The Hollow

When Abbey’s best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead…and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey has never felt so desperately alone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen’s funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey’s life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he’s the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen’s betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.
My Thoughts:

The Haunted (The Hollow, Book 2)I'm a little late reading this one, but I could kick my self for not making this one more of a priority! It's been a while since I've gotten my hands on a juicy YA paranormal that has a heavy coating of romance and mystery. I mean, I figured Caspian was a ghost or something, I just had to figure out how he tied into the Sleepy Hallow legend. The beginning was a little slow for me, but once she starts meeting up with Caspian, the book flies. I literally sat down with this 500 page novel and finished it in a two days. Yeah, it was pretty good. The only thing is, the ending leaves you hanging. BUT good news for me, The Haunted (The Hallow Book 2), comes out AUG 30TH!! So Yaya, for me! I guess, that's one plus for waiting so long to read this one. I just hope some loose ends get tied up in book two.  Pick this one up!!

Hallowed is a splendid continuation of the Unearthly series. Clara and her family continue on this magical and powerful journey that still leaves the future unclear. Overall Hallowed is an emotionally charged book that will wrap up loose end from Clara's failed purpose, and open the door to what the future holds for this young girl.
