    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.There are horrifying things that humankind has seen occur throughout history From a single heinous and passionate crime to mass killings making us wonder if we ll ever be able to prevent these horrors from taking place, evil takes on new forms that simply astonish the most seasoned veterans in the field of crime investigation But what if the cause of such terrors is beyond Man s reach What if there are supernatural forces at play that provoke You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.There are horrifying things that humankind has seen occur throughout history From a single heinous and passionate crime to mass killings making us wonder if we ll ever be able to prevent these horrors from taking place, evil takes on new forms that simply astonish the most seasoned veterans in the field of crime investigation But what if the cause of such terrors is beyond Man s reach What if there are supernatural forces at play that provoke these incidences against our own will Authors of the New York Times bestselling The Strain trilogy also an FX TV series that aired from 2014 to 2017 Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan return to write a brand new novel where a mysterious entity might be at the heart of gruesome crimes throughout history and one man older than time itself might be humanity s only hope to stopping it from takinginnocent lives.What is The Hollow Ones about Rookie FBI agent Odessa Hardwicke and her partner Walt Leppo chase after a rampaging murderer heading towards his final targets after having taken multiple lives already On the scene, the young and new recruit is forced to turn her gun on her partner who acts suspiciously as he attempts to apprehend the murderer During the tragedy, she noticed a shadowy presence exiting her partner s body that she is unable to rationalize and explain to her comrades, ultimately forcing her to be placed on desk leave It is upon meeting agent Earl Solomon, the very first Afro American FBI agent, as well as the mysterious John Silence that she is led down an eerie and occult trail to hunt down an unspeakable evil Based on author Algernon Blackwood s character of the same name John Silence, the duo brings us an occult detective tale that is relatively refreshing and fast paced The story unfolds through multiple timelines with one of them focusing on Odessa Hardwicke s modern day predicament as a rookie under investigation who is trying to understand the mysterious sighting she witnessed during the apprehension of the rampaging murderer A second narrative focuses on the earlier days of agent Earl Solomon as he investigates the lynching of a white man and meets the strange yet quintessential John Silence who might be the key to solving his case The third point of view is a sparse insight into the mysterious Hollow One that allow the reader to discover its origin, essence, and purpose.As much as I d like to admit that it was a breeze to go through this, it remains flawed in its simplicity Not a single character in this story was developed and given any depth as they embark on this journey to discover the obscure creature, a creature that essentially remains the main mystery of this story While some interactions with John Silence were entertaining, the other characters had no charisma to allow the reader to form any attachment with them The pacing of the story also failed to establish any true momentum, often losing itself in dull interactions or boring detours While its shorter length somewhat worked in its favour, further developing the mystical elements could ve helped in establishing the desired horror tone that was unfortunately nonexistent in the end The Hollow Ones is a gripping yet poorly developed occult detective tale featuring the mysterious John Silence.Thank you to Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me a copy for review Yours truly,Lashaan Blogger and Book ReviewerOfficial blog

    Oh boy one of those reviews I don t really want to do.I ll start by saying that it s a fast, entertaining read I finished it extremely quickly.But It was not epic Having read and loved the authors before, I expected epic I expected a book that would thrust me into a world so dark and compelling that I couldn t come up for air What I got was Denzel Washington flashbacks.Don t get me wrong, I love Denzel But this was Fallen starring Denzel Washington mashed up with a little Exorcist prequel Oh boy one of those reviews I don t really want to do.I ll start by saying that it s a fast, entertaining read I finished it extremely quickly.But It was not epic Having read and loved the authors before, I expected epic I expected a book that would thrust me into a world so dark and compelling that I couldn t come up for air What I got was Denzel Washington flashbacks.Don t get me wrong, I love Denzel But this was Fallen starring Denzel Washington mashed up with a little Exorcist prequel It wasn t original.Most of the characters fell flat The only one I felt like we really got to know was an FBI agent who was one of the first African American agents I loved him I felt like I knew him This is the first in a series There s certainly room for the series to grow into somethingfully realized and I did enjoy the first book enough that I would happily read the second.It just wasn t quite what I d hoped for

    Was super excited to receive an ARC but was so disappointed by the time I finished it The character John Silence is a total ripoff of Pendergast from the Pendergast Series by Preston Child looks, clothing, demeanor Silence even drives the same car and lives in the same building as Pendergast Total RIPOFF Two authors of this caliber could surely have created an original character The only character I liked was Solomon the 82yo cantankerous ex FBI agent I just feel like there could have bee Was super excited to receive an ARC but was so disappointed by the time I finished it The character John Silence is a total ripoff of Pendergast from the Pendergast Series by Preston Child looks, clothing, demeanor Silence even drives the same car and lives in the same building as Pendergast Total RIPOFF Two authors of this caliber could surely have created an original character The only character I liked was Solomon the 82yo cantankerous ex FBI agent I just feel like there could have been MORE

    I m giving up on this one halfway through The beginning wasor less interesting, but I mostly wanted to continue because this is the second book I ve come across that is releasing this year and inspired by Algernon Blackwood I thought it would be an interesting comparison However, the pacing was odd and just got worse once John Silence finally showed up And then we got to talking about other religions and it s just not very culturally sensitive.

    I am a fucking sucker for Guillermo and Chuck I keep reading the books and watching the movies and then being like WHY DID I DO THAT This book was no exception 1 I very much dislike POV s from the evil entity s eyes I feel this makes them LESS scary In this case, too, we see glimpses and thenvirtually no follow up No idea WHY after being led to believe we should be included in it 2 A lot of weird relationship build up and not a lot of point to it I enjoyed the overall story as kin I am a fucking sucker for Guillermo and Chuck I keep reading the books and watching the movies and then being like WHY DID I DO THAT This book was no exception 1 I very much dislike POV s from the evil entity s eyes I feel this makes them LESS scary In this case, too, we see glimpses and thenvirtually no follow up No idea WHY after being led to believe we should be included in it 2 A lot of weird relationship build up and not a lot of point to it I enjoyed the overall story as kind of easy entertainment NOTE In these complicated times where we are FINALLY MAYBE being forced to admit, value, and work through the traumatic events and racism that have and continue to occur in America a good thing, keep doing the work , this book feltnot good There s continuous mention of black and race in the South, it goes into details regarding lynching, and the evil woman doing the summoning is Carribean, the two final bodies that are possessed are black and saved by a crusty old British white dude who only cares about his wife, and the angry souls of slaves are used as a force of evil and antagonism I m just saying it isn t cool and it feels like an example of how we perpetuate racism without I am giving the writers benefit of the doubt meaning to
