*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains no spoilers

Amazing! What a sequel! Again...Stacey Rourke interweaves and twists the macabre and supernatural with the reality of these characters! And...this time, it's not just Washington Irving's tale of The Headless Horseman, Raven interweaves Edgar Allan Poe's macabre and twisted tale(s) into Ridley's reality. This is another incredibly imaginative and ingenious retelling of the classic tales from these classic writers.

Raven begins where Crane left off when Ireland, Noah and Rip leaves Sleepy Hollow to find answers for the curse that Ireland has been inflicted with. This little group soon finds more than what they were looking for when their paths cross with Ridley Peolte. They are soon on another supernatural and dark adventure as more questions need answers. Doesn't look like Ireland is alone in having to deal with the blurred lines between fact and fiction.

Stacey Rourke has amazed me...again...with each character's sense of humor and sarcasm, especially their witty banter. With the twist of history and present time, Raven tells the tale of Ridley and Edgar Allan which reveals how closely they are tied to each other. Yet again, we are introduced to another who is cursed via familial ties. But, of course, you have to read Crane since this first book of the Legend Saga introduces readers to these crazy, yet intriguing, characters. I was totally immersed in this story that intertwined the classic tales to these characters' present day with a twisted and sinister plot.

Raven is definitely a grim and compelling story between fact and fiction that will keep you turning the page.
