Description
In this second volume in the Monstrumologist series, every bit the gruesome, gory equal of the first (which was named a Michael L. Printz Honor Book), Will Henry opens the front door of Doctor Warthrop's house to see the most beautiful women he has ever met. Muriel Chanler has come to ask the doctor to find her husband John—once Warthrop's best friend—who disappeared while trying to find evidence of the Wendigo, a cannibal with an insatiable appetite. But Warthrop refuses to believe the Wendigo is anything but a myth, and will endanger himself, Will, and Muriel to prove it. Following The Monstrumologist, the first memoir of reluctant apprentice Will Henry, Rick Yancey spins another bloody, gothic horror tale about monster hunters in the Victorian era, for readers 14 and up.

"Examples of literary horror don't come much finer than The Monstrumologist, and Yancey's second volume sustains that high bar with lush prose, devilish characterizations, and more honest emotion than any book involving copious de-facings (yes, you read that right) ought to have…. Here is the introduction of an alternate, monster-plagued 1888 New York, complete with irresistible historical cameos. So far, 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."—Booklist (starred review)
