Publisher's Summary

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?

A fantastic take on an old story.

Any additional comments?

Let's take a moment to absorb the absolutely awesome cover this has!!! Anyway, I have had this on my kindle since it first came out and have been dying to read it, so when I got the chance to listen to the audio, I jumped at it, well I'm so glad I did because I loved this!!! So freaking fantastic in audio.

Who doesn't know the Sleepy Hollow story by now, and if not, why not?? Stacey Rourke has taken that story and made it her own. She has created a seriously creepy and engaging book and one which I devoured. I listened to this over the course of 2 days and honestly didn't want to put it down.

I won't say too much about the plot because I don't want to spoil it, but what I will say is it's fast paced and creepy. It's told from 2 different centuries but flows seamlessly. We get to see the story told from Ichabods' time and from Ireland Cranes' time. I loved that it was like this and thought it added so much more to the whole book. Ichabod, Rip and Washington were fascinating to read about! I especially loved Rip in Ichabods time. He was a devilish rogue and quite lovable!

Ireland was a fiesty MC. She moves to a new town and gets a job at the school, only for the horseman to show up again after years being dormant. She goes through a lot and my heart broke for her at times! She was strong, brave and sassy, everything you could want in a female lead!

In all this was a unique take on an old story. The author has such a wicked sense of humour and it shows with the witty remarks. It's a well written and developed book and I am so looking forward to book 2!! The ending set it up nicely for the next one and I cant wait to see where Irelands' journey takes her.

The audio of this was amazing. Karen Krause did a great job with the different characters and I knew which was which. She brought the story to life and was easy to listen to.

Loved it. Sleepy Hollow rides again

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. This book is brilliant. This author has created a retelling of Sleepy Hollow that is enticing and truly engaging! Sleepy Hollow is a great premise on which to build a story and this book brings so much more. The main character is strong, funny, and like the rest of Mrs. Rourke's characters, she's a strong and independent mind.

The story is original and kept me laughing and wanting more from start to finish.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Crane (Legends Saga Book 1)?

Crane is told in multiple points of views. We get the current time period in Ireland's voice and the history in Ichabod Crane's voice. The past and the present work together to solve the mystery of the Hessian as he once again rides through the streets of Sleepy Hollow. Brilliant! It intertwines it all so well with a sarcastically funny lead character that it was truly a delight.

Have you listened to any of Karen Krause’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I definitely will after this book. And whilst I haven't checked yet I hope she's up for narrating more of Stacey Rourke's work as the narration added to the humour and the enjoyment of the book. Great narration for a great book!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have to admit that I did listen to it on one sitting! I was on a long journey and I tend to flick between music and a couple of books but I started listening and I had to finish it.
