Summary

From Amazon's number-one best-selling author in Gothic romance comes a haunting and forbidden love strong enough to murder fears and break centuries-old curses.

Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Fallon who was taken far away from home shortly after she was born. A home that held more than strange traditions and bizarre superstitions. Twenty-four years later, she returned to Weeping Hollow, a town she'd only heard about in stories during restless nights under a marble moon, to take care of her last living relative.

They called the nosy mortician a freakshow--a ghastly thing. They said I couldn't go near her. Still, there was this aching pull to Fallon Grimaldi that I couldn't escape. A nostalgic pull as if we'd been here before.

Once upon a time, there lived a mysterious boy named Julian with a curse as old as centuries wrapped around his soul. He was one of the four Hollow Heathens, the very dark creatures who caused the townspeople to live in fear. And the Blackwell name was stained with darkness and death. They called him a monster. Cold and hollow. They said I shouldn't go near him. Still, there was this aching pull to Julian Blackwell that I couldn't escape. A nostalgic pull as if we'd been here before.

Hollow Heathens can be listened to as a stand-alone or within the interconnected series. For a better listening experience, listen to the books in the order they are published.

wow, wow, WOW

My words will not give this audiobook the justice it deserves.
I said something similar when I first read the book. However, the narration of the book took it one step further.

I got sucked into the heathen's world once more. Fallon and Julian's story—unique, tragic, exquisitely written, and beautiful—warmed my heart all over again.

Lilly, Vincent and Zara did such a fantastic job of narrating this book that I completely ignored my kindle for the duration of this book. It was possibly the best audiobook I have ever listened to.

Heathen Season!

I read this book last year and absolutely loved it! Nicole is a wonderful writer and storyteller. With the release of book 2 in the series coming in the next few months I had planned to do a re read and this audio came at the perfect time.

If you love magic and mystery, curses, forbidden love, cosy fall reads, romance and star crossed lovers. This book is for you. Fallon and Julian are wonderful and I adore their story!

The Narrators did a fantastic job with this Audio. Giving a voice to our favourite Weeping Hollow characters and really bringing the story to life and doing the book justice. I throughly enjoyed it and whether you choose to read the book or listen to it. You’re in for a treat 🖤

Perfect Autumn read! Though the story is so great it sucks you in, so really there’s never a wrong time to read and listen to it 🖤

Highly Recommend 5+++ STARS

5++ MOONCHILD STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

If it was possible to give more than 5 stars I would.

Nicole Fiorina’s writing is raw and poetic, gripping and unforgettable.

This audiobook is my second reread of this story I and fell in love with all that is Weeping Hollow and the cursed Heathen boys all over again.

If you love star crossed lovers fantasy, cursed witches, a bone chilling gothic setting and some eerie Stephen King vibes this story is not to be missed. The romance is well balanced in this story but the core plot stand well on its own.

This story will never leave me, the characters, the emotions the visual imagery… this is the kind of story you’ll want to devour in it entirety and savour at the same time.
It’s fair to say this book is all consuming to read and as a reader Weeping Hollow wouldn’t let me go too.

The audiobook narration brought not only the characters to life but the whole story. Both narrator’s’ performance took this story to whole new level. Fallon’s emotions were so palpable throughout she was and captured perfectly by Lilly Drake. And Vincent’s voice was magnetic, dark and oozed everything and more than I could imagine Julian to be.

I could go on and on about this audiobook/ story but I’ll let you make up your mind yourself.
This is the perfect October/ Autumnal read- ready for a heart stopping read that will give you goosebumps!!

Perfection 🌙

Honestly listening to hollow heathens for the first time was just as good as reading hollow heathens for the first time….
I said that this would always be up there as a top read for me, and listening to these guys has just shot it up the leaderboard as my new favourite audiobook ….
I gushed and gushed to everybody when I first read it and now I’ll be doing the same to the audio, and what a perfect season to listen to it….

I’m going to do another listen in the lead up to Halloween because now it just wouldn’t feel right not to…

Amazing

It was magical

This audiobook changed everything for me!

I fell in love with the narrators performance - I was under a spell throughout the story!
I love the narrators Nicole Fiorina has picked out for Julian and Fallon.. they were a fitting match.. I’m usually very picky when it comes to audiobooks.. the narrators have to “match the characters” for me to continue listening - and they complement each other well!

I could just sit back in my cosy hollow heathens hoodie with my pumpkin spice latte and travel back to Blackwell.
I was sucked in within seconds; into my favorite spooky world - ahh it’s super romantic just like the very first time I read the book! It's all about the feels #weareallmonsters

I loved the way I felt during the story - it was magical! The vibes and everything that comes with the story.

