“I am Ichabod Crane, born in the year 1747. It seems this is the year 2013 Anno Domini, and I have been given new life—how, I know not; why, I know not. I will discern the truth—if, that is, I can keep my head.”
In “Sleepy Hollow,” a supernatural twist on Washington Irving’s classic short story, Ichabod Crane has been pulled two-and-a-half centuries through time to find that he and detective Abbie Mills are humanity’s last hope in the war against evil. Passionate, intelligent, and wryly funny, Crane has always used journals to collect thoughts and documents that may prove useful later, and The Secret Journal of Ichabod Craneoffers an unprecedented look at the battle also raging inside his fascinating mind.
On the pages within, Crane shares new memories of the American Revolution; more amusing reflections on modern-day phenomena, from the Internet to Election Day; and private thoughts about Abbie, Katrina, and others. He also includes hidden case files; secret Freemason puzzles; selections from George Washington’s mysterious Bible; and photos, letters, and drawings he has collected along the way. Filled with detail about past battles and vanquished monsters, as well as clues about those he and Abbie have yet to face, this journal is not just the ultimate repository for fans, but the key to Sleepy Hollow’s future—and the world’s.
I received a copy for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
Sleepy Hollow is one of my favorite shows. Tom Mison is HOT and I have always been a fan of the original Legion of Sleepy Hollow tale.
The Secret Journal of Ichabod Crane covers the first season of the show. It was a fun read because it had Ichabod’s thoughts as well as police reports, sketches, genealogy, etc. The show is fantastic and so is the book. You can still enjoy the book even if you haven’t watched the show. Especially if you love the supernatural and history. Some of my favorite bits were Ichabod’s memories of early America and the Revolutionary war.
