If you had asked me just last year I would have told you I didn t have a favorite fairy tale I grew up hating Snow White and while I adored nearly every Cinderella movie re telling I d seen the original story was not among my favorites at all As a child I never actually saw Beauty and the Beast or read the book until one fated French class when we saw an old black and white version of it in French Granted I didn t understand everything that was said as it was only my second year of French but I fell in love with the atmosphere and the very idea of the tale of finding beauty where other people could not Needless to say what makes The Hollow Kingdom such a successful re telling of Beauty and the Beast is its ability to perfectly capture that very same atmosphere I so fell in love with years ago For me the joy of a re told story lies not in its similarities to the original but rather in its differences As such The Hollow Kingdom pleasantly surprised me by being a tale not of a love that could transform a hideous beast into a beautiful prince but rather one of a love that could look beyond a monstrous exterior to the beauty that lay withinWhen The Hollow Kingdom begins it reads much like a Gothic mystery Hallow Hill the countryside residence where Kate and her younger sister Emily have recently moved to is a place with a dangerous past one where young girls vanish never to be seen again One night when Kate and Emily lose their way back home they come upon an encampment of gypsies who help lead them home Yet these nighttime travelers are no gypsies but goblins who have lived under Hallow Hill for centuries And now it is time for their powerful king Marak to marry Very uickly Marak decides on headstrong and stubborn Kate to become his bride but exacting her acceptance to his proposal is far harder than he imagines From the moment you read the first page of The Hollow Kingdom it is virtually impossible to set the book down Everything about it from its dark atmosphere to its witty banter will keep you flipping the pages frantically Kate is the type of heroine we all love strong intelligent and uick to avoid traps that most protagonists would have fallen for due to naivete Not only does she fight fiercely against Marak s advances but she even turns the tables on him during than one occasion Emily her younger sister is no less compelling charming us with her inuisitive nature and deep attachment for her older sister It is Marak who comes across as murky indefinite and hard to figure out Although Marak desperately needs Kate to become his bride and is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to take her underground with him it becomes obvious that he grudgingly respects Kate As he patiently deals with the curious nature of Emily answering her uestions about his magical world it becomes evident that whatever Marak s plans are hurting Kate isn t one of them Further despite his sarcastic and rather rude nature he cares deeply for his subjects and something about him ceases to be annoying and begins to become endearing We know that Marak is supposed to be the villain of this tale but gradually it becomes impossible for our hearts not to thaw towards himMoreover Marak sees Kate for who she really is not simply a beautiful girl who can continue his lineage and not as a weak willed lady who babbles about nonsensical creatures either As such he respects and even comes to love the very ualities that make her such a burden to her guardians Although both Kate and Marak are fiercely stubborn a trait which seems to cause them both nothing but irritation during their first few meetings it is this same uality that later binds them close to one another All in all the love story in this novel is flawlessly executed all side by side with descriptive prose and rich world building Nevertheless while The Hollow Kingdom had me completely besotted with it I couldn t help but be rather disappointed by the end In retrospect it isn t a huge ualm at all but one of the ending plot threads built to make Kate realize the extent of her affection for Marak was not one I particularly enjoyed I felt as though the same idea could have been built in a much poignant manner and this particular scene seemed to be thrown in to rush the inevitable ending for these two characters Additionally the writing leads you to believe that kisses lead to babies probably because it is written for a MG audience While I don t so much mind the latter issue I was expecting of a slow burn romance till the end rather than a sudden twist into adventure Yet let me re assure you The Hollow Kingdom is amazing A re imagined tale of Beauty and the Beast where the beast never turns into a handsome prince is a rare and wonderful thing to come by so don t let this one slip by your hands Even if you can t find yourself falling for an ugly goblin Dunkle will ensure that you do and believe me you won t want to leave this underground world even for just a glimpse of the starsYou can read this review and on my blog Ivy Book Bindings

The Hollow Kingdom

The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy Wikipedia The Hollow Kingdom Dunkle pens an inconsistent fantasy Freuently magical with compelling plot twists but weakened by awkward timing and uneven structure Close Kin Racial integration through wife napping makes for awkward fantasy despite a compellingly intricate structure Disturbing gender roles excessive moralizing and a rushed and incongruous conclusion keep this seuel from Characters | The Hollow Kingdom Wiki | Fandom He appears in The Hollow Kingdom as one of the goblins stolen by the sorcerer By the time Close Kin takes place he is dead and it is revealed that he is Richard's father Years before Mandrake had a sexual encounter with a prostitute while on a goblin trading journey Unknown to him they conceived Richard who the prostitute abandoned He is described as the best illusionist in the Guard The Hollow Kingdom Book I The Hollow The Hollow Kingdom the first book in Clare Dunkle's acclaimed fantasy trilogy will transport readers into a magical realm that Newbery Award winner Lloyd Alexander calls as persuasive as it is remarkable For thousands of years young women have been vanishing from Hall. This is a wonderful different kind of YA fantasy set in Victorian times in England It takes the old trope goblin kings kidnap beautiful girls marry them and they never see the light of day again and twists it Goblins are lovable even if ugly and um prone to kidnapping women for their wives You don t need to marry a handsome prince And it s done in a way that s honest and appealing the story has a great sense of humor but doesn t pull any punchesKate the main character who becomes the object of the goblin king s attention is one of my favorite young woman protagonists ever brave resourceful caring and intelligent She does an amazing job of battling for her freedom and her rights against both her guardian who s supposed to protect her but doesn t and the goblins The goblin king Marak accomplishes the almost impossible task of making me believe he s worthy of falling in love with when he s got several major strikes against him Girls may swoon when they see him but it s because his face causes horror rather than ecstasy and he s often brutal and pitiless But he s also highly intelligent and considerate when it doesn t interfere with his duties as goblin king He has a great resonant voice and a sense of humor and is a natural leader I thought the author was uite brave to even attempt this relationship and she pulls it off amazingly wellMy only real beef with this book is view spoilerI really wanted to read about how Kate and Marak s relationship grew from grudging respect on Kate s part to love For some reason Clare Dunkle chose to take about a year and a half leap forward in time totally skipping over that part of the story So if you read books for the tender kissing moments you ll be disappointed There s almost none of that hide spoiler

    This book is exactly the type of fairy tale that I love the most Now I know that I have been outspoken in the past about my dislike of fantasies featuring caveman bad boy type hero characters However I think that I know and respect dozens of women who melt in the presence of these guys Do I look down on my friends for their fantasy preference
