If Shannon Hale and the Brothers Grimm had collaborated on writing Frankenstein, the result might look something like Monstrous. Kymera is a girl brought back from the dead. She wakes up with a body patched together with pieces from various animals, no memory of her life before she died, and a singular purpose given to her by her father: she must rescue the girls of the kingdom of Bryre, who are victims of a mysterious illness and a tyrannical wizard. But as Kymera begins her quest for justice, she begins to uncover dark secrets about her own past. A perfect read for young readers making the switch from middle grade to YA, or for adult readers looking for a little more magic.
