My Feelings:

It's been six months since Reggie first discovered and fought against the Vours, malicious and demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on the eve of the Winter Solstice.

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

My Review:
The one thing that I learned from reading The Devouring was that afterwards I needed to read something light and fluffy. Something that I can delve into and just forget about the scariness and creepy stuff that happened in the previous book. And even though The Devouring scared the wits out of me, I still wanted to continue this series and therefore I bought Soulstice.

I really liked Reggie. She is still the protective older sister and wants to save the children who are trapped in the fearscape. She has a lot of courage and isn’t afraid of doing the right thing.

I also liked Aaron a lot. He is very logical. Reggie comes up with a plan, and Aaron is the first one to think it trough. He is also loyal to Reggie, righteous and scared. But even with him being scared he does not tell this to Reggie. He always thinks of her and puts her safety first.

I wanted to put my trust in the visitor, and I kind of did. I really liked that the visitor came back into the story and with the twist and turns in the end I was surprised by its actions.

Soulstice is fast paced and an action filled story. There are a lot of creepy parts, but they didn’t scared me as much as The Devouring. However I did read those parts in broad daylight, so it could change if I reread this one at night.

Fearscape is the third book in this grossly intriguing series and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Fearscape comes out in September 2010.

I need to pick this one up for a Halloween read! I read the first book around this time last year, and I really enjoyed it. Definitely creepy!

I've read the Devouring last year and it was pretty scary so looking forward to starting this one soon.

I think I liked this one better than the first book. I felt like I learned more!

Sounds a bit too scary for my liking - certainly not a book to be read at bed time.
