About the Author
J. M. Miro lives and writes in the Pacific Northwest. Ordinary Monsters is the first book in The Talents series.

Ordinary Monsters is a towering achievement: a dazzling mountain of wild invention, Dickensian eccentrics, supernatural horrors, and gripping suspense. Be warned... once you step into this penny dreadful to end all penny dreadfuls, you'll never want to leave. --Joe Hill, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman and Heart-Shaped Box

Haunting, tense, earth-shattering ... A riveting mix of magic and terror. --Tamora Pierce, author of
Trickster's Choice and In the Hand of the Goddess

Brilliant, subtle, bone-breaking. A book that creeps up on you, wearing brass knuckles. --Conn Iggulden, author of The Dangerous Book for Boys

From the very first page, you're pulled into a world of hope and fear, dark and light, the known and the unimaginable. A world that is equal parts magic and pain. Readers should prepare themselves: there's nothing ordinary about Ordinary Monsters. --Alma Katsu, author of The Fervor and The Hunger

Ordinary Monsters is one of my favorite books of the year--it's full of surprises, atmospheric as hell, and moves like a runaway train. Nothing in this book is what you expect it to be and it couldn't be more satisfying. --Kelly Braffet, author of Save Yourself and Last Seen Leaving

J.M. Miro's Ordinary Monsters reads like a Dickensian X-Men. At once lush and refined, grounded and fantastical, it will pull you into its world in the way of the most fulfilling entertainments. --Andrew Pyper, bestselling author of The Residence and The Demonologist

Epic, sprawling, and evocative--a sweeping and richly-imagined gaslight fantasy that takes readers on an incredible journey. Miro immerses us in the grime and grit of life, but also makes them believe that monsters and miracles are possible. --A.C. Wise, author of Hooked

Miro's debut has a fascinating magical system...The vivid cinematic quality of the world and its magic will appeal to classic-fantasy lovers. --Booklist

A fast-paced novel whose action and intrigue make short work of its daunting page count... --Kirkus

I totally devoured Ordinary Monsters. What a banger! --Camden Avery, The Booksmith

Complex, creepy, and atmospheric fantasy fiction. Looking forward to book two in the trilogy. --Laura Harvey, Copper Dog Books

Deeply thought-provoking and engaging. --Emily Autenrieth, A Seat at the Table Books

It's been a minute since I found a book that both intrigued and terrified me, but J.M. Miro's novel fits the bill! l loved this cast of 'monsters' like were old friends. --Mystery To Me Bookstore

Ordinary Monsters is the first in what promises to be my next series addiction. --Mackenzie Johnston, Out West Books

...one of the most refreshing and engrossing books I have read... --Lark and Owl Bookstore
