It had a good plot, but the horrible writing pretty much pulled it under and held it down until it drowned. The writing is full of minuscule details we really just don't need. Every single movement a character makes, every single shift in their weight or twitch of their fingers is described in painful detail. The entire book is filler. The characters are unbelievable and annoying and the romance was pretty much the focus of the story. This could have been a really great sleepy hollow, headless horseman reselling. Instead it turned into this. I'll probably read the other two books over Christmas break, while I'm bored out of my skull, but I don't expect to enjoy them.
