"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"
* "The relationship between Will and his master has never been more complex...Yancey's skill as a stylist cannot be denied."--"Booklist", starred review
"A wonderful mix of period fiction and gothic horror"--"The Horn Book"
* "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

I'm not going to make a "So and so meets so and so" author comparison, because Yancey populates his own league, and often the authors people compare Yancey to are inferior. If you've gotten this far (this is the third installment in a series, though each story is self-contained), you know what I'm talking about. If somehow you came across this book before The Monstrumologist, I actually envy you. Start there, and thank me later.
For those already familiar with the series looking to see if they should pick this one up as well...frankly I doubt anyone like that exists, because you probably had this on pre-order months ago. But yes, Rick is in top form. Get excited for the UPS truck to arrive (or click that download button, post haste).
