Book Review: Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

A deadly virus that makes people turn into zombies has broken out, and spread very quickly throughout the world.  When the government-run quarantine where Remy King, 19, is attacked by zombies, she goes off in search of her younger brother, Max, who is in a different part of the complex.  However, when she learns that he has already been evacuated, but no-one knows where to, Remy knows that she cannot rest until she finds him again.

This is the first story I have read to feature the apocalypse or zombies…and I loved it!  There is action and drama from start to finish.  Remy is single-minded in her determination to get to her brother, and nothing or no-one be they human or zombie will get in her way.  The places that we visit as she makes her journey to find her brother are interesting and varied.

All the characters and their personalities were believable; their interaction together was so life-like.  The detail and descriptions provided showed us everything Remy could see, when she could see it.

As the story progressed, twists and turns in the plot kept me wondering just how things were going to turn out.  I couldn’t imagine a more perfect ending to a story.

Hollowland was simply another story I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and found it very hard to put it down for any great length of time.  I am certain that I will return to read this again.

Highly recommended.

I downloaded Hollowland for free from Smashwords.
