The Vours: Evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the winter solstice.
This isn’t how the horror ended for us this is how it began.
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 mad woman’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 dev our her?
The Devouring is an engrossing tale of terror that will have you wondering: What if your worst fears became your living nightmares?
The Devouring was a extremely unique and very awesome story. I like horror stories and this one was no excemption. Its not too scary but there are some moments that make you think why I am I reading this book at night with barely any lights on in the house. At first Reggie's character made me kind of mad because she was kinda mean to her little brother when he was scared, as the story continued I started to like her more cause the author gave you a better understanding to her actions. The Devouring is one of those books that you can't put down once you start. I reallly look forward to reading more books by Simon Holt and I'm hoping that there's a sequel to The Devouring.
