In a future laid waste by environmental catastrophe, one woman in a shielded megacity discovers a secret hidden within-and the nightmare of what lies beyond. A rash of strange deaths in the Tahoe National Forest bring Sam, Dean and Bobby to the Sierra Nevada mountains to hunt a monster with a taste for human flesh. Soon walking corpses, bodies with missing organs, and attacks by a mysterious flying creature lead the trio to a cunning and deadly foe which can assume a human form and will do anything to survive.

Voracious, by Alice Henderson was a decent book. Alice Henderson does an excellent job of keeping the audience in suspense. The protagonist, Madeline, is hunted by a supernatural creature in Glacier National Park. A psychic, she must use her unwanted gift to stay ahead of the game. It definitely wasn't the best book I've read, but it wasn't too bad. I didn't feel that the love interest was natural, as in, I felt like the author put it in there just so teenage girls could rant about how much they love him, or whatever.

Sobbing, he rolled into a tight ball, his body shaking. Madeline went to him, sat next to him. Stroking his back soothingly, she said softly, Noa. e’ll think of something. der at her words and shrugged away from her touch. Still she sat on the edge of the bed, watching his heaving and shaking body. Mucus streamed from his nose, mingling with tears. Only occasionally he’d suck in a deep breath, shuddering, wheezing, and another great wail would explode from him. It was the kind of crying she hadn’t done herself since she lost Ellie, the day she.

I simply could not put Voracious down. Alice Henderson writes with such authenticity of Glacier National Park and so her vivid descriptions transported me to those dark forests and foreboding, glacier-clad mountains. Madeline, the protagonist, has the gift of precognition and for this, she is isolated and ostracized but we, the readers feel for her as she faces unfathomable challenges. From page one, she must not only battle those emotional issues but also dark forces that almost consume her. The pace is breakneck and the reader is carried along as the sinister being unleashes evil beyond words. What makes this more than a supernatural thriller is how MS Henderson's interweaves history, folklore, environmentalism into the plot. We are also drawn into a love story that is unusual and unique but it breathes life and humanity into the story. I could say more, but my advice is to read this book. I don't think you will be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book. It's got supernatural, suspense, and even a little romance all rolled into one. It's rare for me to find a book that keeps me guessing, but through every page I couldn't stop thinking about all the possibilities of what could happen next.

Voracious is a real page-turner! Alice Henderson does an excellent job of keeping the audience in suspense. The protagonist, Madeline, is hunted by a supernatural creature in Glacier National Park. A psychic, she must use her unwanted gift to stay ahead of the game. A fast and tense pace is maintained throughout; well worth the read!

Suspense filled all the way through.

Interesting and fast paced. Great vivid imagery. If this is her first full novel, I am impressed. Fast read though.

This horror novel is about a young woman named Madeline who has the psychic power to tap into people's thoughts when she comes in contact with something they have touched. Because of this ability, everyone in the small Montana town where she grew up socially ostracizes her, even her parents. Fortunately, she has met a friend in the form of a new resident, George, and equally fortunate is her future as a college student far away.

Tired of alienation and rejection, she takes a trip to Glacial National Park, where she encounters a monster far more horrible than social stigma. When Madeline was fourteen years old, a serial killer who knew about her psychic abilities killed her best friend in front of her, and Madeline believed that if the killer hadn't known about her powers, he would have left her friend alone. Ever since then, Madeline has considered her "gift" a curse and has vowed not to ever use it to help detect murders, because she doesn't want to absorb so many evil memories and thoughts and thus experience similar trauma. However, now that a monster is hunting her and killing others in Glacial National Park, she must use her psychic powers or the monster will continue killing.

Voracious is a gripping and terrifying novel that is character-driven and with a particularly strong female protagonist. It reminds me of Frankenstein, due to the monster chasing Madeline, the threat of others' deaths, and above all Madeline's conversations with the monster, which is intelligent and capable of human speech. Full of vivid description, fast-paced action, and suspense, I highly recommend this book.

My copy of Voracious came yesterday morning and I can say that Alice Henderson is a welcome fresh face to the dark fantasy genre. Voracious moves along at a blistering pace. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I'm a huge fan of dark fantasy and to be honest I've been finding good dark fantasy harder to find of late. In Voracious, however, the author drew me into the world. I found the action and suspense gripping and the characters to be very engaging. For instance, you can feel Madeline's grief over how her "gift" has made her different. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say this about the predator that is hunting the main character; WOW! What an awesome character. It's not the typical vampire or werewolf found in many dark fantasy novels; rather it is something entirely new. If you enjoy horror and dark fantasy get this book. After reading Voracious, I'm definitely keeping an eye out for the next book by Alice Henderson.
I loved this book and soooooooooooo wanted to read more but she hasn't put out a second book for this......I'm sooooooooo sad that this world she created isn't becoming more and more books...... :(
