Imagine moving to a completely new place only to feel that your every move is being watched.  Then to be abducted and taken to a place under ground where there is no sunlight and to be told that you would stay there forever as the bride of the goblin king!  This is exactly what happened to Kate Winslow in nineteenth century Coventry, England. At the death of her father, she and her sister Emily move to an estate inherited from their mother, Hallow Hill.  There they meet Marak, king of the goblins.  As the story progresses, a mystery begins to unveil itself.  Someone is trying to kill the two girls.  Read Hollow Kingdom to find out how this mystery is solved.  ( South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
