From the opening line, I was hooked. The characters are unique and vibrant and flawed--they jump off the page and take on life of their own. Julio and Meg are basically the cutest thing ever, Todd and Amy are fantastic, and all the minor characters are equally amazing.
I loved the amount of American mythology Shultz brought to the story. "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a new favorite of mine, to the extent that I've reread it several times in the past couple months, and finding connections to it in "Horseman" was like finding a secret hideout in a library--in other words, the best thing.
The ending left me equal parts satisfied and hungry for more. I can't wait to read more by this author.
Magic and myths and sometimes-centaurs and dragons and banter and sasquatches and mystery and found family and werewolves and danger. And MORE. (Mooooooorrree??!)
I think my fave thing about this play on the legend of Sleepy Hollow is how it's clever and funny and sometimes random and outlandish--but it never feels silly or lessens the stakes. You FOR REAL feel for and with the characters, which makes the reading all the more fun.
I'll be honest; initially I thought, "Eh, I don't think ima be thrilled about Amy and Todd. This is gonna be one of those couples that just kinda snipes back and forth at each other and eventually calls that love." But I was wrong. These two MCs really make each other BETTER, and their friendship develops like they're HUMAN BEINGS and goes goes DEEP, and I LOVE THEM. (Also, I almost never "cast" book characters in my head, but Amy was immediately played by a young Rashida Jones, and I am RIGHT ABOUT THIS.)
Bonus: The longer I look at the cover, the funnier it is to me.
Check this one out if you like myths or legends or fairy tales or humor or adventure or people or creative things.
Stuffed with everything from mythological creatures to time travel, from beloved characters of folklore to potion-wielding criminals, Horseman has something for everyone. And, as always, the characters are fabulous: full of gumption and snark and just enough narcissism to keep things interesting.
Horseman is light enough for a lazy day’s reading, but still has enough punch to keep you turning pages. I’d highly recommend you pick up your own copy to enjoy.
One of the things I love is he has distinctly female and male characters, but they're real people and thus, unexpected. Amy Crockett and Todd Crane are both strong, well written characters. Amy is physically strong and determined, Todd cries, and the idea that women are one type and men are another type is thoroughly turned on its head. I hand these books to my preteens and teens because they're good clean fun with strong values and wolf adventures.
I honestly wasn't sure what I was going to get when I picked up this book. What I ended up with was many laugh-out-loud moments, heart-racing action scenes, and characters I desperately want to learn more about. Book two, here I come!
Horseman is the first in Kyle Robert Shultz's B&B spin-off series. It's set in the Afterverse in the country of Neverica, an alternate USA. It also takes place thirty years before The Beast of Talesend. But despite this being a prequel series I recommend reading the first three Beaumont and Beasley books first, due to one or two characters who cross over from that series.
I loved these characters so much. I actually put off reading Horseman because I was afraid it would just be Beaumont and Beasley set in the old west. But Crockett and Crane are their own people and not cookie cutter copies of Nick and Cordelia.
The best news character is Julio, a dragon shifter with a Spanish flare.
As for the story of Ichabod and the headless horseman, the truth is not the story you've heard.
