Review: The Haunted by Jessica Verday

The Haunted (The Hollow, #2)
After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with—the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead—Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, ready to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into her schoolwork, her perfume making, and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be her ticket to getting over Caspian once and for all.
But Abbey can never get over Caspian, and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side, for Caspian is a Shade and Abbey is his destiny. They are tied not only to each other but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow and to the famous legend that binds their fates—a legend with dark truths that they are only beginning to guess.

series: The Hollow #2


I was hesitant to listen to The Haunted, mostly because I was less than thrilled with The Hollow, book 1 in the series.
There was more intrigue in The Haunted, still very vague, still very immature and unfocused.  The mystery behind why Abbey can see and speak to and hear Caspian is a mystery to them all…and the reader.
The relationship between Abbey and Caspian is creepy and disturbing.  He is obsessed with her, jealous if she spends time with anyone one other than him.  Sounds like the beginnings of an abusive relationship to me.  Aren’t girls warned to avoid guys that act that way? 
Anyway, the story was a continuation of the previous book, basically from where it left off.  A true series.  Which annoys me in a way that I can’t quite describe with words since I won’t be finishing the series out.
There’s too many questions, not enough answers, and it’s very, very disturbing!
1 Tree: Creepy and disturbing, and not in the good way
Get to reading,
