Only a Monster

By Vanessa Len
Only a Monster by Vanessa Len digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

The sweeping romance of Passenger meets the dark fantasy edge of This Savage Song in this stunning contemporary fantasy debut from Vanessa Len, where the line between monster and hero is razor thin.

Don’t forget the rule. No one can know what you are. What we are. You must never tell anyone about monsters.

Joan has just learned the truth: her family are monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers.

And the cute boy at work isn’t just a boy: he’s a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to destroy her family.

To save herself and her family, Joan will have to do what she fears most: embrace her own monstrousness. Because in this story…she is not the hero.

Dive deep into the world of Only a Monster: hidden worlds dwell in the shadows, beautiful monsters with untold powers walk among humans, and secrets are the most powerful weapon of all.

Slightly Smiling Face
Likable charactersEasy to read
Surprised Face with Open Mouth“I started this not expecting it to be 5 star and I sure didn't expect to cry at the end. It seems I got far more attached to the characters and the overall story than I had anticipated. It had a mixture of cliché and unpredictable tropes which made this really enjoyable for me. It is the first book in a trilogy, but has a wrapped up ending!”
