I am so glad that I gave this book a shot - and so will you.

Everything flowed together so nicely that I quickly found myself getting caught up in the story and immediately liking the main character, Allison.

So needless to say, in the end I really loved Allison, I respected her and really enjoyed reading the story from her point of view.

I absolutely love being pleasantly surprised by books and authors that I'm not familiar with and I am pleased to say this was one of those times.

The Hollow of Mont Noir was so well written. Everything flowed together so nicely that I quickly found myself getting caught up in the story and immediately liking the main character, Allison. She was a strong character that took things in stride with a lot of bravery to back up her choices and decisions. I liked watching her grow throughout the book and I really can see her becoming a kick butt character in future installments.

Riordan was awesome and such a great character as well. Even though early on it was pretty obvious who and what he was and even what had happened to Logan, Allison's brother, the story line held my attention and I found myself wanting more.

This whole book had something of a Twilight feel to it but yet it has originality and wasn't a generic copy. Although I do think that Twilight lovers will really enjoy this one as well as those that want something different from Twilight (and even those that didn't enjoy Twilight) I think will like this one too.

I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Krey is a very talented writer and she has a new fan in me. I plan on reading the whole of this series and I can see it quickly becoming a favorite.

I give this one a very solid 4.5 Stars!!

I love reading. So when books pile up on my desk because my "day job" infringes on my reading time, I get cranky. And if the book I grab out of said pile isn't satisfying, I get really cranky.

The Hollow of Mont Noir started off a little rocky for me. The beginning couple of chapters were narrative, but it was helpful to have the background information to set the story's stage.

Allison Spencer is a likeable character, despite some of her not-so-nice moments. Her empathic ability with animals is interesting and not overdone. My only complaint about Allison is she was too mature for her age. Sometimes a teen is really just a teen.

Other secondary and tertiary characters helped round the story out, but Riordan's character nearly stole the show for me. He is interesting, honorable, and added great moments of conflict. That's a testament to the attention Ms. Krey poured into character and plot development.

I will say, while this novel isn't especially fast paced, once I started reading I couldn't put the book down. I smiled with satisfaction when the book ended (so many books have cliff-hanger endings), but I also sighed with disappointment. I am not a patient person, and I now have to wait for Ms. Krey to publish the next book in this series!

This is exactly what you expect and want from a YA paranormal book: a good bit of mystery, some creepy happenings, a nice romance, a heroine that you really like and an overall good story that you don't want to put down. I really enjoyed this one if you can't tell.

Between Allison's "Crittervision", her missing brother, moving away before her senior year of high school & the new boy no one likes but her; she has a lot going on in her world. Allison was a very likeable character so it made reading her story that much easier and by the time she starts her new school and we meet Riordan it becomes a book you have to keep reading. You've just GOT to learn all the secrets that are going on around her!

While I wouldn't describe the book as fast paced, I would definitely say that it is well paced. I'm a fan of the YA Paranormal genre and this is one that I would highly recommend. I'm looking to forward to reading more of this series in the future!

What an unexpected surprise! With the short blurb about the book, and a cover that did not reveal much, I was not sure what to expect with this one. Much to my pleasure, it turned out to be a wonderful story.

Many supernatural romance stories kind of flow in a very similar fashion, but The Hollow of Mont Noir is unique. Nothing was predictable, and it just had a tone to it that made me want to dig into my comfy chair and stay put. The pacing was very comfortable - not too fact, but no where near slow. The writing style brought so much to the book. The author has a way with words that built intrigue, but not so much that you were stressed by the time you go an answer. Just a very pleasant book.

Allison in my opinion is pretty typical. She is not popular, but she is not in the lower rung of the student caste. She is faced with a very stressful situation - her brother comes up missing - and then her parents throw another twist on her - they are moving! And moving right before her senior year in high school!!! She hates the fact that she has had to move, but she deals with it. She makes some new friends, and even finds a boy she is immediately attracted to. However, this boy is not liked by others, has the nickname "Bulldog" and is known to be rude - a jerk. What we eventually find out about him, though, is really what makes the story!!!

It is in fact, the supernatural element that brings this book to life. Not only is Allison the "Crazy Animal Girl" with her Crittervision, but we find out she has some "magic in her blood". It is not what happens in school that holds the intrigue, it is what happens beyond the school day - starting when she goes for a run in the woods.

I did not know until the end that this book was the beginning of a series.
