Waiting on Wednesday (73)--The Devouring #3: Fearscape by Simon Holt

Release Date: October 5, 2010 from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers


The Vours: evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the Winter Solstice.

It's been a year since Reggie first discovered the Vours, and the Winter Solstice is approaching once again. It will be another night of unspeakable horror for those unlucky enough to be taken by the Vours, because this time, she won't be able to stop them. The Vours have imprisoned Reggie in a psychiatric hospital, where she is subjected to a daily routine of unfathomably sadistic experiments. Her life is a living Hell, but she won't give up. They attacked her brother. They killed her friend. And Reggie will never stop fighting back.

I really loved the first two books in this series. They're great thrillers that kept me reading well into the wee small hours. Can't wait for this one!


  1. I can't wait for this one either. The ending of the last one was such a cliffhanger. Great WOW pick!

  2. I am not familiar with this series, but I am intrigued since the action occurs on my birthday (the winter solstice). I will definitely have to look into these books

  3. OMG I can't wait! I love this series.

  4. YES!!!!! I can't wait for this one too :)

  5. I finished it this morning, I love it! It's my favorite of the series. It closes up the trilogy well but leaves it open for more. It also very thought-provoking questions. I found it very hard to put down
