Read The Hollow Girl Online Free - Five boys attacked her.
Now they must repay her with their blood and flesh.
Bethan is the apprentice to a green healer named Drina in a clan of Welsh Romanies. Her life is happy and ordered and modest, as required by Roma custom, except for one thing: Silas, the son of the chieftain, has been secretly harassing her.
One night, Silas and his friends brutally assault Bethan and a half-Roma friend, Martyn. As empty and hopeless as she feels from the attack, she asks Drina to bring Martyn back from death’s door. “There is always a price for this kind of magic,” Drina warns. The way to save him is gruesome. Bethan must collect grisly pieces to fuel the spell: an ear, some hair, an eye, a nose, and fingers.
She gives the boys who assaulted her a chance to come forward and apologize. And when they don’t, she knows exactly where to collect her ingredients to save Martyn.

Perfection! Definitely, one of my favorites this year! I am all about revenge stories. Creepshow 2 (the short with the wooden Native American statue), Last House on the Left (the original, not that piece of crap remake), and I Spit on Your Grave! This book is more than just about revenge, it's ab...

Breaths, as a rule, are warm, airy things, but his death rattle was frigid and thick, like icy porridge slithering down my throat. It tasted like raw meat and pennies.
This is one of those reviews where I feel like I should clarify that three stars is a positive rating. The Hollow Girl tells th...

This is such a powerful book. It really packs an emotional wallop. I cried off and on through the entire thing. And then I didn't want to read anything else for a week after.
Full review to come.

Where do I even start?
This book is set at an indeterminate time... maybe in the late 1800's? Our lead gal is being raised by her gypsy caravan's 'witch'. The lady that everyone goes to for healing, charms, etc. At first we are not sure that any magic is real; that quickly changes. I'...

The Hollow Girl was the perfect horror novel to put me in the spooky mood. This revenge story was equal parts dark, suspenseful, gritty and emotional.
Rape is a large element of this book, so there are definitely trigger warnings for that in this story, which the author does point out. I thought...

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.
THE HOLLOW GIRL was written by a Romani to honor her grandmother and their shared Romani heritage. I was drawn in by that fact, excited to learn more about the Romani culture from the point-of-view of a young woman learning magic from her grandmother. H...

В преддверии Хэллоуина захотелось пощекотать себе нервишки ужастиком. Роман выбирала... практически наобум - за что зацепилась во френд-ленте на GR, то и взяла.
Ну и свою функцию история почти выполнила))
Суть проста - месть.
Героиню-цыганку изнасиловали пятеро ублюдков, ее возлюбленного убили. П...
