Katie Erich's Northern English accent transports listeners to the windswept Yorkshire moors in this atmospheric fantasy about a woman on the run. Devon grows up among book eaters--a mysterious species that consumes books instead of food. When her son is born with a rare condition that gives him a hunger for human brains, not books, she sets off on a dangerous journey to save him--and herself. Erich's pacing is perfect. She delivers breathless chase scenes at a fever pitch and voices Devon's thoughts with a constant edge of fear and desperation. Her portrayal of Devon's son, a five-year-old who has consumed the minds of grown humans, is both chilling and heartbreaking. This is a darkly beautiful book about violent family legacies and impossible choices. L.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
