Horseman (The Hollow #1) by Christopher Golden and Ford Lytle Gilmore

Interesting take on the Sleepy Hollow/Headless Horseman mythology that was undermined by serious plot holes and obvious plot devices. The book is written in a very cinematic manner, and clearly serves as the lead-in to a series, but I spent way too much time being annoyed with Aimee and then with the writers for so obviously shoe-horning the characters into dramatic action scenes instead of letting them develop in a way that felt unforced. Not a piece of YA literature I would recommend to anyone who isn’t looking for a fast, slight read a/o a twist on the traditional Sleepy Hollow tales.
