Praise for House of Hollow

"Stepping nimbly among the liminal spaces and eerie real-world haunts of our heroine's cipher-sister, this haunting modern fairy tale will wrap you up like a glittering fog, before going for your throat." --Melissa Albert, New York Times bestselling author of The Hazel Wood

β˜… "Sutherland keeps this haunting, contemporary fairy tale poised on the edge of gorgeous and gruesome, with visceral descriptions of sensual yet menacing magic hidden in the everyday. . . Hand this to your Nova Ren Suma and Melissa Albert fans." --Booklist, starred review

β˜… "This is slow-burn horror with imagery steeped in the senses . . . and Sutherland maximizes tension by playing into familiar tropes and then tearing away from them . . . The ending manages to be both horrific and heartbreaking . . . [with a] lingering chill." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"Wonderfully creepy and full of unnerving supernatural flourishes." --PopSugar

"[Readers] will be eviscerated. . . Alive with lush language and a dark fairy tale feel, this is a compelling readalike for lovers of Holly Black's many wonderful fair folk standalones and series." --School Library Journal

"Smart and assured narration easily carries a fast-paced story entwining themes of grief and loss with elements of folklore and some very inventive body horror. The pervasive feeling of dread builds to a shocking twist. A lush and darkly twisted modern fairy tale." --Kirkus Reviews

"Filled with evocative detail, Sutherland's dark fantasy teems with eerie atmosphere . . . [in] Sutherland's carefully crafted fantasy world. Readers who are delighted by stories of the uncanny . . . will find themselves enchanted." --Publishers Weekly

"In House of Hollow, Krystal Sutherland turns her razor-sharp imagination to new horizons and proves, once again, that words blossom at her command. This story will steal up your spine, slip beneath your skin, and stick to you like honey." --Samantha Shannon, New York Times bestselling author of the Bone Season series and The Priory of the Orange Tree

"Filled with lush language and a fairy tale feel, this horror story takes readers on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. . . Hand this to your readers who love Holly Black books and dark twisted fairytales. This high speed ride will catapult readers to an end many may see coming, but which is nevertheless shocking when it finally arrives." --School Library Connection

"This dark, deliciously twisted novel has everything you could hope for as a reader--a brilliant concept, glamorous characters with secrets to hide, immersive world-building, and some of the finest writing I've seen in YA fiction. I'll put it like this--I am obsessed with House of Hollow." --Louise O'Neill, author of Printz Award Honoree Asking for It

"Dark and delicious, House of Hollow hums with malice and mystery. I devoured it whole." --Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies

"An intoxicating, gorgeously grotesque fever dream full of the impossible stench of carrion flowers, the allure of haunted stairways in the woods and doors leading nowhere. A beautifully crafted, addictively dark fairy tale with horns!" --Dawn Kurtagich, author of The Dead House
