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.
More please.

FIVE MASSIVE, MASSIVE STARS!

...I was wrong. I thought this would be a Twilight version but with Zombies. I assumed it would be poorly written with little to no inventiveness. I thought there wouldn't be any wit. Any drama. Any good.

Bugger.

I enjoyed this story to the point of nearly crying when I read the last word. Not because of the ending and the pain, suffering, love, hate, life and energy this book contains. But because I didn't want it to end. I WANT TO KNOW MORE!! What happened next? Where does Remy, the heroine, go? What about her borther, Max? Does Ripley keep eating zombies like we pop m&ms? What about Blue, Lazlo...? URGH!!!

So, in short... this is an unexpected gem of a story. It is written by a younger person, there are some mistakes and typos so us anal-freaks will have to ignore them - they are far and few. But the story more then makes up for those small niggles. And trust me, I'm nit-picking.

I've read nothing else by this author so approached the work with no preconceptions.

On the whole I would say that I enjoyed the book. I found the storyline engaging and entertaining. A little absurd at times and sort of cookie cutter (but it's a zombie novel, it's not like people reading it are really striving for realism, and there are only so many directions a zombie book can go in before you'd pretty much covered them all). I think most of the characters were portrayed well, but some could've done with a little extra padding or fleshing. Some aspects were cliched and many were clearly unresearched (I mostly refer here to the completely tame, kitten-like behaviour of a grown lioness).

What let this book down for me was the badly edited, rushed feel to it. Grammar itself isn't terrible, but syntax is pretty appalling in places. Missing words, misplaced or misused words ( two examples that come to mind are 'except' being used where 'accept' was required, and 'faired' being used in place of 'fared'). Many more besides these. The text is littered with them, and though it wasn't to the extent that it stopped me from reading, it was irritating and detracted somewhat for me from the general enjoyment.

If you don't care about editing issues then this is a great book for you. It flows, has an engaging storyline with motivated and occasionally endearing characters, and basically passes the time.
But if something being badly written is a bugbear for you (as it is me) then I'm not sure you'd enjoy this.

This could have been good, but was left lacking with the shallow characters and predictable subplots. Character depth would have made a big difference, and made me care a lot more about whether or not the group survived. I read a lot of zombie books, and this wasn't the worst, but it was a long way from the best. I didn't hate it, but wouldn't read the next instalment unless it was free! Shame, because there is a lack of post apocalyptic novels with a female lead...

This zombie series isn't as good as Hockings Switched: Trylle Trilogy Book 1 (Trylle Trilogy 1) series, which is superb. Although her books are clearly YA, this one seems a little rushed, and the attention to fluidity and details isn't as prevalent as in her other books.
The characters seem to be eaten or bitten quicker than they can develop some depth.
The best part of the story has to be Ripley, who is hands down the most interesting pet in an post apocalyptic world I have had the pleasure to read about.
I think Hocking is a very creative and talented writer, however this book just wasn't her best work, then again maybe it was just the fact I hate really can't stand flesh eating zombies.

Another great read by Amanda Hocking. I really enjoy her style of writing and would now buy any book with her name on! This is a fab book ~ the beginning seems a bit same old same old with a mutant virus turning everyone in to zombies. I correctly guessed the reason behind Remy's brother's evacuation as soon as it was discovered. Despite this, the characters and story line captured me and I really enjoyed this book. It only cost 69p on the Kindle !!! I look forward to the sequel being published in October (Hollowmen).
