I received this book as an e-galley through Edelweiss. I loved The Twisted Ones, and if anything, The Hollow Places is even better. A small, weird museum and a terrifying otherworld? Sign me up. The characters are great, the horror is real, and you'll never look at willow trees the same way again.

This is interdementional horror written by T. Kingfisher. Ergo, I need it now.

The 'Narnia' appeal is alive and well & is being taken over by 'The Wonder Museum'!
Ok, folks I've got a mixed bag with this one literally and figuratively.
One one end I was appreciative of the writing but on the other end I just was not 'won over' by the plot as it was just too 'far fetched' to be believable or partake in.
With this said, "Pray they are hungry" was a 'recurring theme.'
Because it's about spirits as much as it's taxidermy -imagine that!
Yes, with a whole new world just beyond

Electronic ARC provided by Edelweiss.

I loved The Twisted Ones, so I was super excited to see that T. Kingfisher was releasing another creepy horror novel. The Hollow Places is another great book, featuring a couple of highly relatable main characters, a kooky museum that reminded me very much of the Mystery Shack from Gravity Falls, and a truly creepy otherworld with some residents you never want to meet.

Kara (nickname Carrot) is recently divorced, and has moved in with her Uncle in order to

This book is absolutely terrifying in the best way possible! Ive already recommended it to several people. The premise is unique, the imagery is gut-wrenching...I havent slept well for several nights because I cant stop thinking about this book!

I read a free, advance e-book from NetGalley that still included some style and grammatical mistakes that Im sure will be fixed. The only thing I wished had been explained further is how the other worlds worked - why does a person who is supposedly from

T. Kingfisher is the vaguely absurd pen-name of Ursula Vernon. In another life, she writes children's books and weird comics, and has won the Hugo, Sequoyah, and Ursa Major awards, as well as a half-dozen Junior Library Guild selections.

This is the name she uses when writing things for grown-ups.

When she is not writing, she is probably out in the garden, trying to make eye contact with
