Description

The mystery at Wounded Sky First Nation continues in the heart-stopping sequel to Strangers, by Governor General’s award-winning author David A. Robertson.

“The ending...is so unexpected that readers will eagerly anticipate [the] third volume.”—Kirkus Reviews

Cole Harper is struggling to settle into life in Wounded Sky First Nation. He may have stopped a serial killer but the trouble is far from over. A creature lurks in the shadows of Blackwood Forest, the health clinic is on lockdown by a mysterious organization, and long-held secrets threaten to bubble to the surface. Can Cole learn the truth about his father's death? Why won't Choch give him a straight answer? Where the heck is Jayne? Oh, and high school sucks.

Editorial Reviews

Cole, 17, is an interesting main character caught in a web of deception and surrounded by threatening people and circumstances. One of the main themes of the book is Cole’s mental health and his need to deal with sometimes crippling anxiety. There are times he can talk himself down, times he needs medication and times that the support from his friends help him cope. Robertson speaks from personal experience, and so his portrayal of Cole is filled with realism as well as understanding and empathy.

Highly Recommended.

The ending...is so unexpected that readers will eagerly anticipate a third volume. A satisfying continuation of a moody, stylish series.

— Kirkus Reviews

without spoiling the ending, readers need to be prepared for David A. Robertson's plot twist...Monsters closes out with a shock and a gasp that will have readers waiting for Book Three in the series, Ghosts, to learn how Cole, the Reckoner, is able to make peace for himself and Wounded Sky. Spring 2019 can't come soon enough.
