|From The Publisher*||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 fiancée 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.
|Review Quote*||* "Lush prose, devilish characterizations, and more honest emotion than any book involving copious de-facings (yes, you read that right) ought to have...Yancey has written both books in the Monstrumologist series as if they were the last, going for broke and playing for keeps, no matter who or what ends up on the chopping block. This is Warthrop's The Hound of the Baskervilles; if we hold our breath, maybe part 3 will come faster."|
|Review Quote*||* "A page-turner of an historical horror that will simultaneously thrill readers and make them sick to their stomachs."|
|Review Quote*||* "The chilling sequel to Yancey's The Monstrumologist, is as fast-paced, elegant, and, yes, gruesome as its predecessor."|
|Review Quote*||"Yancey maintains his excellent, literary fiction style...Once again, Yancey skillfully weaves a tale that touches readers at a visceral level and will linger long in the imagination."|
