Fearscape Review


Title: Fearscape (The Devouring #3)
Author: Simon Holt
Publication Date: October 5, 2010
Published By: Little Brown
Format: Hardcover, 314 pages

Summary
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.

My Thoughts
An awesome end to an awesome series. Sometimes the final book in a series is disappointing and lackluster, but I love each and every one of these books and the last is no exception.
Reggie is the bravest and most selfless girl I've ever read. She never ceases to impress me. She stands strong in the face of unspeakable horrors and never to her own end. She will, and does absolutely everything she can to keep her family, friends and even complete strangers safe, sacrificing herself and her sanity in the process.
Aaron and Quinn both get to show new sides of themselves in Fearscape, both characters have endured a lot and come a long way since The Devouring, it's always fun to see characters grow and change through a series.
The plot in Fearscape as with the first two books is fast paced and totally engrossing. Holt always has a curve ball to throw at you that's completely unexpected and keeps you on your toes. This series is one of the most underrated I've read. More people need to give these books a shot and experience the creepy but thrilling world of the Vours. 5 out of 5.
