The Hollow- A love like no other...




Abbey's life used to be simple...before it all
changed.
Abbey’s best friend has secrets…
Abbey’s falling for a boy who has secrets…
Secrets are about to turn Abbey’s world upside
down.



Rumour has it Kristen killed herself; jumped off the Sleepy Hollow Bridge into the raging river below. It started out in whispers but now is discussed openly amongst congregations of people. Abbey hates it. Abbey is Kristin’s best friend. They all ask her what she knows, but she knows nothing and it has haunted her ever since. What happened to her best friend is as much a mystery to Abbey as the rest of the town of Sleepy Hollow. When Abbey meets Caspian at Kristen’s memorial she finds comfort in her new friend but what this boy hides from her will send her world spinning out of control. Just when Abbey thought she’d survive the heartache of losing Kristen she discovers the double life Kristen lived before she disappeared, which leaves Abbey to question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. Abbey will fall in love, be heartbroken and experience a whole new side to life she never imagined.

The Hollow is the debut novel for Jessica Verday and an excellent read for anyone wishing to reading a bit of romance, mystery and supernatural all rolled into one fantastic read. Jessica is a compelling storyteller with an easy flowing writing style telling a tale which may turn out to be not what one expects. The Hollow revolves around the relationship between Abbey and Caspian that is captivating but not all consuming. Sub-plots include the mystery of Caspian’s identity (Hint: he’s not a vampire or a werewolf) and the mystery surrounding Kristen’s death. By the end of the Hollow only one question is answered and a thousand more are raised. The story continues in the second instalment The Haunted before coming to an epic and dramatic conclusion in The Hidden. This trilogy is a must read for anyone looking for something a little different in the sci-fi/romance genre.
