TOTBT Day 14: Devoured Review
Devoured by Amanda Marrow...
Megan’s twin sister Remy died in an accident nine years ago, and she’s been haunting her ever since. Knowing how crazy that sounds, Megan keeps this secret to herself and tries to lead a normal life. But when she takes a summer job at Land of Enchantment to keep an eye on her new boyfriend and his lovesick best friend, Samantha, she meets fellow employee Luke who can see Remy, too. Things get even twistier because Megan’s new friend Ari is sporting a massive crush on Luke, who seems to be developing a massive crush on Megan…making for a love triangle that’s positively possessed. Megan wants to keep her distance from Luke, but when Remy’s visions get crazy violent; she knows she needs his help. Because someone’s definitely in danger...the only question is who?
Oh!My! Thats all i have to say! I really do need to research books more often because this one blew me away! DEVOURED is a very fun-creepy sort of read! Her sisters ghost, Remy, brings the creepy element, while the disney element is fun! Throughout the novel Devoured has a Snow White theme. I loved the classic elements like the talking mirror, poisined apple, and witch! All of these elements have a modern spin on them though! I was scared to death by some of these elements!
The setting worked really well too! Megan works at the Land of Enchantment theme park, which you think wouldnt be scary, but is actually very haunting! The Characters were a riot! My favorite was her BFF, who is a very loud and knows Megan too well. Megan's New Friend Ari is way creepy, she has these impossible mood swings that i would be affraid of. Everthing about DEVOURED was perfectly good! It had the right amount of Scare Factor with a hint of love, and self discovery! (Although i'm a big wimp, so it actually might not be that scary) A great read for halloween with Ghosts and Creepy talking mirrors! Check it out!
P.S.- isnt the Cover Crazy Fabulous????
