The Hollow - Book two of the Sign of Seven Trilogy
Jove Books 2008
I've finally read the second book. The first one had me up until the wee hours finishing, and this was no different. If you'd like to read the first review before, I wrote it December 10, here's the link.
Three boys made up their own ritual for their 10th birthday and became blood brothers over the pagan stone. Not only was their lives changed, but so was that of the town Hawkins Hallow. Since then every seven years, for seven days, on the seventh month, the town turns into a nightmare.
In the first book, three women who are connected to the three Friends found their way to Hawkins Hollow, now it's up to all six of them to stop whatever the madness is.
Fox and Layla have the same gift. They can feel things, other's thoughts, etc. In The Hollow they, along with the help of the others, work toward finding the answers. Layla resists her gifts, afraid of what she might find inside herself. She's a descendant of the demon, her worry is that she'll be the cause of every one's death.
Fox guides Layla to understand her gift and how to use it. Together they'll find a way to stop the nightmare. Now of course I have to wait for the next and final installment, The Pagan Stone.
I give this a 5 Now how fast can December get here?
