Description from Goodreads:
An impossible truth. An impossible love.
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 whose dark truths they are only beginning to guess....
Wow! Just wow! I literally just finished reading The Haunted and I have to say I was really blown away! As you may know The Haunted is the sequel to The Hollow, and while the first book may have been a little slow this one definitely makes up for it! You simply have to read The Hollow if for no other purpose then to read The Haunted!
Abbey has a few hard spots to get through in the beginning but then has somewhat of a revelation...I don't want to say too much and give anything away. This book is full of romance (I swear I got butterflies when Caspian took his shirt off), mystery and suspense! And the ending KILLS me!! What a cliff hanger! I'm really bummed that the next book in the trilogy doesn't come out until September 1, 2011!
Quote from The Haunted:
"I feel all these things, Abbey," he continued on. "Rage that I can't run my fingers through your hair. Sorrow that I can't lay my face next to yours. Agony that I cant steal the breathe from your lips. I cant' eat or breathe or sleep for wanting to touch you, and yet I don't eat or breathe or sleep. I'm just here. Stuck between."
