Review: The Devouring By Simon Holt

Summary
"When dark creeps in and eats the light,
Bury your fears on Sorry Night.

For in the winter's blackest hours,

Comes the feasting of the Vours,

No one can see it, the life they stole,

Your body's here but not your soul..."
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.
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?
The Devouring is an engrossing tale of terror that will have you wondering: what if your worst fears became your living nightmare?
Review
This book was crazy intense. I loved it! I'm completely amazed by the writing. The non stop action was literally playing like a scary movie in my head. Filled with pure creepyness the story did not disappoint at all. I even felt the urge to clap at the end and say "Good Job Henry!" lol! The story itself is completely unique and I can't wait to find out what happens next in this world filled with fear eating monsters. I have so many questions. I'm definitely reading part 2! 5 stars all the way!
