Wake the Hollow by Gaby Triana…Release Day Blitz & Review

Wake The Hollow Release Day Blitz!

Forget the ghosts, Mica. It’s real, live people you should fear.

Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It’s been six years since she chose to live with her father in Miami instead of her eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.

This town will suck you in and not let go.

Sleepy Hollow may be famous for its fabled headless horseman, but the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica’s family as outsiders. But ghostly voices carry on the wind, whispering that her mother’s death was based on hate…not an accident at all. With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must awaken the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother’s fate.

Find the answers.

Unless, of course, the answers find you first.

Wake the Hollow





Wake the Hollow is a great YA suspense novel with a touch of romance involved. I loved Triana’s take on this legendary work – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

I can’t say enough about this book. First off, Trianadoes a fabulous job of giving you details about Irving, all his works plus his personal details to give more depth to this story. Even if you aren’t a fan of Irving, this book will have you wanting to look things up on google and wanting to learn more about everything that is Irving related.

Back to the book – I loved how Triana wove in her own modern ideas into this tale and make it more intriguing to read about these tales. Mica has returned home only to discover as she stays there longer, she is starting to act like her mother did. She hears voices, sees apparitions and can’t seem to explain why it’s all happening to her.

“Forget the ghosts, Mica. It’s real, live people you should fear.” 

Triana does a great job of keeping you in suspense throughout this book. There are many people involved and you only have hunches as to who could be behind what. Triana does a great job of retelling the Sleepy Holly story wit her own twists to it along with the added mystery of Mica’s mother and their family history. It’s a very crafty story line.

“All these, however, were mere terrors of the night, phantoms of the mind that walk in darkness.”

I would really recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good YA suspense story or anyone that enjoys The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Readers will find themselves engrossed in the story quickly and enjoying the modern twist on this legendary tale.
