Review

The action is non-stop. It starts on the first page and really doesn't let up at all... Finally we have a female lead that can do things for herself! Remy is strong and courageous and does things her way to survive.

Remy, the 19 year old protagonist is facing `the end of times'; a post-apocalyptic world where a rabies type virus has turned the majority of the population into zombies. Zombies that roam with an insatiable hunger and are particularly fond of human flesh; one bite, one splash of zombie blood or saliva in an open wound and you become infected. That is if you survive.

Remy and her 8 year old brother Max were brought to a government run quarantine by a group of soldiers who saved them during a zombie raid; Max was sick and stayed on a different floor in the medical wing. Beck, a soldier that took an interest in Remy and Max; taught her how to fight the zombies, not just with guns but with whatever was available, that along with her guts and instinct was a gift that saved her and others countless times.

Zombies overtake the quarantine, yet in all the fright, terror and pandemonium Remy manages to escape bringing along Harlow, an endearing 13 year old who refuses to stay. Amidst the chaos she finds out that only her brother Max and select government doctors and scientists were evacuated to a quarantine 'near' this one. Off into the Zombie filled wasteland they go. They'll soon find out that zombies aren't the only thing to fear.

During their travels they meet Blue, a medical intern with good insight and judgment, Lazlo, a famous recording artist who is a bit eccentric, anxious and easy on the eyes and my personal favorite; Ripley, a zombie killing lion who rocks! They make a sort of unspoken team together set out to find the quarantine, each for their own reasons. Along the way they face, among other terrifing ordeals crazy cults, Mad Max crazy wanna-be's and other 'humans' can be just as vicious as the zombies.

Amanda Hocking does a decent job of crafting a post-apocalyptic zombie story with likable characters and a somewhat interesting plot. The protagonist is Remy, a teenage girl facing humanity's doom at the hands (and gnarly teeth) of flesh-eating zombies. In the chaos of a zombie attack she is separated from her little brother and the story is essentially her harrowing quest to find him. Along the way she meets other survivors who join her in her dangerous quest. Remy is a strong character who, for reasons that aren't really clear, inspires devotion and loyalty from pretty much everyone who joins her ragtag group including a full-grown zombie-killing female lion. Yes, a lion. It even rides in cars with them. They at one point encounter a group who has several tigers. I'm not making this up. This isn't the only thing about Hollowland that made me roll my eyes.

This is overall a good book and I wanted to like it but it is plagued by annoyances such as hordes of comma splices, typographical errors, missing, misused and misspelled words and implausible and cliched plot devices. Much of this is simply due to the fact that, as a self-published work, it did not have the benefit of an editor's touch. But then a WRITER should know the difference between "lulled" and "lolled", "except" and "accept", "idea" and "ideal". Then there is Ms. Hocking's broad-strokes writing style. With the exception of the main character, there isn't much in the way of character development. Every person in the story is a two-dimensional cutout, a device to move the story along and so I just couldn't really CARE about any of them.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5

I love horror. In the past, I would read nothing but. It encapsulated my every reading and viewing experience for years. There was just something about how much these works, when done well, could be so emotionally and intellectually viable, that made them so appealing.

In this regard, I've only had one complaint - the dearth of female contributors to the genre. Truth be told, I adore the feminine perspective, but their presence has been lacking. Sure, we have Anne Rice, but she hasn't written anything that's appealed to me since Memnoch the Devil. And then we have Stephanie Meyer...but to put her works of paranormal teenage lust under the horror umbrella is severely misguided. And that's about it.

But then recently I discovered Amanda Hocking, and I think I'm in love.

Now, most of Hocking's books definitely fall into the paranormal romance/young adult category, which doesn't necessarily interest me. However, I received her newest novel, Hollowland, as a review copy, and I have to tell you...this is horror done just about perfectly.

Hollowland is the story of Remy, a nineteen-year-old survivor of the zombie apocalypse. The novel throws you right into the action; at the beginning, the quarantine she is living in (somewhere in the Nevada desert) falls under attack by the hungry undead. She escapes, along with a thirteen-year-old girl named Harlow. Remy's younger brother Max, who also lived there, had been evacuated when the invasion began. Remy, as his only surviving family member, takes it upon herself to find him once more.

Just as with most apocalyptic novels, this one is a journey. Remy and Harlow head north, in search of Max.
