A curse, a task and a deadline, oh my…..
What if the folklore that your town centered around turned out to be more dark history than legend and placed your family directly in the crosshairs of a 200-year-old curse? Is there anything that you wouldn’t do to protect them?
Seventeen-year-old Stevie Nixon had hopes that her senior year at Sleepy Hollow High would be memorable. But finding a plain antique box, which contains a single yellowed paper, spells out dire consequences for her and everyone she loves. Suddenly everything in Stevie’s world has irrevocably changed, and chaos reigns. The only thing she is positive of is that this year will be unforgettable. That is, if she can beat the deadline.
Stevie sets out to unravel the mystery the clue hides and find a way to spare her family from the vengeance of an ancient curse. To have any chance of success she must rely on her old friends as well as newcomer, Ian Morris, a recent transplant to Sleepy Hollow who has embedded himself into the group. Stevie knows that she must challenge herself and her beliefs if she is to withstand the Fiendish Fall.
“Curses, ghosts and psychos, oh my! Does everything end with my death?” Stevie asked….
Growing up in Sleepy Hollow, NY, seventeen-year old Stevie Nixon had always believed that that the Legend of the Headless Horseman was just that—a legend. That was until she was thrust into the middle of a 200-year old curse. A curse cast by a vengeful witch on her great-times-eight grandfather, the horseman himself. Now, instead of worrying about which college she will be applying to during her senior year at Sleepy Hollow High, she’s more concerned about finding ways to break the curse—and save her life.
With the Winter Solstice, Stevie begins working on the second clue with the help of her family and friends. But it’s not clear sailing. Chris Lehr, one of her oldest and closest friends, is having major troubles of his own, and needs Stevie to help him through. Crushed between two looming problems, Stevie wonders if there is any way to manage both. Tensions and frustrations exacerbate Stevie’s dilemma until all she wants is to be done with this Wicked Winter.
Stevie Nixon feels as though she is caught at a major crossroad in life: college applications, final exams, prom, graduation and a 200-year old death threat. With the help of her family and friends, Stevie has triumphed in the first two tasks of breaking the curse that has plagued her family since the time of the Headless Horseman. Now, there is only one task left. She must piece together the clues and take the last step if she wants to survive this Savage Spring.
