My review :
This follows three sisters who are glamorized as The Hollow sisters Vivi, Grey and Iris. Ten years ago, on a New Year’s Eve they disappeared and exactly a month after the incident they reappear with no recollection of the times they disappeared. They have a crescent moon shaped scar on their throats and slowly, their hair and eye color changes as well as peculiar habits begins to unfold. Their parents are, however, estatic to find them. But soon enough, one of the them notices the weird changes and hence tries to convince the police they aren’t their kids.
Fast forward a few years, the oldest sister Grey Hollow, now a super famous designer goes missing again, bringing back all the past into their present. Vivi and Iris desparately try to piece together every missing links to find their sister. But something sinister has already got its claws in and this time The Hollow sisters will come face to face with the reality and the truth that was buried long time ago.
Will Iris and Vivi find Grey in time? Who is the man that’s been following them? The dangers awaits them and the truth might just be too horrendous for them to accept.
Sometimes you find books that just devour you, every thought getting catapulting into this unbelievable and exciting future. That’s how House of hollow felt to me. I was impressed with the plot to a level of getting obsessed with the characters. Their actions felt so surreal and especially when they team up to find what actually happened on the night they disappeared and what does their peculiar quality/power represent and why do they still carry this magic within them. With such a pragmatic book cover, you can definitely get a sense of whole plot which is enough to pique your curiosity.
I didn’t see that ending coming. I had a few theories but all of them were wrong and I was literally shocked to see the unexpected twists rapidly consuming the consequences of the character’s decisions. Also it broke my heart because…(It’s a spoiler) but anyways I’m hoping to get it mended in its sequel. These girls were absolutely delightful to read about, the suspense was top notch. I wish and hope to see this book become a tv series.
