Flesh-eating danger abounds in the chilling sequel to The Monstrumologist that is "as fast-paced, elegant, and yes, gruesome as its predecessor" ( Publishers Weekly , starred review).

While Dr. Warthrop is attempting to disprove that Homo vampiris , the vampire, could exist, his former fianc#65533;e asks him to save her husband, who has been captured by a Wendigo--a creature that starves even as it gorges itself on human flesh. Although Dr. Warthrop considers the Wendigo to be fictitious, he relents and performs the rescue--but is he right to doubt the Wendigo's existence? Can the doctor and Will Henry hunt down the ultimate predator, who, like the legendary vampire, is neither living nor dead, and whose hunger for human flesh is never satisfied?

This second book in The Monstrumologist series explores the line between myth and reality, love and hate, genius and madness.

This series is a quite a hard one to go through, and in this book it's not only because of how gory it can get but also how brutally honest it talks about the relationship between Dr. Warthrop and Will Henry. Pretty much all of the characters in here had brought out certain aspects of the two,both good and bad. I went through a lot of emotions feeling for them in this one, and I love that it's very sanguineous. It's an impressive sequel to a very good first novel in the series.

This book out of the three currently published, played on my heart strings the most.

Didn't take me any time at all to finish this book, and it is without a doubt my favourite so far! Amazing story and crazy twists and turns. I love how we get to see a different side of Dr. Warthrop in this one :D
