Book 2 (Book 1: The Hollow)
An impossible truth. An impossible love. After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with–the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead–Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, ready to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into her schoolwork, her perfume-making, and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be her ticket to getting over Caspian once and for all. But Abbey can never get over Caspian, and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side, for Caspian is a Shade, and Abbey is his destiny. They are tied not only to each other, but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow, and to the famous legend that binds their fates–a legend whose dark truths they are only beginning to guess….
This book was really good. In the beginning of the book Abbey struggles with denying her feelings for Caspian, a person who shouldn’t exist. However, the more she denies it the more she realizes that she cares a lot about Caspian and despite being a ghost she is determined to make their relationship work. Even though Caspian can’t touch her there is one time when he can. A lot more details are given about Shades (people like Caspian, Nikolas, and Caty). Also, new mysterious characters appear who seem to be very interested in Abbey. The book is spent mainly on focusing on Abbey and Caspian’s relationship and their somewhat dark but sort of romantic connection. A little more is revealed about Kristen’s death such as who the mysterious D is. The novel ends with a really interesting plot twist that could endanger Abbey’s life. I would definitely recommend this book.
The last book in the trilogy is called The Hidden which comes out September 6, 2011
