Raven ( The Legends Saga #2)
By Stacey Rourke
Synopsis from goodreads:
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
Again a big fan of the cover
To me this series just keeps getting better. Ireland, Noah and Rip are back and heading to Manhattan to find answers. The run into Ridley who wouldn’t ya know has a tie to Poe. I love the backstory of Edgars life in the past and reading how he grew up with his affliction. Then coming back to the present and reading how Ridley deals with it and of course all the “fun” the gang get into when the long dead love Lenore comes back from the grave.
I find the romance between Ireland and Noah to be rather sweet and I adore how attached she is to Rip.
Such a fun twist on Poe and the Headless Horseman and again the characters are wonderfully funny, witty and sarcastic. This book took me one day to read because I didn’t want to put it down. It was a wonderful continuation of the Legends Saga and it has a wonderful cliffhanger/heartbreaking of an ending!
