Noah Turner sees monsters.

His father saw them--and built a shrine to them with The Wandering Dark, an immersive horror experience that the whole family operates.

His practical mother has caught glimpses of terrors but refuses to believe--too focused on keeping the family from falling apart.

And his eldest sister, the dramatic and vulnerable Sydney, won't admit to seeing anything but the beckoning glow of the spotlight . . . until it swallows her up.

Noah Turner sees monsters. But, unlike his family, Noah chooses to let them in . . .

A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill was actually a pleasure to read! I wasn't sure what to expect and based on the cover, which I must admit, I don't love, I thought it would be a bit childish or a bit on the silly side but I was way wrong. Again proving, don’t always judge a book by it’s cover!

The Turner family, primarily Noah Turner and his sister Eunice, are the primary focus in this horror yet oddly - family saga - with a coming of age theme, how’s that for confusing? Strangely, it really works and it kept my attention throughout the whole book along with keeping me up until 2:30 am to finish it! One of the better horror books I’ve read in a while!
