Hollowland (The Hollows #1) by Amanda Hocking:

    "This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door."

    Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

 About the author:

lives in Minnesota, and I write young adult paranormal romance and urban fantasy mostly. The My Blood Approves series is about vampires in Minneapolis, and its available now. I also wrote the Trylle Trilogy, which is a paranormal romance without vampires, shifters, mermaids, fae, angels, dragons, ghosts, or ninjas.

My latest book is Hollowland - a zombie urban fantasy set in the dystopian near future. It's a bit more violent and gritter than my other books, but there is still romance. Mostly though, Remy kicks a lot of butt.

My review:

    * This is a young adult title with some language, violence, and mild sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up.
     Amanda does not mess around when writing a zombie book! The main character Remy is at a school safe house when it is attacked by zombies. She learns that her eight year old brother was evacuated to somewhere in the north. She basically loses everyone she knows and has to make a run for it. and that's just chapter one.
    Can I just say I think it is so cool that her main source of protection is a lioness she finds chained to a truck on the side of the road. If I were In the middle of a zombie apocalypse I definitely want a lioness who's willing to eat zombies by my side.

    You can tell that Amanda put alot of thought into this book. From every little detail she describes to every situation they come across. the characters are so well defined and their personalities so their own. It's easy to let your mind slip right into the story and get to know it on a personal level.

     Hollowland is a fast paced book with lots of action, Well duh zombies lol , but it also has very heartbreaking and even tender moments that make it a very well proportioned book.

    This is a great book for those of you who really love the post apocalyptic/dystopian and or zombie genres' as well as anyone else looking for a really good YA book to read. I would also like to mention that this is a free kindle read at
    Book # 2 in the Hollows series:

     After six months in the quarantine, Remy finds out things are much worse than she feared. Her plans to escape come with a heavy cost, and she realizes that zombies aren't the worst of her problems.
