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.

This is an okay book. What turned me off was the freaking lion. Really? "Hey look, there's a lion! Lets help it and it will become our pet and eat zombies..." Come on. I hate to review so harshly, but if this were a zombie movie it would one of the worst ones. It's typical (other than the lion). "Lets make it to the safe-haven, and oh, someone is immune." I've heard it and seen it all before. I understand why this author chose to self publish, it has good premesis but is severly lacking. I found myself skipping forward and only reading what people were saying. Maybe it's just me, but I like to be captivated in a novel and feel for the people. I didn't get that. I think the author has talent in writing, maybe just not writing about zombies. I might check out some of her other novels.

Bestselling author, Amanda Hocking, took the self-publishing world by storm when she began pulling in millions of dollars from her paranormal young adult ebooks. Her success made ebooks an even more respectable business and a lucrative one. I was excited to have the opportunity to read HOLLOWLAND, the first in an apocalyptic series.

Remy King bursts forth out of a zombie compromised quarantine unit in the very first pages. With a few friends in tow, she must make her way across the zombie wasteland of what's left of the United States in order to find her brother who's been carted off by the government for study. Her adventures through ghost towns and cult compounds are dark, graphic and gory. Besides the interesting addition of a Vegas show lion to aid her in zombie killing, the majority of the action is the repetitive and descriptive slaughter of decomposing, flesh eating monsters.

Remy is amazingly deft at annihilating the walking dead, and her heart is rock hard. She is a strong, centered character, but at times I felt sad at the celebration of her heroic status. Not only was her stamina amazing, but the young girl could walk away from dying friends, kill vigilantes without blinking and push away any feelings of true love. Her only human quality seems to be her devotion for her brother who is immune to the contagious zombie virus.

There is no question that Ms. Hocking is a talented, unique storyteller. The action never stops, but at the same time, neither does the blood and gut letting. At times I actually felt nauseous, but the story, much like a train wreck, has an irresistible draw that lured me back to reading even after I had to put it down.
