"The Vours: Evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the winter solstice. When Reggie reads about the Vours in a mysterious old journal, she assumes they are just the musings of an anonymous lunatic. But when her little brother, Henry, begins to act strangely, it's clear that these creatures exist beyond a madwoman's imagination, and Reggie finds out what happens when fears come to life.October was supposed to be a month of spooky reads. I set it all up ahead of time and had everything planned out for maximum scariness. Unfortunately, most of the books I read in October lacked in horror, gore and basic spine-tingliness. That is, until I read The Devouring. I picked it up on a whim from the bookstore. I hadn't heard a lot about it but what I had heard had been positive so I decided to go for it. I pushed the rest of the TBR pile aside and dug right in. It was the best decision I could have made. Simon Holt managed to take the concept of our own fear and use it against us in the best possible way. The story was unpredictable, fun and absolutely terrifying. It is a tale of how we let our own fear control us and hold us prisoner.
To save the people she loves, Reggie must learn to survive in a world of nightmares. Can she devour her own fears before they devour her?" ~Goodreads
