Crane Review

The Horseman is unending,
his presence shan’t lessen.
If you break the curse,
you become the legend.

Washington Irving and Rip Van Winkle had no choice but to cover up the deadly truth behind Ichabod Crane’s disappearance. Centuries later, a Crane returns to Sleepy Hollow awakening macabre secrets once believed to be buried deep. 

What if the monster that spawned the legend lived within you?

Now, Ireland Crane, reeling from a break-up and seeking a fresh start, must rely on the newly awakened Rip Van Winkle to discover the key to channeling the darkness swirling within her. Bodies are piling high and Ireland is the only one that can save Sleepy Hollow by embracing her own damning curse. 

But is anyone truly safe when the Horseman rides?
My Thoughts: I was given this book as a review copy on Netgalley. I love the story of the headless horseman and Sleepy Hollow. This retelling goes back and forth between the horseman Ichabod Crane encountered to the present day. That's where we meet Ireland Crane. She's just moved from Manhattan to Sleepy Hollow for a fresh start. She got a whole lot more than she bargained for. I know what you're thinking, we all know how this story ends. Well think again because its definitely not what you've read before. The book was a tad slow for me in the beginning. Not in the sense that there wasn't any deaths there was definitely that,it just didn't catch me in the beginning. It definitely gets better though so keep reading! The last hundred or so pages went by so fast! I  highly recommend this book.
