Reseña del editor
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.
Biografía del autor
Simon Holt's writing career began with a horror fanzine in high school, the publishing of which overheated the school's photocopier. Undaunted by detention, he's continued to pursue writing ever since. Holt supported himself as a hotel night clerk and a handbag salesman before becoming a full-time novelist. A comic book collector and amateur musician, he makes his home in

The tension was still there, though. The notion of 'would Reggie make it out or wouldn't she' kept me turning the pages to find out. While I wasn't afraid like I was for the first book, I still wanted to get to the end and find out how all of this resolved itself.
The major twist of the story I kind of saw coming but it didn't hamper it down for me at all. It still kept its creep factor and that's the important part. Even though I could see it coming, what I couldn't see was the characters' reactions to it. So reading for that alone was worth it.
The ending provides the story with a nice resolve without it being all fluffy bunnies and rainbow farts about it. There's still a major threat out there when the story ends but there's enough hope running through everyone that the future doesn't look totally dismal. That's what I really liked about FEARSCAPE - it provided me with a nominally happy ending without it being illogically so. There's nothing I hate more in horror than a happy ending that just doesn't fit the rest of the story.
I went into FEARSCAPE with the reservation that it might be a bit of a turd. I hadn't heard too great of things about the final book in THE DEVOURING series but I didn't mind it. By the way of horror, it could have been a hell of a lot worse. Nothing can s*** the bed more like a bad horror sequel and this one didn't do that. It kept the tension up, it maintained its spook factor and it royally screwed with the characters. I really can't ask for more. I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. I wouldn't call it fantastic but all things considering, it was pretty decent. If you've read the other books in the series, I don't think this would disappoint a fan. And if you haven't read the others, I'd highly recommend them. YA needs more horror like this.
"When dark creeps in and eats the light,
Bury your fears on Sorry Night.
For in the winter's blackest hours,
Comes the feasting of the Vours,
No one can see it, the life they stole,
Your body's here but not your soul..."
That tiny part alone sounded SO CREEPY, that I just NEEDED to read it and find out for myself if it's as good as it seems.
Reggie Halloway is the type of girl who just loves anything scary. Just to be clear, she's a horror fan. It could be anything ranging from movies to books, scary stories anything. While she's at the bookstore were she works one day, she runs into an old journal that grabs her attention immediately. After she decides to "borrow" the book and takes it home with her, she begans to read what appear to be the ranttings of a mad woman. Soon after, things start getting weird. She starts having nightmares, Henry's (her brother) pet goes missing and he himself is acting a bit odd. Once she realizes whats happening to him, Reggie and her friend Aaron will do anything and everything possible to try and save him.
This is the type of book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, it'll keep you up at night, it'll scare you (at least it scared me..), and it'll have you turning the page until your finished. I found myself unable to put this book down! I would even take it with me to work and read it whenever I wasn't with a client. Simon Holt did a great job with the storyline of this book. I'm lucky enough to have the following 2 books in the series so I don't have to worry about having to wait to read them (YAY for me!!). I give this book 5 out of 5 hearts. I've got my fingers crossed that book 2 will be as good. I definitely plan on keeping my eyes open for any other books Simon Holt might have out or that are in process.
I haven't read a horror book in a very long time. I've always loved horror stories and I thought what better month to read one than October? The book started off very strong. Creepy from the very beginning.
Reggie and Aaron, the main characters were great. Both had there quirks. The setting of Cutter's Ridge was fantastic. It generally seemed like somewhere something scary would happen.
The Vours were scary! The beginning of the book read like a horror movie and I was pretty creeped out. Here comes the BUT.
The last hundred pages or so took a big turn that was almost laughable at times. It went from being freaking scary to annoying. That being said I still enjoyed the book. There was a plausible reason for the turn the book took. When you read it you will see what I'm talking about. I have already order the second book Solstice and plan on reading it.
