Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

I‘ve been on an Amanda Hocking binge lately. She’s great. Her latest “Hollowland” certainly was worth it. Admittedly I had to download Amazon’s free Kindle for PCs package before I could buy it. The price of the book certainly stunned me 99c US. What? Come on, after the Trylle Trilogy was so amazing you’re telling me she’s still selling her books dirt cheap? Why? Her writings great, why give it away so cheaply?

I don’t know the answer just yet, but I will find out. Meanwhile you and I can be very frugal and get the book now, before anyone in the business knows what a bargain they’re giving away. Hollowland won’t disappoint you. Oh did I mention Zombie Apocalypse? Yeah, that’s what Hollowland is all about. Love it!

Hollowland – the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows
“This is the way the world ends; not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door.”

Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way – not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.



  1. Hollowland sounds great. Zombies are right up my alley (hopefully not literally)! Speaking of post-apocalyptic novels, I’ve just finished The Passage by Justin Cronin. Absolutely brilliant read and a highly recommend it!

  2. Yes I’ve read Justin’s book. And remember if Zombies are up your alley, you can buy that zombie proof house, you’ll stay safe then. I liked Hollowland because it didn’t give you that ‘romancy’ nonsense that some zombie books are trying to share. Zombies want brains, pure and simple, not love, they just want to eat and I’m happy that Amanda gives you that in her novel. It felt similar to Jonathon Golden’s “Soulless” which is a fantastic read.
