Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] riveting debut... Complex characters and creepy concepts will leave readers chomping for the next volume."--Kirkus Reviews

"A grimly exhilarating tale of monsters in the woods and monstrous family legacies-and teens brave enough to fight them both. This New England Gothic will devour you."--Rosamund Hodge, author of Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound

"The Devouring Gray is part horror, part fantasy, and one great read. Filled with magic, deception, and family ties, this book is a must-read. Especially recommended for fans of Stranger Things."--Katherine Warde, Micawber's Bookstore

"Gripping and terrifying, The Devouring Gray will have you sleeping with one eye open, if at all."--Javier Ramirez, The Book Table

"This book will grab you by the shirt collar and won't let go till the very last page."--Nichole Cousins, White Birch Books

"The Devouring Gray is an irresistible blend of unforgettable characters and spine-tingling horror. Full of witchy atmosphere; lush, detailed writing; and a trope-breaking, endearing group cast, this book will ensnare you and leave you deliciously haunted. A stunning debut."--Amanda Foody, author of Ace of Shades and Daughter of the Burning City

"By the end of page one, I was hooked. By the end of chapter one, I was entranced. The pages of this book breathe and shiver and thrum, just like the trees of Herman's deliciously eerie woods. These characters are unforgettable; the imagery is sublime. Fans of The Raven Boys and Stranger Things rejoice: This is your new obsession."--Claire Legrand, New York Times best-selling author of Furyborn

"The only thing better than a chosen one is four chosen ones, and the only thing better than four chosen ones is four chosen ones who don't like each other very much. The Devouring Gray takes privilege and legacy by the throat and never lets go."--E. K. Johnston, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Star Wars: Ahsoka and A Thousand Nights

5.0 out of 5 stars This left me breathless and I need the sequel immediately!
By Thebookbella on May 7, 2019
"People could hurt each other without being monsters. And they could love each other without being saints."

TW: parental abuse and manipulation; offbook death of a cat, familial death and discussion of, grief and death discussions, intense scenes,

The town of Four Paths is haunted by a monster that comes in a mist. The mist devours its victims. Usually, this monster only takes one but lately the death rate has increased. Four founding families, each with their own supernatural abilities, are honored in the town with protecting the people against the mist. Things really start to change when Violet Saunders moves back to town after her sister dies only to discover abilities she didn't know she possessed in a haunted town that needs her more than ever.

There are alot of political dynamics in this town because of certain founding families that are fighting to maintain their power in a town who is losing faith in their ability to protect them. With so many deaths, a time is coming when the feuding of these founding families needs to be set aside in order to defeat an ancient evil.

This felt very supernatural with all the mist and the mystery surrounding the mist; but all the mystery also left me breathless by the end and wanting this story to never be over with. I make no underestimation when I say I was on the literal edge of my seat when all the big reveals started taking place and I couldn't have been happier with this.

There was so much lore to the background of this story and felt so rich in history. I absolutely loved how they captured the dynamics with regards to the four family's founding children, and how the feuding between the families effected those dynamics. There was enough tension to keep things interesting, but not so much that relationships couldn't be formed and built upon.

Also, there was rep for LGBTQ+ which was super refreshing in a story like this. Usually this rep dominates contemporary only and it was well placed throughout this book.

I absolutely loved this and I need the sequel immediately!
