A Sizzling Dive Into Forbidden Passions

Hollow By Karina Halle Book Review


From childhood promises to dark secrets, Kat Van Tassel’s life takes a captivating turn. Set in the enigmatic village of Sleepy Hollow, Kat, once promised to her childhood friend Brom Bones, finds herself drawn to her older, enigmatic teacher, Ichabod Crane. After a mysterious four-year disappearance, Brom reappears, but he’s not the man Kat remembers. Violent and unstable, his reappearance coincides with a series of gruesome decapitations linked to the Headless Horseman legend.

As the three delve into the murders and Brom’s transformation, their desires unravel. Eager to uncover the truth behind the murders and Brom’s unstable behavior, Crane decides to mentor Brom, and they form a close bond, just as they do with Kat. However, as the three of them give in to their passions while searching for answers, Sleepy Hollow becomes increasingly perilous. They could become the next victims of the Headless Horseman or confront an ending even more perilous.
