#BookReview of Monstrous by @marcykate


Monstrous (Monstrous, #1)
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books 
Recommended Age: Children
Genre: Fantasy
About the Book: The city of Bryre suffers under the magic of an evil wizard. Because of his curse, girls sicken and disappear without a trace, and Bryre’s inhabitants live in fear. No one is allowed outside after dark.

Yet night is the only time that Kymera can enter this dangerous city, for she must not be seen by humans. Her father says they would not understand her wings, the bolts in her neck, or her spiky tail—they would kill her. They would not understand that she was created for a purpose: to rescue the girls of Bryre.

Despite her caution, a boy named Ren sees Kym and begins to leave a perfect red rose for her every evening. As they become friends, Kym learns that Ren knows about the missing girls, the wizard, and the evil magic that haunts Bryre. 

And what he knows will change Kym’s life.

Do I Recommend this book? Yes

Notes and Opinions: I've leaned to read these books from children's POV and because of that I've grown to actually like middle grad books. This one was great!! I felt so bad for Kym because of her life and how her dad treated and hid her. You learn she was created for thing and that thing only. She becomes a hero compared to what her father made her out to be. Now that ending. Jeez. That was way too sad. Fitting, but sad. This is a beautiful story that I think children need to read!
