An absolutely stunning cover that matches the breathtaking story that unfolds within the books pages. I am honestly at a loss for words, about how much I love this entire book. It was not at all what I was expecting, but was everything I wanted and more. House of Hollow is truly a dark and horrifying fairytale that by the end was a masterpiece. I hope this book gets all the praise because it deserves it and so does the author for writing such a terrifying, gut wrenching book.
Years ago, three sisters disappeared one night when walking home with their parents on New Years Eve. They disappeared without a trace and a month later showed back up in the exact same spot they disappeared only they are naked and have a scar at the base of each of their throats.

“Folie à deux, Little Hollow. Or in this case, folie à trois.” Tyler tapped my temple. “Sometimes madness is catching."
Okay, this book got so much darker than I thought it would, but I loved every minute of it. I honestly could not put this book down; I became obsessed with the Hollow sisters and didn’t want to leave this strange and chilling world that Sutherland created. Not only was this super dark, it also focused on sisterhood and what you would do to survive and protect the people you care about. I feel like this story fits into like a dozen genres like fantasy, thriller, magical realism, horror, and mystery. Somehow the author weaves them together perfectly and created a sheer masterpiece. I adored the sisters and how utterly different they are from each other. This book starts off with a bang and you get sucked right in to the lyrical writing and the mysterious story full of twists.
If this book isn’t on your radar, it should be now!
