TEEN: Soulstice - Simon Holt


Beware the darkness and the light. They will steal your soul in day or night. In summer's warmth or winter's cold Your life will end when the Vours take hold. In the fearscape no one can hear you cry, And in its depth your soul will die. Reggie Halloway thought she was finished with the Vours - the demons who had possessed her brother, Henry - forever. She'd once faced them in a deathly battle for Henry's soul and now she wants to forget them. But Quinn, the Vour she left at the bottom of a lake, is back. And he is not alone.


Having missed the original novel in this series I was a little worried that I wouldn’t get as much enjoyment out of this tale as I hoped. Luckily enough I was wrong. It is beautifully written with some wonderful touches of macabre topped off with great dialogue and descriptiveness. With me enjoying this title so much so that I will be going back to pick up the original prior to a reread for the full experience.
