Hollowland - the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows...
"This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door."
Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.
I really loved this book. I am really into zombies. They have always been faves of mine. I don't know why, but I love them :)
So, this book was good for me.
The author Amanda Hocking wrote this book well, it was easy to follow, and you characters you could connect with well.
The book started off with Remy in a government quarantine, that was once a High School. Remy lived in a room with 25 other people. Zombies were the reason for this.
as the book said:
Zombies weren't really "zombies" at least not the kind that rose from the dead and only wanted to eat brains. They were regular people who had been infected with the lyssavirus genotype 8. A mutation of the rabies virus, it only infected humans, and it turned them into something completely monstrous.
Remy leaves the compound, after a zombie attack. She leaves with Harlow, a 13 year old girl, who has allot of questions, and Sommer, who was bitten mearly moments after leaving the compound. Not knowing if she was infected or not, Remy had to leave her out in the desert. To die. Alone.
They are on a quest to find Remy's brother Max, who is 8. The government has taken him off somewhere, and she wants to find him. He's not sick. He's something much better.
Throughout the book they pick up along the way a Lion. Who Remy names Ripley.
They meet 2 other people Lazlo, and Blue in an abandoned house. And they join them along the way to another compound. They fight some zombies, meet some crazy people. kill some people. They are in the mitts of a zombie fight. and Remy was bitten.
They found a guy who said they can help them, they have to stay in a cell for 3 days to make sure that they are not infested with the virus before they can cross over into the compound. No one ever changes into a zombie. So they cross, they have a "home" they meet people. Then Remy find out her brother is inside the medical ward of the hospital. She has a plan with someone she met. and one of the people she was on a journey with. Then she sees Max. Hes being used as a "medical lab rat". Remy doest like this so she has a plan conjured up and breaks him out. But, only she stays behind. Because the same reason that her brother was kept in there, is a reason for her to stay also. To help the human race not go extinct.
The book was amazing to me. I enjoyed every page. And i cannot wait for book 2 to come out. Which I hope is soon.
This book was full of action. A little romance, and a heart breaking ending that keeps you wanting more..
