Harvesting souls...

I loved this book!! PRN hottie, Midnight Gunn, was born during a solar eclipse and Hayley’s comet passing and has been gifted with both healing powers & being able to see inside minds. He has helped Arthur Gredge, of Scotland Yard in several cases and has been summoned again. This new case appears to be of the paranormal nature. Gunn rescues an orphan girl who had been attacked and heals her and becomes her legal guardian. As Gunn and Gredge race against the clock to catch a deranged killer, who is harvesting souls, will they do so before one of them is harmed? This is a fast paced PRN story w lots of excitement and intrigue...there is an HEA but is it truly over??
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

In the Midnight hour, we want more, more, MORE!

I loved the book version of The Hollows, so I was intrigued as to how the novel would come across as an audiobook. I was not disappointed. This audio version is outstanding!

Helen Taylor's narration and attention to accents brings each character gloriously to life and enhances C.L. Monaghan's masterfully crafted tale beautifully. The variation and inflection of the voices of each character, in particular the growly rasp of the villain of the piece Spring-Heeled Jack made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end, immersing me into the story completely.

The Hollows is a tale of murder, mystery and magic set in London in 1860. Our hero, Midnight Gunn is a very special gent who was born during a solar eclipse as Halley's Comet blazed a trail across the sky, endowing him with supernatural powers that are both a blessing and a curse

Midnight uses his gifts to assist Detective Inspector Arthur Gredge in solving strange and unusual cases. Gredge is the only one aware of the extent of Midnights abilities, earning him the title of "Scotland Yards best kept secret".

The story finds Midnight and Gredge on the hunt for the notorious "Spring Heeled Jack", following the discovery of the body of a well-to-do young lady in a seedy part of the city As they follow the clues left behind and the number of victims rises, will they be able to uncover the true identity of this monster who is terrorising the streets of London and stop his killing spree for good?

The Hollows is an action packed tale of traditional gothic mystery, entwined with paranormal adventure. The characters are masterfully created and well researched, leaving us, the listener, wanting to know more about their back stories and taking us on a rollercoaster ride throughout - I was cheering for our heroes, but I also found myself wanting to to know more about the person behind Spring Heeled Jack…. In spite of their disturbing actions and behaviour, I wanted to understand their motives too.

So there you have it in a nutshell. The Hollows is recommended for age 16+, mainly because there is mild bad language, adult themes and necromancy. The Hollows is just the beginning of what promises to be a cracker of a series and I avidly look forward to Midnight Gunn's next adventure, and hopefully more of Helen Taylor's story-weaving narrative skills too.

The hollows is an awe inspiring experience you feel like you are propelled back to 1860s london. The book is beautifully narrated by Helen Taylor her dramatisation of the characters is fantastic my favourite being little polly. I enjoyed reading the paperback but this audiobook takes it to another level I would recommend this book to anyone a thrilling read that you cannot put down. The book is also beautifully written by the author and cannot wait for the next instalment.
