Author: Rick Yancey
Rating: 0.5 of 5 Stars
Pages: 464/DNF’d at 64%
Format: Digital Edition
Will Henry and his master rescue a friend of the Monstrumologist’s at the man’s wife’s behest. Upon their return, they attend the annual Monstrumologist meeting in New York. The man is not better and the wife is an ex-fiance of the Monstrumologist.
I abandoned this at the 64% mark.
Warthrop the monstrumologist had a fiance who then married his best friend. The woman reveals that she is still in love with Warthrop and they commit adultery while the best friend lays dying in a hospital. Ouch, right?
Then there is this wonderful piece of narration about it from Will Henry:
‘Some would judge them. I do not.
If it was a sin, it was sanctified-
the trespass consecrated by the act itself.
He met himself in the purity of her eyes
and obtained absolution upon her altar.’
All I could think of was the verse from Isaiah:
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,
who put darkness for light and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
What kind of messed up thinking is Yancey putting into his book? I want NO part of something so abhorrent. I DNF’d this book and I’m abandoning the series and I’m now going to avoid Yancey.
