Reminiscent of Frankenstein and tales by the Brothers Grimm, this fantasy novel, hailed by award-winning author Anne Ursu as "a marvel of storytelling alchemy" stands out as a compelling, original story that has the feel of a classic.

The city of Bryre suffers under the magic of an evil wizard. Because of his curse, girls sicken and disappear without a trace and all live in fear. No one is allowed outside after dark.

Night is when Kymera comes to the city, with a cloak disguising her wings, the bolts in her neck, and her spiky tail. Her mission is to rescue the girls of Bryre. Despite Kym's caution to go secretively, a boy named Ren sees and befriends her...but what he knows will change her world forever.

Review quote

-Like a literary mad scientist, MarcyKate Connolly takes bits from classic fairy tales and legends and uses them to assemble a creation that is wholly original and wonderfully strange. Subversive, bewitching, and whip-smart, Monstrous is a marvel of storytelling alchemy. --Anne Ursu, author of Breadcrumbs--.
