Book Review: Soulstice by Simon Holt
The Vours: Evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the winter soulstice."
Since Reggie first discovered the existence of Vours in a tattered journal.
Since her little brother, Henry, began to mutilate animals and turn against her.
Since she learned to overcome her fear and destroyed a Vour to save Henry.
Now as the summer solstice approaches, the Vours still haunt Reggie, but only in her dreams- until one night, when an unexpected visitor turns her nightmares into reality."
MY RATING: 9/10
I still get amazed by the ideas behind a Vour. A monster that you can't see, a monster that can live all around you, and mostly a monster that knows everyones deepest fear.
However Simon Holt came up with this idea, I must say I'm jealous of his imagination.
I loved the characters and found this book alot better than the first one. The action was the perfect amount and you got to know the main character more.
I would suggest this book to anyone who is interested in horror or mystery.
There is a little bit of strong language and in my library it was found in the Young Adult section... just so you know!
THANKS SIMON HOLT FOR A GIRL WHO CAN CONQUER HER FEARS
