Although, it may be in part because of the audio version.
