in which the reviews come in

The reviews for THIS MONSTROUS THING are starting to come in.

And guys, they’re awesome!

Kirkus Reviews says it’s “More than just a Gothic romance novel; the settings give a nice international feel. The old and new…are woven together in language and theme creating a solid tale that explores what it means to be human. Part homage to a sci-fi original, part re-imagining, plenty of teen torment and trouble—an absorbing read.”

Publisher’s Weekly calls it an “accomplished first novel” (a phrase I’m probably going to get tattooed on my forehead) and describes the characters as “suitably tormented, in accordance with Romantic tradition.” Meaning that now I have a new life goal, which is to live every day like a suitably tormented Romantic hero.

  1. I’m really looking forward to reading this book. I love Frankenstein, but I also love the Gothic tradition and it seems you nailed it. Good luck.
