This is one of my favorite books by Brandy. I have to say her books keep getting better and better.
Jo is a typical teenager faced with very untypical circumstances. A year ago she witnessed the death of her boyfriend Bryce and the circumstances were less than ordinary. Something attacked them at the overlook and pushed Bryce over the stone wall and into the hollow. Problem is, nobody believes her. In fact, everyone in the little town seems to think that she killed her boyfriend. So Jo turned from the leader of the cheering squad and popular girl into the school pariah. Only Jo isn't as crazy as everyone thinks, and monsters do exist. And this one isn't done with her yet…
I loved Jo. She has a very distinct voice and is a very interesting and believable character. How do you deal with a tragedy like that when you are barely 18 and struggling with your life as it is? She has PTSD and survivor guilt, and recurring nightmares of the thing that attacked her and Bryce that fateful night. So much so that she's almost persuaded herself that she is slowly going crazy.
And it doesn't help that the police thinks she's guilty, and that everyone in school think the same. Even her parents bailed and left town, abandoning her with her older brother. Her brother tries to help, but the big problem is that he doesn’t believe her when she says there's a monster haunting her dreams and think that it's all due to depression.
How do you cope with that and not break? How do you keep on living when everyone around you would rather wish you slunk away and quietly died somewhere out of sight? Even adults would crack under that pressure. So I really admire Jo for hanging on in there and for finding the courage to do what's right when the truth comes to light.Read more ›
RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M.Brennan.
This was a 3.5 scream (star) review.
I devoured this book in one day, the dishes went undone and I nearly missed a meeting. All because I wanted to keep reading, I wanted to uncover the mystery that laid Deep in the Hollow. And why the main character, Jo, was so closed off.
Brandy Nacole has a knack for pacing and intrigue; she writes in a manner that pulls you forward into the story and before you know it it is 1:00AM and your eyes are bloodshot.
I do have to say, that based on the ARC copy provided for this review, I was disappointed with the number of things that were overlooked in editing, but at the same time reading a book in the Paranormal Fantasy genre was a breath of fresh air.
I would venture to say Deep in the Hollow is a suitable read for Young Adults, more of the story revolves around, well, the story. The romances that built up were not the main focus and took place in the background, and I was left screaming (in my head) "Oh just kiss already!" I was relieved that the author stayed on course with the story and didn't detour on the plot-line she had been building.
Deep in the Hollow is written in first person, present tense; typically this style doesn't fit my fancy. Yes, I just said that, but I enjoyed this writing style.
I haven't had the chance to read any of Brandy Nacole's previous works, so I am unsure if Jo's mannerisms reflect those of the writer's voice. In either case it worked well. Jo's southern (for lack of remembering the word I intended to use) way of talking and phrases definitely brought forth a lot of character.
I hope that there is more to come and that this is just the beginning of a series.
