Publisher's Summary

Book Two SLEEPY HOLLOW: Bridge of Bones is NOW AVAILABLE

JASON CRANE just turned seventeen years old.

He's a STAR WARS fan and a history geek. He doesn't believe in ghosts or the afterlife. He doesn't believe in psychic powers or tarot cards. He doesn't believe in the Headless Horseman.

But Sleepy Hollow will change all that. Because Jason Crane has a heritage to claim. Jason Crane has a Gift to discover. And Jason Crane has an old enemy who will RISE HEADLESS AND RIDE.

    Story
    "Absolutely incredible."

    This book is absolutely incredible! I just happened upon it in an audible deal and it seemed right up my alley. I love ghost storeis, I love halloween, and I love the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This book is so much fun and sets up for what promises to be an excellent trilogy.
    It's a YA novel and has a bit of teenage angst/drama/etc. but it isn't for the faint of heart. It's got its intense parts and even a little gruesomeness. The story is aboslutely engrossing and the characters are deeply developed and interesting.
    The writing in this book is just wonderful. The author dives into Washington Irving's Legend, true Revolutionary history, true-to-life geography of the Terrytown area, and back into his fabulous fictional world seamlessely. The intense horror action is offset by a thoroughly enjoyable sense of humor without seeming forced at all. Just great writing.
    The reader does just a fantastic job on this book. He uses a wide variety of easily recognizable voices for each character and handles the horror and the humor beautifully. Excellent building suspense, excellent comedic timing. It really brings this book together.
    I can't wait to listen to the rest!

    "A great story and a great narration!"

    This is a great story that continues the Legend of Sleepy Hollow into modern times. Richard Gleaves spins a great tale mixed with history, mystery, and horror. Eric Summerer does a fantastic job of bringing each character to life. If you're a fan of the original story of Sleepy Hollow then you'll love this and the rest of the trilogy.

    "Highly Entertaining Visit to a Beloved Classic"

    This book was in my wishlist for some time before I purchased it and downloaded it. I am sorry I didn't download it sooner, because I was unable to turn it off. If you are a fan of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow you will enjoy this story. The author and narrator take the listener on a thrilling adventure with several twists and turns not all of them are expected either. After finishing it, I eagerly downloaded the two follow up novels and am enjoying them very much.

    "Headless Horseman 100 Years Later"

    This is a clever, SPOOKY update on the Sleepy Hollow classic. Nice character development, scary stuff galore, and even a little humor. Going to start Book 2 right now!

    "New Twist On An Old Story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sleepy Hollow: Rise Headless and Ride to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jason. He had a tender, non judgmental heart. He was a very good grandson! He was a self admitted nerd, and nerds are the nicest kids and make the best friends.


    Have you listened to any of Eric Michael Summerer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but I think he did a great job with this audio book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Risen Hessian Vs. Super Nerd. (Sorry, all I could think of.)


    Any additional comments?

    Am looking forward to book #2.

    Story
    "Possibly the worst book I have listened to"
    What would have made Sleepy Hollow: Rise Headless and Ride better?

    If the story had believable dialogue, a plausible plot, or even a passing adherence to legality it would have been more of an enjoyable listen.


    Has Sleepy Hollow: Rise Headless and Ride turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes it has! The idea and title were appealing but I cannot imagine this being enjoyable to anyone who has contact with other real people.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Sleepy Hollow: Rise Headless and Ride?

    I cannot think of one character with a believable personality or dialogue that is even remotely realistic.


    Any additional comments?

    I was more or less just trying to get through all the way up to the point where the grandmother somehow bequeathed the guardianship of her grandson to someone. As if a person is chattel and property to be disposed of at death.

    Story
    "Start of a brilliant series"

    I really enjoyed this book. Eris Micheal Summerer made it come to life. There are parts where I held my breath and urged the hero along. It ended on a kind of cliff hanger making me want the next book right away st see what happens next.

    Story
    "Highly recommended to those who love adventure and a bit of a spook"

    Having purchased this audio book via kindle unlimited on Amazon, a decision made as much on price as on the expectation of entertainment I was delighted and surprised to find it immeasurably entertaining, a real (if metaphoric) page turner. I binge-listened to the whole thing on a Saturday and immediately upon finishing it purchased the next book.

    I hope that at one point soon it gets made into a TV series or film, because I'd love to see it on screen and think it would be much more enjoyable than recent forays into the Sleepy Hollow legend.

    Thank you Richard Gleaves.
