The Hallow is a wonderful debut of a new series for young adults and adults as well! Each chapter starts out with a quote from the Legend of Sleepy Hallow and leads the way for the story to develop. I hope I haven’t said too much already, but the story weaves around the tale. I hate giving away spoilers. I looooved the setting and how the descriptions weren’t overwhelming as they can sometimes get in a thick book.
The cover is just spectacular and when you get into the story you will appreciate it even more. It just fits so perfectly. Someone was really thinking when they did the layout. There should be nothing in here to concern parents. A few kisses here and there but that is about it. The characters of Abbey and Caspian really have some great chemistry and the author does a great job of portraying all of the emotions that they both show. I really recommend this one to paranormal romance fans.
It looks like a good one! I’ll be curious about the quotes from Legend of Sleepy Hollow–that always seemed so scary when I was young.
What’s funny is I actually am about to start this! I hope I love it as much as you did!

Wow! Sounds just GREAT! I’ll have to add it to my already HUMONGOUS TBR pile!! And I agree that the cover is stunning, too.
Thanks for the nice review! : )
