Hi ForeverBookers, sorry it's taken me so long to write another review. This book has taken me longer than I thought to get through.
This was a reread for me. I read it when I was 16/17 years old and it's certainly more for that age than a girl in her 20's. There were bits I liked about this book but I didn't love it. I just found the main character very whiney and self destructive to her own happiness to be honest.
When I was 16/17 years old I can remember almost swooning for the lead male character but not so much now.
The lead girl goes through a traumatic event before the start of the book and the rest basically revolves around that.
The characters were good as well. I liked how only a small cast of characters were involved as it gave the book more of a focus on the Legend Of Sleepy Hollow. However some of the characters were very annoying although they were portrayed well. .
Another good point was the settings. I could really imagine myself in some of the places this book takes us to - the sleepy hollow graveyard for example.
The romance was okay but it was very on and off again. The best bit of the book plot wise was probably the twist at the end. The twist was what made me really like this book. It gave me encouragement to continue reading the trilogy.
I give this book 3 stars. While it was a little too YA in plot, it wasn't terrible in terms of story or emotions. The UK book cover (the one below), is wrong. The necklace on the US cover is the right colour. The ending was rather sad but with the next books this will hopefully improve. The Haunted is the next book in the trilogy and I look forward to starting that next...
