  • A creative sequel of the Headless Horseman

    I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review. The opinions are entirely my own, and any quotes are taken from the ARC and may be different in the final published copy. Christina Henry is one of the most imaginative authors I read. She takes well-known stories and retells them or sets them in a familiar setting, and writes a fantastical tale in which the reader is never quite sure where the story will go. Her latest, Horseman A Tale of Sleepy Hollow, is not a retelling of Sleepy Hollow but a sequel set decades after the original tale. Katrina and Brom are now grandparents raising their granddaughter Bente. The isolated town has not changed much since Ikfjlsdkjf Crane ran from the Headless Horseman. People do not wander too far off the path in the woods because strange things happen there. A child is found dead; the injuries are similar to murders from years ago. Could the Horseman be back, or is something else hunting and killing children of the hollow? I enjoy reading Christina Henry's novels because I am never sure where they will go. Her writing style hooks you in from the beginning, and the only thing you can be sure of is that you are going on a wild ride while reading her stories. Although they borrow from well-known stories, they are creative and unusual. Horseman is no exception. This 200-word review will be published on Philomathinphila.

  • More Emotional Than Scary

    This is not what I was expecting, and yet it was a pleasant, if emotional, surprise. It is more a story of connection, family, and identity. That said, Henry continues to bring the gore and the scares. The main character Ben is struggling to explain her gender identity to those in a world and a time that do not seem to accept it. They are a complex character whose strengths lie in conviction. They also have a great deal of love for their grandparents and the legacy left behind. I found this reimagining to be creative and unique. It takes the legend and offers some twists to make an original story centred around this girl determined to be seen as a boy and find their place in the world. There is, of course, a supernatural element. For the most part, I liked it because Henry is great at creating terrifying images. That said, the ending does seem a little left field. I may need to think on it more but it felt a little convenient. This is also not a happy book, so don’t expect an HEA. Still, I’ve been a long time fan of Henry’s books, and this story makes me eager for more!

    Thanks for your feedback!
