Crane by Stacey Rourke [SBM Reivew]

(Legends Sage Book 1)

The Horseman is unending, 
his presence shan’t lessen. 
If you break the curse, 
you become the legend. 

Washington Irving and Rip Van Winkle had no choice but to cover up the deadly truth behind Ichabod Crane’s disappearance. Centuries later, a Crane returns to Sleepy Hollow awakening macabre secrets once believed to be buried deep. 

What if the monster that spawned the legend lived within you? 

Now, Ireland Crane, reeling from a break-up and seeking a fresh start, must rely on the newly awakened Rip Van Winkle to discover the key to channeling the darkness swirling within her. Bodies are piling high and Ireland is the only one that can save Sleepy Hollow by embracing her own damning curse. 

But is anyone truly safe when the Horseman rides? 

I enjoyed a new look at a classic story. It was a retelling of Sleepy Hollow and an Ichabod Crane that I hadn't seen before. It was interesting and had a great twist. I enjoyed the way Rourke the story. I got to experience the "true original story" while getting the story of the present. I just loved Rip! Rip was just the funniest and his old world charm just made me smile. It was a great base story for a series. It was a little slower than I usually liked, but loved the back story and can't wait to find out what trouble we find in the next book.
