The Haunted by: Jessica Verday

Publication Date: August 2010

Synopsis: 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....

My thoughts: I was really excited to see how Abigail was after the first book. I mean her best friend was dead, 2 elderly friends she made were ghost and her new boyfriend was a ghost as well.
Turns out she went to her aunts for some mental help? And to get away from all the chaos that seemed to be everywhere in the first book.
When arriving back hoe she finds CAspian right where she left him, living in the cemetery....eewww! And she's still in love with him. They decide to give their love a chance and hang out more!
She think Ben was the "D" , his first name begins with a D, but he tells her it wasn't him that he had feelings for her but that they never dated. Even though he wanted to.
Abbey starts working for her uncle where she meets Vincent D. Who is the "D" she is looking for and he admits to killing her but it was a mistake. He was actually looking for Abbey. So Kristin's death was not meant to be.
After traveling with CAspian and Ben, to Caspian's hometown(where she was suppose to be looking at a college) they realize that Caspian and Abbey are a complete pair. But in order for them to be together Abbey must die!!!
I'm hoping for more to come soon. Only to tell me she won't die but there is a way to bring him back from the dead. And for vincent to die for the part he played in Kristin's death.

My rating: 3 Stars


  1. This book sounds good. What is the first one? I think I would like to read this series, or is it going to be a triology? Nice review.

  2. I'm not sure if it's a trilogy or a series...Either way I'm hooked! And the first one is The Hollow! i hope you enjoy reading them......
