Review

"Gleaves is a writer after my curmudgeonly historical yearning heart. He's done his homework on the lore and the locale. The novel leaps with spirits contemporary and haunted. Read this novel if you want something authentic of Sleepy Hollow and the Headless Horseman. Dare I say it, this should have been the book filmmakers used to retell old Irving's gem." -- Jonathan Kruk, Official Storyteller of Sleepy Hollow and author of "Legends and Lore of Sleepy Hollow and the Hudson Valley"

ScorcherOrTorture.com:
"I'll admit I wasn't aware that Sleepy Hollow is an actual place in New York.  I thought it was somewhere made up for the original
"Legend" story.  To find out it is a real village was a pleasant surprise.  So much of this trilogy is featured around real places, or events that happened, or people that truly existed.

There are layers upon layers of references and clues to these along the way, that only pay off as you get to certain points.  Once you reach these sections it makes you want to go back and re-read bits to see how you missed them.  There are probably other references that I didn't pick up on that would jump out or be clearer on a second read.

The Salem Witch Trials, along with Edgar Allan Poe's
"The Fall of the House of Usher" are a couple of things hinted at throughout the narrative.  Also the way the Tarot is used throughout the plot is superbly done and once it gets to "General of the Dead" you will wonder at the ingenuity of it all.

There is just so much attention to detail and planning that must have gone into the development of this story that makes me really appreciate the efforts of the author.  The way things have been integrated into the story makes the world building that is taking place here appear to be only a small part of a much larger universe.

We could be reading only a portion of what has the potential to be an epic work of fiction. That is what excites me the most about this saga.  There is so much more that can be explored further and I for one hope for plenty more to come from the Jason Crane world."

About the Author

Richard Gleaves never planned to be a novelist, but one Halloween he visited the real town of Sleepy Hollow and something bit him. He was standing in the Old Dutch Burying Ground, which according to legend is the site of the Horseman's burial, when he was struck by a story, fully formed, about the last descendant of Ichabod Crane returning to Sleepy Hollow.

Returning home, he started typing. The full tale (3 enormous novels) took over half a million words and three years to achieve. The Jason Crane Sleepy Hollow Trilogy was written largely onsite as Richard returned over and over to the Hollow, walking around the modern town with a tape recorder-- rediscovering the haunts of Washington Irving, writing scenes at 2 a.m. while wandering the graves of the cemetery or dangling his legs off a broken colonial-era bridge deep in the woods.

Jason Crane's Sleepy Hollow adventure was an adventure for its author as well, taking him down into old aqueducts, to historic societies and Hudson Valley landmarks. The "young adult" tone of
Rise Headless and Ride gave way to darker mysteries and more adult themes in Bridge of Bones and General of the Dead and an entire universe opened up. A universe of hidden witches, a Great Curse, Headless Horseman, family secrets, murder, ancestral fortunes, puzzle locks, young love, and persistent everyday evils, all braided together into a Halloween epic that's impossible to put down.
