Reviews

"A wonderful mix of period fiction and gothic horror"--The Horn Book
* "The relationship between Will and his master has never been more complex...Yancey's skill as a stylist cannot be denied."--Booklist, starred review
* "Articulately literary, horrifically grotesque and mind-bendingly complex, Yancey's trilogy conclusion might be the best of the Monstrumologist trilogy. His 19th-century dialogue and descriptions run even smoother than the previous two titles, and his characters have grown deeply complex. He deftly blurs lines between science and the supernatural, and what results is a long, dark-night-of-the-soul journey for both Will Henry and Pellinore that is certain to turn the hearts and the stomachs of every reader who dares open its pages."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"An excellent addition to an amazing series. The language is perfect, era-appropriate, and wryly humorous. The details are gruesome and horrific and not for the squeamish. The action is exciting and well-paced. The characters, their relationships, and the moral dilemmas they face, however, are the true hub of the story. Warthrop is gorgeously complex--at turns petulant and enthusiastic, selfish and giving, frighteningly intelligent, then blinded by ambition. But it is Will Henry who grows in this story, as he starts truly becoming a man...This is a wonderful book, and readers will yearn for the next in the series."--VOYA
