Description
(A Michael L. Printz Honor Book) "These are the secrets I have kept. This is the trust I never betrayed. But he is dead now and has been for nearly ninety years, the one who gave me his trust, the one for whom I kept these secrets. The one who saved me ... and the one who cursed me." With these words from the memoir of Will Henry, orphan and apprentice to a doctor with a most unusual specialty, Rick Yancey begins his bloody, gothic horror series about monster hunters in the Victorian era, for readers 14 and up. In the short time he has lived with doctor Pellinore Warthrop, 12-year-old Will has grown accustomed to his late night callers and dangerous business. Then one visitor arrives with the body of a young woman—and the monster that was eating her—and Will's world changes forever. The creature is an Anthropophagus, a headless biped that feeds through a mouth in its chest, and where there is one, there will be many more. Together, Will and the doctor must now face the horror threatening to overtake and consume our world before it is too late.

"This story is gothic horror at its finest and most disturbing. A cross between Mary Shelley and Stephen King, the tale will force readers to stay up late to finish and then remain awake, afraid to shut off the lights.... The richness of the language, the strain of wry humor, and the perfectly drawn characters make it a marvelous read ... perfect for readers who want their nightmares in a literary package."—VOYA

"This has all the elements of the best Victorian mystery and horror.... Readers who like their horror truly horrible and yet archly distant and peppered with ecstatic Victorian-scented comments on the woes of the human condition will jump right in and not emerge until the last relieved gasp."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
