Great twist on the Sleepy Hollow Story!!!

I love all things Sleepy Hollow and this book was perfect! I found both Katrina and Ichabod characters to be my favorite yet of any version or story I've read. I felt the fear of the towns people and was sucked in to the book from the very beginning. This is my first book by Dax Varley but I love the style and character development so I'm an instant fan. Sofia did a great job narrating the book and I particularly liked her as Ichabod. I highly recommend this book. I did not see the ending credits coming! It's a great love story filled with paranormal romance, suspension and drama

Rise Of The Headless Horseman?

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it was a truly original take on this classic tale


What does Sofia Willingham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I was a bit annoyed at her mispronunciation of a few words that were used regularly (ie scythe) but overall Sofia Willingham's performance was pretty good. Her portayals of the characters were very interesting and lent a depth of emotion I am sure I would have missed had I just read the book. The terror she conveyed was palpable as was the menace from certain characters.


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

No. I needed frequent breaks! The story was amazing but I can only take so much butchering of a frequently used word before I am yelling at an empty room. Too bad they can't go back and fix all instances of that one word... Then it would be amazing!


Any additional comments?

This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to listen to the next one!


Sleepy Hollow is a town unlike any other. It is plagued with hauntings of all kinds. There is the legendary Headless Horseman as well as many other more mundane ones. The wailing woman in white they resolved but many others they have not. Why is Sleepy Hollow so haunted? Who hurried the Hessian? Will they ever be able to banish him for good? Or will the Headless Horseman forever stalk the town and its residents?


The first victim of the Headless Horseman (this time around) was the schoolteacher Nicholas. Whatever his past, he was a kind man and a good teacher. Noone knows why he was targeted or the nature of his offense. Who will be the next target? What is the Horseman's connection to Katrina? Is anyone safe?

***This series is suitable for young adult through adult listeners (or readers) who enjoy reimagined classic supernatural horror stories with new unique twists and a dash of romance :)
