Description

"To stop a demon, sometimes you must act like a demon."

The South Grove Set.

Four boys. Profane, rebellious, full of heart. Their gang offers everything their troubled homes do not.

The apocalypse hits. The threads of society fray, burn... Abandoned and alone, the boys make an uneasy pact with an anguished bully to reach safety. Their darkening journey brings confrontations with sadistic neo-Nazi trophy hunters, wild landscapes, psyche-straining isolation, and demons, of the apocalypse and their own.

Hollow Shotguns will blow your mind. With a close-range headshot.

Khalid Patel's debut novel explores themes both daunting and everyday, from violence and wartime ethics to growing pains and the fragility of friendship. High-octane action is set against raw emotion, offbeat laughs against harrowing jolts. The eye-popping, poetically experimental prose can shriek and shudder before melting into aching tenderness. The slang-drenched dialogue builds a strange yet familiar world.

Hollow Shotguns is apocalypse fiction of subversive full-bore intensity.

The unsanitized violence. The searing social commentary. The prickling humour.

This is not a fucking beach read.
