House of Hollow
by Krystal Sutherland (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2021); audiobook read by Eleanor Bennett (Bolinda, 2021)
YA with slow-festering horror elements and excellent characterisation (memorably voiced by Eleanor Bennett). The story unfolds in well-pitched reveals, blending action and reflection. The ending lacks punch but Sutherland deserves credit for trusting the concept, not fiddling retroactively or adding extraneous twists.
