With its campy, surrealistic, sci-fi world, Nightvale initially reminds one of Douglas' Hitchhiker's Guide. The clever and often silly narration style provides an amusing tone familiar to fans of the podcast but still manages to stay accessible to newcomes to Nightvale, without every seeming redundant. Definitely recommend to readers seeking a fun yet pertinently satirical adventure into what may well be one of the great sci-fi universes of the 21st century. -Ashley— From Ashley
“Even if you've never heard of Night Vale, I truly believe you'll enjoy It Devours. It's a book about science and religion. It's a book about belonging and how sometimes to truly understand what is happening, you may need an outsider's perspective. It's also a book about a friendly desert town that finds its way into some of the strangest predicaments, and the people who live there. In other words, it's superbly written science fiction that deserves to be read more than once.”
— Allison Skaggs (W), Lowry's Books, Three Rivers, MI
