It’s halfway through the year already! And here in the chilly depths of Australian winter, it’s good to know there’s a warm fireside tale coming our way this month…
WE WHO HUNT THE HOLLOW is the debut YA novel by Kate Murray, a New Zealander transplanted to Melbourne who is a full-time parent and writer. Shortlisted for the Ampersand Prize, WE WHO HUNT THE HOLLOW looks good enough to keep off the winter blues – check out the blurb here:
Seventeen-year-old Priscilla Daalman’s entire family are Hollow Warriors – legendary monster hunters charged with killing evil beasts from beyond our universe. She’s desperate to live up to that legacy, but she’s convinced neither she, nor her superpower – the ability to sense Hollow energy – is up to the task.
But when Priscilla attempts a desperate ritual to enhance her abilities, she accidentally triggers a frightening new power: the power to summon monsters from the Hollow itself. Now, Priscilla must protect her loved ones – her heartbroken ex-girlfriend, her mysterious new boyfriend, even her fierce warrior family – from supernatural monsters, and also from herself. Because if her power gets out, all hell will break loose … and Priscilla will risk losing everything.
I hope you enjoy this one to mark the mid-year point! Happy reading and see you on the group page later in the month for an author Q&A and title discussion 😊
