Cheri Reviews The Hollow Ones by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

The Hollow Ones by Guillermo del Toro

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I haven’t read anything by Guillermo del Toro before but I’ve seen his films. When I saw an offering on NetGalley (yay for the addition of audiobooks!) I immediately requested it. I still haven’t looked Chuck Hogan up yet but will soon…

I really didn’t know what to expect from this book but I had a very hard time putting it down once I got into it. The first few chapters were tough because we move between different time periods and characters but it all comes together fairly quickly and then the action picks up.

I’m not going to lie, the main protagonist, Odessa Hardwicke, did get on my nerves occasionally but redeemed herself fairly quickly. And I ended up becoming a big fan of Hugo Blackwood.

I will eagerly pick up the sequel so I can join in on the continuing adventures!

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing the audiobook.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention that the narrator does a great job of bringing the characters to life.