It is a beautiful narration of my favorite fantasy book - I really loved it! I highly recommend it to everyone; even people who prefers to read only - light up a scented candle grab a cosy blanket and your favorite cosy drink, give it a try!

Occult Horror Romance

Hollow Heathens: Book of Blackwell by Nicole Fiorina is an occult horror romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Lilly Drake, Vincent Skye, and Zara Eden. This is the first book in Tales Of Weeping Hollow series.

I originally read this book in 2020 when it was released and was so excited to see it come to life in audio.

I have to say the publisher note sums up the book perfectly "A forbidden, timeless, and haunting love story."

Nicole is an amazing writer! She pulled me in to the story from the very first chapter and I never wanted it to end. I absolutely loved Fallon and Julian story.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Bone Island: Book Of Danvers to be released on September13, 2022.

Lilly, Vincent, and Zara did an amazing job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would highly recommend this book! This is the perfect book to read in October!

Liked this a lot

I liked this a lot, don't get me wrong. I was a little confused in spots about who was whom and what was going on, but overall it added to the creepy, gothic, witchy vibes and I was here for that. This is my first read by this author and I can totally see what all the buzz is about. The audio somehow seemed to ratchet up the gothic atmosphere and I can hardly wait to read more about the Heathens. If witchy romance with full gothic vibes are your thing (they aren't usually mime but I dug this) I'd recommend this. I volunteered to listen to a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

Forbidden love with a drop of mystery and magic

I fell in love last year with this book and this year I was so excited to listen to this book.
The narration brought perfectly the spooky moments, the mystery and the magic of this town.
This book tells the story of a forbidden love, the story of witches and covens and how two people fell in love and didn’t let anyone get in the way.

Nicole writes feelings in a very unique way and I absolute adore it. Most importantly, Lilly, Vice t and Zara bring all to live making this the perfect audiobook for October.
Spooky, mysterious, sexy and witchy.
If you haven’t added Hollow Heathens to you library yet, DO IT. You won’t regret it

I'm so glad I read this book

Nicole has a way of gripping your heart. This story was a wild ride and a perfect October read. These characters will stay with me for a while. I bet this becomes a reoccurring read for me. I'll definitely be recommending it to my fellow readers. Fallon and Julian's story was beautiful and timeless. I loved every minute of it.

Just couldn't finish...

Great narrator but the storyline just didn't jell with me. Far too much teenage angst, self-doubt, etc. More angst than the Twilight series. Audible's Return policy is a real gift to frequent readers and, with this book, I used it.

I don't know why all of the reviews are so....

I don't know why all of the reviews are so praising of this book??

The book was okay but veru repetative and many parts just didn't make much sense to me and was all over the place. The main female narrator seriously needs to practice allot more before she ever does another audible book because she sounds like a child struggling to read. She pauses and breaks and doesnt read ahead. It's extremely annoying and frustrating and then she whispers and reads way to quiet so much so I kept trying to turn my volume up but couldn't because the volume was already all the way up. I was at rhe point to where I just wanted to quit the book alrogether but I pushed through still didn't get much better for me. She does okay the rest of time but definetly needs allot of practice. The male narrator wasn't bad but his lisp is extremly destracting. Needless to say I was not impressed with the narrators or the story. Not at all was I hoping for. The reviews had me hoping for so much more. There must be allot of youngsters writing these reviews.

Amazing and completely captured by this listen

So many thoughts running thorough my mind after finishing this listen. The narrators were amazing and had the perfect accents, intonations and voices for these characters

The story itself was breathtaking. It had magic and century old lores, angst, so many emotions and so much more. I was completely entranced with this story and the Magic’s journey it took me on.there was so much going on but so easy to follow and had me in tears at a few different points with a gasp out loud at one of the plot twists. The author did a phenomenal job writing this book and providing just enough information at just the right points so as to not overwhelm the reader

Amazing

Meant to post this earlier today but work got CRAZY, but I’ve spent the last few weeks with my spiked apple cider in Weeping Hollow.

Okay so this is not my first rodeo with Hollow Heathens, but it is the first time I’ve listened to it.
@authornicolefiorina was so kind and sent me an arc of the audio of this and y’all, SHE DID THE DAMN THING.
This audio was so amazing. The narrators absolutely nailed it. Every single character had such a distinct voice.
If you haven’t read this, do it now! And when the audio book is available, do yourself a favor and download it!

Love the experience of the audiobook!

Hollow Heathens is without a doubt, my favorite book of all time. Hauntingly poetic, incredibly romantic and so many connecting parts to the story. After reading the book several times, I was so excited to finally be able to listen to the story be read back to me and the experience was AMAZING. The narrators are perfect, and it felt like a movie playing inside my mind. This will definitely be an audiobook that I listen to at least once were year! Highly recommend.
