Review: Hollowland (The Hollows #1) by Amanda Hocking

Book Blurb

Hollowland - the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows...

"This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door."

Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Remy and other are quarantined in an old high school.  They are not infected with the virus that turns those infected into Zombie-like creatures.  Unfortunately they have attacked the high school.  Remy has to find her brother.  She and two other girls go searching.  The Zombies are everywhere.  Remy makes it to the medical area.  Beck is there but her brother isn’t.  He was evacuated.  She and the girls need to flee.  She realizes Beck has to stay behind.  She never sees him again.
She escapes with another girl and they begin their journey to another facility.  As they travel they add two more people to their group and a lioness.  Remy tries to keep everyone safe and fights several zombies.  They meet new people along the way.  Remy is determined to find her brother Max.  She refuses to stop until she finds him.  She also refuses to get anyone killed over her.  She has to make some tough decisions.
This book was full of actions. I couldn’t put it down.  It introduces Remy as a strong character.  She is a fighter and refuses to give up.  She protects those around her the best she can.  She was my favorite character from the very beginning.
The reader is along for the ride walking side by side with the group as they search for the other quarantine base that her brother may be at.  The storyline is unique as a virus causes the downfall of humanity.  It is fascinating to see what those not infected do to survive and what the government will do to stop the destruction.

This is a great read with great characters.  It keeps you on your toes as the story progresses.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
