I was a big fan of the first book, Hollowland, and downloaded Hollowmen the minute I found out it was available. It took me under 2 hours to finish, so it's a pretty quick read. I want to be clear that I am a huge Amanda Hocking fan and I believe her writing has done nothing but improve as she continues to write and publish. I also want to make it clear that Hollowmen is very much worth reading! But I did have some issues with the book, pros and cons as with everything, so I'll detail them here. Please be warned- this review WILL contain some spoilers!

**SPOILER ALERT**

The heroine is a bit too cold and distant regarding taking on a new lover when her old one is out there waiting for her. Remy King doesn't have a problem sleeping with/making out with one guy and then moving onto the next one, showing very little remorse during what would be, for some people, an act which would cause some highly conflicted emotions. Remy is a bit colder than most girls, and love doesn't enter the equation in this book, which could explain her lack of guilt. But I found it off-putting that she would so easily disregard anything she felt for Lazlo and latch onto the next available guy.

I enjoyed the new characters added to the book, but they received very little backstory and were difficult to care about from the perspective of the reader. There were a lot of character deaths, but only two of them drew any kind of emotional reaction from me- one for the shock value and one because I genuinely liked the character. Characters I'd cared for in the first book were given a few terse lines to explain their fate, and some were left inexplicably for us to wonder what ever happened to them.

The ending was disappointing for me.

I really hate that my first review is going to be a bad one, but this book was so horrible I had to say something about it. I read a lot of books of different genres and after enjoying Hollowland so much I couldn't wait for the next one to come out. However, this book was so different from the first, it seemed like it was written by a different author. There was basically no plot. The characters were underdeveloped, there were lots of unrealistic scenarios and just plain bad dialog all around. Not to mention the editing was just horrendous. At times I actually had to guess what they were trying to say. It seemed very little effort was put into this book, like it was just churned out overnight as an afterthought. It was a letdown right from the beginning.

Spoiler Alert!
The book starts out with Remy describing the operations they have been performing on her with no anesthesia. She relates how she fears she will not be able to survive many more of these surgeries as they are strapping her down for yet another one. First, this concept seems totally ridiculous to me. You have a world full of zombies and you are going to continually risk killing someone who is immune in the process of trying to find out why? Especially since she and her brother (who already escaped) are the only 2 known to be immune. Seems to me, they would have tried to keep her as healthy as possible in their search for a cure instead of treating her with such disregard.

Then, right as they make their first incision, sirens go off, indicating zombies have breached the compound. So what do the doctors do? They all run out leaving her strapped to the bed. Once again, are going to leave your only source to a possible cure strapped to a bed for the zombies to eat?

After having worked my way through the rather poorly-written Trylle Trilogy (Twilight with trolls), I found that I would give Amanda Hocking another chance through the form of Hollowland. Let me first just say that I thoroughly enjoyed Hollowland: I found the characters were enjoyable, the romance was believable, Remy was a strong lead and the situations arguably realistic. I especially enjoyed the explanations of the zombies and the darkness it did not sidestep. I found that Hocking could write if she did not appeal to the Twilight demographic and attempted something for an older, more experienced audience.

I downloaded Hollowmen about a week ago and am a good chunk of the way through, but I find that I just can't bring myself to finish it. The editing is terrible. Not just unsightly, but there are times when you must stop reading and cringe. "Crazy fast" is used to describe the movement of a zombie (honestly), and the fates of characters that we came to love in Hollowland are handled with about as much care as a mugging. Remember Blue, the doctor? Well, his fate is summed up like this: "Blue was definitely a zombie, and a young one too, which meant he'd be hella fast and hella strong". There are parts handled and written so clumsily that make you wonder if Hocking knows she's writing a book, not some sort of feverish diary. The romance I could see oncoming was silly and cliché, nowhere near to matching that of the first book. Remy's new companions are boring and "exported characters" that completely fail to get you interested as Hollowland did. Even Remy herself begins to become a Wendy Everly at times. The once-promising series seems to be going the way of the awful Trylle Trilogy, which is very sad. All in all, it's very easy to see why Hocking is self-published.
