Description

'This story will steal up your spine, slip beneath your skin, and stick to you like honey.' -- Samantha Shannon

The Hollow sisters - Vivi, Grey and Iris - are as seductively glamorous as they are mysterious. They have black eyes and hair as white as milk. The Hollow sisters don't have friends - they don't need them. They move through the corridors like sharks, the other little fish parting around them, whispering behind their backs.

And everyone knows who the Hollow sisters are. Because one day the three Hollow sisters simply disappeared. And when they came back, one month later, with no memory of where they had been, it was as if nothing had changed. Almost nothing, Apart from, for example, the little scar that had appeared in the hollow of their throats ... and a whispering sense that something is not quite right about them, despite (or maybe because of) the terrible passion to be with them that they can exert on anybody at will...

A thrilling, twisting, novel that is as seductive and glamorous as the Hollow sisters themselves....

Review quote

Stepping nimbly among the liminal spaces and eerie real-world haunts of our heroine's cipher-sister, this haunting modern fairy tale will wrap you up like a glittering fog, before going for your throat. -- Melissa Albert This dark, deliciously twisted novel has everything you could hope for as a reader - a brilliant concept, glamorous characters with secrets to hide, immersive world building, and some of the finest writing I've seen in YA fiction. I'll put it like this - I am obsessed with the House of Hollow. -- Louise O'Neill Dark and delicious, HOUSE OF HOLLOW hums with malice and mystery. I devoured it whole. -- Kiran Millwood Hargrave In House of Hollow, Krystal Sutherland turns her razor-sharp imagination to new horizons and proves, once again, that words blossom at her command. This story will steal up your spine, slip beneath your skin, and stick to you like honey. -- Samantha Shannon Utterly gripping, deliciously strange and haunting -- Katherine Rundell Alive with lush language and a dark fairy tale feel, this is a compelling readalike for lovers of Holly Black's many wonderful fair folk standalones and series. -- Abby Bussen * School Library Journal * Iris' smart and assured narration easily carries a fast-paced story entwining themes of grief and loss with elements of folklore and some very inventive body horror. The pervasive feeling of dread builds to a shocking twist. A lush and darkly twisted modern fairy tale. * Kirkus * House of Hollow is an eerily beautiful dark fable of sisterhood and horror stories that won't stay put on their pages. -- Anna James Lush, sinister, beautiful and laced with corruption - the ultimate twisted fairytale -- Imogen Russell Williams A gorgeous, grisly modern fairytale for 14-plus. * Guardian * A genre-twisting mystery with a supernatural edge. * The Bookseller * I gobbled this eerie and gorgeous book whole. It has proper Shirley Jackson vibes. Totally spellbinding. * Holly Bourne * I was so excited to recieved my copy of House of Hollow and delighted that it meet every one of my expectations!
It is a dark twisted fairy tale with two mysteries. Where is the eldest sister, Grey? What happened to the three sisters when they went missing as children?

Early on I had some theories and was delighted to find out that I was partially right, only it is much darker than I thought. Without giving any spoilers, I can say that this is the best representation of my favourite concept from local folklore (well I said no spoilers, so it has to be vague).

I loved Grey's style but very quickly concluded that she is an awful person. It was a bit frustrating that Iris couldn't see it. I was on the fence about their Mother too but to be fair, she wasn't so bad that you couldn't understand how she acted, considering the sad history. I adore Iris and Vivi! They feel like sisters with an unhealthy but loving relationship and also complete characters with their own goals.
I'd love to read more within this universe, but I feel like the main part of these character's stories are done. I hope that if there is a sequel, it's from a different character's perspective. -- Sally @bybookandbone * Instagram *
