Reviews

"A page-turner of an historical horror that will simultaneously thrill readers and make them sick to their stomachs."--Kirkus Reviews
* "The chilling sequel to Yancey's Printz Honor book, The Monstrumologist, is as fast-paced, elegant, and, yes, gruesome as its predecessor."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"The Curse of the Wendigo is certain to be popular with fans of The Monstrumologist (S & S, 2009), and the horror genre in general."--School Library Journal
"The first-person narrative is brooding and atmospheric, conveying just the right sense of mystery and horror."--The Horn Book
* "Lush prose, devilish characterizations, and more honest emotion than any book involving copious de-facings (yes, you read that right) ought to have...Yancey has written both books in the Monstrumologist series as if they were the last, going for broke and playing for keeps, no matter who or what ends up on the chopping block. This is Warthrop's The Hound of the Baskervilles; if we hold our breath, maybe part 3 will come faster."
--Booklist, starred review
"Fans of Rick Yancey's first book in this series, Printz Honor Award winner The Monstrumologist will not be disappointed by this sequel. Yancey maintains his excellent, literary fiction style...Once again, Yancey skillfully weaves a tale that touches readers at a visceral level and will linger long in the imagination.--VOYA
