The Legends Saga #2
Purchase It Here: 

An infamous love, destined nevermore,
For death could not claim, the enchanting Lenore.
Cursed by the malevolent spirit of the Headless Horseman, Ireland Crane ventures to Manhattan in search of a way to break her soul crushing bond. Instead, she discovers the lines between fact and fiction are blurring once more. Croaking ravens. Telltale hearts. Could the works of Poe be coming to pass with handsome Wall Street Midas Ridley Peolte as their unwilling target?
She walks the Earth, a plague on mankind,

searching for he, her rotted heart doth pine.

Together, the two unknowingly release a dark force death itself could not tame. Surrounded by the unrelenting violence and mayhem they’ve unleashed, Ireland feels her control over the Horseman slipping. Before the beast within consumes her, she and her crew must follow the clues of the dead to right a centuries’ old wrong. Will it be enough to sate the Horseman’s appetite?
Hell hath no fury like a ghoul scorned.

~~I received this in exchange for an honest review~~ 

Have you ever read a book that threw you back in time to a place where Edgar Allen Poe, was only known as Edgar Allen? Or have you ever wondered why Edger Allen Poe was crazy or wrote the way he did? Well, this book gives us an insight on why he was the way he was. We look into his life, and his love for Lenore. We start off where we leave off in the first book Crane (if you haven't read that book, stop right now and go and get it!). Ireland is once again switching from herself to the Horseman. With the help of Rip Van Winkle, Noah Van Tassel and Ridley (who we meet in this book) She will try to come to terms with what she is. BUT there are things their new found friend (Ridley) is hiding. He is also a very important key that Ireland is going to need. Can she keep the Horseman at bay? Can she keep from killing more people? Will Noah leave her?

Stacey is a master at looking at stories that we grew up hearing and turning them into something that is much more grownup than the stories that we have heard in the past. This time she takes on Edgar Allen Poe. We see what happened to him as a baby, all the way up until he is a man. She dives deep into the psychosis of his brain and why he writes about the dark and the death that he sees. 

I couldn't put this book down! I love the way that Stacey writes! She writes like she was witness to every thing that happened. It is detailed and makes you believe that you are where they are fighting with the demons that live within them. Get this book now!!!

Check out the First Book in the Series, Crane, on Goodreads:
The Horseman is unending,
his presence shan’t lessen.
If you break the curse,
you become the legend.

Washington Irving and Rip Van Winkle had no choice but to cover up the deadly truth behind Ichabod Crane’s disappearance. Centuries later, a Crane returns to Sleepy Hollow awakening macabre secrets once believed to be buried deep.

What if the monster that spawned the legend lived within you?

Now, Ireland Crane, reeling from a break-up and seeking a fresh start, must rely on the newly awakened Rip Van Winkle to discover the key to channeling the darkness swirling within her. Bodies are piling high and Ireland is the only one that can save Sleepy Hollow by embracing her own damning curse.

But is anyone truly safe when the Horseman rides?

 There is nothing worse than being put on the spot and asked to talk about yourself. For me it brings back that inevitable moment in a new school when the teacher would ask me to stand up, introduce myself and tell the class something about myself. I was always worried I would blurt out something stupid that I would get teased for. Something like, “My name’s Stacey and I like pickles!” Then for the rest of the school year I’d be known as the Pickle Girl and let’s be honest, no one wants that. So to avoid such a faux pas I will simply say that I love to write. It allows me to get my crazy out just enough that I can function as a normal member of society.
