GIVEAWAY: The Monstrumologist and The Curse of the Wendigo

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.

So starts the diary of Will Henry, orphan and assistant to a doctor with a most unusual specialty: monster hunting. In the short time he has lived with the doctor, Will has grown accustomed to his late night callers and dangerous business. But when one visitor comes with the body of a young girl and the monster that was eating her, Will's world is about to change forever. The doctor has discovered a baby Anthropophagus—a headless monster that feeds through a mouth in its chest—and it signals a growing number of Anthropophagi. Now, Will and the doctor must face the horror threatening to overtake and consume our world before it is too late. Wanna read the first chapterFind it here

While attempting to disprove that Homo vampiris, the vampire, could exist, Dr. Warthrop is asked by his former fiancĂ© to rescue her husband from the Wendigo, a creature that starves even as it gorges itself on human flesh, which has snatched him in the Canadian wilderness. Although Warthrop also considers the Wendigo to be fictitious, he relents and rescues her husband from death and starvation, and then sees the man transform into a Wendigo. Can the doctor and Will Henry hunt down the ultimate predator, who, like the legendary vampire, is neither living nor dead, whose hunger for human flesh is never satisfied? This second book in The Monstrumologist series explores the line between myth and reality, love and hate, genius and madness.  Wanna read the first chapter?  Find it here.

Gruesome and horribly addictive, this series is not for the easily grossed-out. Although this book is sold in the teen section of most bookstores, adults will love it. The language throughout most of the book demands a thinking person so it's not really for those that hate to think (yes, I get a few of those in my school library).

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!! Sounds like great books. I'm a follower.

These sound different. I have heard of Mr. Yancey's books but have not read any of them. I have been sampling paranormals lately, so these would fit right in.
Thanks for the giveaway.
