I have a lot of books I've bought or received in a fury of excitement, only to have them languish on the shelves. This is one of those books.
I really wanted to work The Devouring into Helluva Halloween, and had it planned, but then I bumped up my involvement in September Zombies and that just didn't happen. But someday (hopefully sooner rather than later) I will get to this. I received it as a gift from a friend on Goodreads when he saw it on my wishlist (thanks, Bill!).
When 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 musings of some lunatic author. But soon, they become a terrifying reality when she begins to suspect that her timid younger brother might be one of their victims.
Risking her life and her sanity, Reggie enters a living nightmare to save the people she loves. Can she devour her own fears before they devour her?
Bone-chilling, terrifying, thrilling...what are you waiting for?
<--- Man, just look at that cover.
Haunting and lovely.
