When Reggie finds an old journal and reads about the Vours, supernatural creatures who feast on fear and attack on the eve of the winter solstice, she assumes they are just the musings of some lunatic author. But soon, they become a terrifying reality when she begins to suspect that her timid younger brother might be one of their victims.

Risking her life and her sanity, Reggie enters a living nightmare to save the people she loves. Can she devour own her fears before they devour her?
Review: I'm gonna keep this review brief, hopefully, and tell you that this book is creepy. Really creepy. It's got plenty of gross stuff in it.

When I read a book, it's kind of like I'm watching a show through three sheets of wax paper. I can see it, but it's really fuzzy. Not vivid at all. If you're the kind of person with a really vivid inner-eye, you might want to be careful. This is the kind of stuff you see in movies like The Grudge, The Ring, etc. (In case you were wondering, I haven't seen either of those. I don't have the stomach for scary movies.)
