310: Sleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution

22318426

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

Synopsis

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.

The Good

This book is set in a time period in the later part of the first season.

  • Different point of views beyond Abbie, Ichabod, and even the main cast
  • Deals with disability a bit
  • Makes American history interesting
  • Travels in time and back
  • If you like the show you will more than likely like this book. I feel that Keith R.A. DeCandido did a good job capturing the characters.
  • Little moments that you don’t get on the show

The Meh

It moves fast so that I felt like at a point something was missing. I feel the show is the same so yeah.

Conclusion

Definitely a very good adaptation of the show.

Little Tidbits

One thing that  was interesting to me is that on the recommendations part for this book on goodreads there are interracial romance recommendations. I would like to read more books that are like this. I think this would be considered urban fantasy. I wish urban fantasy was better or that I find the right urban fantasy novel so I could read it.
