The Haunted

The Haunted by Jessica Verday

Pages: 467

Contemporary, Sleepy Hollow

Abbey has spent several months trying to forget a boy that she fell in love with that couldn’t possibly have happened as she now knows the boy is dead.  She has been trying to reclaim her sanity since then.  Coming back to Sleepy Hollow she is ready to face the future and leave the ghosts behind.  Working on schoolwork and her friendship with her lab partner, Ben and her perfume just might be what she needs to get over Caspian finally. But Abbey is finding that she just can’t get over Caspian.

Caspian returns to Abbey’s side as he has no other choice.  Caspian is a Shade and Abbey is his destiny.  The two of them are tied to each other and to the town of Sleepy Hollow. The town that also binds their fates.  A town with dark truths that they are only beginning to find the answers to. 

This story picks up shortly after the first one left off and is not a disappointment at all.  The story arc continues in this second book of the trilogy and gives the reader more answers as to just what is going on in the small town of Sleepy Hollow.  Readers of paranormal and mystery stories is sure to love this series as so far it is delivering on both very well.  The characters pull the reader into the story and keeps the reader engrossed until the very end.  The end will have readers reaching for the last book in the trilogy just to see what happens and to hopefully finally get all the answers.  The suspense so far in this series keeps the reader on the edge of their seat turning pages to see what will happen next.  This is a young adult series but readers of all ages are sure to love it.

I give this one 5 red roses
