Sleepy Hollow: Bridge of Bones
Sleepy Hollow: Bridge of Bones (Jason Crane) (Volume 2) - Richard Gleaves

by Richard Gleaves

 

I read the first book of this series last year and the first couple of chapters did a good job of bringing back all the references and continuing characters, enough to make me want to kill one of them, but he was mean to the dog.

 

In some places this one felt a little slower than the first book, but there was fast action in others. Also I find it a little difficult to identify with teenage characters in general. It basically continues the story where it left off, with Jason trying to protect his inheritance from his crooked guardian and to stay alive through all the ghostly happenings.

 

Jason is a likeable character and this story was significantly heavier on supernatural happenings than the first one. Despite some slow bits at the beginning and in the middle where some back story gets revealed, there was never any question that I would finish it. There was more of magic and 'gifts' in this one as well as a more prevalent presence of the Horseman and other ghosts.

 

The faster bits were an exciting ride and I enjoyed watching the characters develop further. There was almost exhausting fast action towards the end, but then it stopped with too many strands left unresolved so that you have to get the third book to see how it all turns out. For that, it loses a star. Otherwise it was a great read and I'm glad I've already got the third book so I don't have to decide whether to resist because of my anti-cliffhanger stance.

A reshuffle, Ghosts and Center square
Mirror Mirror - Anthony M. Strong
SLEEPY HOLLOW: Bridge of Bones (Jason Crane Book 2) - Richard Gleaves

It came to my attention that after already shuffling a few books around, the one I eventually started reading for center square is over 500 pages. It's a key position and a book I've been wanting to read, plus I've read too far to stop now!

 

So, after looking at my options, I've decided the one I had lined up for Ghosts isn't that important to me and I've moved Bridge of Bones to the Ghosts square and looked through my Horror folder specifically looking for something short for Center square.

 

Mirror, Mirror will do nicely. 53 pages. Phew!
