Week 40 Review: The Devouring

From Goodreads:
"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?

My Review:
What a scary book! To have something that feeds on your fears, takes over your body and sends you to their world, yeah. Scary. I'm not too much into scary, I've only watched 5 horror movies, 4 of them being the Scream ones. So yeah. Scary's not really my best thing. But anyways.

I really loved this book! It was just really creepy, and creepy good, with pain, suffering, and a whole lot of conflict and lies, mostly on the part of the bad guy, who had taken over your little brother. Yep.

I have some questions, but since it's the first in as far as I know a total of 3 books, I think they'll be answered, because of that.

Really great creepy book, loved it, and I hope someone ends up with this one person, but from some reviews I've read, I don't think it'll happen, but I'll still hope until I read them!

I hope you guys check out this book! And the series, of course!
