Hollowmen by Amanda Hocking (Kindle Edition) – Read December 2, 2011
Official Description: (This is the second book of The Hollows series) After six months in the quarantine, Remy finds out things are much worse than she feared. Her plans to escape come with a heavy cost, and she realizes that zombies aren’t the worst of her problems. This is a young adult novel with language, violence, and sexual situations. Not recommended for readers under the age of 17.
My Take: I loved Hollowland (the first in this series) and I really enjoy Amanda Hocking as a writer. This book did have a few typos but I’ve seen worse. I have also seen a lot of mixed reviews for this book. It has been a few months since I read the first book so the only 2 characters I was attached to were Remy (our heroine) and Ripley (The Lioness). They are both in this book so I was happy. We start out with Remy 6 months after she helped her little brother Max escape from the medical lab at the quarantine and she is weak, depleted and cut up. She was a living lab rat with worse treatment than any animal. When all of a sudden she is thrust back into the world fighting for her life and again searching for Max and trying to find a safe place with the few survivors she made it out with. Remy is a tough chick, she grew up quickly and it shows, she’s hard and doesn’t want to let anyone in. I thought this book was very entertaining and had a few funny moments. Was it as good as Hollowland? No, but hopefully there will be more to come and some character issues will resolve and maybe the Zombies will be gone by the end…or everyone else.
