Simon & Schuster has just released The Monstrumologist, a young adult novel by author Rick Yancey which Booklist recently called “the best horror novel of the year.”
Description: Will Henry is an orphaned assistant to Dr. Pellinore Warthrop, a man with a most unusual specialty: monstrumology, the study of monsters. In his time with the doctor, Will has met many a mysterious late-night visitor, and seen things he never imagined were real. But when a grave robber comes calling in the middle of the night with a gruesome find, he brings with him their most deadly case yet. Author Rick Yancey explores the darkest heart of man and monster and asks the question: When does a man become the very thing he hunts?
