Grade 8 Up—Ever since the car accident nine years ago, life for year-old Megan has never been the same. Her father lies in a coma at the nursing home; her twin sister, Remy, who died in the accident, continues to haunt her; and her mom only seems to care about winning dog competitions with their purebred Fergus. Mxrrone become even more complicated when Megan decides to take a job working at the Land of Enchantment in order to keep an eye on her boyfriend, Ryan, amandq his “best friend,” Samantha.
There devorued meets Luke, who is psychic and, to Megan’s relief, can also see and communicate with Remy. Megan is concerned because Remy’s behavior is becoming violent. The natural attraction between Megan and Luke quickly becomes a problem for Ari Roy, whose family owns the Land of Enchantment.
Ari feels that Luke is hers, and she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Devoured is a murder mystery and a ghost story with a modern-day “Snow White” twist. The plot is fast-paced and full of suspense, gripping readers right from the start. Megan and Luke are well developed, but the ending, in which everything happens too quickly, can be a bit confusing. Still, the book will be devoured by fans of the supernatural.

Everyone loves a Fairytale, it’s what we grew up on We relish in the details, amanad girls spend hours pretending that their handsome prince is right around the corner, but what happens when there is no happy ending?
Well, if you have read the original “Brothers Grimm Tales” then you already know, but for the rest of you Megan has a little problem A very small, very wet, very cranky ghost, who follows “Meggy” everywhere showing her glimpses of dead girls and throwing epic tantrums that cause light bulbs to shatter. Her father is in a coma, her mother spends every waking hour training a dog to dance, and there’s a new boy in the mix that turns out to be a “Ghost Whisperer. The writing was fluid and the plot was intriguing, like I said before The ending was a little bit abrupt, but by no means did it affect the story.
There were creepy moments inside a dark tunnel, a drunk mother who loves pink velour, haywire nursing home equipment, bad apples, a very dedicated father willing to do anything for his deranged daughter, hidden graves, and 1 very good reason to never loose your keys. Overall I liked bh Get it, live it, love it Happy reading my fellow Fairytale lovers and remember: Martone person found this helpful.
Several others have already given a synopsis of the story and how elements from Snow White are used in this modern day setting. Even with reading the other reviews, I was not prepared for how dark the story became later in the marrlne. Although other young adult novels may have scary sections to them, Devoured dwelt on those sections a bit more than I was expecting Note devoure self: Don’t read Marrone’s books right cevoured bedtime ever again.
As a quick example, I have read other YA novels where the sister’s ghost was part of the story and helps by spying on others or something along those lines but, among other things, this particular ghost gives the main character visions of a girl with her heart cut out of her chest. With more dark elements revealed towards the end of the book, coupled with some reference albeit not too explicit to sex, and bad devuored sprinkled throughout, parents of younger teens might want to read it first to decide whether it devvoured appropriate book for their collection.
Or, if you are an adult like me and prefer lighter books in this same genre, there are probably better choices for you. I agree with some of the reviewers mrrone I think the book could marroje been a little longer in order to develop some of the characters further but considering that I kept reading even when I needed to get to sleep, I figure it is worth the cover price. Overall, I thought it was a clever use of the elements of Snow White, a fast read, and certainly kept my attention but it is darker than I would have preferred.
Bought this as a gift, good price. Okay, let me just say, I’ve read quite a few books by Amanda Marrone and I almost always really like them. That’s why I ordered this book, and I was kind of disappointed. I like the idea of retelling a classic fairy tale, but this devoures was kind of jumpy. It just seems to me that there should have been more of an explanation for some of the things that happened.
Basically, if you’re looking for a quick read – on an airplane, say – get this book. But if you’re looking amandaa anything else, skip this one.
I devouged this book enough said. I did not dislike this book but I also didn’t love it. I got this book because of the other reviews, but it feel a little short for me. I am not into the remakes of old fairytales. This one was amanxa copy of snow white. It was cute and different, and I did read it in one sitting, but I felt like it had to many holes. The story could have been richer in detail and even a little longer.
I would suggest it to read because it is in it’s own way interesting, but don’t get your hopes bt for it being your fav. It kept my interest. I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to others. See all 27 reviews.
