Love so fierce it transcends even death.

When Elinor Baxtor arrives at the dilapidated Marshell House to settle the estate of her law firm's oldest client, she can't help but feel a little spooked. The creaking gothic mansion is a far cry from her life as an adventurous party girl back in London.

Then she meets Eric Marshell, a man dressed entirely in black with a wicked smile and the ability to float through walls. Eric was the violinist in popular rock band Ghost Symphony until a hit-and-run accident claimed his life. Now he's trapped inside his mother's house for all eternity, and the only one who can see or hear him is Elinor.

Eric and Elinor fight their attraction for each other as they dig into the mystery of Eric's death. But when they uncover a dark and sinister plot that threatens Elinor's life, their bond draws them into a world neither of them understands.

The Hollow is no ordinary haunted house.

The rooms change places, the walls are closing in, and every day the house gets closer to being crushed beneath the weight of the void between the fae and human worlds.

Aisling is the Hollow's last protector, a young woman ready to sacrifice herself to protect her family’s magic from falling into the hands of the fae. She knew the Hollow would eventually take her life. But she never imagined it would bring her the boy of her dreams.

Niall is a warrior, a fae born and bred for killing. But all his strength and guile can’t help him save his brother, who is being held prisoner by a rival fae. The only way Niall can save his brother is to gain enough magic to pay off his debt. And there’s only one ready source of residual magic in the city – the Hollow.

Now, Aisling and Niall are trapped inside the Hollow. As their enemies batter at the doors, desperate for entry, and the void between worlds threatens to consume them in eternal night, Aisling and Niall must battle their own demons and join forces to save the magic of the Hollow from falling into the wrong hands. 

If the Hollow falls, both worlds fall with it. But if Aisling and Niall succeed, they will be forced apart for all of eternity.

Hollow is a standalone paranormal romance novel by USA Today bestselling author Steffanie Holmes. Book II in the Fallen Sorcery shared world series, if you like stories of clever witches, deadly fae, and a house with a mind of his own, this book will be impossible to put down.

Unlock the secrets of your dreamlife with the latest in the hugely popular series of ‘Element Encyclopedias’. This is the most comprehensive A–Z reference book on dream interpretation you'll ever find.

Have you ever wondered what your dreams are trying to tell you?

Sixth in the series of ‘Element Encyclopedias’, this is the definitive guide to dream interpretation. Packed with fascinating information, The Element Encyclopedia of 20,000 Dreams is an extensive collection of the symbols that appear in your dreams and how to interpret what they mean for you.

Dreams are universal and every culture throughout history has tried to unlock the secrets of the unconscious mind through the interpretation of dreams. Understanding the unique meanings of dream symbols can help in the way you experience your waking everyday lives and even foretell the future.

Divided into easy-to-follow A–Z themed sections, from Animals, Conflict and Foreign Countries, to Monsters, Sex and Weather, this book holds compelling definitions of thousands of dream symbols that can also be found in the quick-reference Dream Directory at the back of the book.

Find out about the variety of dream types – such as cathartic, lucid and precognitive dreams – plus dreams in history and folklore. Discover different traditions of dream interpretation and dream theorists – for example, analytical psychologist Carl Jung thought that cats in dreams represent the secretive side of a person's nature, and they can also denote a desire for sex or a warning of hidden dangers.

Whatever your dream symbol or experience, you'll find an amazing treasure trove of interpretations here in The Element Encyclopedia of 20,000 Dreams.
