Reminiscent of Frankenstein and tales by the Brothers Grimm, this debut novel stands out as a compelling, original story that has the feel of a classic.

The city of Bryre suffers under the magic of an evil wizard. Because of his curse, girls sicken and disappear without a trace, and all live in fear. No one is allowed outside after dark. Night is when Kymera comes to the city, with a cloak disguising her wings, the bolts in her neck, and her spiky tail. Her mission is to rescue the girls of Bryre. Despite Kym's caution in going secretively, a boy named Ren sees and befriends her . . . but what he knows will change her world forever.

Review:

"Like a literary mad scientist, MarcyKate Connolly takes bits from classic fairy tales and legends and uses them to assemble a creation that is wholly original and wonderfully strange. Subversive, bewitching, and whip-smart, Monstrous is a marvel of storytelling alchemy. --Anne Ursu, author of Breadcrumbs--.

"Kym's bravery shines, as she fights against the menacing forces in Bryre and also struggles to figure out where she, a self-described monster of a girl, belongs. This remarkable, absorbing debut will enchant readers. --Rebecca Behrens, author of When Audrey Met Alice--.

"Pays tribute to classic fairy tales while turning the tradition on its head. A smart, ambitious adventure, led by a heroine whose differences only enhance her humanity." --Emma Trevayne, author of Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times--.

"This is a dazzling and unique once-upon-a-time about a girl who is part dragon, part bird, part cat, all hero." --Natalie Lloyd, author of A Snicker of Magic--.

A likely read-aloud that has its share of guts, blood, and grim reality within this fantasy land, Monstrous will keep young readers thinking about trust, good and evil, friendship and loyalty, and devotion to community.--Booklist

Connolly invokes fairy-tale elements with ease, and... the formidable theme of sacrifice resonates far beyond the final page.--Publishers Weekly

Readers seeking a lengthy, thoughtful novel, particularly those who appreciate careful world-building, will find this worth their time.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
