About the Book

A stranger comes to the quiet town of Sleepy Hollow looking for their late schoolmaster. There is a secret about this man—he is not what he seems. He does not believe that Ichabod was killed by their chief apparition of the land— the Headless Horseman.

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?

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Everyone knows the legend of Sleepy Hollow but the Headless Horseman had been scarce for ten years. His last victim, Ichabod Crane. A stranger shows up questioning the story and believing this was a cover for foul play. He may get more than he bargained for. [Austin Dragon] does a wonderful job being true to the original story while writing Hollow Blood and asking the "what if"? The superstitions of the era led to many stories but few as well known as the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The idea that there may have been more to it is a great twist." - Christine Hooker

- [...] This is beautifully written descriptively speaking – a pervading sense of menace creeping up on the reader as it does Julian, whose beliefs are tested to the limits as he tries to discover the truth. The historical flavour of the story is excellent, a real sense of place and time where superstition is rife and anything could happen. The supernatural elements are blended seamlessly into the plot and there is an eclectic and genuinely intriguing bunch of characters to give the whole thing some punch. A very compelling take on an age old tale – the ending was perfect and I really hope that there will be more soon." - Liz Wilkins

- "Being a fan of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow this book excited me. I gobbled it up. This was a exquisitely written fun twist to the tale of Ichabod Crane.[...] 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." - Hello-Booklover (Amazon)

- "[...] In quite the departure from his previous philosophical futuristic science fiction, author Austin Dragon brings to vivid life the real story of Ichabod Crane, the Headless Horsemen, and the storied events at little Sleepy Hollow. In finely-tuned historical detail, a lively cast of characters is introduced to catch readers' attention. What a different, excitingly new, perspective!" - Mallory Heart
