Publisher's Summary

For Fox, Caleb, Gage and the other residents of Hawkins Hollow, the number seven portends doom - ever since, as boys, they freed a demon trapped for centuries when their blood spilled upon The Pagan Stone.

Their innocent bonding ritual led to seven days of madness, every seven years. And now, as the dreaded seventh month looms before them, the men can feel the storm brewing. Already they are plagued by visions of death and destruction. But this year, they are better prepared, joined in their battle by three women who have come to The Hollow. Layla, Quinn, and Cybil are somehow connected to the demon, just as the men are connected to the force that trapped it.

Since that day at The Pagan Stone, town lawyer Fox has been able to see into others' minds, a talent he shares with Layla. He must earn her trust, because their link will help fight the darkness that threatens to engulf the town. But Layla is having trouble coming to terms with her newfound ability - and this intimate connection to Fox. She knows that once she opens her mind, she'll have no defenses against the desire that threatens to consume them both.

The "performance" is distracting

I LOVE The Hollow series. I thought the reader for book one made Layla sound a little goofy but THIS reader makes them all sound like morons and the character voices are all quite juvenile. Quinn sounds like a character from an 80's cartoon like Jem and the Holograms. She can't make a man sound like a man and it's hard to tell who's supposed to be talking a lot of the time. It's really difficult to listen to. I keep fast forwarding during general conversation because this lady's reading style is quite grating. The intimate scenes are a complete joke as she talks like a teenage girl reading a stolen dirty magazine at a slumber party. I really hope there's a different "performer" for the 3rd book.

Nora Roberts winner

As usual Nora Roberts writes a great story full of rich characters, friendship, and family. We met these characters in book one, but this time we get to know them better because it is their story. We also get to hear from other characters from book one, the town people we met before and the characters that will star in book three. This narrator is better than book one, although I woulld prefer all three in a series was done by the same person, it is a good thing in this case that it is a different person.

Love, love, love!

This book continues on, picking up where book 1 left off, but is from Fox & Layla ' s point of view just as book 1 is from Cal & Quinn's point of view. They are getting closer to figuring out how to getting rid of the demon, but also a few months out from The Seven. Highly recommend this book series if you like Nora Roberts or the paranormal. I love a lot of her paranormal trilogies, and this is one of my favorites.

Narrator ruined it!

What disappointed you about The Hollow?

This is the worst narrator ever. The females sound like spoiled cheerleaders. Just for reference if reading about a demon making you see a pitcher of blood instead of beer, she made it sound like a Valley girl who broke a nail, that's when I gave up.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marie Caliendo?

Anyone else

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger in the way it was ruined, I have read the book and enjoyed it. The terrible narration may have ruined it for me forever. When I went to my bookshelves and got it out to read I found I could because I kept hearing that whinny voice in my head.

Any additional comments?

I am returning this one ASAP. I try not to do return many but I want my credit back!

WHY is she only reading this book?

Any additional comments?

Marie Caliendo should have read the entire series. It is so much more enjoyable when all three books in a trilogy are read by the same person, even if the book is from a different characters perspective or focus. Her voices were so much more believable and easy to listen to. I wish Brilliance would consider having the other two reworked. I am one who listens to my books, especially the Nora Roberts trilogies, over and over, but it will be hard for me to do that with these.

Enjoyable-but definitely fiction-better narrator

A lot of the paranormal stuff doesn't really make much sense to me but I still enjoy the charactors & can't wait to see how the series ends. This narrator is much better than the 1st book.
