“What you don’t understand is that I am the thing in the dark.” - Grey Hollow

The perfect Gothic horror fairytale! Three little girls vanished into thin air, then came back, a month later, with no memory of what happened. But they were just a little bit different. Their blue eyes turned black. Their brown hair turned white. Even their extraordinary, intoxicating beauty couldn’t explain all the odd things that happen around the Hollow sisters.

Grey Hollow’s the biggest supermodel out there, with her picture in the cover of Vogue. Vivi Hollow channels her energy as a punk rocker. And Iris Hollow tries her best to be a normal teenager, getting good enough grades to get into med school. But anytime her sisters come to town, the weirdness that Iris works so hard to ignore seeps back in. But this time, Grey disappears, and Iris keeps seeing a man with the head of a bull. She may finally have to face the mystery of what happened all those years ago.

This book is intoxicatingly gorgeous from the very first page, as you immediately fall under the spell of the Hollow sisters. It’s perfectly paced, leading you down the dark path towards . . . Somewhere you wouldn’t want to visit. But you’ll feel like you can smell the scent of rot and death even after you’ve finished the last page.

This is so well-done! The best horror I’ve read in a long time.

Thank you to Penguin Teen for the advance review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
