When Ichabod Crane, a soldier from the Colonial Army, is resurrected from his grave, more than two centuries after he was killed in battle, he partners with Lieutenant Abbie Mills of the Sleepy Hollow Police Department to fight the evil forces that have taken hold of the town.
It’s a cold day in January, and Ichabod visits Patriots Park for a moment of peace. Instead, he receives a disturbing vision from his wife, Katrina, in which she delivers a cryptic but urgent message: he must retrieve the Congressional Cross that he was awarded by the Second Continental Congress for bravery in action. There’s just one problem: Ichabod was killed before he ever received the medal, and he is unsure where it might be. Together Ichabod and Abbie set out to uncover the mystery of the cross and its connection to George Washington and his secret war against the demon hordes. They soon learn that a coven of witches is also seeking the cross in order to resurrect their leader, Serilda, who was burned at the stake during the Revolutionary War. Now they must locate the cross before the coven can bring back Serilda to exact her fatal revenge on Sleepy Hollow.
This book is based on the TV series and I must say I like the TV show much better than this book. It started of fairly good but became a less fun read the more I got in the book.
The time jumps back and forward in the book seem to be a bit confusing at times.
I also thought some stuff got way to much dragged out and could have been left out and were just put in as page fillers.
Nothing was really that surprising that was supposed to I guess, it was pretty easy to figure it all out without trying to.
I did like the charters but I guess I should since I liked them based of the show and they are pretty much the same. Except a few parts the dialog was kind of blah.
Overall I guess I give this book a 2 ½ ★
