Hollow Blood! Book One of the debut Sleepy Hollow Horrors by Austin Dragon
Ichabod Crane is dead! Everyone knows it. The Horseman took him—like so many others—one dark night in 1790. All that remained of the town’s amiable schoolmaster was his hat on the side of the road, with a shattered pumpkin beside it. But soon the fearful townspeople of Sleepy Hollow realized that the terrifying Horseman, that haunted their region for ages, had also disappeared, inexplicably, after that night. They were free!
That was 10 years ago. And a lone stranger has come to their quiet town.
He is friendly enough, well-mannered, educated, but there is a secret about this man—he is not what he seems. Suspicions grow. The whispers of gossip begin. All of Sleepy Hollow is soon turned upside-down when they learn the truth.
It is only the beginning, as they find themselves in the path of his black vengeance, his hunt for the foul murderer of Ichabod Crane. This stranger threatens not only their lives by his presence, but their very souls by bringing about the return of the hellish Headless Horseman!
For Sleepy Hollow, will death be upon them all?
Hollow Blood and The Devil’s Patch are both books of the two-part Sleepy Hollow Horrors.
“This is the story of what happened to Ichabod Crane and how Julian Crane becomes to believe in evil and the supernatural. This is a gripping and dark tale that will creep you out at just the right moments and have you questioning what you know and don’t know. A great new twist on the legend of sleepy hollow.”
“A very compelling take on an age old tale – the ending was perfect and I really hope that there will be more soon.”
“It is impossible not to get wrapped up in this unbelievable and remarkable horror. He has included in his horror story a touch of mystery also.”

I haven’t really read books in the ‘horror’ genre. Mystery, suspense, thriller – those are up my alley. I love being kept on the edge of my seat and that is exactly what Hollow Blood did.
We have all heard the legend of the Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane. While I have heard the story, I have to admit, I never paid much attention so being able to read Hollow Blood and get more details was incredibly intriguing to me.
The stranger that enters the town is one that I had suspicions of from the very beginning. You know how you get that “feeling” about people that something isn’t what it says it is. That was him. There was… something… about that man and his inquiring. His story didn’t quite match up and neither did he.
I am telling you, I could not read this book fast enough and fell asleep with it many times because I refused to put it down and go to sleep.
I cannot wait to get my hands on book 2. This is definitely a read that I am sure I could read more than once (which is quite unusual for me) but I really did enjoy reading it! Austin Dragon seems like a great author and I look forward to checking out some of his other books.
The Devil’s Patch! Book Two (and conclusion) of the debut Sleepy Hollow Horrors by Austin Dragon.
Ten years ago Ichabod Crane disappeared! The Horseman took him—like so many others—one dark night in 1790. All that remained of the town’s amiable schoolmaster was his hat on the side of the road, with a shattered pumpkin beside it. But soon the fearful townspeople of Sleepy Hollow realized that the terrifying Horseman, that haunted their region for ages, had also disappeared, inexplicably, after that night. They were free!
Then a lone Julian Crane—Ichabod’s nephew—arrived in Sleepy Hollow.
He was friendly enough, well-mannered, charming, but he hid his true intentions—his personal hunt for the foul murderer of his dear uncle—and he single-handedly turned Sleepy Hollow upside-down in his quest of vengeance.
Now he knows the truth of who killed his uncle—and the many, many other victims—and that murderer is not a man of flesh and blood. But can he and his Super Posse stop this evil thing? They are no longer in Sleepy Hollow. They have tracked it to its accursed domain—The Devil’s Patch.
Will Julian, or any of them, survive the wrath of the Headless Horseman?
