Book Reviews

Olive can float in the air, Emma can make fire with her hands, Millard is invisible, Enoch can make the dead come alive and Jacob? Jacob just realized he can see hollowgasts. Hollowgasts are who they are all running from and are as horrible as their names sounds. Who do you trust and where do you turn when all is lost? This band of misfits is about to find out. There is no way to know if using their powers will save them or expose them as they race through 1940s England trying to find a safe haven. So go along with them and find out. Take the plot twists and turns, have your stomach drop, and try not to look away at the creepy old timey photos in this fast paced, action oriented, book. This book made me feel as though I had fallen into a dream where at each turn it looks like a dead end, then somehow a door opens but as soon as you walk through the door you wish you hadn’t.

Hook: Fast Paced, Action Oriented, Creepy, Plot Twists
