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!!

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.

This is not a fast paced, edge of your seat read. But it is still interesting nonetheless. The story starts off telling us about Allison's unique ability to sense animals. She can tell you what species it is and what it's feeling. She calls it her 'Crittervision'. I thought that was a pretty cute name for it :). And then it tells us about her older brother Logan who has suddenly disappeared into thin air. The rumor is that he ran away with his girlfriend. The police and pretty much ruled it as such, and aren't really putting to much work into hunting him down. Allison's parents decide to take matters into their own hands by moving closer to where he disappeared and conducting their own search and investigations. The place the move to is called the Hollow of Mont Noir. Allison is pretty upset because, it's a tiny town with nothing in it, in the middle of nowhere. Plus it's her senior year, and she has to leave all her friends and her boyfriend behind to spend her last year of high school with a bunch of people she doesn't know. I sympathized with her, but at first I found her to be a little annoying. I thought she seemed a bit spoiled and bratty. She would talk about how it was all her brother's fault for disappearing, that she has to leave her city and shopping malls and her boyfriend/friends. But my opinion of Allison changed dramatically as the story progressed.

It turns out, Allison is actually a really wonderful person. She is someone I would want to be friends with. The number one thing I like about her, is that she does not let the opinion of others effect her own in any way! She makes her own opinions and if that goes against the majority, well that's the way it is. If all her friends thought some song was lame, but she liked it, she would rock it out without a second thought.

One of the best thing about being a book blogger is getting to read books I maybe otherwise wouldn't have known about or wouldn't have selected on my own. I love reading. I'm grateful to Jennifer Kray for sending me her book to read through. She is so generously offering up an e-copy of her book here for a giveaway too. :) Thanks, Jennifer.

So, let me first say, I liked The Hollow of Mont Noir. It was easy to read and get into. Allison is an unusual girl with an unusual ability. I really had to appreciate her kindness and desire to treat others with respect even when she didn't feel like it. Allison is an easy character to like.

As I was reading I had a few "Twilight-ish moments". Some things in this story were just very similar to Twilight. I'm not saying that is good or bad, it just is. The main make character reminded me of Edward because of his very proper way of speaking and his formal way of presenting himself. He is untouchable and unapproachable at school. Then we have the wolf aspect. Allison has a visitor in her room at night and leaving early before the parents can catch wind. Allison also gets it in her mind that she wants to be "turned" and seems determined to find out how the process happens and who can do it. See what I mean? A few Twilight-ish elements.

I found the Allison's whole family dynamic interesting. When her brother goes missing, her parents do whatever they think it takes to search for their son. It had me wondering what I would do in a similar situation. Her parents have different ways of coping and I just found it interesting. Allison sort of gets lost in their preoccupation with finding their son.
