Title: Soulstice Author: Simon Holt Publisher: Little, Brown Number Of Pages: 266 Publication Date: September 1st, 2009

Synopsis from back of book: (WARNING: Don’t read this synopsis if you haven’t read the first book!!!)

The Vours: Evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the winter soulstice.

Six months…

Since Reggie first discovered the existence of the Vours in a tattered journal. Since her little brother, Henry, began to mutilate animals and turn against her. Since she learned to devour her fear and destroyed a Vour to save Henry.

The Vours still haunt Reggie, but only in her dreams—until one horrifying night, when an unexpected visitor turns her nightmares into reality.

Terrifying, nail-biting, and grossly intriguing, readers will devour this thrilling sequel.

Review: Soulstice, I have to say is a little disappointing. I loved the Devouring and didn’t love this one as much. Instead of it being creepy like the Devouring it was just disgusting. I thought the plot was well thought out and a cool idea, but I wished it was more creepy. I really, really hope that the third and final installment is better than Soulstice. It had good writing, great characters, but was a little too gross for me. Although, the ending was amazing and left off on a giant cliffhanger. Overall, it was sort of a disappointment.

I recommend this book if you like creepy(gross) books, demons, and young adult novels.


  1. I couldn't read ths synopsis. Devouring sounds like an interesting read but Soulstice doesn't sounds like a good follow-up. Thanks for an honest review :)

  2. What a cool cover! I just can't figure out if the yellow stuff is daffodils or something else? Do you know??

  3. This doesn't sound quite like my type of book. Yikes!
