Review: Sleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution by:Keith R.A. DeCandido

 Sleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution
About the Book:
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.

My Review:
 When Ichabod Crane decided to visit Patriots Park, he received a vision from his wife, Katrina, telling him of the coming events involving the Congressional Cross that he was to receive. Knowing that he must find the cross before its too late, he finds himself in a pickle because he dies before he receives it. Lt. Abbie Mills along with Ichabod are on the hunt to find the Congressional Cross before it ends up in the wrong hands.

 As they dig deeper, secrets spill out, ones telling of a coven of witches trying to find the cross as well. Soon the pair find themselves in the middle of many gruesome murders. The strange thing about these murders is the fact that they seem to have been done by something that is not human. Soon other crosses come up missing and there is a string of deaths to follow each.

 Ichabod and Abbie are in a race to find the cross before its too late and evil takes over sleepy Hollow. but the even bigger question is what does any of this have to do with George Washington?

*NOTE* This book does have some mild language.
