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 book was one of my favorites while I was younger. I gave my preferred chapters a listen and found that the narrator really lacks emotion and originality. Her voice is dry and boarding on monotone in some places. It was a real disappointment. That and the characters as she portrayed them were flat, aloof, and uninteresting. I'll just continue to read my copy of Hollow Kingdom on my own time. Honestly, I'm glad that I didn't pay money for this.
Katherine Kellgren. She did a fantastic job on the Bloody Jack series.
First the narrator was perfect in her diction, her inflections, she really, really made me feel as if I were actually in the story. And as for the author, she definitely has not only a way with words but her humorous side definitely shows through her characters. I can't say that there was anything about this book that I did not like.

LOVED IT BUNCHESSSSSSSSSSSS
I don't have too much time to read because of work and college. My solution is audiobooks and plenty of them! Looking forward to fantasy!
Fantasy come true.
Basically everything down from the plot, characters, and reader.
I have listened to plenty of Sterlin's performances, but seeing as this is where my love of her narration started way back in 2004, I'd have to lean towards this one being the best!
This book has shaped a lot of what I wanted to do with my life. Finding it here on audible.com made my day, week, and year.
This is a great, whimsical listen. It is a blend of what goes behind the fairy tale into something darker and a bit more thrilling. The Hollow Kingdom is worth a listen.
Life changes when you have to go underground.
I loved this book. I can't wait for the next volume. It is well written, the characters are well developed. The dialogue is great. There are funny moments and awful moments. It is a perfect YA book.
