Synopsis:
An infamous love, destined nevermore,

For death could not claim, the enchanting Lenore.

Cursed by the malevolent spirit of the Headless Horseman, Ireland Crane ventures to Manhattan in search of a way to break her soul crushing bond. Instead, she discovers the lines between fact and fiction are blurring once more. Croaking ravens. Telltale hearts. Could the works of Poe be coming to pass with handsome Wall Street Midas Ridley Peolte as their unwilling target?

She walks the Earth, a plague on mankind,

searching for he, her rotted heart doth pine.

Together, the two unknowingly release a dark force death itself could not tame. Surrounded by the unrelenting violence and mayhem they’ve unleashed, Ireland feels her control over the Horseman slipping. Before the beast within consumes her, she and her crew must follow the clues of the dead to right a centuries’ old wrong. Will it be enough to sate the Horseman’s appetite?

Raven (The Legends Saga, #2)My Review:
Raven by Stacey Rourke

We've seen twisted fairy tales, now with Rourke's brilliant writing we have twisted classics...and I love them. Age old favorites come alive in the Raven, a contemporary, suspense filled, mystery with a dazzling paranormal twist.

Ireland Crane is back. She is trying to track down the mystery behind her cursed tattoo in Manhattan. But she soon finds herself caught up in more than she ever imagined.

We've got horseman, ghouls and ravens, oh my.

I loved this story. Rourke hooked me immediately. Fast paced, non-stop nail biting action makes this story jump off the pages.

Now that Poe's writing has been added into the mix, I can't wait to see where Rourke takes us next. If the first two books in this series is anything to go on, Rourke will masterfully tie it all together.
