Review: The Haunted by Jessica Verday

The Haunted (The Hollow, #2)
The Haunted by Jessica Verday

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....

  I enjoyed The Hollow even more than the first one! Abbey came even more alive, and I discovered so much more about her. She faces so many decisions, difficulties and trials, I ache for her. It is hard to put myself in her place, because I have no idea how I would react.
  Caspian is even more vulnerable and awesome in this one. We find out more about him and it only makes him even more desirable to me. Even though the mystery element is still there, some of my questions are answered and that doesn't detract.
   There is lots of conflict in this one and more of the bad guys are emerging. I still have lots of questions, and I am aching for the next books. We still have the character driven literaryness, but there is so much going on. The subplots are woven in really well.
    I've enjoyed this series, and recommend it.
