The Devouring iHeartMonster : Alternative-Spooks Giveaway! Day 8, Giveaway #1

I prefer this cover!
But this cover is beautiful and fits what is currently around in this genre

Thanks to IheartMonster, we are able to offer a print copy of The Devouring by Simon Holt to one lucky reader... Just answer the question in comments for a chance to win ;)

Happy Halloween!

Here's the gossip:

Fifteen-year-old Reggie doesn’t know who penned the mysterious journal about the Vours, wicked creatures that inhabit children’s bodies on Sorry Night, the darkness of the winter solstice. Once inside a human, the Vour assumes the victim’s personality, banishing their soul to a dark netherworld called a fearscape. Frightening, but thought to be only the musings of an anonymous lunatic...until a midnight game awakens an ancient evil.

After playing with the journal’s incantations on Sorry Night, Reggie and her best friend Aaron discover the story of the Vours is all too real. When a demonic force consumes Reggie’s little brother, Henry, she must race to save him. Slowly, she uncovers the truth: Vours have existed since the dawn of mankind, feeding on humanity’s fright. Reggie acquires the ability to enter victims’ fearscapes, psychic prisons sculpted from pure terror. Once inside, she must empower victims to conquer their fear and destroy the Vours that have enslaved them.

Together with a small band of believers, Reggie wages war against an enemy she cannot touch or reason with, creatures powerful enough to enslave human bodies and steal souls without detection. The Vours gorge themselves on human fear-feeding their guile, their cruelty, and their power. A cataclysm called “The Devouring” approaches, and only Reggie Halloway can stop it.

  1. Thank you @iheartmonster !!

  2. I LIKE the top cover better,but to garner any interest from most female readers (they pick by cover more than most) it would have to be the second..... my suggestion_ a holographic for print where the second is topmost,but the first one with possibly the monster's face devouring someone as second...

    I like both covers but for the horror genre, I would have to say that the top one is the best. :)


  4. Thanks for your comment, Jase. :)

  5. It's very 'in your face!' I have to agree, Dea! :)

  6. Sorry about that! LOL But I get your point. It's definitely not for everyone. :)

  7. I think the cover with the girl is better because it will draw more people in and doesn't advertise the horrors within.

  8. I prefer the top cover just because I am passing over all these 'pretty girl on cover' books now as they just look so samey, samey.

    I love witchypoo's suggestion of the hologram - I'd love to stand and watch pople pick the book up and then recoil back bit! Ahahaha!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a sassy comment. It's truly appreciated. I aim to get back to you as soon as possible -- Sassy :)
