But while Sleepy Hollow was made immortal by literature, the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica’s Cuban family and the secrets of their heritage that her mother obsessed over. But ghostly voices whisper in the wind, questioning whether her mother’s death might not have been an accident after all, and Mica knows there’s a reason she’s here.
With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must uncover the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother’s fate.
I do, however, love the idea of ghosts being able to communicate with the living (whether or not I believe in ghosts which is a whole other topic and I’m loathe to give my opinion in case I do indeed offend a ghost) although from what I could tell, for Mica, it was more of an annoyance/distraction than a help, considering she could barely close her eyes without more voices appearing. That would grow old real fast for me, I’m telling you now. I like my sleep not to be disturbed by voices, thank you very much and I thought Mica did amazing to not commit herself to an asylum.
Wake The Hollow was actually a really intriguing, fascinating book. It kept me entertained throughout, and on the very, very edge of my seat most of the time. Especially since Mica is such a great character that you just want to hide her away somewhere so she’s safe, because there was definitely spooky goings-ons, and intrigue and it was just terrifying. I felt on edge the whole time I was reading. The ending was the biggest surprise, almost like a punch in the gut, it really did surprise me. This was a very entertaining (and terrifying) read.
