Sleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution - Review

Sleepy Hollow: Children of the RevolutionSleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution by Keith R.A. DeCandido
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published September 30th 2014 by Broadway Books

When Ichabod Crane, a soldier from the Colonial Army, is resurrected from his grave, more than two centuries after he was killed in battle, he partners with Lieutenant Abbie Mills of the Sleepy Hollow Police Department to fight the evil forces that have taken hold of the town.
It’s a cold day in January, and Ichabod visits Patriots Park for a moment of peace. Instead, he receives a disturbing vision from his wife, Katrina, in which she delivers a cryptic but urgent message: he must retrieve the Congressional Cross that he was awarded by the Second Continental Congress for bravery in action. There’s just one problem: Ichabod was killed before he ever received the medal, and he is unsure where it might be. Together Ichabod and Abbie set out to uncover the mystery of the cross and its connection to George Washington and his secret war against the demon hordes. They soon learn that a coven of witches is also seeking the cross in order to resurrect their leader, Serilda, who was burned at the stake during the Revolutionary War. Now they must locate the cross before the coven can bring back Serilda to exact her fatal revenge on Sleepy Hollow.

Well it was better than the last season of the show. But then again I barely remember what happened in it- the show not the book. I have loved the story of Sleepy Hollow since I read the short story in fourth grade and was so excited when I first heard that it was going to be a show. A show which I instantly fell in love with.
(Despite what I just said about the last season. Partially my fault since I missed big chunks of the first half.)

I really got into tie-ins last year, since I realized it was another way to get more of the shows I love. And I loved this story just as much as I love the show.

The plot is so amazing and fits perfectly with what Sleepy Hollow already is. The mix of history, the mystery and suspense, the charm that is Ichabod Crane and sass of Abbie Mills.
The perfect thing for those who can't wait for the next season.
