Publisher's Summary

In 19th-century England, Kate and her sister Emily return to the family estate after their father dies. There, under the guardianship of a distant uncle, they live in a small lodge with two great-aunts. One evening while out late and unable to find their way home, they encounter a nest of goblins. Clare Dunkle unites the human realm and the underworld of the goblin in a fascinating and exciting tale.

This is one of my favorite books, audio ruins it.

This has been one of my favorite books for years! I literally had to stop listening to the audio book because it was destroying the version of it I had in my head! I know that sounds like just my opinion, but the woman reading it sounds so old, and turned it from a fun loving book about a strong teenage girl, into a stiff story about harsh characters. I hated every choice the woman reading it made.

GREAT Fantasy Trilogy

What made the experience of listening to The Hollow Kingdom the most enjoyable?

The Hollow Kingdom is the first in a trilogy that has become my absolute favorite fantasy series. The characters are appealing and the plot is riveting.

What did you like best about this story?

The evolution of Marak and Kate's relationship is one of the best parts of the book.

Which character – as performed by Jenny Sterlin – was your favorite?

Marak is the goblin king. While ostensibly ugly, Marak appeals to the audience through his sense of humor and love for his people.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Magic in the Mist

Any additional comments?

This book keeps you riveted from beginning to end. Be sure to read the rest of the series; it only gets more interesting! Jenny Sterlin does a fantastic job of narrating this book. I sincerely hope that she will narrate the rest of the series!
