Review: Legend by Karina Halle

November 05, 2023

In the scorching and riveting conclusion to Hollow, a dark academia and gothic romance reimagining of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Katrina Van Tassel, Ichabod Crane, and Brom Bones have unraveled the bone-chilling mystery of Sleepy Hollow's Headless Horseman.

But their journey is far from its end. As they share the enigmatic halls of Sleepy Hollow Institute, their lives become increasingly entangled, both emotionally and intimately. Amidst their exploration of dark desires, Kat grapples with the affections of two possessive men who hunger for not only her, but for each other.

As their passions deepen, unsettling secrets within the school's ancient coven come to light, threatening to unravel the very fabric of their existence. Each character faces a profound test, with one harboring a hidden past that could shatter their newfound unity.

In a suspenseful tale of desire, obsession, and the lurking shadows of Sleepy Hollow, these three souls will be pushed to the brink, facing the chilling consequences of their deepest secrets and darkest cravings.

Watch your head.

Legend by Karina Halle is a wickedly enticing blend of spooky, steamy, and dark academia, putting a unique spin on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The chemistry between the Kat, Crane, and Brom is electric, igniting the pages with passion and intensity. The steamy scenes are off-the-charts, delivering a sizzling reading experience.

What sets Legend apart is its intricate plot and rich lore, adding depth and keeping the story engaging from start to finish. You'll find yourself pleasantly surprised by unexpected twists and turns. The connection between the three characters feels genuine and natural, making their dynamic a joy to read.

I'm already counting down the days for the next book in the Gothic Shade of Romance series. Halle strikes a perfect balance between romance, suspense, smut, and magic, creating a multi-layered story that keeps you hooked. I didn't want it to end!

Legend has easily secured a spot as one of my top reads this year. I'm eagerly looking forward to what Karina Halle has in store next.
