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.

Amazon link –

The Hollow sisters – Vivi, Grey and Iris – are as seductively glamorous as they are mysterious. They have black eyes and hair as white as milk. The Hollow sisters don’t have friends – they don’t need them. They move through the corridors like sharks, the other little fish parting around them, whispering behind their backs. And everyone knows who the Hollow sisters are. Because one day the three Hollow sisters simply disappeared. And when they came back, one month later, with no memory of where they had been, it was as if nothing had changed. Almost nothing, Apart from, for example, the little scar that had appeared in the hollow of their throats … and a whispering sense that something is not quite right about them, despite (or maybe because of) the terrible passion to be with them that they can exert on anybody at will… A thrilling, twisting, novel that is as seductive and glamorous as the Hollow sisters themselves….
