About the 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.

A disappointing sequel. Not because almost none of the characters from Book 1 are in it -- killing off and separating people is par for the course in any zombie apocalypse novel worth its salt, even when we miss some of those people! -- but because the writing is nowhere near as good. The ever-expanding landscape and various zombie attacks are fine, I guess, but the characters aren't as interesting, even Remy herself is less of a bad-ass and more of a moron, and far too many narratively lazy things happen. Too bad.

*spoiler alert*

Amanda Hocking, as always, did a great job on this book. However, I felt that Remy making it through six months of of experimenting, then escaping the way she did and stitching herself up was stretching reality a bit. Although, I wouldn't call that impossible, it definitely seems like a stretch, but an interesting one for sure. I loved how Hocking showed throughly Remy's travels that it's more than zombies that had to be watched out for.

Although I loved Lazlo in book 1, I ghink Boden made a good love interest in this book. However, the book ended kind of slow and with too many loose strings, so I'm definitely hoping that there's a third book coming soon. There were also a few grammatical errors that the inner Grammar Nazi in me noticed, lol, but overall it was good.

I found it as action packed as the first - if not more so. I love that Amanda isn't affraid to cull characters and you never know whats around the corner. I like the evolution of the zombies - the way they screetch to the others and never die. When it ended I was eager to read more and dissapointed to be finished. This book would make a great movie. Fun , scary, suspence filled.
Bring back Lazlo!

Really enjoyed this dystoian sequel. A number of people complained how the love interest in the first book didn't end up how they thought they should in the second book. But these people are forgetting...it's the end of the world with zombies overtaking it, so things don't always turn out fair. That's how the story goes and, luckily for my interests in good storytelling, the author didn't give in to what she thought would sell her audience, but what she thought was important to the story. So thank you Ms Hocking for staying true to the story, and not pandering to the audience!

Although, I do have to agree that it was pushing reality a bit that the lass could stitch herself back together after being left to die strapped down on the operating table. However, I am good at skipping reality a bit if it helps the story along, so don't get too caught up in whether any of us could do it. Just think about those women who gained superhuman strength to lift cars off their children when in accidents, and think that anything's possible!

I agree with the other reviewers, the first book was really good and this was a bit of a letdown at the beginning and end. It did seem pretty unrealistic how she had survived 6 months of surgeries and in the middle of having her stomach slit open she manages to flip the table, stitch herself up and escape. But after that it was really good, I always enjoy the events that happen on the way that show it's not just the zombies they have to watch out for! By the end, it's nice to see Remy learning to embrace her life and enjoy the good things, though I wish there had been a bit more with Laslo, like why did he leave her in quarantine? And what happened to him at the end? I did like how this book ended but it did feel a little incomplete, but maybe that's just because the books started with a bang and kept running and at the end they were suddenly at a crawl. I definitely enjoyed these books, they are probably my favourite Amanda Hocking books yet.
