Trapped within the essence of the Headless Horseman by the guilt of slaughtering her best friend, Ireland Crane follows the father of science fiction, HG Wells, in search of freedom from the curse that binds her. Instead, she discovers even he has a hidden agenda. A dark, relentless passion to be reunited with the woman he loves has driven him to manipulate time and a murderous Horseman. 

Yet heed my warning, as the Raven flies,

The Hessian will come … and you will die.

All that prevents Ireland from abandoning Wells’ twisted pursuit, or introducing him to her sword, are the undead witches haunting her. Begging for freedom from a vile succubus, the ghoulish coven leads Ireland and her crew on a journey through Salem’s sordid past. There, they learn there is more to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s history than a scarlet letter, and the secret they’ve uncovered seeks to destroy them all.

My Thoughts:

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I don't even know where to start; this book has left me speechless! Stacey did it again she combines amazing legends we all have grown to love and makes them her own. We're back with Ireland and the whole gang trying to help HG Wells in his pursuit to find his long lost wife which leads everyone to Salem. 

This book was absolute perfection and a great ending to the saga. Stacey had me at the edge of my seat with so many twists and turns, I was not expecting! It was so good; I had to read it in one sitting because I could not put it down. Like I've said in my previous reviews, Stacy's writing is just superb she makes the stories and characters come to life and I absolutely love it! I really enjoyed the character development all the characters go through. also love the way Stacey weaves in new characters into the story; it’s done so well it feels like they have been part of the story all along. I really enjoyed reading about Preen and HG Wells they both have a special place in my heart along with all the other characters. This book took me through and emotional roller-coaster; it scared the hell out of me at points, made me laugh and had me in tears. The ending, oh, the ending I don't want to spoil it so I'm just going to say and some may disagree with me, but I think it was perfect. 

This book was a bitter sweet ending to an amazing saga I have grown to love! It was very hard to say goodbye to all the amazing characters, but Stacey made sure to give them an amazing ending we will never forget. I'm currently in a book hangover that was caused by Miss. Stacey's magnificent writing, but I'm not mad; it’s going to take me a while to recover from it. Now with that said. if you have not picked this saga up, what are you waiting for?! It's amazing and the perfect October read! I myself need to get the physical copies! I just want to have them in my hands and just hold them close to me and then reread them! Yes, I'm weird.
