The Hollow Places
Goodreads Choice Finalist 2020
Can horror even be this rollicking, this fun, while still delivering on the creepiness, the dread, the ick? In Kingfisher’s hands, it can. ~Stephen Graham Jones, acclaimed author of The Only Good Indians
Kingfisher imagines the horrors lying between worlds in this chilling supernatural thriller…Kingfisher has crafted a truly terrifying monster with minimal descriptions that leave the reader’s imagination to run wild. With well-timed humor and perfect scares, this one is a keeper for horror fans. ~Publisher's Weekly
There are no cheap scares here…entirely of the author’s wonderfully twisted and endlessly fertile imagination….The perfect tale for fans of horror with heart. ~Kirkus Reviews
Pray they are hungry.
Kara finds the words in the mysterious bunker that she’s discovered behind a hole in the wall of her uncle’s house. Freshly divorced and living back at home, Kara now becomes obsessed with these cryptic words and starts exploring this peculiar area—only to discover that it holds portals to countless alternate realities. But these places are haunted by creatures that seem to hear thoughts…and the more one fears them, the stronger they become.
With her distinctive “delightfully fresh and subversive” (SF Bluestocking) prose and the strange, sinister wonder found in Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, The Hollow Places is another compelling and white-knuckled horror novel that you won’t be able to put down.
