It's Thursday, and time for another Bookanista review. Today I am reviewing a great Indie book - SEVERED by Dax Varley. If you like Sleepy Hollow tales, you'll LOVE this one. But before I get into that, here is a peek at the other Bookanistas and their fav books this week:

Katrina’s still haunted by her encounter with the Headless Horseman - the night he beckoned to her. Now he has risen again, slashing heads and terrorizing the quiet countryside.
Her only joy during this dismal darkness comes when Ichabod Crane, a gorgeous young man from Connecticut, moves to Sleepy Hollow and their attraction turns to romance.
When the Horseman marks Ichabod as his next victim, Katrina, despite dangerous efforts to save him, sees no other choice than for them to flee.
But the Horseman awaits. Now it’s up to her to sever the horror and alter the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
I was super excited to read this book. I mean, I love classic horror. I LOVE the Sleepy Hollow legends. So I was bound to love this one. Still, there is a lot of pressure to get it right, you know.
I am happy to say that this story MORE than met my expectations. SEVERED is a historical novel that brings the Revolutionary War era to life, without making it difficult to read. It is a great spin on a classic tale, telling it from a fresh point of view that makes this story come to life. If you like new takes on classic tales, you MUST read this one. Epic is the best word to describe it! And dude...LOVE the cover!
You can pick up SEVERED at Amazon and other fine retailers.
