Publisher's Summary

Katrina is still haunted by her encounter with the Headless Horseman - the night he beckoned to her. Now he has risen again, slashing heads and terrorizing the quiet countryside.

Her only joy during this dismal darkness comes when Ichabod Crane, a gorgeous young man from Connecticut, moves to Sleepy Hollow and their attraction turns to romance.

When the Horseman marks Ichabod as his next victim, Katrina, despite dangerous efforts to save him, sees no other choice than for them to flee.

But the Horseman awaits. Now it's up to her to sever the horror and alter the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

    "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

    Story
    "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 :)

    Story
    "A twist on a classic tale."

    One of my favorite movies is Sleepy Hollow starring Johnny Depp. It is twisted and sick just the way I like things. This story is more of a romance with the headless horseman terrorizing the villagers. I enjoyed this story it was pretty good up until the ending, that part was a disappointment. The biggest draw of the story was who was controlling the headless horseman and while this story tells of how he came to be, the story had so much more potential that fell flat. Plus there were a lot of questions that were left unanswered. But for a book that was on sale it was worth the cost. Narrator was okay, she did fit the main character.

    "Excellent voice and characterizations!"
    Any additional comments?

    Sofia Willingham is a fine narrator. Very easy on the ears without distracting from the story, as some narrators do who are anxious to "act". Her characterizations are minimalist, but it was clear which character was speaking. This is a great yarn. I recommend it highly.

    "Sleepy Hollow"
    What did you love best about Sleepy Hollow?

    I loved the ending and the reveal of the horseman.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I so felt for Katrina when she was locked up and the things that happened to her father.


    Any additional comments?

    Really nice version of Sleepy Hollow. Although you have heard the story over many times, you are still waiting for what is going to happen next. And always wondering who the next victim will be.

    "Spooky Tale"

    I love this version of the classic story, with shocking plot twists. The story is well put together and has a great flow. So frequently the bad guy is easy to figure out from the start but with this story I had no idea. It was such a shock at the end.
    This story is told from the perspective of Katrina, the daughter to a wealthy businessman. When the schoolmaster is beheaded and surrounded by scorched grass, the town becomes fearful of the hessian's ghost also known as the headless horseman. When the new schoolmaster becomes marked Katrina becomes hellbent on coming up with answers and putting the horseman's ghost to rest, but during a time when people are fearful of the unknown and witchcraft she may have put herself in the line of fire. The Narrator does a fantastic job with all of the voices.

    Story
    "Sleepy Hollow's Quaintness Lost in Performance"
    Would you try another book from Dax Varley and/or Sofia Willingham?

    Unfortuneately, no! The performance by Sophia W. was blatanly juvenile and plodding. It was more to the unsophisticated high schooler, than the general reader. The POV (point-of-view) perspective given to 'Katrina' did not help the story, in fact her 'California Girl' presentation of thought and action would have suited 'Clueless' not the intrigue of folk lore and murder. The authorship of D.Varley was slow and completely lacked either the tension of intrigue or the humour of folley that the true 'Sleepy Hollow' genre provides any author with a love of the time and tenure.


    Has Sleepy Hollow turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely not - one poor apple does not contaminate the tree.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sofia Willingham?

    Amanda Siegfried


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration - I could not wait until it was quiet.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Willingham would perhaps be directed towards youthful, modern novels, that afford the 'spacey, air-head' approach to analysis. Sorry, but I was truly frustrated at her lack of ability to help the story.

    "Totally drawn in to the story!!"
    What did you love best about Sleepy Hollow?

    A fresh take on a classic story!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sleepy Hollow?

    When Ichabod takes on the horseman and I also loved that Katrina was a stronger "Damsel in distress"


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

    Ms. Willingham is exceptional in the variety of her characterizations!! It is awesome that she can voice so many characters so believably--and with such diversity!! She brings the words to life!!


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly, this is not one of my favorite stories, but I love reading/hearing different adaptations of classics!! This is a really good one and Ms. Willingham has a grasp on the characters and presents them with complete honesty and believability!! Quite the talent!!
    Mr. Varney has delivered a very interesting take on this classic!! Well worth adding to your kindle or library!!!
