book Ý The Devouring Æ Simon Holt

R sanity Reggie enters a living nightmare to save the people she loves Can she devour own her fears before they devour herBone chilling terrifying thrilling what are you waiting f Reggie is a horror fan; she figures reading all those scary books and watching all those scary movies is a sort of preparation for the real thing real fear But for Reggie real fear is just arachnophobia for example something real she can name So when she stumbles upon a mysterious journal detailing the horrors of certain demonic beings called Vours that take over human bodies she dismisses it as a work of fiction But she can’t deny the strange coincidence of her little brother Henry acting very strangely—and after Sorry Night the only time that Vours can invade bodies And when Henry’s behavior becomes erratic and destructive Reggie realizes that she had no idea what real fear was before—because now she’s living itThe Devouring is a suspenseful paranormal novel with elements of horror Its strongest point is by far its uniue plot which I found exciting original and unpredictable with its combination of mystery familiar problems and all encompassing fear The characters on the other hand are a bit hard to connect with even Reggie with her fierce determination She was a little too easily blinded by cute popular boys and seemed to be spooked easily despite her claims to have conuered her fears Another problem I have was that I often felt removed from the story despite vivid and horrifying details because it felt so unreal Part of this is due to how fast paced The Devouring is; Reggie had to adapt almost too uickly sometimes it seemed to each new situation I am a little disappointed because thought The Devouring would’ve been better but it is still an interesting read with a scientific twist to fearFans of Peeps and The Midnighters trilogy both by Scott Westerfeld and The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong will likely enjoy this intriguing readreposted from

The DevouringWhen Reggie finds an old journal and reads about the Vours supernatural creatures who feast on fear and attack on the eve of the winter solstice she assumes they are just the musi Normally I do not dig horror booksThis is not totally true I went through a brief John Saul phase in Jr High school I don't really dig gore and being scared out of my skin but this book is very goodWhat's good about it is the main character is extremely brave She faces up to her fears to help save her brother She isn't some wussy girl who needs to be rescued You don't really get enough of that in books I think
