REVIEW The Devouring

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 musin I finished this book with an undecided feeling It was a good read and kept my interest I'm not sure that I enjoyed it that much A very interesting concept about creatures that take over the body of a person who is absolutely terrified on Sorry Night which is the night of the Winter Solstice I heard about this book and read some positive reviews and decided to go for it I have no regrets that I did read it but I have to say that there were things I could have liked better about this book The opening was excellent really unnerving me I started this book right before bedtime and I had to read a little bit of a romance book before I turned off the light and went to sleep It sets the reader up to know this wouldn't be an especially gentle horror storyWhen I asked myself what didn't uite ring true to me about this story I am encouraged to go and analyze it I didn't dislike the main characters Reggie was a sympathetic protagonist She's been forced to grow up too fast coercedencouraged by her father to take the role of her mother who left the family and has not returned She's only fifteen and she wants to do the normal things that a fifteen year old does but she is pretty much forced to raise her younger brother Henry who is eight since her father works a demanding construction contracting job and is emotionally withdrawn Going into the story you feel her longing to be 'normal' and to not have the weight of the world on her shoulders Mixed in is some resentment towards her younger brother who has gotten clingy instead of independent This sets the stage for what will happen in this sibling relationshipReggie works in a small bookstore that caters towards the horrorgothic tastes She unpacks a box of books and finds a diary looking book in the box called The Devouring which she decides to read with her best friend Aaron on Sorry Night She and Aaron expose themselves to their individual worst phobias and chant the mysterious poem at the beginning of the journal This somehow seems to activate the vour to take her brother's soul for he is the most frightened in the house Reggie puts him to bed and he sits in the dark afraid out of his mind easy prey for this evil beingFrom there this story turns into a 'Bad Seed' kind of narrative as Henry becomes increasingly not like himself He becomes cruel and violent commiting acts that are increasingly disturbing Reggie doesn't put two and two together at first which I found annoying Clearly her brother is not acting normal and his skin becomes very cold to the touch It takes too long for her to get a clue but I was glad that she is scolded by her boss at the bookstore Eben for diddling around with this journal and she didn't know what she was doingReggie has to face her worst fears and delve into the fearscape where her brother's consciousness has been entrapped in order to get him back and to save him from the Vours They are after her as well They thrive on fear and Reggie has walked a tightrope of being brave she's a major horror buff and fighting her real life fears I thought this was a good message about not letting your fears control you and facing the truth instead of avoiding the acceptance of things that you don't want to face and you know you cannot changeI liked Reggie's buddy Aaron who is a bit of a geek and who shares her love of horror movies but also has a fascination with serial killers He is a true friend to her the whole time and I got the impression he might have a crush on Reggie although she's fixated on footballe
