The Hollow Kind seeps into your subconscious and waits for you in your nightmares.”S. A. Cosby, bestselling author of Razorblade Tears

Andy Davidson’s epic horror novel about the spectacular decline of the Redfern family, haunted by an ancient evil.


When Nellie Gardner learns that she has inherited a turpentine estate from her long-lost grandfather, she throws everything she can think of in her pickup and flees to Georgia with her eleven-year-old son, Max, in tow.

August Redfern’s “estate” is a decrepit farmhouse on a thousand acres of old pine forest, but Nellie sees it as the perfect refuge—a safe place to hide from her violent husband and the chance for a fresh start. But Max sees what his mother can’t: Redfern Hill is no haven. Something lurks beneath the soil, ancient and hungry, with the power to corrupt hearts and destroy souls. And Nellie’s return is about to wake it up.

From the author of
The Boatman’s Daughter comes a jaw-dropping, terrifying novel about legacy and the nightmares hidden in family histories. Andy Davidson’s The Hollow Kind is a twisted tale of cosmic horror mixed with a stunning Southern Gothic fable that will haunt you long after you turn the final page.
