This review is from: Hollowland (The Hollows, #1) (Kindle Edition)
Holy Hell! This is a short read but it packs a lot of punch. Not since the Alien films have I come across such a strong and incredible Heroine as Remy. Between her and the aptly named lioness, Ripley, whom Remy kind of picks up along her across state venture to find her brother, there is an abundance of totally brutal feminine power. It is no wonder Ripley has such an affinity for Remy...she recognises another with the heart of a lioness.
This is a fast-paced, action-packed, tense, gory thrill ride in a zombie-filled America. Amazing characters, awesome and well-written action scenes and a sensitive and beautiful grasp on the the many facets of man when forced into desperate survival.
Hollowland blew me away; Remy blew me away; once again Hocking blew me away! I hope this is only the beginning of this world she has created because I can't bare that a now favourite character of mine should be left hanging on such an open ending.
FIVE MASSIVE, MASSIVE STARS!

Loved Hollowland and Hollowmen (The Hollows #2) but I was wondering if you've read any of her other books? Is the writing and storytelling as good as these books or Jami Lynn Saunders Feral: Book 1 in the Werecat Saga or Rabid: Book 2 in the Werecat Saga? If so, I might try some of her other reads. Also looking for other titles like the ones mentioned in my comment, so if you know of any other authors that have great apocalyptic type themes, I'd appreciate it if you'd mention them:)

Hi Rich, I've enjoyed all of Amanda Hocking's stories so far, but Hollowland is definitely my favourite and really does have a different flavour from her other work.
Here's some other books of a similar genre you might like:
Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, Book 1)
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking)
Blood Red Road
Under The Never Sky
I highly recommend Angelfall by Susan Ee and Eden by Keary Taylor :-)
