Publisher Description

A monster-hunting doctor and his apprentice face off against a plague of monsters in the first book of a terrifying series. Publishers Weekly says “horror lovers will be rapt.”

These are the secrets I have kept. So starts the diary of Will Henry, orphan and assistant to a doctor with a most unusual specialty: monster hunting. In the short time he has lived with the doctor in nineteenth-century New England, Will has grown accustomed to his late-night callers and dangerous business. But when one visitor comes with the body of a young girl and the monster that was eating her, Will’s world changes forever. The doctor has discovered a baby Anthropophagus—a headless monster that feeds through a mouth in its chest—and it signals a growing number of Anthropophagi. Will and the doctor must face the horror threatening to overtake and consume the world…before it is too late.

The Monstrumologist is the first stunning gothic adventure in a series that combines the terror of HP Lovecraft with the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle.

Whim1954 ,

not just for YA

oh yes, it’s wonderfully gruesome and gory at times . I read this series years ago but that didn’t take away from enjoying it again. Rick Yancy is a superb storyteller and writer. So turn down the lights, mute the phone and enjoy.

Lovecraftish......

This guy (Rick Yancey) is one helluva w Ritter, and I'm surprised he's been under my radar all this time. I had just finished The Fifth Wave, and was surprised to see that he had written other books, as I was under the impression that T5W w as his first novel-( whether or not its his first novel, it's going to make him very, very rich. I heard Hollywood has already come calling) anyway., after this one, I'm convinced, this guy has a long career ahead of him. I only hope he can find the time to finish this series once the fifth wave hits big- I am a fan

This book would make an awesome movie

I am a 38 yo woman and I enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful and unpredictable. It was dark, but very well crafted. I instantly fell in love with Will Henry wishing I could protect him from such a cruel existence. It would be great to see this book as a film as long as they stick to the story as written.
