Not too long ago I wrote a blog post about reading Amanda Hocking's Hollowland book. I also made comment on how I'm not big on zombie books. That hasn't changed.
Well yesterday, bedridden with a stomach flu and desperately trying to forget about the chills and muscle aches, I downloaded the sequel. Hey, I figured my stomach was already screwed up, so it couldn't get much worse.
So Hollowmen picks up 6 months after Hollowland. Believable. New characters are introduced. Most die, along with some from the original book.
Lots of death (some gruesome so I would suggest only mature teens read the book). But mingled in with the death and despair comes a ray of hope. The message behind the book was spot on.
As a non-zombie fan it's hard for me to gush over this book. But I can say that it allowed me to forget how ill I felt for a few hours so that's gotta count for something, right?
Hollowland is still available as a free download on Kindle. Hollowmen was $2.99
Star rating: 4 out of 5
Thank you Amanda Hocking for helping me through a terrible day!
