Will Henry and Dr. Warthrop have encountered many horrors together—but can Will endure a monstrumological terror without his mentor?Will Henry has been through more that seems possible for a boy of fourteen. He’s been on the brink of death on more than one occasion, he has gazed into hell—and hell has stared back at him, and known his face. But through it all, Dr. Warthrop has been at his side. When Dr. Warthrop fears that Will’s loyalties may be shifting, he turns on Will with a fury, determined to reclaim his young apprentice’s devotion. And so Will must face one of the most horrific creatures of his monstrumology career—and he must face it alone. Over the course of one day, Will’s life—and Pellinor Warthrop’s destiny—will lie in balance. In the terrifying depths of the Monstrumarium, they will face a monster more terrible than any they could have imagined—and their fates will be decided.

Done for Sockpoppet’s 2014 Reading Challenge I is for Ice—this book left me cold. Everyone who’s read the the first three books of The Monstromolugist series knows how the series is going to end. At the very beginning of the the first book, we already see the person Will Henry has become—he was...
I think one of the greatest things about Yancey’s writing is that it’s so general and yet very precise at the same time. The concepts are universal—and so are the monsters—but they are universal in their precision. The anthropophagi are my favorite. I saw them clearly in my mind’s eye—so clearly tha...
