Sleepy Hollow Review

Title: Sleepy Hollow
Author: Keith R.A.Decandido
When Ichabod Crane, a soldier from the Colonial Army, is resurrected from his grave, more than two centuries after he was killed in battle, he partners with Lieutenant Abbie Mills of the Sleepy Hollow Police Department to fight the evil forces that have taken hold of the town.
It’s a cold day in January, and Ichabod visits Patriots Park for a moment of peace. Instead, he receives a disturbing vision from his wife, Katrina, in which she delivers a cryptic but urgent message: he must retrieve the Congressional Cross that he was awarded by the Second Continental Congress for bravery in action. There’s just one problem: Ichabod was killed before he ever received the medal, and he is unsure where it might be. Together Ichabod and Abbie set out to uncover the mystery of the cross and its connection to George Washington and his secret war against the demon hordes. They soon learn that a coven of witches is also seeking the cross in order to resurrect their leader, Serilda, who was burned at the stake during the Revolutionary War. Now they must locate the cross before the coven can bring back Serilda to exact her fatal revenge on Sleepy Hollow.


I just love the TV show that this book is based on. And this book hits the nail on the head. The characters are amazing and the story really pulls you in. You get sucked into this who good vs evil battle, but it is a twist on a tale as old as time.

The mystery and the intensiveness was amazing throughout the book. But the characters were amazing, if you watched the show. I had read another review that the person hadn't watched the show and didn't understand the characters. So I had to step back and look at it for a moment as if I hadn't watched any of the show. And then it doesn't give much about the characters background or anything, so that could have been done better. I loved this book overall, though!

I requested this and it was sent to me from blogging for books for an honest review.

  1. I got this one as well! But one review mentioned that if your not up to date on all the episode this book is a spoiler. So I'm hoping to catch up first before I start reading this :).
