What can I say? I waited at the bookstore today for the clerk to put out this book. Bought the book. Came home, opened the book and didn't stop till I finished. That's right...skipped supper...it was totally worth it. Nora's done it again. I loved the first book, "Blood Brothers" and "The Hollow" kept me riveted. Unfortunately, now I have to wait til December 08 for the final book "The Pagan Stone" to be released. Doubtless I'll be waiting at the bookstore for them to open then too.

The second book is the story of Fox. It's also the continuation of the battle to defeat the demon Fox and his two 'blood brothers' accidentally released on their mutual 10th birthday. Since that horrible day, every seven years for seven days, the town of Hawkins Hollow undergoes a demonic transformation into a living hell. All the portents show that THIS time, THIS battle will be the final one. Now three women with a mysterious connection to this ancient evil have arrived in Hawkins Hollow. They have come, consciously and unconsciously, to help defeat the demon.

One of those women is Layla. She's the outsider and isn't really sure how she ended up in Hawkins Hollow...much less involved in this crazy situation. She and Fox are somehow connected, and VERY attracted to each other. But the two of them have several things they need to work out for themselves and for each other before they can truly work together...and Fox and Layla will need to work together in order to help their mutual friends survive to participate in the final battle.

I wish I had more self-control and could keep myself from reading Nora's books until the whole trilogy was published. But I'm weak...and a readaholic. On the plus side, I'll get to re-read the first two before the final book comes out in December!!

Nikki ♥ Oh I can't wait to read it. I'm starting mine tomorrow.

Julie (jjmachshev) I think the thing I like best about Nora's books is the way I can read myself right into the story. When I'm done I have to kind of shake my head and pull myself back to 'this' reality because she just sucks me in...
