Ichabod Crane is dead! Everyone knows it. The Horseman took him—like so many others—one dark night in 1790. All that remained of the town's amiable schoolmaster was his hat on the side of the road, with a shattered pumpkin beside it. But soon the fearful townspeople of Sleepy Hollow realized that the terrifying Horseman, that haunted their region for ages, had also disappeared, inexplicably, after that night. They were free!
That was 10 years ago. And a lone stranger has come to their quiet town.
He is friendly enough, well-mannered, educated, but there is a secret about this man—he is not what he seems. Suspicions grow. The whispers of gossip begin. All of Sleepy Hollow is soon turned upside-down when they learn the truth.
It is only the beginning, as they find themselves in the path of his black vengeance, his hunt for the foul murderer of Ichabod Crane. This stranger threatens not only their lives by his presence, but their very souls by bringing about the return of the hellish Headless Horseman!
For Sleepy Hollow, will death be upon them all?
Hollow Blood and The Devil’s Patch are both books of the two-part Sleepy Hollow Horrors.
The author has written an excellent story taking us back in time to 1790 and the murder of Ichabod Crane. What really happened to him, was he killed or did the headless horseman take him and leave his hat as a warning to others.
The main character has been expertly created and with an air of mystery surrounding him and his intentions absorbs the reader into the novel.
Masterful descriptions and an excellent historic background draw the reader into a past era that you can easily imagine yourself being there. All the way through the quest to find out what has happened to Crane and the obstructions and people unwillingness to tell the truth make for an excellent ghost story.
This author and his writing takes me back to my youth when I was interestd legends and loved reading about Dick Turpin, Werewolves and of course Dracula, praise of the author.
The Devil's Patch Book Two of the Sleepy Hollow Horrors
This is not the fake, Hollywood-style Sleepy Hollow American television series. This is the true, terrifying story.
The Devil’s Patch! Book Two (and conclusion) of the debut Sleepy Hollow Horrors by Austin Dragon.
Ten years ago Ichabod Crane disappeared! The Horseman took him—like so many others—one dark night in 1790. All that remained of the town's amiable schoolmaster was his hat on the side of the road, with a shattered pumpkin beside it. But soon the fearful townspeople of Sleepy Hollow realized that the terrifying Horseman, that haunted their region for ages, had also disappeared, inexplicably, after that night. They were free!
Then a lone Julian Crane—Ichabod’s nephew—arrived in Sleepy Hollow.
He was friendly enough, well-mannered, charming, but he hid his true intentions—his personal hunt for the foul murderer of his dear uncle—and he single-handedly turned Sleepy Hollow upside-down in his quest of vengeance.
Now he knows the truth of who killed his uncle—and the many, many other victims—and that murderer is not a man of flesh and blood. But can he and his Super Posse stop this evil thing? They are no longer in Sleepy Hollow. They have tracked it to its accursed domain—The Devil’s Patch.
Will Julian, or any of them, survive the wrath of the Headless Horseman?
