Product Description

An infamous love, destined nevermore,
For death could not claim, the enchanting Lenore.

Cursed by the malevolent spirit of the Headless Horseman, Ireland Crane ventures to Manhattan in search of a way to break her soul crushing bond. Instead, she discovers the lines between fact and fiction are blurring once more. Croaking ravens. Telltale hearts. Could the works of Poe be coming to pass with handsome Wall Street Midas Ridley Peolte as their unwilling target?

She walks the Earth, a plague on mankind,
searching for he, her rotted heart doth pine.

Together, the two unknowingly release a dark force death itself could not tame. Surrounded by the unrelenting violence and mayhem they’ve unleashed, Ireland feels her control over the Horseman slipping. Before the beast within consumes her, she and her crew must follow the clues of the dead to right a centuries’ old wrong. Will it be enough to sate the Horseman’s appetite?

Hell hath no fury like a ghoul scorned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Actual Rating - 3.5 Stars 13 January 2017
By C at Prisoners of Print - Published on Amazon.com

I love the notion of bringing classic literature to light with a modern twist so I was super excited when I stumbled on Stacey Rourke’s Legends Saga. The first book had me utterly captivated so when I learned that the series would continue on, I couldn’t wait to dive in and see how Rourke would put her own personal spin on Edgar Allen Poe. Though I am less familiar with his background than I am with the Headless Horseman, there was something that pulled me in and made my heart beat faster.

“What does a monster do at night? They live.”

I was pleasantly surprised to see the return of characters that I had come to adore from the first book. Given that it was a different legend, I expected to have the originals disappear. However, I greatly respected how effortlessly the author wove the tales together. She seamlessly pulled Ireland (and her crew) into this book and I think it really helped to invest me in those initial moments. She also drew me in with the addition of Ridley and the connection he came to have with our fearless heroine.

“This angelic beauty was the elixir to his particular ailment. For that, he would be her slave … forevermore.”

Though I appreciated the writing and the ideas in Raven, I had a really hard time connecting to the story despite how much I loved certain aspects of it. I honestly found it to be a bit more scattered than the first book of the series. With scenes jumping quite often, it resulted in surface level dialogue and no real movement. Not only did I have a hard time with the current-day personalities, but the detail and scene building wasn’t up to par with her previous book and it left me wanting so much more.

“Yet, ye be warned, as the raven doth fly, for the rest to live … one must die.”

I wholeheartedly believe that readers will fall in love with Ireland, Noah, Rip, and even Ridley. There is something about the way Rourke writes them that creates these soft spots, leaving you feeling sympathy, empathy, sadness, and happiness right alongside them. They’re hard not to love and see where they will end up. Rourke also dropped a plethora of hints in Raven as to where she will be going in the next book, and I have to say that I am insanely curious to see where she takes it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Legends Saga is absolutely AMAZING. There's really no other way I could put ... 19 August 2015
By Darcus Murray - Published on Amazon.com

Oh, this series. Stacey Rourke is twiddling my heartstrings and quickly becoming an auto-buy author for me even though I've only read two of her books.

The Legends Saga is absolutely AMAZING. There's really no other way I could put it. The way she weaves the past and the present and brings old fiction to modern day with a twist of truth and makes each one of these characters and stories her own. It's simply wonderful.

The first book, Crane, had it's creepy moments. I mean, it's inspired by Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and you can't do the Headless Horseman without a little spook. But Raven brought the creep-level to entirely new heights. The curse that poor Edgar (and later Ridley) had to endure is an absolutely terrible affliction and would easily drive anyone to madness. The spirits in this book were malicious and eery and determined to drive the cursed into oblivion. More than once I found myself a little creeped out and loving every minute of it. I might just have to see if I can give away a set of these books during Haunted Halloween.

If the story itself draws you in, then the characters are just the icing on the cake. They're so insanely believable and loveable that you don't want to let them go. Rourke weaves the tales so well that, at times, you honestly have to wonder if maybe some of it wasn't true. If some of these "legends" weren't true. In that way, making you believe in fiction, these books kind of remind me of those of Seth Grahame-Smith. Abraham Licoln: Vampire Hunter, for example.

It was really neat to see how she twisted Edgar Allan Poe (although I was bothered that she spelled his name, Allen, with an E instead of an A), his lost love Lenore and all the horrors he crafted so long ago. Poe has always been a favorite of mine and I loved every second of this book.

I'm eager to get to Steam, the next book in the series, because it also deals with two things that I love very very much and have always been fascinated in. The Salem Village Witch Trials and The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne have always been very close to my heart. I've been obsessed with Salem since I was old enough to know what it was about and I was, like, one of the only kids in school that actually enjoyed reading The Scarlet Letter. When most of my classmates were complaining because they thought it was boring, I was eating the story up. I've always loved it and I absolutely cannot wait to see what Rourke does with this next work of fiction!

Rating: 5 Stars.
Character: Poe & Rip.
Favorite Quote: "In my eyes you... will always be... a hero."

3.0 out of 5 stars Tired Mind 9 May 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Great storyline. I would have given it a 5, but I cannot stand the incorrectly- used words, incorrect words, bad punctuation and misspelling. After a while my mind just gets too tired of translating and I have to stop reading. Whatever happened to writers and editors who knew proper English??!

Raven: Fun, Spooky, Wildly Entertaining, Mystery and Adventure

I reviewed Crane earlier this month and I loved it! Needless to say I was anxious to read Raven and I wasn't disappointed.

Raven continues where book one, Crane left off . ---Which means you need to read book 1 first.

We rejoin Ireland Crane, Noah van Tassel, and Rip van Winkle (Ireland, Noah, and Rip) as they travel to Manhattan and search for answers to Ireland's Headless Horseman curse.

In Raven we are introduced to a young Edgar Allan Poe and from there author Stacey Rourke weaves her magic of intertwining tales from the past and the present as we explore Edgar's famous love for Lenore.

I'm not going to go into a big long review because all the things I want to gush about would ruin the story for you but I will wrap things up by saying...read this series.

The stories are a great blend of mystery and gothic spookiness. The author does a fantastic job of balancing the gory details with just the right amount of humor so that even the most squeamish (that would be me) can enjoy the stories and not have nightmares.

The ending wraps up the Edgar Allan Poe story but the Horseman's Curse remains and we know that there is much more for Ireland to discover.

The Legends Saga is a great series and I'm am looking forward to the next book in these spooky tales.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Stacey Rourke! 28 August 2016

I will start out by admitting I somehow missed that this was a real series, as in Ireland, Noah and Rip being in this book also. I thought this series was 3 separate story lines based on the legends (Ichabod Crane for the first one, and Edgar Allen Poe for this one). That being said, it took me a bit to start this one after reading the last. I can never stop mid series knowingly. The excitement I felt when I finally started this one was crazy! I would recommend this book to well just about anyone! :-D Ireland is still my favorite charter, the struggles she has with her inner demon. This series keeps getting better!
