The Devouring by Simon Holt

Rating 5

Reviewed by Kat, grade 9

For anyone who loves suspense, goosebumps, and anxiety, The Devouring is for you.  Your heart races, the hair on the back of your neck rises, and you can't wait to turn the page.  The book casts you there to what Reggie, one of the main characters is feeling and experiencing.  You will feel anger, fear, dread, joy, and sympathy with the book characters.  If you love the Devouring, don't forget to read the other two: Soulstice and Fearscape.
