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.

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.

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 :)

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.

Loved the Details

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. Combine romance, paranormal, debts to pay, vengeance, and a great narrator and you have an interesting horror story filled with great details. This is a different take on the horror story we grew up with and Crane is the star. The reason behind the headless horseman is also shown. I liked the explanation.

Pretty good

Pros and cons to this. It moves slowly. The narrator is pretty good. I prefer the sleepy hollow movie story line to this one but it was still decent

New take on a classic

An original version of the classic tale. The characters are believable and the paranormal romance is well written. I would have preferred a different narrator, but was performed adequately.I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
