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.

    Story
    "Something wicked this way comes"
    If you could sum up The Hollow in three words, what would they be?

    It is coming.


    What other book might you compare The Hollow to and why?

    The other books in the trilogy: Blood Brothers and Pagan Stone.

    With the three women now settling into the Hollow until the Seven, it is Layla more than the others who is at loose ends--until she's bulldozed into stepping into the newly vacant role of office manager for Fox O'Dell's law office. Fox, one of the men who'd unwittingly unleashed the demon back when they were kids. Fox, with whom Layla shares the uncomfortable ability to read minds. Fox, who Layla is more attracted to than she wants to be. And as things with the demon ramp up earlier and harder than ever before, both Fox and Layla have to decide what to do about the passion building between them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Don't think I can pick just one


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

    The Hollow: Eternal Battleground.


    Any additional comments?

    A negative to this trilogy is that each book in it is narrated by a different reader (male, female, male, respectively). Little to no effort was made to keep the "sound" of each character's speech at all consistent from one reader to the next.

    "Solid Nora Roberts, poor narrator choice."

    This is a classic Nora Roberts trilogy. If you liked her other fantasy-themed trilogies, you should enjoy this story. It has a bit more of a horror feel to it than some of the others, but it keeps the romance as well.

    My problem is with the narration. The female voices by this actor are truly awful. Quinn sounds too high and flighty with enough upward tones at the end of each phrase that she sounds as if everything she says is a question. Cal has a vaguely southern accent, which would be fine if that accent was consistent, as all three men were born in the same town and grew up together. Instead, Fox sounds like an adolescent west coast surfer and Gage is deep-voiced and just not believable. The strange voices and inflections make the conversations between the characters feel awkward and stilted and it drove me nuts.

    I usually re-listen to my audio books every few years. For this one, I will stick to a Kindle version.

    "Better than the first of this series"
    If you could sum up The Hollow in three words, what would they be?

    Nice little drama.


    What other book might you compare The Hollow to and why?

    The Hollow compares with other Paranormal trilogies of Nora's. I like them. They're fun reads.


    Have you listened to any of Marie Caliendo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed Marie Caliendo's performance in this book. She brought the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I always enjoy the fight scenes. Anytime the heroes are in danger. Although I know none of them will die, really, it is still thrilling.

    "Great Story"

    This is one of my favorite trilogies by Nora Roberts. The story has a good flow from book to book and I love the characters & the way they relate to each other. The only issue I have is the fact that the narrator changes from book to book..... it's a little distracting for me. If you like your romance with a few thrills and a touch of "other" - then this is a great trio.

    "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.

    "Really liked the 2nd book in this series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Didn't like the fact there was a different Narrator than the first book.
