MONSTRUMOLOGIST by Rick Yancey: Kindle Daily Deal today only $1.99

Kindle Daily Deal that I just picked up for $1.99 today. It’s been on my Wishlist for a while. What a deal!

From Amazon:These are the secrets I have kept. This is the trust I never betrayed. But he is dead now and has been for nearly ninety years, the one who gave me his trust, the one for whom I kept these secrets. The one who saved me . . . and the one who cursed me.

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, 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 is about to change 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. Now, Will and the doctor must face the horror threatenning to overtake and consume our world before it is too late.

The Monstrumologist is the first stunning gothic adventure in a series that combines the spirit of HP Lovecraft with the storytelling ability of Rick Riorden.

*Sigh* Another book for my list of purchased books to read… In the great words of Nine Inch Nails: “I pick [books] up, I am a collector, and [books], well [books], they tend to accumulate…”

    I purchased this book on your recommendation and it is on my Kindle Fire right now. I will have to read it next after my current book.

      I hope you like it. It is a “kids” book, but one that I definitely think transcends that label, like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a “kids” book but not. It’s also pretty dark, I mean reviewers compare it to Lovecraft, but, hey, what a compliment.
